Weekend

Here is our excitement for the weekend...
Kevin was cooking (not ME) and there was a hole in the bottom of one of the pans so juice was dripping to the bottom of the oven.  About the time I said, "I smell smoke.  We are going to set off the fire alarm."  (It's super sensitive!), it went off.  Only this time, we also managed to set off the house alarm fire alarm.  I ran to the panel and entered the code to shut it off.  It gave me a message that the call to the fire department had been cancelled.  We went on opening all the doors and windows and turning on the ceiling fans and a few minutes later I hear sirens and they are close.  And, yes, you guessed it, they were heading to our house.  The alarm company apparently also tried to call us and when they got no answer because Big Bear's cell phone was silenced, they sent the fire department.  So....good to know how these things work and if we are away from home, and something horrible happens, the troops will be sent.  Oh, and our security camera automatically goes into record mode when the alarm sounds.  I didn't even know that feature!!  
Other than that, our only excitement was taxes are ready for the accountant, the Sunday storm made for great napping weather, AND now the sleet means NO SCHOOL tomorrow! Hello, 3 day weekend!!
