Hoping That Phone Doesn't Ring

So, I often keep my phone on vibrate while I'm at work.  Then, I leave, shove my phone in my purse, get the kids, unload the car, make dinner, put things away....DH leaves for work around 7:00 PM.  As I finish cleaning up the kitchen, I take my phone out of my purse and instead of keeping it on vibrate while the kids go to bed, I turn it on loud.   We don't use a land line anymore and I wonder, God forbid, if anything ever happened, would I hear my phone ring if it was on vibrate?  I don't ever want that call...although DH says his Sgt. would come over to our house along with a few other guys that I know. 

I just put my phone on loud as I get ready for bed.  I hope all my friends out there never get that call....or door bell rung in the middle of the night.  Hopefully history doesn't repeat itself...I was the only one home when they rang the door bell to tell me about my Dad 21 years ago.

Be safe out there!


  1. That's something I've had to get used to. I am someone that always forgets to take my phone with me or I leave it in the car, i lose it under the couch, etc. and at bedtime every night I turn the house upside down looking for it because I NEED it next to me while I sleep. I have to hear it because you never know what it will be. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. I do the same thing. I could care less where my phone is until night comes...

  3. OH, Stella that is such a sad story! I'm so sorry that you had that happen to you at all must less while home alone!
