I should have listened to my brain.

Last night, during what was quite possibly the best sleep I’ve had lately, I was awoken by a single repeating beep. I listened. I got out of bed and went downstairs. Yep, the damn CO detector battery was uttering its dying beep. At 3am.

WHY DOES THIS ALWAYS ONLY EVER HAPPEN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT?

Ironically, just yesterday I had a passing thought, wondering when we last changed all the batteries, as we should be on an annual schedule (like New Years, our birthday, etc.) and we’re not.

I should have listened to my brain.
