Well, here we sit right where we had planned but it isn't easy. I will be starting my new job Monday. I turned down the one that would have allowed me to move and live on board but I turned it down for an even better paying position that will allow me to stay at home and not move. Hubby will be starting his new job as well on Monday- but his will require he move 7 hours away and only be home 4-5 times a year. I do not want him to move, he's my best friend, my confidant, my rock, my everything- I am deeply saddened but we will do what we must to make our dream a reality. With these new postitions we should be able to save 50-60K a year towards our cruising kitty and boat purchase
. I am joining the local sailing club where we took our first class so I plan to learn and practice as much as possible. We went sailing last weekend with Beth and Randy- Gunkylump- and we both loved it!!!! Aaron has spoken to everyone we know about how wonderful it was and how he is looking forward to being on our own wonderful boat.
Tonight we are having a going away party for Aaron- it will be bitter sweet but should be a wonderful time. He will be staying in a hotel
for a couple of months while he finds an apartment. I went and got him a few things for the hotel
stay and will be looking for some cheap
furniture for his apartment- of course we already started paring down and sold all our extras in the yard sale
earlier this summer!
So for now we will chase the money
so we can eventually chase the waves.
