This morning sometime close to 6am Cameron and I were sleeping when our fire alarm started going off. I was so confused and I couldn't figure what was making all that noise, Cameron jumped out of bed and left the room super fast. As soon as he opened the door I could smell something burning. The first thought that went through my head as I climbed out of bed to see what was going going one was, "Crap, did I leave my straightener plugged in?!" Cameron always gets mad when I forget to unplug my straightener because I could, "Burn the whole house down." But, luckily the burning smell was not coming from the bathroom and it was not my straightener. When Cameron saw that I was up he said, "Cass, just go back to sleep." I'm pretty sure I responded in a not very nice tone when I said, "Are you kidding me? You think I can just go lay back down when it smells like smoke and the fire alarm just went off?" We couldn't find anything in our apartment that was burning, smoking or even remotely hot. Cameron went outside to see if it was the apartment below us, it wasn't. Then I realized that our heater had turned on that the vent was hot. Cameron turned it off and decided that we were fine to go back to bed. I was still a little shaken by the whole thing but eventually I was able to go back to sleep.

I hope this isn't a problem in the winter when we actually need our heater!

Maybe your leaky ceiling will put out your fire. Call the Landlord, that is why you pay rent.

Gosh! That's not a nice way to be woken up! Good thing it was just the heater because I need you to stay alive for our crafty day tomorrow! ;)
