I love Skype. It lets me visit my children when they’re not at home or living in Calgary. I’m the kind of mother who wishes all her children would live in her hometown forever. I really miss them when they’re away. One thing that helps is Skype.
On Sunday morning, my day off, I Skyped my son Ben who is studying in Exeter, England this semester. I put the laptop on the kitchen table and chatted with him while I cooked scrambled eggs. My other son John who’s still in high school and living at home was also in the kitchen so we all talked and laughed and were together as if we were in the same room. The only bad part was that Ben couldn’t eat with us but he didn’t really want eggs at 4 pm his time. What seems strange and wonderful to me even after using Skype for years is that this cross-Atlantic visit was all free and the video and sound were quite good.
Yes that is me in my flannel pajamas…lol.
If you don’t already use Skype, you too can be connected to the people you care about and enjoy.
