Black Eye

I managed to give myself a black eye 2 nights ago.  I was going to include a picture but decided I didn't really want to post a close up of my face like that so you will just have to do with the description.
As I said 2 days ago during the snow storm the lights flickered a couple of times before we went to bed.  Then at 1 AM we were rudely awakened by all of the smoke detectors going off simultaneously.  I usually leave our bedroom door open but V was staying up later so I closed it halfway to keep the light out.  I forgot about that at 1 AM while I was trying to put on my robe in the dark because the power was now out and my head was ringing with 6 smoke detectors going at full pitch.  So with that I ran my face directly into the edge of the door which abruptly stopped my smoke detector progress.  J, still in bed, did ask, "what did you hurt?'  He use to just say, "what now?' whenever I let out a painful noise so I guess he has learned that if I yell something is usually wrong.  Anyway, after I picked myself up off the floor I had to disconnect all of the smoke detectors to stop the beeping and now I have a black eye.

This was different than J's smoke detector problem he had while the rest of us were off to California for the Rose Parade.  When I called home the first day he said one of the smoke detectors was beeping.  I told him where the spare batteries were and thought that would be the end of it.  The next day he said it was still beeping.  I said to press the test button to reset it.  The next day it was still beeping.  I said to check the breakers that maybe they were all wired together and he could just flip the breaker to shut it off.  When we got home it was so late I didn't even try to check on where the beeping was coming from but the next morning on my way to work there it was, in my purse.  I had left my pager at home and it had gone off and was sending a reminder beep every 2 minutes.  J had put up with it for a week.
