45 days and counting…

So my roommates listed the house for sale on Thursday, and they’ve already received an offer over their asking price.  That translates to me needing to get a move on and find myself a boat!

The RV idea is totally out, and I’ll either have to go straight to boat life…which may be difficult to find a deal in San Diego this time of year; or stay at my boyfriends apartment in the interim.   Or I can find an apartment myself, which will most likely be over priced and have a minimum rental term of 6 months to a year.

Here I go again!  I found two boats on craigslist today that could be potential homes, I’ll share them below.

The more expensive one(bottom) is my first preference, but the other one seems ok too.  I’ve sent an email out asking if the slip is transferable…first thing’s first!

Hello from the Rolando Street Fair!

I’m a terrible blogger…

I haven’t had anything intersting going on in the world of sailing or potential sailing.  I have an interview tomorrow for a second job…maybe this one will work and I can save up for the boat!

Today I have a little space at a local street fair.  My first observation: this is a long damn day.   Holy moly, I didn’t realize what I was getting into!  We started setting up at 8/8:30 am.  This goes until 6pm…then we have to wait to get our cars pulled up to our space.   And I had about  5 hours sleep.   

My second observation:  I need more printed material!  Signs, photos of the products being used, clothing on a person…all sorts of things.  I tend wait until the last minute for everything, and today was no exception.  I could also use a couple of shelves or tables.   

Yet another observation: I should have brought a cooler with snacks and water.  Holy moly, I’m a thirsty reason.  And I also love snacks.

Here’s a photo of my little space

Well, that’s the view from my chair.  I’m exhausted, haha.  

I haven’t sold a thing.   Oh well, I’ll chalk it up to a learning experience.
