We had a good weekend on the boat. It was cold and windy on Saturday. We went for a walk but the wind chill didn't make for a long walk. My blood must have gotten thinner because I don't particularly like being on the water or walking on the beach in cold weather.
So we stayed inside and played Scrabble. I have gotten hooked on the word game. Who knew that words like zed, za, qi, eoui were actually used? I did well in vocabulary tests but some of the words played are ones I never knew existed. But, it is easy to get hooked on this game regardless.
On Sunday morning, it was 42 F inside the boat. I turned on the gas heater and within a half hour, we were up to about 58 F. We got things stowed and then got underway to catch the max flood tide out of the anchorage.
We then cruised upriver, past the old Navy base. It is an industrial area now with the old destroyers resting (and rusting) alongside merchant vessels in dry dock. We pulled into one of the marinas and visited with our sailing friend who said that her partner acted as if nothing had happened the morning he was so drunk.
She said that she has so many resentments towards him and cannot trust him. That seems to be the fall out from living with alcoholism. We stay way past anger until it gives way to deep seated resentments. And if a person lives with resentments long enough, the ability to trust and even love others withers and dies. I am glad to not be in that situation now. For today, I feel happy and not harboring a seething resentment. This is One of the miracles of recovery for sure.
I will get around to reading and commenting this week. Too much Scrabble, naps, and socializing have kept me busy over the weekend.
