Truth be told, I’m probably just about the least nautical person I know. I’ve been on a boat maybe a dozen times in my life, and let’s just say not all of those experiences have left me wanting more! I am thinking, in particular, of the time 3 or 4 summers ago when I took the ferry from Wisconsin to Michigan for a trip with Jorden’s family. We had two kids at the time and I was looking forward to a fun boat ride with them….
…but as the trip got underway, it quickly became clear that the ride would be anything BUT fun! The movement of the boat made me feel seriously ill….to the point where I was laying down and hoping to fall asleep just to escape it! To the point where I was completely unable to take care of my kids. To the point where I made Jorden stop as soon as we got off the boat so that I could buy a pregnancy test….because I felt THAT sick. (I totally wasn’t pregnant.)
