Failure to Communicate

After two months of spotty communication, my husband bought a new computer and we are actually able to keep in touch. I get a webcam conference a few times a week now. I feel like I'm in an actual relationship again.
My car kept dying in intersections at random. The problem was that the computer couldn't communicate with the engine. It was expensive, but they're talking now.

I had been waiting two weeks for the 20 yards of Swish from Knit Picks that I needed to finish a project. It arrived and now David's Urban Necessity Gloves are done!

My role as a stepmother has gone from discreet conversations about tampons and boys to being in charge of everything, including discipline. Ever tried to talk to a 15 year old girl? Not easy. Communication seems to the the cause of and solution to every problem these days.

There are times when I feel alone on this planet, but life is getting better.

I'm so glad to here that you guys are able to talk more often now. I think the slowness of KP shipments is due to the fact that our packages have to go to Salt Lake City, Utah before they get to's crazy.

I'm *so* glad you two can talk regularly again - that's a HUGE help. I don't know how my folks did two tours separated, with just letters and a (very short) telephone call every sixty days.

And teenagers? You don't communicate with them. Not really. You just hope you steer them in the right direction, or they decide that it's what they actually wanted to do anyway. (Honestly, that any of them - US! - survive adolescence...!)
