Okay, this was my original idea for a TT this week. But then I saw Denise's challenge and I did that cuz it was more upbeat. But now after visiting a bunch of blogs...I really wanna do this list. So here it goes...
13 calls I need to make
I HATE making phone calls. I don't know when the phone became such a dreadded machine. Don't get me wrong, I love to talk to people and I'll chat on the phone forever...but having to make calls (especially for appointments) can't stans it!
1…. My Mother. I need to call her because it's been forever. But I don't like to call for two reasons...she screans her calls and is never home. So I leave a lot of messages talking to her dogs. I also don't like to call her cuz she will kill 90 minutes complaining about her life but not take any suggestions on how to make it better...she just likes to hear herself complain. The sad part is she can't remember what's she's complained about and I'll hear the same story each time I call. sigh
2…. My husband's cousin. We found out from MIL that he has cancer and no insurance. And it's a very sad situation. But how do you start that call... "hey we heard your bad news..." DH did try to call once but they weren't home. We're hoping to do the pass off thing.
3…. I need to call and cancel an account at a bank. It's not my account, but I take care of it and we don't need it. But its the whole calling thing.
4…. I need to call and bugg some folks to send in the money they owe...that's always fun, huh?
5…. I need to call about our hotel for our vacation. I would much rather do this on the computer, but everyone says you get a better deal on the phone and I've found 3 different rates for this place and we want to get the best deal. UPDATE: I called the hotel this morning and was told that I needed to call their national booking because they're having a big storm right now and their systems are down. Wonder if it's the huricane? I haven't been paying attention to where that is. So instead of calling, I just booked the cheapest one online...so that's taken care of! Yay!
6…. I need to call about the tickets for our vacation to the places we wanna go to. There's this one ticket that sounds like it's the best...but it's very vague about what's all included. For the Jamestown & Yorktown it says everything that we wanna do, but for Williamsburg, it just says tour Williamsburg. It doesn't mention what buildings you get with that. GRRR! I'll mention that they should say that in their ad. UPDATE: I think the same storm is causing problems with these folks too. Will try online later
7…. I should call and confirm our airline reservation.
8…. and the car rental...especially since they didn't email me. Update: I'm gonna check my confirmation code online...hee hee
9…. I need to call up the Observatory to make sure they got my reservation for a tour in November...I did it online and didn't get confirmation.
10…. I need to call the zoo and see what's up with our reservation for a night program that they haven't updated me on...that was $30!
11…. I need to call up the Olympic training center and give them a final total of folks who will be going to that tour.
12…. I need to call up Michael's crafts and set up a field trip for November there with a Christmas craft for the kids. That will be fun. She said we could also tour some of the other businesses in that mall...cool.
13…. wow! Is that it already? Oh, I should probably call my brother too.
