Why is it that the only time my smoke alarm goes off it's when I'm in bed?!?!?

The time before this one, all of the fucking alarms on our upper floor went off at the same fuckin time!!! WTF?!?!? And of course, it was like 1:30A.M.

Nothing like hearing constant high pitched beeping all over the fucking upstairs.

Needless to say Hubs and I flew out of bed. Sniffing the air like freaks, stupidly flinging all the doors open and, of course, not finding any smoke. Then we have to go to each, individual alarm and reset it. And this wasn't just a push the button and be done with it.


We had to remove each and every alarm from the ceiling. Unplug them. And replug them in.

Poor Little One woke up and wasn't too happy.

Finally got everything fixed. No idea what set it off.

Then this morning. Our lovely smoke alarm went off this morning at 5:30am. Which I guess I should be happy about. Since I only had 15 minutes left before I got up. But still. 15 minutes of sleep is a big-fucking-deal in my book!

And I should be thankful that this time it was only two alarms that went off.

Plus, we only needed to push the restart button.

Then after the Hubs and the Little One are off and out of the house. The fucking thing goes off again!!! So, I climb the ladder again. And this time, I smell something.


I love my Husband dearly. And I'm happy he doesn't like to walk around looking like a crumpled mess. But, Sweetie, isn't all that great at keeping the IRON on the proper setting for his clothes.

So, we have this black, tar, cement on the bottom of it. He claims that you can't unplug it (It's an auto shut-off.) or it won't finish cleaning. And that's why it's there.


So, I unplug the iron. Reset the alarm. And hop in the shower.

Get out, and again. The fucker goes off.


So, I climbed up the ladder, yet again. And dismantled the fucking thing.

I'm hoping that I'm done with it for a long time. Well, after, I plug the stupid thing back in tonight. Ugh.

Are the batteries running out of juice? Husband says ours went off randomly for that reason. It also went off (in the far away hallway) whenever I baked cookies. I'm not sure what that says about my cookies.

OR! Maybe you have friendly ghosties who like to fuck with you! :D
