It's not you, it's me
This weekend I was having a chat with family about how I never answer my phone, so I'm here to tell you all it's not you, it's me. I'm not dodging you or ignoring you. Being a mom of many and a homeschool mom, I find myself needing to set boundaries to keep from getting distracted and sidetracked away from the things that need to get done everyday. One of the easiest ways for me to do that is to just not answer my phone. You can always send me a text, which I will usually read sooner than later and will get back to you when I have the chance. (unless of course it's really important) You can leave a voice mail, but unless it sounds urgent, there are no guarantees I'll call you back. Most likely you'll get a text when I have down time. I also check my email every so often throughout the day, so that is another good way to contact me. (our computer is pretty much always on because it seems like the kids are always asking a question about one thing or another, to which we turn to Google for answers) So, there you have it.
