Back up and running

So we're back from our extended stay at my dad's due to the storm that trashed our area last week. I have to admit, I have a bunch of pics that I wanted to upload to accompany this post to show what we were dealing with but I seem to have misplaced the cord that transfers pics from my camera onto my laptop so unfortunately we're going photoless today. 

I thought about waiting until I located it but then I could potentially be looking at several days again before I could throw up a new post and I promised last time that I wouldn't do that anymore. 

What can I say, I'm a woman of my word.

Alternatively, I do have something to share that I'm SUPER excited about. I realize that posting the next few sentences may incriminate me and my cool factor (or lack thereof) but I "recently" discovered (and by discovered I mean actually used, because I have known about it prior to now) SKYPE.

Last night we "Skyped" my brother, sister-in-law and niece who are currently living in California and I have to say that I am OBSESSED. It could quite possibly be one of the greatest inventions of our generation. I almost cried from excitement of being able to see my niece while we spoke over the computer and have her waving and blowing kisses to me while we live so far away. It makes the distance seem less so. I can't wait to try it out with my Mom in Florida next. It's absolutely great!

The best part is the software to download is completely free! It's terrific if you live far away from your family, grandparents, etc.... and you want to catch up and let them see the little ones as they're getting bigger each day. Plus it keeps your image fresh in the little ones minds as well so they don't forget about you. 

If you haven't tried Skype yet, you should.
