We have a Queen's Cup Sailboat race in town today so we will be looking for big sailboats all day today while enjoying this nice weather here in Michigan. I am looking forward to spending the day with the hubby and two girls, hope you all have a great day as well!

The Death of Michael Jackson

I have been desperately trying all night last night and half the day today to put into words exactly how I feel about the tragic death of Michael Jackson. As I watched the story unfold yesterday, I sat in complete shock, it had only been a few hours since the passing of Farrah Fawcett, and yet here in front of me was the possibility if yet another star (icon) in a battle for life. Let me say that I have been a fan of Michael Jackson since my cousin gave me the Off The Wall record back when I was a kid and I have followed him ever since through the height of his career and through the tough and sometimes bizarre parts of his life. When he was pronounced dead at around 5:26 pm last evening, I felt my heart sink and I literally felt sick, I still do. Those people out there that have posted rude and crude message on Facebook and other message boards today have absolutely no idea what this man truly meant to the world through his music and his life. Sure he made mistakes, don't we all? He was a true artist, a magician of music and dance, and did some wonderful things for charities and organizations all around. I remember Michael Jackson on this day for his music, I have been playing it and listening to it for most of the morning. I have watched CNN, MSNBC, and FOX News all morning, I just can't turn away. It is a sad day for us as fans and more than that his beautiful children, mother, father and 8 brothers and sisters. Let's remember Michael Jackson for what he truly was, a brilliant musician, a father, a son and a sibling that was truly loved around the world. He will be forever etched in history and beloved by many, me included. Rest in Peace Michael, may you not be in anymore pain and suffering, you will truly be missed by all.

Too Hot Today!

Oh my goodness, what a hot and sweltering day here in Michigan, I truly hate the heat! My husband thought it was a good idea to take the kids to the park in the 90 degree heat and sunshine. We stayed for maybe 10 minutes and then went for ice cream. Thank goodness tomorrow will be a little cooler and hopefully raining. I am so ready for fall, my favorite time of the year. Hopefully you all had a better day!

My Thoughts on Jon and Kate Divorce

It's funny nowadays how stories of other people tend to really affect some people, but after I watched last night's episode of Jon and Kate Plus Eight, I found myself quite bummed out. It's hard to believe after 10 years of marriage and 8 kids, they're going to give up. I would have hoped they would have went into counseling or ended the show, just stayed together amd worked things out. I am not a firm believer that you should stay together just for the kids, but in this case, I believe thatt they should have. We all don't really know what goes on in their lives outside the show and you can't always believe what you read in the tabloids or see on the entertainment shows, but just the pure pain in Kate's face told the whole story and I really felt for her. I do love the fact that they both mentioned that they are going to be there for their kids and put them first, I just secretly hoped they could do it together. Here's hoping they can work things out and at least be friends and work together for the sake of their kids!
