On the way to lock the back door before bedtime, Chris found another use for the cool blinky shoes that you can buy for kids. Joelle’s were left by the backdoor and Chris tripped over them. The room filled with a blinking red light as the house was pitch black. (Since we’re conserving energy, only the rooms we’re in are lit.) For a moment, his heart raced as he tried to figure out what alarm he had tripped. I say it’s a good way to set up an amateur security system. Take that crooks!
