why does it seem that when i'm ready to have some peace and quiet, everyone has to call, message, or find some way to interrupt my time?? i finally got home, i'm in my room and trying to watch tv and go through mylot. i keep getting f/b messages, people texting me, people calling me, people coming into my room. my son asked if i wanted anything from the store. ok, he's being sweet. i'm on mylot, my son's friend, is f/b messaging me. knowing him, it's some kind of drama. that's only thing that a 17 yr old boy has in his life. (don't get me wrong, i love him like he's my own childe, but...jeeez...i'm not in the mood for it tonight). my sister texting me to see how my day went. love her for that. since i didn't answer my f/b, the boy calls me. i knew it!!!!!! he's wanting to know what to do about some kind of gym membership and street fighting and how he has so many decisions to make. ha!!!! if he only knew!!!!!!!!!! now my ice cream is melting, i'm missing out on my movie and hubby comes home in one hour! guess i don't get peace and quiet till i go to bed.

It happens to me sometimes, and then when I'm in the mood for talk or any conversation, nobody's available to take me up for it. It's insane!

Everyone wants peace and quiet life but it always can't move on by following your plan and image. So it's just life, sometimes we will get surprise and sometimes will get mad. Maybe our plan usually get changed because of others' action, but please have a think if it means it's just the time that we need change our plan and adjust our life attitude. Be easy, and enjoy your life every day!!!

Simple solution with your problem is to logout of FB, turn off you cellphone, tell everyone at home that your going to sleep and then lock your door. ^__^ I always make it a point that whenever I don't want to be disturb at work, I would tell my kids and husband about it. Like "please give me an hour to be alone for a while." or I would ask my hubby if he will still be doing anything else, and if not I'd ask him to look after the kids while I rest.
