Hey Google + peeps!! I've been away for a spell. How's everyone doing?  Hope is good, for the most part. :)

We're back!!
I've been absent from Google+ for a spell. We've had family visiting, on & off over the past 3 months. We've also traveled to visit family. 

We drove with our 2 rescues, to Charlotte, NC to share  Easter & Passover festivities with my 83 year old parents. We are interfaith - my husband's Jewish and, well, I'm not. It was the first time my parents experienced a Seder. It was a hit! My mom couldn't get over how much time my husband and I spent chopping, slicing, dicing,  mashing, sautéing and baking.  
"Passover's more work than Thanksgiving dinner!" Mom exclaimed to her only sister on the phone. "They've been working their asses off for 2 days."
We did work our (ahem) asses off and had a lovely visit with my parents. Mom kicked mine & my husband's 'asses' playing checkers on her iPad. My husband now realizes where I got my competitive spirit - from my Irish Mama. 
The biggest hit of the trip: the pups. Lucy (on the left) spent half her time on Dad's lap, while Mischa spent the bulk of her time seated at Mom's feet. 
These pups were spoiled rotten by their human grandparents. Isn't that how it should be?
I called my parents to tell them we got home safely and thanked them for having us. 
Mom: The house is too quiet now.
Me: I imagine it is.
Mom: We really miss those pups.
Me: (long, awkward silence)
Mom: Of, course we miss you & Matt too, it's just that the dogs… well, they're just so darn cute.
Me: Gee, thanks, Ma.
Mom: Oh, you know what I mean!
Me: Yeah, I do. We miss you too, Ma. (lump in throat)

Goodbyes are hard, for all of us. Mom's eyes fill up and the hugs are long and tight.  I never know when, or if, I'll see my parents again. It's a painful fact of life. The drive was tiring and long. Preparing a big, sit-down dinner (never mind the clean-up), was tiring, but the visit was wonderful. My parents expressed their appreciation, ad nauseam. 
We had ham and a variety of salads for Easter Dinner. Mom baked a cake - a birthday cake for me - and sang the Birthday song. It should be noted that my Birthday is January 1st. Better late than never. Mom's cake was deeply appreciated. I may be gluten-free, but I ate 2 honking slices of my homemade, chocolate birthday cake.  
If you have aging parents, make time for them. Make amends with them and forgive their errors. All parents make them, including me. 
I was blessed to have another opportunity to visit with my parents..
Spend time with your parents. And, even if you're gluten-free, eat the damn cake and enjoy it!  You never know if you'll have another opportunity.  You just never know.

My publisher has told me, time and time again, 'if you impact one person with your written works, you can facilitate change." I'd like to think  of it like the ripple effect. Help one, help many. 

First you make them laugh, then you make them cry. Then you give them hope. My debut book is entertaining & funny. I also address serious topics such as drunk driving, date rape, bullying (in school & in the workplace). So, if you please, give 
Sarcasmic: Confessions of an Overthinker a chance to make an impact in yours, or someone you love's life. Available in paperback & for kindle via Amazon.com 
Thank you. xo

Laugh & the whole world laughs with you. Or, at you. 
I am completely comfortable making an ass of myself. I wasn't always. 
Amy's right. It is empowering and oh so liberating. So, go ahead and look silly. Act silly. Be silly. They're going to laugh at you no matter what you do. If can't beat 'em, join 'em.

Hey kids: Guess who Grandpa's bringing to dinner?
Whether you're loving  or cringing over all the #caitlynjenner  news, you're going to fall in love with my family's cringe-worthy, laugh-out-loud tranny tale. According to readers, it was the 'funniest' out of all the fun chapters in my debut book. Laugh along with me. Feel my pain. Bring plenty of wine because Grandpa's about to fall out of the closet….

Throwback to 2013 - one of many trips to Sarasota before we transplanted ourselves here, permanently. 
I so love this pic of us.  It evokes feelings of joy and reminds me that weathering storms was worth the rewards. I love this man. I love the life we've built.  LIfe is beautiful today. <3   #tbthursday

Throwback to yesterday….
I was strolling down a pier when I spied him, in all his dark, graceful glory. He was beautiful beyond words, and… he was headed my way.

Talk about timing! Right place, right time & a smart phone in hand.

Did JUNO a blizzard means an opportunity to cozy up with a snarky, fun book? (Sorry - my publisher made me do it). 
 I may be loving our new life in Florida, but I am, most assuredly, freaking out for my family and friends in the northeast.  I'm with you guys, literally. I even stocked up on almond milk, coffee & toilet paper. 
Old habits die hard. 
Seriously, stay safe, bundle up, make sage choices, lift with your legs & take time to make a snowman & drink hot coca. xoxo  ~ <3
