The Fire Alarm Works

Since we moved, there has been a lack of major disasters to write about. I'm sure that will all even out some time. It's been nice. It's very quiet, at least in comparison to the previous place. Part of it is probably because we're sleeping on the top floor, so there are no windows on the sides, only the ends. So the party boys next door haven't really been bothering us. I'm knocking on every piece of wood near me, right now. We did have a little bit of an incident the other night. Somewhere around eleven the fire alarm started shrieking. Woke us right up, let me tell you! Turns out it was because the back up battery was running out. I guess that's why the little green light had been flashing for two weeks. Anyway, the ceilings are so high that our step ladder wouldn't reach. So, half asleep and confused, we climbed up onto the bureau to get it down. Probably not the smartest thing, but we do silly things when we're asleep.
