Here’s what I got instead of a kitchen redo. And I’ve got to be honest on this one–Joe was right. This is so, so much better.
We had the perfect weekend weather for taking our maiden voyage, 80 degrees and sunny. And even though I had to get up at 5 a.m. (Joe was like a kid on Christmas morning), it was awesome.
It’s a really nice boat. It seats seven, has a bathroom and separate coolers for bait and lunch (all as essential as life jackets, in my book), and a radio. You can hook it up to your iPod so I’m already at work on my first cruise mix (lead track: SNL’s “I’m on a Boat”). Song suggestions welcome.
We’re pretty much going to be spending every decent weekend from here out aboard, so I doubt much will get nothing done around the house this summer. But it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make.
