There’s nothing like being woken up with the news of the day on a group text. You should try it. As I’ve mentioned before, my daughters and I have a group text with a continuing saga of our daily lives. We don’t include Andrew in this because he probably wouldn’t be interested in this girl talk.
Two of my daughters – Kerri and Jessie, live in Atlanta and the other two – Amie and Terri, live in Louisiana. Having young children, the Atlanta bunch are up early for school at the crack of dawn and are actually an hour ahead of me in another time zone. The Louisianians are up with their children for school and then off to work.
On the other hand, since H has retired, our internal clocks have been laid to rest and we’ve learned to sleep a little later in the mornings. We also go to bed a lot later at night to compensate.
I keep my phone on and charging by the bed at night because if there was an emergency most of my family – including all of my children – don’t even know our landline number. But Joe, the medical advisor knows it well! We only keep that landline because…well, that’s another story.
If I turn the ringer off it defeats the purpose so I usually keep it in vibrate mode. I forgot to turn the ringer down last night and was awoken early to the special group text notification and the chatter between sisters.
Background notes – my grandson, Will is on the football team and his school was selected as spirit school of the week. KPLC was on the scene early this morning.
Back ground note – Pierson is my new grandson and # twelve grandchild, born in September, and Sydney is his older sister – almost four. Here’s a pic of Pierson because I don’t think I’ve announced him yet! Isn’t he a sweetie?
So my day has begun! How is your day going or is it too early to ask?
