Ok, I am up and running with Skype! I got my early Christmas present of a headset and webcam, so I am really wanting to try it out. I called my friend Claire, but had to leave her a voicemail.
So here I sit ready with my headset and webcam, and no one to call. My mom just bought her a webcam as well, but I don't think she has had time to set it up. I also have Yahoo messenger. This is all so new!
I did a test with the webcam, and it is amazing how something so small can be so smart! It looks like one of those pulse ox gizmos they put on your finger in the hospital.
If anyone has any suggestions to send my way, I'm rarin' to go!
As a side note, I got to have coffee with Jeff and Amy Gearhart yesterday. It is amazing how you don't realize how much you miss someone until you get time with them after not seeing them for a long time. Their kids are so much fun! I could have hung out with them forever!!! I kind of got a glimpse of Cooper's future. I have a feeling he is going to be a thrill seeker like his dad!
I heard from Ryan and Amanda Gray and am hoping to get to spend New Year's Eve with them while they are in the Hub City! It is really cool reconnecting with people I haven't seen in way too long!
Mom and I got some Christmas shopping done today, so I feel a little closer to being ready to be gone for three months. However, there is still a ton to do!
I found out there is a 44 lb weight limit per bag for the trip. I'm a little concerned because I think I can pack 44 lbs in toiletries alone! This is going to be interesting!
