Staying in touch


I love the progress we've made in communication. When I first moved to France, the fax was the BIG THING. You could send a letter and it arrived Instantly! Everyone had to have a fax!

Well, we've made progress since then. Now I keep in touch with e-mail, Skype, IMS, yahoo chat, and there are films to send, notes, little 'hello's' that you couldn't send before. Notes with pictures. I just got pictures from my cousin's wedding. Everyone can stay in touch.

And that's part of the reason I have my blog. Being the only Berroyer/Betrus over here in France, it's nice to keep in touch with family. So I use my blog as a sort of stepping stone. My family can pop over and see what I'm up to - what the weather is like, and how my Christmas tree looks!

I am such a nosy person, I love looking at other people's houses and furnishings and stuff. I think we should have "open house" week where all bloggers post pics of their houses or apts on their blogs, including shots room by room. But then again I am on strong drugs right now, having just had my wisdom tooth pulled yesteday, WITHOUT being put to sleep. I don't recommend it.

Anyway, just wanted to say I love your tree. It's so pretty!

I agree. I'm a terrible pen pal with paper or email, but I keep trying to get my family to set up livejournals so we can keep in touch better. Because I hate the phone.

Yes, it's wonderful!
Like December, I have a permanently broken arm when it comes to regular letters.
