I woke up last night around 3am (well, technically it was this morning) and there was a foul, horrid, scary smell permeating the house. After snooping around to try and figure out where it was coming from, I woke up T. She then snooped around and tried to figure out where it was coming from. Then, little C woke up, who has very alert senses and he couldn't go back to sleep. Eventually, we decided to be safe and evacuate the house until morning, at which time Grandpa and T could return to the home front and call the gas company to find out what was causing the odor. Was it a leak? I don't know...but it made me sick and gave me a headache.
So, off to Grandma's house at 4am. The kids did very well (surprisingly) and we snuggled them in and they went back to sleep until 8:30am. YEA!
T and Grandpa returned and the gas company sent someone to the house. Luckily it was not a leak, but something he thought came through the vents from the outside. The neighbors were painting their house, so we went and smelled their paint...nope, not the smell.
Hmm...we have no idea. Thank goodness it's almost gone (a bit strong still in our bedroom, yea, really lookin forward to going to bed...NOT!) I have such a sensitive nose and it will make me sick...so here I sit, in the living room.
Anyhow, it definitely felt and smelled like a chemical reaction of some sort. It was awful.
As little T said when we were leaving at 4am and we had just woken her up, "What's dat yucky smell mommy? Let's get away from it and go to Ga-Ga's!"
Thank God for Ga-Ga and Grandpa!
