I hope that helps.
I am not doing very well. I am not able to manage everything effectively.
Taffy is here for a while, my college girlfriend and she seems to think
I am treating her badly. I guess I have not been treating her or Tony
like I am thankful that they are helping me fix up MY boat. I just felt
we were all doing it together and it was a partnership. She might leave
soon. I think she is annoyed with everything I try and do to make things
better. Sometimes people just see you in a negative light. She just needs
time to realize that I am not trying to make her life unhappy.
I am not managing well. I have a laborer and he works well with me or
alone but then I have to give tasks to Tony and Taffy and make sure they
can get around the town without any language skills. I was teaching Taffy
for a while. She is quick with languages but now it is hard to teach her
anything because what ever I say she thinks I am being a jerk. What can
I do? Tony is not so fast but he really enjoys the tonal aspect. He was
saying how growing up playing the trumpet makes him more aware of the
musical aspect of the language. It is entertaining to watch how they both
deal with Thailand. I am trying to make it easier for them but I am not
doing too well with Taffy.
I think we will be leaving around the 17th of Dec but I don't know at
all. I got the engine running well and we are going to drive around the
marina a bit, very slowly, to test things out and then I will run the
engine for a few hours to see how it does. We are just about ready to
paint the boom and the deck. We are making the boat more livable. We are
putting up a good set of curtains. It is starting to look nice. Like something
I would like to live on.
But I am tired and worn out and stressed. I need to figure out how to
reduce my stress level. ASAP! Maybe play more and like you said, go back
over the list of what we have accomplished so far.
Happy Thanksgiving mom,
