Blah, blah, blah

"Blah, blah, blah".  Three things I haven't been doing much of lately.  For some reason I've come to the conclusion that I enjoy life much more when I'm not talking.  Shit, I can't believe I just typed that.  I've NEVER been one to not want to talk or want to  be heard.  Most times, I'm the one who always puts in her two cents.

The other night while at my parents house, we were watching TV and I realized I didn't say a word to either one of them for almost two hours.  It was wonderful!  All night long at work I customers, on the phone, to the person I work with and then when I coach during the day, I'm always talking.  The only time I don't talk is when I'm sleeping and 99% of the time, I text rather than make a phone call.  Hmm, the more I think about it, I hate talking on the phone.  Most of my communication is done via text or email.....and I prefer it that way.

So, I'm sitting here rolling my eyes at myself for thinking about how I used to gab 24-7 on my phone in college and even a couple years ago.  Think I'm kidding?  For example, in college I used to sometimes go over my monthly minutes...which were 450.  Now,  have 550 a month (family share plan) and of those 550, I used 48 minutes last month.  I kid you not.... 48!  Sidebar: I used 2,398 texts though......

So on that note, I'm going to shut my mouth more often.  Silence is golden and duct tape is silver.


  1. My family occasionally has quiet sundays. We try not to speak unless it's truly necessary. It kind of freaked the kids out at first, but they got used to it and eventually loved it. Everyone needs quiet time....when else will you hear the birds chirp?

  2. That is a wonderful idea! I think people forget how important silence is sometimes.
