Webcam Wonders


DH decided to experiment with the webcam in a Cyber Cafe tonight (or this morning, his time). I really need to get me one of these!

Seeing his face made me SOOO happy! You can tell he just got back from PT.

I am really tired right now but that perked me up. DH reminded me I have to pamper myself because he is not here to do it. He suggested a little bowl of Cherry Garcia iced cream so I think I’m going to get a bid bowl out right now.

This morning, I sent my first “CARE” packages off–really it was a bunch DH’s equipment he could not fit in his bags. Tomorrow I can start sending the fun ones. Some friends have given me great ideas, which I’ll share later.

Last night I also ordered him some equipment to be sent directly. For those who are trying to pack for deployment right now, you should get a high-powered, hand-held, rechargable spotlight, and a slingshot as well. The slingshot is for discouraging those who get too close to the convoys. Apparently now the soldiers have to fill out tons of paperwork everytime they discharge a weapon. So, the slingshots streamline the process while still affording some protection.

I also set up a wish list for him on Amazon.com so he could get videos, books, and small electronics (a USB mini-mouse) from friends and family members who want to send him things.

Well…off to wrap Christmas presents so I can send them off tomorrow to New York. The cats are “helping.”

    Aren’t webcams the best?! I loved when dh was at a computer with one. With him being in the Infantry and on a FOB with, well, next to nothing, it didn’t happen very often. Just seeing his face once would get me through months.

    Definately invest in one. Everytime dh was able to get on the computer, he could see Cameron and I even though we didn’t get to see him. He said that being able to see us got him through the year. It’ll be the best investment you can make for him.

    Hang in there. You will get through this. Remember, I was just there not too long ago so if you need to chat (read: whine) don’t hesitate.
