Connection Established

After a long yet uneventful journey, the husband arrived safely in Finland. He attempted to call me but Skype doesn’t play nice with our landline’s security screen settings. And when he tried my cell phone the connection kept cutting out - so that I barely heard every fifth word or so. We wound up going old school and using talk. It felt more like 1996 than 2006. But it was oddly comforting and, dare I say, sort of romantic-like.

Other than the husband’s adventures, it’s been a fairly quiet weekend. The little man had a decent swimming lesson yesterday, and I was able to try out my nerdy new goggles. While they performed well they did draw some odd looks from passers by (but hey, I’m used to that sort of thing). Today we dropped by my folks’ house for a visit. The little man knows my Dad has a GameCube, so he brought along his latest obsession - Lego Star Wars. My Dad is, essentially, a big little kid so they had a good time with it. Sadly I think they bonded more over gameplay today than they ever have through other means. Typical.

    Do your perscription goggles look any different than non-perscription goggles to passers by?

    talk rocks. It is almost as nerdy as typing over two connected modems. Ahhh, memories…
