Our whole trip was fantastic. Although we do have time together at home every day Tom is a very busy man. To go away and just concentrate on each other is heaven for me. You all may be tired of hearing it but I have to keep saying it. I love Tom so much! To wake up in the mornings with Tom looking at me, to have him reach over and touch my face. Some mornings we would make love without saying a word. Other times we would cuddle and talk on and on.
Each morning we were alone Tom would bring me breakfast in bed and sometimes feed me. I sorry I know how spoiled that make me sound but Tom seems to enjoy treating me this way and what kind of wife would I be to spoil his fun. We went sight seeing during the day and dined in the very best restaurants in the evening. In between we did everything you can imagine! And that did include many fun and erotic spankings!!
But the gifts! My wonderful gifts! One of my very favorite gifts was a ring. It is beautiful! Tom designed it and had it made for me and I just love it!! He also gave me some beautiful lingerie. It surely does look lovely on the floor! One of my most fun gifts was a beautiful box with 4 matching silk scarves. They were very pretty but I asked him why he had gotten all the same color. As he took one and gently tied it around my wrist he said “Sometimes this is the only way I can keep you exactly where I want you”. He didn’t have to worry about me trying to escape that day. I was perfectly content to say exactly where I was!
But did I get what I was asking for and he kept saying no? Well, yes and no. My dream gift was a laptop. I would like to be able to take you all with me to other parts of my house and possible even off with me sometimes but Tom has NO desire for me to have more access to the computer. So … I did not get one for my birthday. But Tom got one for himself! I get to borrow it when the lord and master says I may! Oh I am just fussing! He is letting me use it until I make him mad about something.
I assumed I had all my birthday gifts when several days later as we were getting ready to go out Tom asked me casually “How would you feel about moving?” I felt like he had hit me with a sledge hammer! “WHAT?” I was not happy! “No I do not want to move,” I began “we’ve moved enough for several live times. I love where we live! I love my houses! I love our church! Have you taken a job? You never said a word! Tom so help me if you have taken a job without telling me I’m going to wear you out!”
How I have to stop saying things like that. I am always scared Tom is going to hurt himself laughing! So I was standing there, hands on my hips, loaded for bear and he was laughing at me! I nearly bopped him one as he came over and scooped my off my feet and sat me on his lap. He said “Stop Cassie, you’re scaring me! I bought Richard’s house.” I stopped sputtering and stared at him. “You bought the house on the river?! My house that I always wanted!! You are not serious!” It seems he was! This is the house we borrowed when our friends were here this summer – when Sue and I had our little boat excursion. We have borrowed the house often from our friend and I love the place. The house is fine for 2 people but will also be able to handle guest. At this moment the remodeling has already begun. Tom is having the 2 bedrooms at one end of the house turned into a master suite. I get to redecorate any way I want to!!
The yard is beautiful too. There are old trees with Spanish moss that blows lazily in the breeze. There is ever a small ‘beach’ area for wading or swimming. And the boat comes with the house!! Richard and his wife have bought a place near there children and grandchildren. There son has a boat so they sold this one to Tom. I am so excited I am about to pop! I grew up on this river and the time I spent near it and on it are my happiest childhood memories.
Right now we are not planning to move there full time but I have a feeling that we might when we get it fixed up the way we want it. I do love our house but I love this one too and as Tom and I spend this next year working on it we might just decide to live there year round. We’ll see, and it is only about 35 minutes from our church so that’s not a problem either.
Tom did one more thing for me. Over the next few days as we talked about the house I asked him if I could take the lap top there. He sighed and said “Cassie you really are addicted to that computer aren’t you?” You know it is strange. Neither Tom nor I have ever been jealous of other people during our marriage. Through all our trials and tribulations that has just never been an issue. But in a way he is jealous of all of you. Not individually but this blogging thing and the people I have met here do take much of my thought and time. Tom has never, ever competed with anyone or anything for my attention until maybe now. And of course he doesn’t have to now, I love you all but I will drop the computer like a hot potato if I can spend time with Tom. Yet he knows how much I enjoy being on here.
So he just nodded at me and said “Yes I already have the internet hooked up for you. I knew you would want to talk to your friends”. Do you see how pampered I am. Even though he does not completely approve of all my time on line he puts up with it because he knows I love it so.
So that is what I got for my birthday and anniversary this year. And what did I give Tom? Let me assure you he got exactly what he wanted!
