Pea Green is not a good color for me

Today I got some good news.  Our really awesome friends Terry and Valerie just bought up on their next boat.  They went from a 25 foot ski boat to a 32 foot cruiser.

I am really happy for them.

No. Really.

Okay, I am trying to be really happy for them.  See, they just bought the dream boat me and the hubs want.  A 320 SeaRay Cruiser with all the amenities.  Generator, heat, A/C, full galley, loaded deck.  And they went and got it this weekend.  Which means they have just extended their boating season to year around.

I am so green with envy I can taste the lime on my tongue. 

I know I need to look on the bright side.  For them going to the Marina is a two hour event because of where they live.  For me and the hubs we are there in seven minutes flat.  Plus, I would feel guilty for leaving the kids (cats) for the whole weekend.  Wouldn't I?
Yes, see, its much better that we don't have a cruiser because we would be gone from home way too much.  No phones, no computers, no nothing...oh wait, I am trying to convince myself that not having a bigger boat is a good thing. 

Okay, I am going to keep working on that one.  In the meantime I am off to buy some champagne.  We have to christen the boat with something after all.  Although, we don't break the bottle over the bow until after all of the champagne has been drunk.

No, you wouldn't feel guilty. And if you did, ehh, it'll pass:)

Of course not, 'cause why waste a perfectly good bottle of champagne?! LOL Finally someone with some sense! ;)

LOL! Have fun with the christening. And when you get yours, just toodle on up the East Coast so you can take me for a ride, okay? ;)

Candy: When your right, your right.

Elizabeth: You right it does only make sense to drink it.

Linda: It would probably take a week to get up your way via boat, and I can't think of a better way to spend a week, so count on it.

Thanks for stopping by ladies.
