Random schtuff....

I'm not feeling like writing about any one thing in particular so I thought I'd just post some random thoughts.

Today was Owen's first accident free day since we re-started potty training last week. It's been 1 week. He did his first #2 in the potty chair. I was a big deal. Literally and figuratively. And I photographed it, mostly so I could show Morgan. And Owen showed his grandma.

Morgan's mom is visiting for a few days. We've been prepping Owen for her visit since he doesn't see her often. We showed him a picture of Morgan's parents the other night while we were talking about this. He pointed to grandpa and said, "what that name?" and I said, "that's grandpa."And Owen said, "I like him".

Today was a beautiful day. Even a bit too warm. It was 81˚ at about 7pm. It's cooled off to 69˚ now and should only be in the low 70's tomorrow. More my temp. It was great to have all the windows open while I was cleaning though. Nothing like fresh air and a good breeze to air out the house!

And for the randomest of thoughts tonight. I don't like to talk on the phone. I often don't answer the phone during the day unless I have an idea of who it might be. Or I don't answer because I DO have an idea of who it might be! I hardly ever answer during naptime. Either I'm napping too or I am getting stuff done. I am also terrible at returning calls. I tend to forget. Or put it off and then forget. Or just dont' want to do it. And it the worst with people I don't know. Like calling to get information. Or to update our insurance! I've been putting that off for like a year! Or to make appointments. I make Morgan call the handy man. He's a very nice guy. I just don't want to make the call. My favorite person to call though, is my uncle. He doesn't actually have a phone connected to his land line. So he never answers it because he can't. I just leave him messages. And if it's necessary to call back he will. But mostly I just leave him a message about what I need to (usually a family gathering) and he shows up. And I go over in my head what I'm going to say when I call someone too. Especially if I'm going to leave a message. Because I don't want to sound dumb. It takes me forever to record my greeting at work. I need to get it just right. No mistakes. There isn't a greeting for our voicemail on our landline or on my cell phone. As I've gotten older the whole phone thing has gotten worse. Or developed. I talked on the phone all the time when I was younger! But now I just prefer not too. Except certain people. Some people I don't mind talking to. It's just one of my weird quirks!

so what would the layout for that look like? The #2 I mean. I can think of a few things but I'll keep it clean.. and to myself!

Heather, I don't like to talk on the phone, either. It feels like a waste of time to me, quite often! I use caller ID a LOT. But I prefer to call ppl than to have them call me, so I can get off the phone when I need to!
