road trippin' is an adventure,

I keep telling myself. We're fixin' to head on out to the state of Washington tonight. Nothing but me, mom, keeds, ipods, and one infinity driving into the sunset. Sounds like a rocking good time, right? Right?? I'm not gonna lie. Road trips are not my most favorite of activities, but in the end we will be in the presence of family and the long hours of staring at gravel and listening to "are we there yet??" too many times to count will all be worth it. 
Here we come Washington. I know you'll be so happy to see us! 


ps: Yesterday, a musical icon passed away. He was 50. I was in the parking lot of Sally's apartment yesterday afternoon when the text from Meghan came in informing me of his death. Like when Princess Di died, I will always remember where I was when I heard the news. Though some of you might have disliked this gifted musician, I have always had a love for his talent. Always will. 
The way he makes me feel, is ain't nobody's business. 
Farewell, Mr. Jackson. May your music live on for generations.

"The Way You Make Me Feel" is my all-time FAVORITE MJ song:) Hope you guys survive the trek and have fun doing it! :)

just commented on tice's blog, but it was really for you. hope you are surviving your drive and listen to lots of MJ on the way. i actually found out through the internet from returning home last night. i thought i was living under a rock since i hadn't heard it before, but it turns out the news was just very fresh still.

If only road trips were as short as the song. :(
