One of those nights...

Last night was not restful.

First of all, we've been having problems with our alarm system. We thought it was simply a dead battery in the wireless thingamagig but, even after replacing it, the alarm kept on chiming -- as it does if someone opens a door or window. Last weekend, though, while we were away, the alarm itself went off -- and last night, it went off again. It's enough to wake the dead -- if the dead had already been sleeping.

We weren't sleeping because the blasted thing had already been chiming -- even after my hubby disabled it (or thought he had). Finally, he had to disable it entirely -- meaning cutting off its power supply. Looks like a call will have to be made to the security folks since this is obviously something we can't fix ourselves.

We also have a weather radio -- it seemed like a good investment (not that it cost that much). We don't have many tornadoes around here but, after seeing the devastation and death they can cause, we figured having something to warn us would be a good idea. I still think it is -- except it also goes off for thunderstorms -- and last night, the warning must have come on four times. The temptation was to shut it off but then what's the point of having it?

Finally, when everything seemed to have calmed down, the blind, old dog fell off the bed. He was fine but it was still another wake-up.

So, today, I am zombie-like. I would have slept-in but my cleaning lady comes on Thursdays and, for some reason, I can't just slack off while she's here (although I don't seem to have a problem being on the computer).

Anyway, one of those nights.

Insert big yawn here.

For my sleepiness...and for this boring post...
