Across the Wire

Last night we had a mini reunion with Tim’s family, all on Skype. It was awesome! Chris & El were in Dubai, Joanne was in New Zealand, Leo was in San Francisco, and we were in Houston…all talking together at the same time. We laughed and laughed, and talked about nothing important. It made me feel like we were all siting together in the same room. Just all of us being in the same place at the same time with the time zones was a feat in itself. Unfortunately we couldn’t connect with my mother-in-law who was flying somewhere over Mexico on her way to Peru. But 4 out of 5 ain’t too bad! Do you use Skype? I am amazed by it, all talking at the same time, through our computers for free. How does it work??? Isn’t technology amazing but kinda freaky at the same time?
