How in HELL do you spell Mississippi (did I get it right?)

Our house alarm has some type of battery issue. It beeps precisely every 10 seconds. TEN SECONDS. Ready?
Beep
One Mississippi, Two Mississippi, Three Mississippi, Four Mississippi, Five Mississippi, 6 Mississippi, 7 Mississippi, 8 Mississippi, 9 Mississippi, 10 Mississippi
BEEP.

Apparantly you can only mute it temporarily.

They can come out tomorrow. But I have to work and Mark has to work. I may have to rip this entirely off of the wall. Our appointment is NEXT Thursday from noon to five. Yeah. Great.

ReevesFarm is one of my favorite people ever.

OK, yes, she nominated me for this award. And I love her for it.

But she has the best frickin stories. She doesn't rant (like me) - she has a normal life (ummmm....I guess that's all relative) and tells the best stories. Don't believe me? Yeah, go to her blog and ask about the story about her son "Magnuts". Please....ask her.

Honest to God, when I read the story, I had tears pouring down my face.

I found her thru Mama Drama. And she is a MUST read for me - daily...or at least as often as I can find time to go thru my blog list. But she is ALWAYS at the top of my list to read.

Now, I think I am supposed to nominate some folks, but I am tired. It's past my bedtime and I will do it soon.

ReevesFarm - you are the best. I may nominate you right back. Is that against the rules? And next MamaDramaConQueso is supposedly sometime soon. Southwest Airlines.... Come on...I dare ya.

Yup. You rock!

Right on girlie.

Batteries? Does the alarm need batteries...I found that out the hard way when our smoke detector did that. Sounds simple enough...but at three in the morning...I'm not thinking batteries.

Congrats! I'll have to check her out.

You are an excellent speller! :o)

Our detectors are wired into the house, but have batteries for power outages. When those things need changed, it beeps like that.

Oh, the ones that are wired into the house are horendous. I once had them die at night and go off and on all night long, so I feel your pain.

And yes, it is Mississippi. ;)

You absolutely rock! Congrats!

You totally deserve it, chaquita.

PS. Smash your smoke detector with a broom handle. That's what I always do.
