Beware - DD Can Dial

I've been meaning to post about this since last Friday night, but I've been so busy!

Friday night it's a little after 5 PM, I'm driving home from work and my phone rings. I pick it up and it's Phoebe. Tom was working from home, so we had her take the bus home instead of going to the Y Aftercare. "Where are you?" she asks me.

"I'm on my way home. I'm almost in Hockessin. What are you doing?"

"I was wondering where you were so I called you from your number in my diary."

I had helped her write down both DH and my cell phone numbers after she wrote her home number in a Tinkerbell notebook she is calling her diary.

"What's your daddy doing?"

"He's working in the study."

"OK, well it's snowing and I'm driving, so I'll talk to you when I get home, OK?"

"OK. Love you."

So I get off the phone and five minutes later my phone rings. I see it's coming from the house line again.


"Hi, Mom. Where are you?"

"I'm passing into PA now. I'll be home in a few minutes. I'll talk to you there, OK?"

"OK. Bye."

So we had a talk when I got home to make sure that she knows the rules. I was OK with her calling me that evening, but in the future, make sure that she doesn't call unless it's emergency if it's not 5 PM yet. I could just see it coming. Me talking to my boss and her calling me every 10 minutes asking when I'm leaving.

The "diet" is going well. I had a mocha yesterday, but no bagel or muffin. I had already eaten breakfast, but in the past that wouldn't matter. I have to admit I've come a long way from where I used to be. The minor infractions are what used to be a daily way of life.

So it's snowing here and it's the most we've seen so far, which is funny because no one was expecting it. So it's really slippery outside because the roads weren't treated ahead of time. Phoebe's school has a 2 hour delay so far. I really would like them to just close. Not sure if that will happen. It is still snowing. DH had to go to NYC for work today, so he's on the train right now from Wilmington. I told him to go as there was nothing he could do. Of course the funny thing is I have back-to-back meetings today myself starting at 8:30 AM. Well, I don't think I'll be there. I'll be getting dressed soon to go out and shovel the driveway. It's been really cold here the past few days. I don't want a sheet of ice on my driveway after the sun melts it a little today.

Those phone calls are so cute. (at least right now but I could see how they could easily get out of hand).

Schools are just starting back up around here after having been closed on Monday and Tuesday due to the cold.
