I have, for the past many moons, been either a little down or a LOT busy.  I feel I should explain, especially to my CM friends, as I took an unannounced hiatus from my writing and photography.  What have you been doing all this time you ask?  Well, if I wasn't travelling, I was babysitting.  I was also fighting with my vehicles and any other rainy day emergency that happens even when it doesn't rain (and every single day your other half is away!) 

I have watched the Royal Grandbabies overnight, up until very recently.  My oldest Princess usually gets to stay up a little later, because, well, because she is older.  HA!  Actually, if truth be known, it's because if I put her to bed the same time as the Young Prince and Younger Princess, she will simply KEEP THEM AWAKE ALL NIGHT LONG!  

Here is a small sample of how we spend some of our time while we we wait for the other two to fall asleep.  She rules my heart!  She says, "Mimi, take picture" and I say "Hold that Smile!" ...

And the Oldest Little Princess is a royal doll baby. Keep the stories and pictures coming. You have no idea how much I've truly missed them.

Well, I am just seeing this.   And how cute!  How fun~  You look so pretty.  And she's certainly a beautiful little princess.  Yep~ I know you are missed.  And it's hard to just come to Cafemom for a few quick moments.  If you're like me, it pulls you around in all directions, here, and there, and before you know it , an hour has passed by, and you think "I just wanted to check my inbox"  but I commented on this picture really quick, then I just had to say "get well" to so-in-so, and then I voted on a showdown, and then I decided while I was here I might as well, check into my favorite group, and when I did that, I ended up posting a couple comments.  Then I had some chatter!  So I answered some chatter...
Then someone left a really long message on a POST I did.... (LOL)

And I just had to go to her chatterbox and say "Hi"!

Yeah, it's pretty hard to "just" check in for a few minutes. so, I understand when I don't hear from ya for a while.  You've been spending time well.
