Smoke Detectors & Vaulted Ceilings

So, it happened. I knew it was only a matter of time. The battery of the smoke detector in our bedroom died. And so the chirping began. At 2:00 in the morning. Why does that always happen in the middle of the night--in the room with the vaulted ceilings? Of course, we don't own a ladder, so I had to stand on Jeremy's shoulders. I didn't know what I was doing and accidentally pressed the test button, so that every single alarm in the entire house went off.  I could hardly reach, but I was able to pull out the battery--which we all know does not stop the chirping.  (Remember the Friends episode with Phoebe and the smoke detector?!) Luckily, we had a battery, and  we were able to make the switch. You know, you never know when your high school cheerleading skills are going to come in handy.  And, I'm just sure that Jeremy really appreciated my, "Ready one two's" at two in the morning. But, in spite of the three ring circus in our bedroom last night, I still LOVE vaulted ceilings. Check out these lovelies. 

P.S. Remind me to buy a ladder when we move...

  2. My mom once ripped a smoke detector out of the ceiling because she couldn't get the chirping to stop in the middle of the night. Don't mess with that woman when she's tired! Glad to know it didn't upset the kids too much, though! I love the look of vaulted ceilings, and these pictures are all beautiful!

  5. Glad there were no injuries! My hubby totally clipped the wires on our smoke detector-now we have to replace the whole darn thing.

  6. We have a beautiful vaulted ceiling in our living room. In fact, it was one of the reasons I liked the house so much when we decided to buy it. I found out the hard way with the smoke detector situation. We have one way up there too. I have had to climb to the top step that leads up to the attic and lean way over with a broom to knock it off the ceiling. (Also at 2am by the way.) I must find a better way.
