I fell asleep in the recliner yesterday afternoon and was still there at 4 AM this morning. I went into the bedroom and put on my night shirt and tried to lie down in the bed for a few hours before I needed to wake up to be dressed and bathed before the contractors came.

My husband has off work today, but our son had to be at work at 7 AM. I shut the bedroom door so when our son got up, it wouldn't wake us up with him turning lights on and off or shutting doors.

I heard a whirring noise and got up and looked out the window at the neighbor's above-ground pool. The water was calm and I wondered if a pump motor was going out. His pump was shut off. I woke my husband and asked him if he heard the noise and he said it sounded like a UFO-you know, the old Orson Welles War of the Worlds radio broadcast? So we searched out our own appliances, the water heater and a mini fridge we have in the basement because the noise seemed to be coming from the back of our house. I even went outside on the side deck and listened and could hear a train on the railroad tracks which are several blocks from our house.

When we both came back to the bedroom, the noise had stopped...until I shut the bedroom door. The noise came from the window that I climbed through the other day. When the bedroom door was open, no noise, but when it was closed, we heard the whirring noise. So.... I guess we are doing the right thing in getting the windows replaced.

The man that has a hauling business just came to the door and said he has wood in a trailer for us and.... wooden sawhorses!!!! We have a pair of plastic ones and they fall apart every time we use them to cut lengths of wood on. Yippee!!!

I am thankful, I can use them and the Skill saw and get a lot of wood done while hubby is at work.

I am sorry to disappoint any UFO hunters, but glad I found the source of the noise and that no motors were going to burn up.

  The thought of UFOs has always intrigued me. Glad that you found the source of your noise, but sad that the "adventure" ended. emoticon

    You always have something going on! No wonder you can't sleep! Did you get a good amount of sleep in your recliner?

Congrats on your new saw horses!!
