It's been a little over a week since my husband has been working nights and I have been trying to stay quiet in the day so he can sleep. The staying quiet thing is very difficult in a house with tile floors and no doors. The quieter I try to be, the noisier everything else gets. If I close the lone bedroom door so it's quieter in the bedroom (where my husband is), Suki will sit in the hallway screaming MEOW!!! outside the door. Since I am awake, I think it is hilarious. I wouldn't find it hilarious if I were the one sleeping after working 14 hours. And because I am trying to be quiet, my phone has not stopped ringing. It starts at 8AM and does not stop. In this day and age of texting and email, I seriously do not get why anyone would call anyone before 10AM unless it was a matter or life or death. At least text first and ask if it it is a good time to call. Most people are busy in the morning getting dressed or, you know, sleeping. The 8AM callers never say what they want in their message. It's always just call me back. Ok, I will call you back tonight at ten when my husband is at work and I can speak in my inside voice. Hey, do you know how to text? This morning when the 8AM calls came in people left messages. Someone needed a recipe, someone needed computer help, someone needed to tell me something major about someone. I figured I'd just go make the parking lot at Starbucks my new office and return all my calls while I had my tea, in the comfort of my car. Actually, I would've sat outside but it's suddenly freezing out and I couldn't get to my supply of scarves in the closet without causing a commotion. While I sat with my cookbook and my list of calls to return without disturbing anyone so early, I noticed I was not alone in the parking lot with my Starbucks drink and phone. There were many cars in the parking lot with a person just sitting there on the phone. It's good they are not driving and talking but my point being why is everyone up and on the phone so early? Doesn't anyone just want to have their breakfast and read the news on twitter in silence? Or, does everyone have a sleeping spouse and a meowy cat at home they are trying not to disturb? I will call you at midnight to find out what you think.
