I have a love/hate relastionship with texting. I love it because its a surefire way of getting my two oldest sons' attention and I loathe it because I'm not very good at it.

I want to spell things correctly and use punctuation. I don't understand what most of the abbreviations mean or why my 19-year-old ends every text with LOL. Like, "We r out of food lol" or "Do u have chapstick lol" or "Can I come by and do laundry lol"

Both boys r on, I mean are on txt (text!) only plans, so I'm trying to make peace with it. U knw wht i mean?

How often do you send or receive text messages?
