cordless phone range? forget it -how about "mom range"?

Called a friend of mine today and she was getting ready to walk out the door. she grabbed her husbands lunch, her toddler etc. and the conversation continued. All of a sudden she said - "I wondered why my phone was loosing the signal". She had walked out the door on the cordless phone and was driving down the street before she realized it. Of course I didn't admit this but I so did this about 4 weeks ago.

Running out the door...... again.

Your mileage may vary.......


Welcome to my blog. I sit here typing, but I should be getting ready to get in the car...... again. Kids to pick up, drop off, it never ends. Wish there was a frequent mom mileage program. I am fortunate enough to be able to work at home, so I get to drive my kids to and from school everyday and everywhere else from jobs to the mall, the movies and more.

While I realize that I am no longer cool in the eyes of my passengers; I haven't been relegated to picking them up and dropping them off a block away either. But hey, make sure you turn down the radio if she is in the car. It doesn't matter if it was a song that she was listening to on an popular station. You cannot have any music escape the vehicle when the doors are open or about to open. Hey - they tell me the music is too loud. That's funny. Isn't it suppose to be the other way around? One thing I have found, is that talk radio is really annoying to highschoolers. Even if you catch a spirited program with a great topic. Every once in a while they get in and hear something that catches their interest and we get to have a brief conversation. The oldest ones have issues with my driving too. Hey, if you want me do get you to school in 4 minutes and it is a 7 minute commute, don't question my methods. Life was much simpler when they just got in and hung on.

Anyway, you are welcome to join me on my journey.
