I’m happy and very relieved to report that there were no additional problems that arose while we were away. I turned the water off before we left just incase there were any other corroded clamps just waiting to bust a move. However, the biggest problem I had to deal with when I got back home was that I was flying solo…. Matt wasn’t getting home for another few days. Normally, I’d be OK with this, but this past incident made me feel totally helpless and I was on edge until he came home. Nothing like an impromptu leak – ie: something that could potentially sink your house – to make you question what the hell you’re doing living on a damn boat anyway. But, we’ve accepted the fact that while we’ve been fortunate enough to able to experience this whole new way of life, we’re dealing with a whole new set of challenges that come along with it as well.
So how did I pass the time until Matt got home? By nesting of course! I finally changed out our curtains to something that matched our cushions. While the teal cushions are definitely walking on death row, I figured a pair of $40 curtains would be money well spent to pull the room together and make it feel even more like us.
