Bad, Bad Blogger (Me)

Shame on me. I haven't blogged in days and do I have an excuse? No. Well, some of it might be from just feeling like I don't have anything worthwhile to say. Of course, there are those who beg to differ with me. Unfortunately, these people only exist in my head.

Ah, but let me discuss Husband. Every day he calls me for ten minutes. No more, no less. It's a free call on the morale phone and every soldier is allocated ten minutes. At nine minutes and thirty seconds in, a woman's pre-recorded voice comes on telling us we have 30 seconds left. I've come to hate that woman, whoever she is.

But imagine if you will, the following. The phone rings. I answer it. There's the inevitable delay before I hear the echo of my voice and then that of my husband's. By the time I hear the delay, I already know who it is. If he calls me in the morning (and lately his timing has been impeccable -- he calls just as I'm about to walk out the door for work) we talk about his day. If he calls me at 11pm (which is already the next morning for him) we talk about my day. So depending on the time of day he calls determines what we'll talk about. But without fail, just as soon as we start getting into a conversational flow, that annoying woman comes on. So yes, we talk everyday but we don't say much. Which leads to e-mail.

I cannot imagine how wives, girlfriends, mothers and others survived WW2 not hearing for weeks from their husbands, boyfriends, sons and others. I can mail a letter or a package to Husband and it will get there in 6 to 8 days but imagine back then, when it might take forever for a letter to travel overseas. Email is a wonderful thing. And in a way, I like email better than the phone calls because I can go back and re-read it several times and feel like he's near and not halfway around the world. It just seems more personal, I guess. I can get more indepth with email so he gets a better picture about my day, an experience, or what's happening with the family. And I must admit to a happy flutter my heart does when I see the email in the inbox that's from him.

So hail internet. Hail email. And if you'd like, give a shout to the Bad, Bad Blogger (me).
