That did not go over as well as you might suspect. Now never mind we never had one last time... but we have to have it this time!? Go Figure.

Anyways, she needed to understand that she was taking up value space for my tools. I told her that. She suggested me trying to eat my tools. I realized that this discussion was not really a discussion with a variable outcome - but rather a declaration of intentions which did not require my approval or even liking it.

So, we have a bread maker on board. Not a small one either. We will be a floating manufacturer for Wonder Bread. But hey... life goes one and I get to sleep in the bed. That seemed to be her compromise.

HEHE!

FYI

I've made bread completely by hand. It is labor-intensive, long, hot, tiring, WORK.

A bread machine will probably cause more than a few fights when our time to cast off comes around.

Hi Everyone! Here is my update.

I am still in Texas, unfortunately (although I have some great news I will tell you below). My boat ship date is now the second week of December. Bunch of stuff beyond my control. Oh well. I am getting frustrated because the middle of the gulf is not a nice place to be in the middle of winter and I sure do not want to get caught out there in a Northern (been there, done that). But, like I said, it is beyond my control.

So, I am hanging around the forums this week or so trying to blow off some frustration. We closed on our house on the 11th of last week, so I am officially homeless. I was only planning on living across the street with my inlaws (I say I, I mean we, the whole family) for a few days, so we just threw some stuff in a suit case and sent the rest to the boat. Now here we are, stuck here for a few weeks, and scavenging for clothes. What is worse is that we permanently packed up almost all of our cold weather stuff, so we are washing things like jeans every couple of days!!! UGH!! So as you can imagine, I am very frustrated about living out of a suitcase and everything is a dissorganized mess.

On a positive note (1 of 2), this allows us to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with family. They were not expecting this (nor were we). So, we are all getting together for a great big shin-dig.... probably the last for a long while as we will be away. The timining also allows me to spend more time at the boat to do things to it which I might not have done otherwise.

So next week, after the holidays and some before, I will head to the boat and work on it some more. After the holidays, I will be there nearly fulltime. That would be the first week of December. I will also have her pulled, a new bottom job put on, start stripping her down for shipping, and somewhere around the end of that week or beginning of the next, ship her to mobile, AL. From there, we will re-rig her and sail her to either SW Florida or the Tortugas for Christmas.

NOW - THE VERY, VERY POSITIVE NOTE!!!

My son, Chase, got 6th place in UIL Public Reading! Now, that may not sound like a whole lot, but Chase has a speech impairment. He has been in speech most of his life (and still is and probably will be for a long time) trying to learn to speak correctly due to a mechanical defect he has had since he was a baby. SO, for any kid to make UIL is great. But for a kid with a speech impairment to place in UIL (1-6th place makes the team or whatever) that is really awesome! I am so proud of him. It really marks a great step forward in his progress. Only 2 kids in his school made it (4th grade), and he was one.

Pretty cool, huh???

I ditto that...very cool indeed.

Sorry to hear of the delays..there is a sliver lining there..as you have more time to reflect on some rushed things.

Thanks for the update CD ..its going to be fun hearing from you more and more now as your adventure takes off.

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

Great stuff, CD, and definitely kudos to Chase.. Time flies, as we all know and soon enough these delays will be forgotten.

I missed this part earlier. What method are you using to move your boat?

Ouch!!!

Hey CD, congrats on Chase's accomplishment. My SO has an 11 yo with similar issues and takes a lot of heat from his peers because of it.

Secondly, I too am learning a thing or two about patience where "waiting" on a boat is concerned. Of course I've not sold everything and my plans are not nearly as cool, but I can empathize somewhat.

Keep us posted and good luck,
