Can't you see me? I'm the one here behind the monitor still blogging, believe it or not! Well, okay, mostly reading blogs, but I did start a lovely post two days ago that I had to save for later. I wanted to show off pictures from our little vacation, but realized that I should get permission from my sister-in-law before plastering her darling children's faces all over the internet!
