I don't really know what I mean when I say life's too busy.  What the heck is that?  What am I thinking, my life is busy all the time, it never lets up. Unless I pull the covers over my head and hibernate, which I'm thinking about doing.

I'm probably feeling this way because the past couple weeks have been unusually busy for me with family. Normally I'm not as involved and active with family. Maybe that's what is triggering this feeling of busier than usual. Must be.  It's a good busy, though, I'm not complaining. Really.

One truism though, I've decided to pass the gauntlet of cook (not that I was ever a good one) in this Arizona neighborhood to someone younger in the family, like my daughters-in-law Elaine and Kellie, or my sons. I've found it's becoming more and more difficult for me to produce food at its best.  I just don't have it in me anymore, I'd rather be writing or shopping or watching movies. So, girls, I'm through. (I think I've said this before) I mean it this time. My poor granddaughter Crysta witnessed my frustration in the kitchen for her birthday pancake buffet on Saturday.  lol lol   I'm sure guest and friend Marianne wasn't the least bit surprised at my grumpiness while cooking, she's been watching it worsen at the last few gatherings.  So, that's it. I mean it, guys.

As for writing, I am having a ball!  My latest novel (WIP) is moving right along, hope to have it ready by October to be published in December in time for New Year's Eve.  All my novels have my favorite holiday in them - New Year's Eve.  And I managed to publish a collection of four more short stories this month - "Shoe's On The Other Foot" - love it when that happens - available on Kindle and as an eBook only.  But I'm thinking of writing a few more stories and republishing as a trade paper book too.

AND, as for my publishing company ... two new books coming out in April.  One by Charlie Moore and one by M. Trish Alden.  More about those later ... am working furiously with them, meeting deadlines.  Then there are three more books coming out by spring and summer's end.

Oh yes, in April am going to a 55 class reunion and will have a booksigning the next day locally - Bakersfield CA.  Check out my schedule on my website and hope to see you at one of the events - Russo's Book Store in Bakersfield - Sunday, April 28 - 2 to 4 p.m.

Oh gawd!  Life's too busy!
