Last night while my husband was typing away on the computer a Skype window popped up. He accepted the call from Angel Girl and began searching like a mad man for the microphone. He found it just as I heard Angel Girl’s stepmother telling her that for some reason we were unable to talk. I was terrified they would hang up and shut off the computer. They didn’t and we spent over two hours watching her play with the webcam and all the girls were singing, laughing and enjoying just being together.
After I saw her face I began to cry. I had to leave the room. I didn’t want her to see me crying. It was very emotional seeing her just like it always is when I first see her coming toward me at the airport. I cry every single time for at least five minutes.
We can’t talk every day because of the time difference. I can’t call her before 11 at night our time. She gets home from school at 4 in the afternoon her time. There are seven hours of time difference between Alsace and Tennessee. I will talk at least three or four times a week when before it was only once a week and sometimes longer. Every weekend will be heaven because that is when we can spend the most time talking.
I love modern technology!
