To top it all off I’m hearing voices

Okay, so it’s not as bad as it sounds. Nope  the line edits haven’t sent me off the deep end. In fact I was able to work about twelve hours on my manuscript yesterday so that gave me a really big boost. I’ll likely post a bit more about that when I have more time. I have until the 17th to complete the work before it goes to the designer. Woohoo!! Things are closing in quickly. I can hardly wait!

So what’s this about the voices?

Yesterday morning bright and early, my daughter phoned to chat and I could hear my neighbour having a conversation with someone. Now mind you, his voice wasn’t booming in loud and strong but you could clearly make out parts of his conversation. It was as if he was in the background talking, if you know what I mean. My husband called to report the situation to the phone company, all but demanding that it be fixed, and was told someone would be out Tuesday to do the repairs.

I find this very disturbing and wonder just how private our conversations are? This isn’t the first time we’ve experienced this problem with Igor. ( He’s a Russian gentleman…Don’t you just love the name?) In fact, many people in our area have had this problem with hearing unwanted voices. I’m not sure if this is a rural thing or if city phones are just as whackie. So, this evening as I was using the phone I could hear Igor again. (I’m not sure if he spends huge amounts of time on the phone or if we’re just somehow in sink.)   So I guess I’ll avoid the phone and go back to work on the line edit.

Wish me luck, not only with the line edits but with getting my phone repaired! And hopefully none of you are hearing voices.
