Phone Call Machine

I really dislike making phone calls.  I just don't like talking on the phone.  I don't even like to schedule appointments.  It just seems like a huge waste of time.  Isn't there someway I can schedule appointments online?!

But this afternoon, I sucked it up and got some appointments made.  Two doctor appointments for Kolby next week.  And I found out when I can register Sage for kindergarten.

Yes, 3 phone calls and I'm pretty sure that is some kind of record. 

And I have realized that having a baby in August is going to be somewhat stressful.  As if having a baby isn't stressful. 

Registration starts the 11th of August.  My due date is the 15th.  Not that I've actually made it to a due date.  So, that means I'll have four kids to take to the school to pick up a packet to register my firstborn for school.  I bet I won't cry at all.  I hope you are sensing the sarcasm. 

And then kindergarten starts the 24th. 

All this from making phone calls.  See, why I don't like making them?

Am I the only one with this dislike of making phone calls?


  1. No, I HATE making phone calls too! I wish everything could be done online. And then, half the time you're stuck with someone with a thick accent that you can't understand! Not that there's anything wrong with an accent, but it just makes things so much more difficult.

  2. I don't mind making phone calls.

    I am in the same boat with being due right around the first day of school. It will be interesting, especially since I have to have a c-section and will be in the hospital for 4 days. Whomever watches the kids will have their work cut out for them with all that beginning of the year craziness. And then I won't be able to drive for 2 weeks and the school is far away...or lift anything heavier than the baby. Good golly, I am scaring myself all of a sudden.

  3. Just posted about this on facebook. I ABHOR the phone. HATE it. Which is why you and I have talked what, like twice on the phone in the last 8 years?

    I pile up all of my phone calls and stress about it for days and then finally MAKE them and half the time I end up leaving a message on someone's machine, anyway.

    Oh well.

    Anyway, you're not alone in your hate of the phone.

  4. I HATE making phone calls. I think for me, it is some kind of reclusive instinct.

  5. I avoid phone calls whenever can :)

  6. You aren't alone, friend. I don't like them either! I acutally used to sorta like talking on the phone. This was pre-kids! My time is so limited now, that talking on the phone is is a distraction. When I do talk on the phone, the girls always seem to time their meltdowns appropriately :) If I have a few free moments, I would just rather savor the quiet. Thus, I feel a bit of a recluse at times, but thanks to email and blogging...I am slightly connected to the world :)) How's that for my rambling phone entry! BTW, if you need any help in August, do let me know! I'd love to help in any way I can. :)

  7. Kyle's the same way - he hates calling people! And that explains why I never hear from YOU! ;) Thanks okay, I can stay caught-up thru email and blogging for now.

    Hope you're doing well! So excited for baby #4!!!

  8. Shouldn't everyone be "online" by now?? :)

    Girl, I have your back in August! You let me watch the middles while you register or do whatever you need!


Comments make my day and bring a smile to my face, so thanks!
