Monday I fly to Seattle to meet my new boat, Capt. and Crew! I am so excited! I can't wait to get up there and see a new part of the country I have never seen before! Hopefully I can get to Mt. St. Helens on a day off or at least do a little wine tasting at the many wineries in the Seattle area. I am kind of relieved that the boat is in the yard for the next month and a half because that will give me time to get to know everyone and the boat before we have guests aboard. It is a private yacht so we wont be doing any charters which I haven't decided if that's good or bad. I think it will be good for me. I have worked on a ton of boats but this will be my first long term gig on a mega yacht. Like I said I was temp stew on one last year in Savannah for a month or so but that boat was in the yard to so I never really got to see what it was like having the boat on the move and people to serve. All I know is I better get my ironing arm in shape...
In other news, I am only trying to take one suitcase. Yeah. One. It's going to be nearly impossible. I am taking ONE pair of boots which I will probably wear on the plane because they take up lots of space in my bag, also to scare my new crew. I may even show up wearing my cowboy hat. :) They are gonna be like, "Oh shit who is this redneck on the dock?" nah... No cowboy hat. I have to bring one pair of cute heels to wear out if I ever go out. Then a couple pair of pants, shorts, a couple of shirts and my personal stuff. I will mostly be wearing uniforms so I guess I don't really need to bring much. P.J.'s. "Modest pajamas." My capt. said. She sounds really cool! I have never seen a female capt. of a megayacht and I can't wait to learn a lot from her.
Well, I'm sitting here on my LoveSac watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. It's a family tradition, since I won't be here yet again for Thanksgiving and Christmas I have to watch it as much as possible right now. I love it.
Check Y'all later!
I have been doing a whole lot of nothing since I got home to Texas and I am loving it. I take naps, play on my computer, look up travel guides for Seattle, L.A. and Cabo San Lucas, hang out with my parents, and help mom with dinner. It's the best vacation ever! Today mom and I will meet up with Dee Dee and we are going shopping!!!! Now, normally I hate shopping, but I really do need some essentials since I have been living on an island for a year. Things like, warmer shirts than a tee shirt. Some pants. You know, stuff other than bathing suits and board shorts. I did go "shopping" in my old closet and surprisingly I found a bunch of jeans that fit me and my old boots! I am only taking one pair of boots, it's a hard decision. I gotta go! Bye!
