My Entry For the Kia Sorento Ultimate Road Trip Sweepstakes

OK, If you could take your family on a road trip anywhere, where would you go and why?

This is such an easy question to answer because it is something I've always dreamed of doing. In a heartbeat (if the opportunity arose) we would all take 3 months off from everyday life, load up the car and head out on the best road trip EVER. In the front seat would be an atlas to set us in the right direction and a good book on "the must see places in the USA". Each day would start with a final destination in mind (let's say Yellowstone National Park) and then while driving there we would stop anywhere along the way that seemed interesting. No definite plans, just seeing the USA in all its glory. So many people seem to vacation abroad or head to one of the Disney Theme Parks, but me, I'd rather see how our neighbors live and the wonders of our country, how cool would that be!

Life Again Changes

Well, my last post mentioned about the new life changes I'd be going through having my mother-in-law move in with us. Sadly, she passed away two days after I wrote that.
I don't think it has truly set in yet. We have had so many relatives die over the last 11 years that I honestly think I've become use to death. Is that a horrible thing to say? It sounds a bit uncaring but it's not meant to. After thinking it over and tossing it around I feel it must be a coping mechanism my brain and heart use so I don't break down totally. We've lost 15 family members in 11 years. That's insane.
I know a lot of them were older and no one lives forever but my brother-in-law was only 60, our cousins were 53 and 57. It's got to stop soon or there will be none of us left (Just a thought).

I'm done discussing it. It's time to decorate for Christmas. I'm going to put little sparkling white lights all throughout the house. It's going to turn our world into a winter wonderland. All bright and new. Yep, it's time to brighten things up.
Ready, set, glow!
