Manic Monday #160

Do you screen your phone calls?

I'm not sure what you mean by this.
Do you mean I first look at the number?

Yes.
We've done away with the house connection a few years ago, because the kids reached puberty and our bill the top.

So I carry my cellphone/mobile phone with me when I'm ready to receive a call.
But I don't want any break ins in my free time anymore from people who have all the time of the world to call or from people who think I should jump for them.
So I've given only my best friends and the psychiatrists of my children my number and no one else.

I do have a quick look at the number when the telephone rings.
When I don't know the number, I won't take the call.
That way people have to ask me first when they give my number to someone else.
Works perfect!!

When was the last time you lost your temper?

That was a long time ago, because when I lose my temper my autistic kids and their father lose their temper too.
But I do know my moments of utter despair, like yesterday when son 2 started to get a meltdown about his bad computer just when I had a few moments of rest.
This time he could be stopped, so that was a relief, but when I found out this morning that he refused to sleep last night... Ugh.
Instead of getting angry at him I just walked away and got the laundry out of the machine.
When I came back a little later he was asleep on the couch.

Not the best place to crash, but in this case I won't wake him.

When you're lost, do you ask for directions?

Oh yes.
When I was younger I didn't dare to do so.
Now I do.

Most of the time when I go somewhere and I don't know the area I prepare myself.
I'm enthousiastic about maps and other things on internet which enable me to get to know the area.
