Personal Phone Calls

How many "personal" phone calls do you get a week? And I don't mean from you DH.

I mean someone calling just to say Hi or to tell you some news, etc.

I will get no phone calls or maybe one from my Mother-in-Law. Now that I'm involved with Brownies, I get calls from a my co-leaders, usually about something, but we always chat too. And occassionally a family member will call to invite us to a b-day party or to tell me someone's in the hospital.

DH has been out of town with the girls all week. I almost always notice this when he is gone though. I come home and the answering machine has one or no messages on it (a sales person) and I get one call from him when I'm home.

What about you?

hmmm. Maybe 4 or 5? One or both of my brothers usually call at least once a week just to say hi. My dad calls at least once a week, as well as my mom. One or two of my girlfriends will call to check in. Once in awhile one of my neighbors will call, but we've only lived here about 8 months so I dont know anyone super well.

thats about it.

My family is very chatty. Sometimes good...sometimes bad. My mother and I talk almost every night. I talk to my father about three times a week, my aunt at least once a week, my sister three/four times a week and FIL once or twice a week. I ignore when my MIL calls so I don't talk to her very much.

Not too many personal ones. I do get several a week from my mom, but Beth Ann and I communicate a lot on e-mail. I get a call once in a while from a friend, but that's usually to make arrangements to get together, not to chat. I don't enjoy chatting on the phone.

Does bf count? He's not my dh ... lol I get about 5-10 calls from him a week.


Okay, him aside. I get probably 6-10. 2 or more from my parents. 2 or more from my brothers. 1-2 related to PTA, etc. 1-2 from work/social friends. I have 2-3 long term friends that each call once every couple of weeks.

Choose your friends by their character and your socks by their color.  Choosing your socks by their character makes no sense and choosing your friends by their color is unthinkable.

About 2-3 week but that is only because 2 of my DDs attend college out of town. Subtract phone calls from them it is more like 1-2 a month. But I hate talking on the phone so its fine with me.

I must talk on the phone a lot more than most of you! I have one friend who I talk to almost daily, sometimes more than once a day. I also talk to my mom about every day, and now that my 4 1/2 yo dd knows the number, she wants to call Grandmom several times a day ; ) I usually talk to a couple of other friends about once a week.
