This week is going to be a big adjustment for us. We've stayed on the boat for several days at a time, but we've never lived on a boat. And we've certainly never had all of our stuff with us. I've got to get this situation under control!
My wish for this week is to at least start making a dent in some of these goals:
1. Get organized.
This is a big one, and it's going to take awhile to really figure out what works for us. Everything that we brought with us has been divided up into plastic boxes. The trick is to figure out how to situate them so that we don't feel like we are constantly living in our own personal game of tetris.
2. Get up close and personal with the kitchen.
Our galley (kitchen) is teeny tiny and so far I've been able to avoid doing much cooking. But I'm not going to be able to get away with that much longer. I've got to start cooking, start figuring out and getting comfortable with using limited counter space, limited appliances, and a maneuvering whole new dish washing scenario.
3. Get rid of my personal bubble.
Or shrink it, at least. Did you know that the average married couple only spends about two and a half hours a day together? Not all of that time is spent actually interacting with each other, either. Riley and I are going to be spending all of our time together, and in a little boat to boot. As much as we love each other... it's going to be a big adjustment. Especially with all of that whistling.
Okay, that sounds like a lot. I should probably add in "do something fun and non boat related." But I'm worried that might be setting the bar a little high for the first week. If I could figure out how to make all of the above stuff fun in the process, that would really be something, though. Wish us luck!
Do you make weekly goals? What are some of yours for this week?
