Texting to the next room LOL

Yes daughter and I text to each other in the house so as not to have to get up sometimes or holler through the house . Other times it is because she is in the garage or outside smoking where I can not be around. this morning it was about my 2 hours sleep. daughter- " why did you hardly sleep last night? you know that's not good" me-- " because the humidity was making my breathing bad and I woke up sweating and hurting every time I dosed off. I really wanted to sleep through all the worry over hurricane coming, money we don't have for essentials , and scan coming up Tuesday when said hurricane might already be here" daughter - " you need to stop worrying. hurricane not going to hit us directly. I got paid today and will get some things we need. You need to sleep" me--" I know easier said then done. Like I said I would if my body would let me but when it won't I am awake and worrying" Do you text in the house ?

I really would rather just talk face to face with her but I don't walk around that well with walker and tubing to deal with plus she is too tired after work to come talk usually she is relaxing laying down or out in the garage smoking on the lounge out there and I can't be around smoke now. Glad you are still able to move all around

I wish we had a landline but it would probably cost more in the long run as we have her bf here and he is not too bright. He would make long distance calls which here in Florida is if you call a few areas over is a whole different prefix and would be long distance like if he called his aunt. He doesn't get it. even my being old understands more then he does. That is the reason I make sure he has no access to my account any of them. hard to explain I think. so text is cheaper in the long run.

That makes my crazy. I believe it is rude to leave people out of the conversation. If it's just the two of you, but if there is someone in the room with either of you I consider it not great behavior. So yes, sometimes I text in the house, but never if the person I am texting is with someone else or someone is with me. Wow I complicated that . Sorry

I'm sorry you have so many things that cause you to worry, Bonnie... I was once told that I shouldn't worry about anything that is not under my direct control. I looked at the guy (one of my teachers when I was a senior in High School) and ask him how that worked out for him? He laughed and said that so far, it was a nice suggestion but he was still having trouble implementing it... Personally, I always hated it when a teacher, a pastor or an employer told me something like that! None of them actually followed the advice they so readily passed on to me, so what made them think anyone else was going to be able to use it? *shake my head*
