I am so glad these days are over.
For a year, Ian was in the Middle East, and our only communication was through the wonderful free service of Skype.
And, somehow, his internet was better than mine, and I could never get a clear picture of him on my internet, though he could see me just dandy. I eventually resorted to pulling up a recent picture of him (that's him at the Dead Sea I think.)
Did I mention we had only been dating for 8 months?
And that for 5 of those 8 months he was away at school in Virginia?
And for 2 out of the remaining 3 months, I was a way at a sleepaway camp (as a counselor) in Pennsylvania?
So, for our 8 months in the same country, we were only in the same state for 4 of those weeks.
It was a miracle we made it.
Did I mention that we both hated talking on the phone?
It truly was a miracle, thank you God!
But we made it, and now are preparing our family and friends to talking to us through Skype as well. And if you have any one who is a distance away, I would tell you to both get this free program! It's so much better being able to "look" into their eyes while you talk!
