After spending an entire weekend away from home, helping out my folks while Mom recovers from her hip replacement surgery, I'm so glad the cat is able to express just how much he missed me...by curling up in my middle girl's lap. #catsofinstagram #missmemuch #nope
Currently, enjoying Springter in Jersey! #catsofinstagram #springter
How about if we grab something at the diner before the cosmetology school's open house? I asked her. A few minutes later, I hung up the phone after speaking with a client and she thrust an agenda in my face. #youngestoffourproblems #wahmlife #shegetsitfrommelisa
Our youngest gifted the family at Christmas with a scrapbook dedicated to the memory of our Doofus-dawg (a.k.a. Doofy, a.k.a. Dumbass). It's been 6 months, and man how we still miss you...real hard...buddy! #tbt #doofusdawgforever #dogsoﬁnstagram #iwantmydogback
I love this picture of our oldest, Holly. She has the best laugh -- it starts from somewhere deep inside and bubbles up into an uproariously loud string of belly-laughs that echo throughout the house -- something totally unexpected from someone so quiet and reserved. It's so hard to be an introvert, because the world can be a very noisy place, and not many people appreciate the inner battles she fights (every day) just to be heard. BUT NOT TODAY: Holly has been promoted to a new position at work, a job she applied for AND got...here's the best part...because she worked her ass off AND has had to learn how to be her own best advocate -- that, my friends, is real hard -- so good luck on your first day (with your own office and an outside telephone line and everything) and good job, Holly! (Photo credit: @melissagracias does good work, too!)
Me to middle child: Any chance of our getting in a selfie? .......
Nearly pulled a muscle in my neck trying to take this, until I remembered his arms are waaaaaaay longer than mine. Behold, the elusive selfie-hating 18yo!
Beach hair, 🤷♀️ #springter
Cleaning up the folks' house before leaving to visit Mom at the rehab center and while Dad is at dialysis, and I have GOT to get me one of these! #EasilyAmused #ButYouCanCallMeMizzClean #MopGoals
