Anyway - this is my baby, LUCKY. I adopted her from the Humane Society in April, and she's been spoiled because I've been home with her all day since I got her. When I go back to work she will have a rude awakening. She loves to play fetch with the tennis ball and would play all day long if I had the energy for it. It was hard leaving her for 10 days for my Lake Powell trip, but luckily everything went well and she was still alive and healthy when I got back, and my house was still in tact!
I just returned from 9 glorious days on a houseboat on Lake Powell. There were 10 adults and 17 children - and it was a blast. I think my brother mostly wanted me to come because his wife's brother, Matt, was coming and is single also. My brother is trying to marry us off.
Here I am wakeboarding, and I'll tell you what, thank heavens the wakeboard has boots because tankinis and wipeouts don't mesh well! I feel pretty good about my progress on the wakeboard - by the end of the trip I was able to go in and out of wake, which I've never been able to do before.
So this is the houseboat - it is amazing. 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, A/C, a great kitchen with a microwave, gas range, and 2 refridgerators. And it has a 42" flat screen TV for watching DVD's or satellite TV. The men were happy to be able to watch Sports Center each night after the kids went to bed.
Most of the kids and Matt and I slept on the top and were much cooler than those inside since we turned the A/C off at night. Anyway - this is a vacation I could see myself taking every year! I guess I better start making some gooooood money then!
The moral of this story: life is good, even when you're unemployed!!!!!!
