Why was I distracted, you may ask?
Because I was trying to get in touch with her all evening and could not!
I knew she was working all day so I waited until I was driving home to give her a call. I got the voicemail. No big deal; left a birthday message and said call me back, etc.
I went right from work to get my hair cut and ended up there forever. I checked my cell on the way out and still no call from Mamacita.
I got home around 8 and called again. Still, the voicemail. Another message.
This is when I release my OCD and start calling every five minutes. Then I thought, maybe there has been an accident on their road – there often is, as it is a busy road with too many trucks and too many curves and too many speeders, and for some reason, most accidents cause their phones to go out.
So I called her cell. It didn’t even ring, just went to the voicemail which she does not have setup. I think I tried this three times in between calling the home phone.
Finally, I got online and emailed her, just about the same time I posted last night.
So I call Dad’s cell. He answers and says she’s fine, their phone is fine, she’s just been on it all that time.
My, what a popular Mama I have!
She finally called me around 10 and I finally got to wish her a happy birthday.
