Elonna's Availability by Phone

I have found myself becoming very overwhelmed with the number of phone calls, private emails and posts on The Corner along with trying to juggle everything in and around my home/private life. I do not want to get into a position where I just shut down and can go no further with supporting those on Protocel who "find" me.

Because of my commitment to all of you using Protocel, this has been a tough decision for me to make as I understand that when you need/want answers you need/want them now. However, it has reached the point where I need to have at least one day a week where I am not available for Protocel phone calls. As Sunday is God's day of rest, then I'm also going to call it my "Protocel Day of Rest". I am hoping that this day of rest recharges me physically, emotionally and mentally.

During the balance of the week, I will try to make myself available as much as possible for phone conversations. However, I am putting the following Ground Rules in place:

1. NO calls before 9:00 a.m. and NO calls after 10:00 p.m. (Unless an absolute emergency). Rob works day turn and goes to bed between 10:00-10:30 p.m. I really would like to stop his being awaken by phone calls. Please factor in time differences if you are calling from another country. I am located in Ohio, USA which follows Eastern Standard Time.

2. If the phone rings 5 times without an answer, please hang up and try again at a reasonably later time (please not 5 minutes later). If I have not answered by the 5th ring, it means that I am either:
  • Not at home
  • Unavailable because of family time
  • Already on another phone call or
  • Someone else in my family is on another phone call.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
