Happy Birthday Tom!

I have to admit that I am the WORST WIFE EVER. Today is Tom's birthday and I am flying to Los Angeles to go attend a Disney press trip that includes going to the D23Expo and the 60th Anniversary celebration at Disneyland. See, I am a sucky wife.

Luckily, Tom is not the Worst Husband Ever and supports me when I get invited on trips like this. He did not hesitate is being happy for me and does not mind that I am not there for his birthday.

We actually rarely celebrate our birthdays. Usually it's a nice dinner and, usually, never on the day of our birthday. I still don;t think I got my birthday dinner this year. Tom says I did but I am not sure.

This year has been a bit of a strain but we got through all the illness nonsense and me starting a new job. Luckily, Tom is one year older! And I thin we are happy about that. Of course, I will take him out to a great dinner or cook him a great low fat, low salt dinner when I get back. In the meantime, I am partying in Los Angeles and he is all alone with Joss at home.

Happy Birthday to the Best Husband Ever! Of course, he is my only husband ever.

Lake Lure, NC vacay!

We had such a great time on Lake Lure. We had visited a few years ago and loved it. This year we wanted a relaxing, non-flying trip so we decided to rent a lake house. Now renting a house still means I have to cook and stuff but it's all good since I like cooking. We were also able to take Joss with us and that was huge because we did not want to leave him alone for a week. He is still a kitty and likes us around.

So we packed all our stuff and headed out on July 4th. The house we rented was small but comfortable. It had 2 bedrooms and one bath. There were several stairs down to the lake. I hated the stairs but the lake is amazing. I love lakes because there are no sharks. Plus, there are no waves and the water is fresh. There is nothing like a lake.

Basically all we did was get up and eat. Then we went down to the lake and got into our floats and hang out on the lake all day. It was super fun and refreshing. We would then come back to the house and eat and then go fishing at dusk. One day some friends came up and we hung out with them. Then one two occasions we rented a pontoon boat for a few hours and we went boating and fishing. '

Lake Lure is so beautiful and peaceful. It is wonderful there. I know if we had money, we would have a house there. It is our dream to one day retire on a lake. It's a lofty dream but you never know. Right now, we will settle for renting a lake house but, hey, that's good too!!

These are pictures of the house and the views from the house. More pictures tomorrow!
