OMG! What a day! In the middle of the night...like 3:00 this morning something in the house alarm system started...scared the poo out of both of us. But then it stopped pretty quickly...we were both wide awake but at least it was quiet. We put a call in to the repair guy this morning and he said he could get here tomorrow. Well that seemed fine until around noon today when the whole thing went crazy...the most horrible noise ever...it was like the noise in the night times 3...it was going off in the house and outside the house...the neighbors were coming out of their houses....they were calling me from the monitoring service to see if I needed the fire truck. OMG what a zoo...then the dogs started howling and crying. It was awful. After talking to the nicest service guy, we got the whole thing powered off...not another sound. They'll be here next Thursday to work on it. We never set the alarm and I had changed the code last year...well, I didn't write down the new code and I couldn't remember it. The guy was wonderful...he kept saying that it was OK and the service guy would fix it all when he comes. OMG, I thought I was going to go nuts. It's quiet now. Thank goodness. After wasting 2 long hours on this whole crazy episode, I got upstairs for some sewing. I needed quiet...just me and my machine. Well, I'm very happy to say that I finished my star quilt...I had my man hold it up so you could see it. What a fun project...quick and went together very nicely.
I'll take it to be quilted when I get back from Birmingham next week, but I wanted to show it to you done.
Hanna cooperated and is going to stay far enough off the coast so I'll be going to get mom tomorrow, she'll stay the night with us and then we'll be on the road early Friday morning...Hampton here we come! Hopefully we'll be back on Wednesday...mom has a meeting and her hair appointment on Thursday...she's amazing.
