I’ve always wanted to be on a sailboat. Not sail on a sailboat, just be on one. Full disclaimer, I have an unhealthy fear of fish so anything having to do with water must be done with extreme caution. But when my friend Megan mentioned her sister was in town and I decided to swallow my fear and jump at the opportunity to cross No. 143 off my Life’s List.
Megan’s sister lives on a sailboat with her husband and her two kids and most of June they were anchored on the Potomac river. Because they are away from friends and family, and people in general, getting a night away is a rare occurrence. Enter Megan– babysitter extraordinaire. B, Little B and I spent the evening with her while she watched her niece and nephew.
I have to admit, after my initial excitement, I did have a moment of panic. What if my baby falls off? I’m not a strong swimmer. What are you thinking? But I quickly got over it… a beer helped.
This song may or may not have been playing on a loop in my head.
Overall I had so much fun. This experience certainly taught me that “being a mom” doesn’t have to deter me from crossing more adventurous things off my life’s list.
Anyone crossing anything off their life’s list? Anyone writing one… I’d love to read it.
