Finally!

After months of working on this refinance, I got the checks today. I paid off my car and all the credit cards. They should all be processed by monday, at which point I will be getting the loan for my lonely boat that has been waiting for me. I paid off 28k worth of debt and now I'm going to drop 30k on this boat. Ok, so I'm a knuckle head, but this is what I've always wanted. Everyone wants some really expensive toy really bad from when they are a little kid and that feeling never goes away for many of us. For some, it is a pony/horse, others a porsche/corvette/etc, still others want something stranger like, say, a sex change. For me it was always the sailboat. I grew up near the ocean in southern Cali and spent a good deal of my formative years swimming/surfing/boogie-boarding/bodysurfing or just floating around in the ocean. I have a connection to it, and as cheesey and new age as that sounds, it's true. Now it's time to go back to the ocean and get some of my heart and soul back. living in Northern California, you don't really get much of a chance to be *in* the ocean, unless you are wearing a full wetsuit with hood, booties and gloves, but for me, surfing has always been immersing yourself in the water and feeling it on you. I think I've worn a wetsuit all of two or three times in my life. never needed it down there. then again, I was thinking about it and it's been 12 years since I last got on a board. I'd probably look like a goon at first, getting back on one. Sometimes I dream about though, and everything is just fine. Then again, I dream about being a ninja too...

Holy shit, speaking of dreams. But, I'd better make a new entry for that...
