Last weekend we had boat a good time, and a grim reminder. We were visiting with my cousin, Angie and her boys, Austin and Anthony (Anthony wouldn’t sit still for pictures… lol). To find a nice place where the kids could play and grownups could talk, she found a quaint little park; it had a playground,covered picnic tables, bathrooms and a water fountain, everything visiting families could want. The problem is, apparently, they also had some thieves. My cousin had hidden her purse under a seat, but it wasn’t hidden enough. Someone smashed out the passenger window and stolen it. In addition to that, the same thing happened to another family visiting at the park, too. We got to kind of visit with her father, (my uncle), who is also a police officer, and an on duty police officer as he took reports and gathered info. We enjoyed the day till that happened, but got the reminder that we might have left Philadelphia, and gun shots on a regular basis, but we’re still needing to stay on guard for other crimes in the area.
In addition, this past week has really let us know how pressed for time we really are. As we recently found out that our darling Skip and Ginny, (the lovely couple that sold us the boat), are moving sooner then they expected, we are having to move faster then we expected. This urgent chaos even lead us to look into how to get rid of the boat incase we wouldn’t be able to pull it off.
Well, we’re still working on it, but it looks like this weekend, will be the calm before the storm. Tuesday, we’re going to be trying to do what feels like a million things at once. we’ll need to try to get the boat legally in our name, get a SeaTow membership, and get the boat towed to it’s (and our) new home. There may even be more that I’m just not remembering… but alas, with that being alot, I don’t know what else we’ll even be able to fit in. (On double checking, we might have to see if we can do all of that over Tuesday and Wednesday, as a SeaTow membership takes 24hrs to activate…)
At this point, I’m just praying that we get through the next week. I know (if we make it through) things we start getting back to a more normal pace. We’ll have more reasonable costs, we’ll be at least somewhat settled, and we can start focusing on working on the boat, and getting bills and such for next month worked out.
