Too early to be crazy

The phone rang early this morning, I didn't answer it. Hubby took the message and when he told me who it was, I was like who, WTF? No, take a message, I'm **@@!! sleeping. I'm not in the best mood in the early morning as you can tell. Honestly, unless I'm going on a trip or I'm going to make $1200 that day, I don't want to hear from you unless it's bad news or incredibly good news.

Later I figure out it's the counsellor I talked to a couple of weeks ago and we had an appointment for 10am. I didn't forget, it's in my date book. She's calling from another province and obviously didn't comprehend my area code means I'm 3 hours behind her. Sigh. Rolling of the eyes. It's a common mistake with easterners. (I too believed that the whole world revolved around my city. Now that I'm safely ensconced behind the Rockies, I now only vaguely think about them.) My wacky uncle from England does it all the time but he's in his late 60s, but after the 10th time he did that at 5am, I just told him I'd call him later. I returned her call and left a message that we should just forget this counselling thing. Then of course, hubby wants to know who that was, I tell him and now he thinks there's something wrong with me and why didn't I tell him? Oh, brother. If he was privy to every thought in my head, he'd be sleeping with one eye open all the time!

lol @ sleeping with one eye open! Seriously, our husbands don't want to know whats going through our minds ALL the time. Thankfully my husband learned this. He learned it the hard way, but it's still a lesson. I dislike being woke up by a phone call. I think I might be having an affair with my bed, I do love it so ;o) Have a GREAT day, hon!
*HUGS*

And I don't think we want to know everything that goes on in their minds either!

As a west coastie, we've had more than a few early mornings rudely interrupted by those in other time zones. Do phones ring LOUDER in the morning or is that just my imagination?

Wow! I have just found your blog via ICLW...we have much in common...I need to read more to get the fuller story...A few months off 45, am still in IVF land. Adoption looks not to be an option for us, so the search will soon be for DEs. I sincerely hope you have success. I will keep reading to see you do!

I am exactly the same way in the morning.

My "therapy" is my blog. . .which my husband doesn't know anything about. I don't think he'd care (although, he'd probably make fun of me), but I like having a space to vent that can be private and separate. It's probably the only thing about me that he doesn't know. I think sometimes he thinks I'm having an internet affair. . .

Ugh...that is a horrible way to be woken up. Unfortunately, I can't ignore the early morning or middle of the night calls because they almost always have to do with my hubby's job.

Best of luck in your adoption journey.
