Do you do this?

I'm a SAHM. So my conversaions usually consist of toddler and dog things. That said when someone calls I find myself (sometimes) so desprate for adult conversation that I babble on about meaningless things trying to kep on the phone. Unfortunatly I don't realize I'm doing this until after I get off the phone. Then I feel like an idiot :(

P.S just did this to DH's cousin that has an executive job at The Ronald Mc Donald House.

She had to tell me she had to go work to get me off the phone. UGH!

  • Thankfully most of my friends are also SAHM's so we all do it haha. We can all talk for hours about our kids, our pets, our laundry, our husbands, neighbors etc.

  • I totally hear you girl. I recently found a mom's club in my area. Hopefully spending some time with them will help.

  • Oh, you're definitely not the only one. I don't talk to most people, though, so I do it to my Grandmother, and I'm sure I drive her nuts! lol She's usually one to stay on the phone for a few minutes, but I swear, I get started and 5 minutes in she's like, "Uh... well, I better get to work! I have LOTS to do, I have to get these quilts done. I love you!" and then she hangs up. lol Pathetic, I know!
