Saturday our family was invited to go sailing on a friend's boat. My dad has a speed boat, but I've never been sailing. I was excited, but a little nervous because I get car sick/sea sick pretty easily. I was hoping that I would be alright though. our friend's have 4 boys and their oldest is G's age and their youngest, is KK's age.
The boat had seats in the back, which the adults sat on and chatted, then there was a cabin where KK and his friend hung out. KK would come up the ladder and want to hang out for a little bit or he would want to give me a kiss. At one time he came up and told me he needed to use the bathroom so he had to pee off the side of the boat, which he thought was just too cool.
Occasionally KK would ask me to come down into the cabin with him...and I did once for about 2 minutes. That's all I could stand, anymore time and I would have gotten REALLY sick. I think KK got a little sad when I couldn't stay down there longer but I think he got over it.
We had a lot of fun and we were glad for the opportunity to hang out as a family with good friends. It's nice to be able to get together and have an adult conversation once in a while.
It was a quiet drive home which made the boys fall asleep, although G said he never fell asleep...but I would argue otherwise.
When we got home I wasn't feeling well, I had a headache and felt like I was still on the boat. I told Mr H. I was going to lay down...bad idea. Once I laid down and closed my eyes and the sea-sick wavy feeling overcame me very strongly. I couldn't lay down and I couldn't stand up...either way I would still feel like I was going to be sea sick. This lasted until the next day and we got off the boat at 1pm! It was really hard to fall asleep because I felt I was just rocking and waving still. But I'm still glad we went, we had fun.
