Road trip!

Yeah, so we're going on a road trip. It was not planned, nor should it have been since we both - while brainstorming one night on the deck, eating hot fudge sundaes - agreed that just jumping up one day and saying "YEAH IT'S ON" was a better idea. At least that was always more fun when I was younger. It's kinda neat that she's at an age where everything is an adventure, so God only knows where we'll end up, although our destination is, at this point, Pensacola.

Why Pensacola? It's a short drive, lots of sandy beaches and WOOHOO MILITARY MEN. Kidding. Seaside is WAY out of budget, and Panama City sucks. So Pensacola wins. Again, none of it is really planned beyond our hotel room (and even that might be canceled if I find something better...lol), so it should be fun. Particularly with /my/ spawn.

She did laundry last night, took out the trash, cleaned out the dishwasher and was nice to me, so who am I to deny her such things? Besides...it's part of her birthday present. She did some of my laundry, too, and I'm afraid she dried some things on high heat. My pajamas will now be five inches too short, but I won't tell her because she was so proud of her laundry prowess. lol :>

The beauty of the trip is that *I* didn't know we were going until really late yesterday. I /need/ to get away, out of here, away from my phones and all this crap that's going on with family (and friends) and just relax. I have a couple of books, plus my audio book (thanks to lefthand_path, but have I packed yet? NOOOOOOOO.

I may call my cousin about her working at the satan store just so she'll get the job and not feel the sting of rejection at such a young age. I've been on someone's payroll since I was FOURTEEN. CAN I STOP NOW? so it won't hurt her to have a little summer job.

My hair is MUCHO LESBIAN short right now. I told Jim to cut it all, and so that's what he did. Wow. My neck loves me right now. I won't keep it this way, and will let it all grow out long this time. But for now, I'm wondering just what in the HELL I was thinking. :> I'm all Jodie Foster The Brave One up in here, but don't have to worry about fooling with it. Yay! Actually, I look like Steven Spielberg's wife in the movie "Just Cause". Ughhhhhhh.

Yeah, I'm dancing all around the reality of what's going on right now, and suppose I'm not really going to journal any of it. I need to get packed anyway.

We'll both be bringing our respective laptops, so I might journal our crazy adventure while we're out. Or maybe not, since the spawn has made "a list of things we should do while on this trip", like "eat a crayon" and "find a crab, cook it and eat it" and psychotic things like that. She's so easily amused. O.o

And if you're one of those crazy asses, someone's staying at my house so don't even think about it.

Thank you!! I'm sure we will :D
Jun. 24th, 2008 09:47 am (UTC)
How fun for you! I'm glad that you're able to get away after all! If you're wondering about hotels, you might want to check out Tripadvisor.com, and see what people have rated in that area...

Have a great time - you'll be missed!
Jun. 24th, 2008 09:49 am (UTC)
I've called around, and actually know the area so...what I'm looking for is to save $$$. We're going to canvas some of the little villas there to see if we can get a better deal (and hopefully, right on the beach). Good times.

We're both bringing our computers! lol :) You won't miss me, since I'll probably update. God knows we both needed this trip. Both of us have been stressed (for different reasons) and salt air does a body good :> We'll have a good time for you, too :D

hope you two have a good time. watch out for jellyfish.

The spawn is mortified of jelly fish. We're here and safe :D Even found our hotel with no problem, but are gonna seek accomodations elsewhere :>
Jun. 24th, 2008 05:22 pm (UTC)
glad you made it there, but what's wrong with your hotel? there aren't bullet holes in the wall, are there? (i checked in--and checked out--of a hotel room with that exact problem on a trip down to florida many a moon ago)
Jun. 25th, 2008 07:33 pm (UTC)
It's too far from the beach, and I hated the view. So we moved :>
Jun. 25th, 2008 07:39 pm (UTC)
hope you got a better room.
Jun. 25th, 2008 10:12 pm (UTC)
Pool side, first floor, lots of cute boys (spawn's age...lol).
Jun. 25th, 2008 10:31 pm (UTC)

Jun. 26th, 2008 12:02 am (UTC)
Ever since the spawn downloaded "Simon Says" (music for VH1's Fabulous Life of) I don't feel guilty for sticking songs in other people's heads. lol I STILL have that "duh duh duh DUH" going around in circles up there...
Jun. 24th, 2008 04:08 pm (UTC)

Have fun! :D
Jun. 24th, 2008 04:58 pm (UTC)
We're here and having fun.
Jun. 24th, 2008 04:39 pm (UTC)

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
