Skype and other non-essentials

This week has been a little crazy…I flew to Atlanta last Sunday and went to a training all day Monday to then turn around and fly home Monday night.  Flying somewhere is awesome, and when I make a decision of where I’m going to live for the rest of my days…when I finally grow up and figure out who and what I’m going to be…I’m going to hopefully live somewhere closer to an airport (instead of the two or three hour drive – depending on what airport we fly from – it takes to currently fly somewhere).  It was a great trip, I learned a lot in my training and it was nice to bum around the city for an evening.  This weekend was full of hayrides and bonfires…it was a good weekend, with some awesome weather.

I got my car fixed and was able to pick it up this past Thursday night.  The deer slaying did a little more damage than they originally thought and the bumper support was all bent out of shape and the body shop I took it to was a little afraid that they wouldn’t get the new bumper put back on the car.  But they succeed and did a great job…my car is back to normal but I’m still a little jumpy while driving or riding in vehicles.  I draw up at movement at the sides of the road or when my roommate is driving and texting or talking on the phone and flying around curves or down the road…I’m a little jumpy.

My roof is getting fixed this week.  W00t!!  The shingles did something called delaminating (falling off) and then Ike the hurricane did land fall in Missouri and he blew a lot of the shingles off or up and around.  My dad did a temp fix, then the insurance guy came out and sent me a check to get the shingles fixed.  I will also get a new glass put in my back french door; they guy I hired to mow my lawn threw a rock into it while weed-eating.  I’ve had a fun and exciting end of October so far…I’m glad we’re in a new month.

Skype.  Skype is an awesome invention.  We got to spend about two hours talking/seeing Riley and Tara today thanks to the people that invented Skype.  I feel sorry for all the people that blazed the trails ahead of us and discovered the new world…prior to Internet.  I cannot imagine what it would be like if I had to wait on a letter to arrive from Ireland to hear news from my family.  It was awesome getting to see them all (first time since September)…we did see Riley the other night when I set mom’s computer up.  I’m going to Tara’s parent’s house tomorrow to set them up so they can use the program too.

That about covers it all for now…time to get some sleep and to take advantage of that extra hour that I will gain tonight while sleeping.
