I kept the landline for Len’s benefit, because if I had to leave him, I would put his flip phone, and the landline next to him. He could contact me, and I him.
Unfortunately he would spend time on one of my android phones, and click on everything. The landline would ring constantly, with telemarketers, and scams. I am not exaggerating but like every few minutes.
It has slowed down now but I would say around 50 a day. Len’s voice was on the answer machine, and although they rarely leave messages it was making me happy/sad, and I realized that is wasn’t letting me be me. If you can understand it.
So with sadness in my heart, I canceled it after 33 years. The good thing will be that I won’t hear that constant ringing from the moment I got up, until it stopped at 9 p.m.
Tiny steps for the new me that has to keep my wonderful memories, and start on my journey on my own.
Yeah, we have to keep doing changes to improve our lives.
Have a wonderful day, Susie. 😊
Hugs. You are making good progress 💖
So hard to make those changes. The heart aches, but, we all know when we must move on. Doesn’t mean not remembering – just time to move forward.

You’re right Susie, it’s only scammers and cold calls on landlines, everyone else uses your mobile
You made a good decision Susie
They say the journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.
You’re moving forward in a new way.
