Dealing with a MIL and my mother who are both really worried.

Figured there is no better place than here to seek some semblance of solace

 

 

P.S. I'mjust insanely proud of him.

 

 

invite them over for movie night,  watch poseiden adventure and then perfect storm. and then top off iwth Life of PI..  

 

Ah, I don't think that would work out so well!

I did a Florida to Spain delivery when I had a 3 month old son and 2 year old son. I said no when I was asked to go and my wonderful wife told me I would regret it forever if I did not accept and the boys would not even remember I had gone for a month. One of the best and most exhausting experiences of my life. It even helped me settle down more in the future because it cured some wanderlust. Good on you Nauti for being supportive, it will pay dividends in the future.

His first response when he's offered sailing work is "I'll aske Nauti and let you know".  He knows, and I know, the answer will be yes (there are a couple of people that I've blacklisted, but he doesn't want to work with them either).

 

At the end of the day, he's living his (and my) dreams, and I knew his passion going into this.  It would be wrong of me to deny him these opportunities. He supports me, and giving him my blessing to do this is the very least I can do.


In Topic: Sailing Anarchists Affected by Cancer

My favourite Aunt was diagnosed with terminal cancer the end of September. 

 

I've managed to coordinate for everyone to visit after Christmas.  It will be the first time in 15 years my mother, uncles and aunts have all been together. 

 

I have no idea what to expect (I know she is tolerating chemo well, with minimal side effects). 

 

I'm a bit scared, and a bit nervous.  Looking forward to taking care of the caregiver (my uncle).   Not quite prepared for saying goodbye (she's been given 5-11 months from her diagnosis, so I expect we will lose her by the summer, outside a miracle. 

 

What a fucking awful disease.

Lucky Gumby... wish I could do it.

 

Hi to both of you...

 

Hi to you!  We'll be in your neck of the woods for Christmas!

Sort of late in the season to be doing trannies no?

RORC Transat.  Boat was in Lunenburg, NS before the start.  Staying in the islands for the winter.

 

Pretty shitty trip over with lots of lows on the way.
