My hubby has a job that keeps him on the road more than not these days. And it keeps me here pining away for him throughout the day. Even though we couldn't afford for him to be retired... I got used to having him here at home. And now that he's elsewhere I get a little lonely without his company. So we've found a way to keep in touch that is better than the phone and cheaper too. We Skype via the computer. It's video chatting. I get to see him and his surroundings and he gets to see me here at home. It's a win, win situation for both of us. We also Skype with my parents back east. And my best friend. It's the next best thing to being there. Do you Skype???
