We are both so excited to be starting fresh. Troy's health is good, we're buying a new boat - life is good. Last year at this time we were just getting started on Troy's "medical journey" that took a year to complete. We received his diagnosis on February 2nd, after at least a month of tests and worry.
We want to say thanks for all of the prayers this year. We have really been humbled to realize how many friends we have and how everyone has been such a wonderful help this year.
We had a great time ringing in 2008 with our friends at the marina. Yesterday I cooked black eyed peas and cabbage for everyone. No one seems to agree on which represents luck and which represents money - so we made sure to have some of both!
We are hoping to close on the new boat within the next week. The survey went really well and we are feel like we are making a good move. We will have plenty to do before we can move aboard though. First we will haul her out and get a bottom job done and then a little work on the rigging before she's ready to go.
A long december and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last.
