No rest for the weary!

So this past weekend we traveled to Shreveport to check on Dad (who's doing great) and to celebrate my SIL Rachel's birthday. We had a great weekend, got some school shopping done, and enjoyed being with the family!

I don't know about ya'll, but when Bryan and I ever go out of town, we always turn off the AC in order to save money. Well that's great and all, but do know what's NOT great? Your husband not knowing how to program the system. That means that when we get home, we have to turn the air on, and wait several HOURS for our house to cool down. Well, last night we got in late around 10:30 and it was 91 degrees in our house! It's not normally such a big deal; however, I had to be up early this morning in order to go babysit at 8:00. Which means that I had to get up at 7:00 am. Yes, I am complaining about this because yes, I'm still currently in summer mode. So yours truly wanted to go to bed, but wasn't able to until 11:30/12:00 when it had finally cooled down to a chilly 85 degrees!

So, I'm exhausted and fall sleep only to be awakened at 2:30 AM IN THE MORNING by a screeching sound! What is that? OH YEAH, IT'S THE SMOKE ALARM IN MY BEDROOM! Was my bedroom on fire? No. Was the house on fire? No. The alarm just decided to go off and wake me from my wonderful sleep. So, I go get hubby he does something and it goes off. We get back in bed and go back to sleep. Well, guess what goes off again at 3:30 AM IN THE MORNING??! If you said our smoke alarm, ding, ding, ding!!! You're right! Stupid thing.

Hubby got up AGAIN and this time just shut the whole thing off. Stupid alarm. So, basically I didn't get ANY sleep last night and had to get up bright and early to babysit. You could say that I've been a little bit cranky today! :) Well, that's my fun story of the day. I'm off to get some real sleep tonight...that hopefully stays smoke alarm free! :)
