 you never know what to brace for...what you are going to get etc...
SIL called this morning before we got out of bed. DH didn't get out of bed to answer.  She left a message stating she wanted to talk to him about MIL but that it's nothing bad.  We never hear from SIL so I don't know what to think.
Well, this could mean
A) MIL needs money
B) MIL is sicker than we thought but is ok.
C) SIL wants MIL to live with us for awhile.
D) SIL simply wants to vent about MIL.
E) I have NO idea
 

Please let it be D! I don't mind a good venting ;)

I have a sister that when she calls I think my blood pressure rises from fear of the unknown reason that she is calling, LOL!
Do you have friends/family that cause this reaction in you when they call?

 

 

Update: MIL has pneumonia and is in the hospital. She'll be released by Wednesday and then she is going to the beach.

Pretty much ANYONE calling me aside from my Mama will do this to me. I mean literally anyone and everyone. If I saw your number pop up, I would have anxiety! :-/ Sorry. I'm lame like that. I *hate* talking on the phone.

 Mine?  I cause anxiety...I haz a sadz, lol!  I hate talking on the phone too.
I hate that feeling...my heart feels like it's going to pop out of my chest when certain people call.
I try to brace myself for the unknown drama but it doesn't help. 
I get all giddy for others though.

My sister never calls unless she wants something. She called last night because she wanted me to watch her kid for a week. :( Thank goodness Cameron has testing all week.

when my mom calls or sends a text that says something like, "hey i really need to tell you something.. call me" it usually means that one of my other family members had some type of procedure that isnt really important enough for me to know, but she's really dramatic. Like, I will call her back and she'll say, "okay, so i dont want you to be worried and everything is fine, but i thought you should know that your sister went to the dentist today and she has a cavity."

seriously, she calls me for stuff like that..

 Yay for tests!  He can't be distracted :)
I love my nephews but it's hard to keep them for that long.
