Since our plans for an overnighter were crushed by my job's social and travel requirements, we're out for a little day sail. While the winds were light and variable this morning, we've had 8-10 kts this afternoon. The real treat has been grey whales! Nice day for gawking and hanging out with the kiddos.

I ended up sobbing like a baby last night. Yep, it's true. I'm ok now, but last night the realization that I'm about 3 months away from being away from my family for 8 months, coupled with my weekend with them being reduced to 1 single day, got the best of me. Their little faces change so much when I'm gone for even just a week--I can't imagine how drastically different they'll look when I get back after 8 months. Frank, as always, has assured me that I'll get through it and that they will too, but somehow I don't have much faith in myself! Between now and then I'm hardly here, too, and I just feel like I'm going to slowly slip away from them. I hate it. I want it to be over.
