I thought I had them all trained to not call, because I just didn't answer the phone, but one friend called today and since she never calls during school time anymore, I thought it was an emergency and answered it.

"Hi I'm going costume shopping while ______ is in school, want to come with me?"

then it took me 20 minutes to get off the phone with her!

I'm going to just unplug the phone from now on! it's kind of frustrating.

Most of my friends won't call during the day, but sometimes they do...or family. Often, I just won't answer it. It is amazing how it throws everything off, especially if we are doing group stuff. I hate it too...the kids know how much I do.

I only have that probablem once in a while and an adult that isn't working with miguel answers the phone (genrally there is atleast two but up to five adults here at a time) If It only me I answer and tell them if it's not just a question that I'll call back.

all the time. it's really annoying... especially since i've right out told people we're "not available" during school hours. but people who know we're home figure we'll stop our daily activities for 'just a few minutes' for them... they just don't, or won't, get how badly it throws things off. arg.
