The Search For Bright Waters

Great news all around!

- Christine

I quit smoking 3 weeks and 3 days ago!!! Things have been a litttle tense around Bright Eyes so we havent ventured out sailing and therefore havent written, but I'm all better now. However!!!!... Joey just got laid off! Yay! So now he has tons of time to get all those pesky boat projects done before we leave. Including, some engine brickabrack, changing a halyard, davits, and solar panels. And were done! Or more likely there is other stuff to do I just cannot be bothered with remembering what it is right now.

There is also this thing called money, but we are working on that. We are supposed to close on our house by the 15th! Thats next week! Woot! We are scheduled to fly down the 22-26th to fix it up to rent it, if any handy people live in FL and want to come help! Then we have the more important job of renting it out. Once it's rented my worrisome mind can calm down and rest assured that we ARE leaving Jan one.

Oh yeah, Joey hired an engine surveyor after our disastrous trip in August, and he can post the details later.

Congrats on both. Hope the house closing goes well. Renting an investment property out is a pain, but the checks are nice. Let me know if you need any assistance. I may be around Deale on Sunday. Eric

Congratulations on not smoking! Actually, you have exactly 3 weeks on my husband! He hasn't smoked for 3 days, and it's not easy. I really hope both of you are successful with it. Good luck with the closing! Don't let your agent, lender, or anybody else know Joey got laid off!
