Last night went so much more smoothly in
terms of sleeping. We did some bobbing as the wind died entirely but at
When we get to LA, I have reorganize the
shipís provisions. It seems everything I really need is in hard to get
places and everything I donít need is in easy accessible places. I read
all the books and articles but this is very subjective. The best thing I did
was to prepare food before we left. We made a meatloaf, pasta,
Mac&Cheese and a loaf of P&Jís. This really was helpful in feeding
Jonah while seasick and for us to nibble on something without a lot of work.
I will definitely do this more extensively for our next offshore passage.
Everything is so much harder to do on a moving boat even when you do get
your sea legs, I am usually tired or busy with Jonah. The microwave was an
excellent addition to our galley despite the amount of energy it sucks. We
will have to be more careful with its use on longer passages.
Jonah asked for lunch the other day and
he said ď But Mom I donít want P&J, Mac&Cheese, yogurt or an
apple.Ē Ok I get the hint Ė more variety. I have a bunch of stuff hidden
away that I bring out to spice things up. Last night he got ice cream!
This is the longest passage I have been
on. Its not as boring as I thought although night watches can get fairly
tedious. I guess we are getting into the rhythm of it. I certainly am not
reading as much as I had hoped but I was too sick before and now I am just
sort of relaxing and spending time with Jonah and Jordan.
Jordan and I were a bit snippy over the
last couple of days and I think the sleep issues were to blame. I feel in a
much better mood and I know he will too once he wakes up. I think
End of the day: Long day. Still have
spinnaker problems which is great in light winds Ė NOT. Jonah made a mask
from construction paper and feathers (with Momís assistance) and he just
loved it. He kept looking at himself in the mirror.
Tip of the Day: DO NOT smell socks that you have been wearing for 3 days to see if they smell. Believe me they do.
