What I've been up to.... since I haven't been here. Again.

I went to BlogHer to become a better blogger and it seems that I've become the worst by not blogging at all. I've made strides to be better, y'all. I've even made a schedule.Yes. Y'all are on my Google Calendar.I've also been horribly, horribly sick with a sinus infection/chest cold of doom. You can forgive me, right?

And then there was the time that CNN directly referenced a Duchess' lady-bits....

Well kids, it happened. The royal baby was born today and we can all now descend from where we have, collectively, spent the last week perched, trying to see inside the Duchess’ hoo-ha in order to watch the blessed event.
