Not A Great Way To Start The Week

It was about 4:30 AM when the dog just had to Pee, so Mr Weenie gets up and takes the dogs out to be watered and everyone comes back to bed.

About 4:45AM our Burgular alarm beeps ...

I shoot up, instantly awake ... Mr Weenie, alot slower in coming to...

Mr Weenie says call the police, I call and tell them our burguler alarm went off and they said they will send the police (I hear bugulary in progress in the background), she stays online with me and asks questions like "do you hear sounds, do you know which door, have you looked out the window, don't go downstairs, etc" until the Police arrive.

The police look around outside and don't see open (re broken) windows or doors so they come to the front door and Mr Weenie goes down to great them.

They look in every closet, every room, behind furniture, and the basement (which I hear Mr Weenie and policeman downstairs talking about the finishing off of the basement we are doing) and they don't find anything.

Thank-god ...

One of the reasons why we actually called the police was because last week we found a cell phone charger on our patio, which meant someone was on our patio last week while we were at work and the other reason is that we have juvinile deliquents that live behind us and who have been karted off the jail more than a few times.

So the police leave, Mr Weenie gets ready for work and leaves and I go back to bed with the dogs.

I am lying their facing the window, couldn't sleep so I roll over facing towards the door and realize there is a green light blinking (the light on our alarm system is green when not set) so I look at the alarm and it's red (means its set) and then look up.

The freaking smoke alarms have green lights on them, normally they are a solid color. So I am trying to think why is it blinking then I remember that when the batteries are now it will blink green to let you know they need changing ...


Crap ... that is what the beeps were ...

It will beep every 3-4 hours to remind you to change the batteries.

The smoke alarm beeps sounds EXACTLY the same as the door open beeps on the burgular alarm.

I feel real embarassed now ...

But let me tell you, I have been putting off taking the CCW class but the "scared shitless" feeling I had waiting for the cops to come put jesus into me and I will be registering for that class this week.

Yay for QW! Taking care of yourself is ALWAYS the right thing to do. But you've also reminded me I need to go renew my permit.

A gun in the hand beats a cop on the phone: every time.

It's better to have it and not use it it, then need it and hot have it.
