Foggy Brain

My Photo
February 4, 2016 8:31am CST
My brain is fogging this morning. I'm tired, which isn't all that unusual. My alarm was set to ring at 8:30am, so not an early morning. Lo and behold, at 7:00am the phone buzzed. I glanced down at the phone number which I did not recognize. I didn't answer thinking I was too tired. However, I was extremely miffed that this uncalled for wake-up caller did not leave a message. In other words, it was most likely a wrong number. GRRRRRRRR! So it's bad enough you wake me, but you wake me unnecessarily. So I'm drinking my coffee while I enjoy some quiet. It's nearly time for me to wake the children. Quiet time is almost over.

I had a hard time getting up this morning, and for all of the coffee that I drank it did me no good. Let's hope for a better start tomorrow for us both.

This is one of the reason why I do not keep my cell phone in the bedroom, so I cannot hear it.

My friends am family know when to call and when not to call. I would be wild if it was a sales pitch, but they usually don't start bugging me until later.

i'm guessing wrong number because most folks know better than to call me that early

@jillybean1222 The only calls I ever got that early were either from the phone service telling me school was canceled or a delayed opening. Once,nit was bad news.

Often times I will get a random text from one of my children in the early morning hours. I sent them back a message to let them know that I love them, but would appreciate not getting a text until at least 6 a.m. after the alarm clock goes off!

@jillybean1222 If the phone rings at a certain hour of the day, it rarely is a good call.

I hate when the phone rings and I rush to answer it only to find it's a telemarketer.

i don't always answer the phone because of that, but i figure if it is "real" they will leave a message

@jillybean1222 Usually when they call I'm right here and my phone is at my fingertips, literally, so I'm answering on the first ring, even if I'm typing on here. I get their first how are you speil and I'm hanging up.

That's why I leave my cell phone in a different room. This tree is amazing, looks like a fantastic climbing tree. My youngest son who is almost 24 by the way would scramble right up that.

That's so annoying to be woken unnecessarily, and you can rarely get back to sleep, can you?

We have cloudy weather here and I never feel all that good when the barometer is in that position. Enjoy the quiet time at least!!

I don't have those annoying phone calls any longer thank goodness. I know that can be so irritating when all you want to do is sleep. Oh well your calm time is almost over now with the children waking up soon. Have a wonderful day.

i turn off my phone before i go to sleep. if not the phone, the mobile data. one of the things i don't like is having sleep cut off
