Done and Done

I am sure anyone who reads this blog has been waiting with bated breath wondering if I ever made my phone calls. Be ready to exhale, I am back to tell of the 50/50 success of my phone call making extravaganza.

Out of 4 calls I had to make, I successful called and made 2 appointments. Feel free to applaud.

This Friday we will take my middle son for a hearing evaluation, where I can not wait to watch their reactions when I say, "well, it seems like he can't hear me because he never does what I ask him to do".

In two weeks my oldest son has his follow up with the asthma specialist, where I will sit and nod throughout the appointment and then leave and ask my husband what it was he just said.

The other two phone calls were not as successful, but I did make them, sort-of. I left a message at one, where I was informed to wait AT LEAST two days before expecting a response. That's fine, I'm in no hurry. Just picking up the phone was a big step.

The last phone call I had to make, I quickly checked the website and found that wonder of wonders, you can send an email and ask them to contact you! Even better, no awkward phone message with lots of ums and yays.

Now the next hurdle for me is to actually answer the phone when (or if) the above mentioned phone calls are returned. I never answer the phone in my house. Mostly because I hate talking on the phone.  Admit it, when was the last time you actually spoke with me on the phone? Probably not for a long time, texting and email are my preferred mode of communication.

What? Doesn't everyone avoid the phone at all cost and use it only in dire emergencies?

Yes! And now with the introduction of caller ID into our home, I answer the phone even less. Shameful, I guess, but I do promise to listen to messages. In a day or two.

Oops, I just called you yesterday! I hope it didn't feel too uncomfortable or awkward! :)
