Skype me, baby!!
This afternoon, at the request of several family and friends, I finally downloaded Skype. I'm already hooked after making a free hour long video call to my sister in Maine. I'm not sure why I waited so long. I'm sure there's no one out there who has not at least heard of this service, but I must say, it's an awesome deal. You can call anyone with a Skype account for free (anywhere in the world!!!) and you can call landline or cell phones for just 1.2 cents a minute. Can't beat those prices!! So to those out there who haven't signed up...time to get on board. My husband refers to it as "star trek" calling:). I'm thinking it will be a life saver when the kids go to college.
Yesterday we took the kids to a movie at the dollar theatre. Prince of Persia. 3 on a 5 scale. We also ate at KFC with a coupon deal. While I was waiting in line for my food, this older gentleman behind me ordered 40 wings. I dug around in my pocket and found a coupon for him. He was pleased as punch, I tell you!! And it felt good to be helping my fellow man.
Tonight our Korean student flies back. She has been with us for 1 1/2 years already and is a senior this year. Again, something I would recommend for everyone. It's been a good experience all around.
Sunday night we have a church picnic and Monday night we are going to a pizza party dinner that we won in the the church auction...thanks Kline family, looking forward to that. Tuesday: School starts. Oh my. Enjoying these last days...
