Woke up at 5 A.M. and All I Got Was This Lousy CO2 Detector
If I see one more memo shoved under my door when I get home, I'll scream. Yesterday, arriving home close to 5:30 (and having to get back out the door for a 7:00 pilates class), I received notice that maintenance was coming either Thursday or Friday--technically not 24 hours' notice--to install "smoke detectors, fire extinguishers and/or carbon monoxide detectors" in all apartments. It appears the boro inspectors who came about a month or so ago didn't think we were up to code.
All I could do after pilates was eat dinner, pick up a few things, and go to sleep. So I just set my alarm earlier (JOY) and got up to finish straightening up and make a huge sign saying, "PLEASE DON'T LET OUT THE DEAF CAT" or something to that effect.
When I got home today, I found the front closet door still open (didn't find any changes) and a new carbon monoxide detector. Right across from the original smoke detector above my bedroom door. I wonder if they'll both go off if there's sm- Never mind, I don't want to find out.
In about five minutes, I'm headed back to school for--you guessed it--Back to School Night. Fortunately, because I dared to ask, I found out I and the other special area teachers have to be present for only the two middle sessions, which because they are back-to-back will cover all of the grade levels. (The principal decided to divide-and-stagger because So Many Students.) My fellow specials are very glad I asked. Friendship points!
At least The Cat doesn't seem stressed out, so maybe she slept through the whole Maintenance Visit. Me? I'm so tired but so glad tomorrow's Friday.
