Another Break-in Attempt?

A little past 7PM, while on my way home from work, I got a call from my home security system alerting me that the alarm had been set off.  Could it be another attempted break-in?  It was just about one year ago when someone attempted to break into my house.  No way!  Our family has had this house for thirty years without an incident.  There was just no way that we could have two attempted break-ins in two consecuitve years.  I rushed home as quickly as I could, but I was still about 10 minutes away.  When I got home the siren was still blaring, so I figured if there was a thief he would have been long gone by now. But I grabbed one of my hockey sticks just in case. When I checked the security system, it revealed to me that the master bedroom motion detector had been set off. That’s odd, since one of the doors or windows had to be breached if it was due to a thief. I made my way into the bedroom and noticed Alice’s birthday balloons were swaying in front of the motion detector. The alarm must have been set off when the heater kicked on. I guess I shouldn’t have put those balloons there. Man, I gave myself quite a scare!
