Many moons ago, in the dark ages, when my hubby was at work and I needed to ask him a question or just tell him “I love you”, or complain about what
his our children were doing, I’d have to call him at work. And hope that he’d answer his cell phone (which he does about 20% of the time). If it was really important, I’d have to call the actual work number and have him paged, which always makes me feel like a nagging wife. Then one day Bobby suggested we start using Instant Messenger, and, TA-DA! Now we can pretty much talk to each other via IM whenever we want to or need to! It’s great to feel connected all day and not have to try to get ahold of each other via phone. I also use IM to talk to Emily while she’s at work. It’s very fun! I love to help her slack off and not get her work done! Ha ha, just kidding, Emily’s boss! IM is actually used at Emily’s work kind of like inter-office mail, and it’s fun that she and I get to chat during the day when we need to about blog stuff, the terrible wonderful things our kids have been up to, etc.
So, Instant Messenger woks for me! For more brilliance, check out Rocks in My Dryer.
