I go to the guest bedroom, thinking if I close both doors, I won't hear it and will be able to fall asleep until my alarm at 7am.
A few minutes later, the smoke alarm in the guest bedroom starts chirping. I groan. I close both doors, and go to the couch in the living room. It's over. The hallway starts.
NO JOKE! 3 batteries in 3 different smoke alarms all go out within half an hour of each other.
I wanted to curse.
So I whined a bit and walked to the grocery store at 6 AM, feeling defeated and longing for a good nights sleep.
The grocery store is empty at 6AM. I go to buy my batteries, and yes I bought enough for each smoke detector plus a few, however I can't find someone to check out.
In the meantime I am fully awake, so thanks to my 5 AM chirping smoke detectors, I balanced my checkbook,paid my bills, the laundry is folded and put away, I walked/jogged/ran 3 miles, got caught up on email and it is only 9 AM.
