2.) Got home to find that the dog had gotten into the garbage and it was strewn about the kitchen.
3.) And the alarm was continuously beeping.
I tried resetting the alarm to no avail. Everything seemed to be working fine, but it was just beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Called the alarm company emergency service line. Had to wait for a call back. Finally got a call, and he took me through several paces, and nothing worked. He finally had me go into the basement, and disconnect the backup battery and the main power.
And it was still beeping.
This made entirely no sense. I went back upstairs, and sure enough the alarm power was completely out but it was still beeping.
Until I opened the closet door, and it got louder.
Apparently at some point, somebody put the CO2 detector in the pantry, and put a bunch of stuff on top of it. And the pantry is right next to the control panel.
Reset the CO2 detector, and all was fine.
Cleaned the kitchen. Chastized the dog.
Got new water for the pets.
Cooked some cow on the grill.
Started a load of laundry - bedding.
Hooked the alarm back up.
Finally sat down at 9:00.
A bit tense. Coping skills are a bit off today, but I think I'm okay now.
