more than a little strange...


so this morning it was really cold in our house, which is not normal...since it's been so so hot for so so long! so i thought it might be fun to turn on the heat for a few minutes just to be able to say i did that in october! so i did, when our heat turns on it makes a faint "tick tick tick" sound before it kicks on. something about these old houses..our other house did the same. so i hear the "tick tick tick", but from ethan's room i hear a "beep beep beep", really high pitched, right in time with the "tick tick tick". at first i thought it was the smoke detector...it resembled that kind of sound, almost. but it wasn't.

it was his toy cash register.

don't ask me how or why this works, but when we turn on the heat and it makes the "tick tick tick" sound...the cash register "beeps" in time to it. i showed the phenomenon to kendall and he stared at me with wide eyes and his mouth made a little "o." it is really weird. what does that mean? this requires more investigation and perhaps the removal of batteries from the cash register...stay tuned.

hah! I had that pinned on the smoke detector for sure because that's what happened at our old house. But the cash register...strange.

That IS weird. I'm curious to know why it does that.

My grandparents have an extra door bell installed in their bedroom so they can hear the main one when someone is at the door (they are so deaf, it's almost a little funny.) Anyway, when their little shi-tzu barks, he sets off the second doorbell because the sound frequency is the same as the doorbell....same thing maybe??
