Connected in the wrong way

My smart hubby pointed out yesterday that we spend so much time texting and BBM-ing that once we actually talk on the phone, everything has already been said (or typed). I'm a person who wants to hear his voice on the other end of the phone as much as possible. I'll call him during breaks at work and he'll do the same. But we end up sitting on the phone with nothing to say. Are texts making us too connected in the wrong way?

So we're attempting to cut back. There were many chances last night at work that I could have texted him something that was going on or that I was thinking, but I held back. We had so much to chat about last night once we skyped! I got to tell him all about work and everything that was going on, and he hadn't already heard the play-by-play via BBM. I was able to show him some boots that a co-worker was giving away and that I'm going to MAKE fit because I adore them so much (who cares if they are an 8 and I'm a 6 1/2... that's what thick socks and inserts are for). 

And speaking of skype, that's something we don't do enough of. I'm not really sure why but it's probably due to the face that the Internet in most hotels is sub par. Yes, we were disconnected three times last night but were always able to connect again. I'm making the commitment to skype as much as possible. We both are not fans of talking on the phone (which makes long-distance pretty difficult) but I can get on board with skype when I can see his handsome face (feel free to gag...).
