Today my phone has been ringing, ringing, ringing. I lost track of how many phone calls I have gotten. It is usually not this bad, but today it has been. I see many, but not all, of these phone calls as interruptions to our day. I have only answered one of them today so far.
When we are busy with our homeschool day, I want to devote my attention to my children. That is why I am so thankful for an answering machine! I can let those calls go through to the answering machine, and I can return them at a more convenient time. If you do not have Caller ID, you can let your calls go through to the answering machine to screen them. That is much better than being interrupted all day by people who are either a) solicitors, or b) can wait.
Maybe some people won't understand why you can't answer the phone all the time, but as homemakers, we have to prioritize our time and use it wisely.
How do you deal with phone calls during the day?
