I awoke this morning to the sound of my phone ringing at 7:15am. Who could be calling I wondered in a fog, got up, and picked up the phone to see a 720 number. That's the Denver area, and a second later it hit me this was Tia's old number, and the phone Delaney has.
I called right back, but I think he was leaving me a message, and didn't answer. Doh! We never practiced call waiting, and he's never had a cell phone. Should have explained that.
I tried calling again, but he'd turned off the phone. Doh! Another thing we should have practiced. Call back in 2 minutes.
So I sent him a text, not sure if he'll know how to read it (or get it). I didn't bother with VM since he won't know how to check it. I did listen to his message, and he sounded a little sad, more so than annoyed (that came through too). He said he wanted to hear my voice.
I had another message from last night as well. He'd called at 10:15, which was right when my Mom called and asked me to come get Kendall. I walked down to get her, and that 5 minute stretch was when Delaney called.
Now I feel I'm letting him down slightly. I almost think I should go down there tonight and have dinner with him, let him know things are OK. I might do that after the zoo.
