Unlike most people, we talk on the phone every day and use skype on a semi-regular basis so I feel like I "see" my mom all the time. I hadn't been home since last Christmas and my sister, Jenna, and I haven't been home at the same time for 2 years. Jenna and I talked about going home more often than once a year so we're already thinking about a trip home at some point in spring time.
One of my mom's cousins found these photos of my dad with Jenna and me as babies and sent them to her. We put them together to get the whole picture.
I also got to see Jacki! I haven't seen her for over a year either so it was great to catch up, see her new apartment, and meet her new cat- who has no name and is really, really mean... but I still liked her.
