I haven't had too much to write about lately ... still working and planning!
Nirvana is still patiently waiting for a paint job in the boatyard, and she'll probably be waiting until the end of May before she gets some attention. The end of May .. that's when we figure our daughter will be settled into her house and Ken's schedule opens up a bit.
In the meantime, I've been gettin' antsy! I'm fine with waiting until the summer to get Nirvana painted and back in the marina, but after that I'm wanting to move forward .. full force! Maybe I'm going through a mid-life crisis, but I wanna get going. I'm not craving a fancy sports car or botox, but I have this strong sense of urgency.
A few of our friends have passed away, I know way too many people that have battled cancer, and know others that aren't able to travel for one reason or another. So if I'm lucky enough to keep my health, I have to hope that Ken is also lucky. If that isn't enough, I have to hope that our parents stay healthy for a while! I don't like the odds as I get older. Ken and I will be 50 years (young) next year, so even if we keep in good health and nothing tragic happens, we're past the half-way mark. Every year goes by faster than the last, and I remember celebrating my mom's 50th birthday .. it seems like it was just a few years ago. Damn, time flies.
Perhaps I should have named our site "3/4 Life Cruising"!
Hasta luego ... until then. Mid-Life Cruising!
