Me time

Three 3-year-olds, a full time job, a part time job and freelance gigs doesn't leave a lot of time that is designated as 'free.' And that time, despite its name, is valuable to me. There are scant few hours that I can truly call my own, so I get a little uppity when they're infringed upon.

Which is often why poor telemarketers even those asking for cash or surveys for a purported good cause are often gently reminded to take me off their lists. Nothing like grimly battling through tantrums, boo-boos, herding the wildlings upstairs for quiet time and fixing oneself a sandwich only to have the phone ring before you get a chance to test your latest tuna-salad invention. Because I'm a Luddite, I don't have caller ID, and it's invariably Rachel or Carmen from Cardholder Services saving me from credit card debt (from my mythical credit cards).
