It's been forever since I've been here. I've missed everyone. :)
First, the reason I've been away is life has just been so busy. Mostly with a little one who had constant ear infections. We now have tubes and life is getting so much better! I have caught up on my house work, and projects in my life that needed tending, and am ready to get back to life. :) I now can sneak some time in while little one plays. She can play on her own for periods of time, and I actually like to encourage this. So here I am.
Life has been interesting, and the Duke has been slow getting back into his groove. You know, sometimes it just takes one thing, and that was one day when I sat down to have supper, and couldn't believe how starving I was. I then said aloud that I couldn't remember if I had eaten yet that day. I quickly did recall I had a bowl of Mini-Wheats for breakfast, but the Duke was less than impressed. So now when he calls on his breaks, he checks to see what I've eaten, which is now a rule, along with what I've done around the house for the day. Spanking is still a bit off right now, especially since my parents are staying with us at the moment. But I feel his leadership growing again, and feel I'll be feeling my butt a bit more in the near future! His observations and attention have been very welcome, and I'm enjoying watching him grow into his role again. He's also smiling more, and I love that. :)
So I'm looking forward to the future. More time to visit here. More time to be with the Duke, and enjoy life. :) More time to have fun. :) I was catching up on past posts that I had taken down, I realize I'm down to less than fifty to go through, once those are up, I'll feel like I've caught up here too. I have been processing some things on submission that I'm eager to share in the near future.
