For those of you wondering, I've been away.
Well, first, I've been sick with the flu. So sick, that I actually left work early last Tuesday AND called out sick on Wednesday. Never ever does that happen in my life. I've been sent home because of being sick but I never voluntarily leave or call out sick. I was so sick that Mike asked if I wanted to cancel our Anniversary trip which was scheduled for Thursday through Sunday. I told him that if all I did was lie in bed in our room to recover, I would still go. I am glad I went.
If you ever need a place to go for an exceptionally romantic weekend/couple of days/week, you MUST go to Moose Meadow Lodge
. We flew into Burlington, Vermont and drove to the lodge. As we turned into the driveway, both of us gasped at the sight of the place. The pictures on the website do it no justice. Mike's first words were, "It's a winter wonderland." I was stunned. And that was nothing compared to the hospitality of the owner Greg. He owns and runs it with his husband Willie. But Willie was away on vacation/business/family, so we only got to see pictures of him. I won't say anymore because you really must experience it to believe it. Okay, I'll just say that no matter what Mike and I did, we both always looked forward to coming back and just crashing into the comfort that Greg and Willie have created. It truly was a wonderful way to spend our anniversary. Even if I was still coughing and sickly.
AND for those of you looking to have a Civil Union (which is recognized by the State of Vermont), this is the place. Greg is a Justice of the Peace and can preside over your ceremony. Plus they have hosted many at the Lodge
. I also got word from a local that Greg is just so moving and amazing that he is in great demand for both Civil Unions and "breeder" weddings. Who knows, maybe someday, Mike and I... hmmmmmm.
Anyway, enough said about the Lodge
. I'm back. I am going back to work tomorrow morning, early. I need to hit the gym. I've had no appetite for any food until tonight. I missed my cat. It's good to be home. Later.
