It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Bust Day and Needing Fuel.

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Both Kathy and I seemed to have some waking time throughout the night so naturally our bodies said it was time to sleep in. The problem with that was we had a lot of things that needed taking care of today. Since the first thing was Kathy needed to go for blood test and she couldn't eat until afterwards so we headed out the door without breakfast.
 I needed fuel for the truck but figured I'd wait until her blood test were done because normally it only takes about ten minutes. Not Today! Our medical providers OHIP now states the Doctors must fill in the paperwork for blood tests that used to be done by the labs. So after signing in and waiting for a while at the lab a new technician finally informed her of the change. Kathy then had to go to her doctor to have her fill in the paperwork. As usual her doctor was busy and thought Kathy had time on her hands. Kathy finally saw her going by the room she was in & told her we had to pick up our granddaughter at 11 and she had been there an hour already. Her doctor fills in the paperwork but then starts shooting the breeze with Kathy about just having become a grandmother for the first time yesterday. Back to the lab and five minutes later she was out the door.

A quick stop at Mickey D's we had each a coffee and sandwich to go. I still needed fuel for the truck. Crossed town and pulled into the school parking lot just as Kylla was coming out. We drop her off at home and head over to the grocery store. We haven't been to this store too often so we had some difficulty finding some of the things we needed. Once we were finished there we headed home to put things away since we had some frozen things that couldn't defrost.

After a light lunch we needed to find a drip coffee maker that would be practical for the trailer. I did tell you I needed fuel for the truck. We lucked out by going to Canadian Tire. We looked at what they had on the shelf and weren't too impressed. As we're leaving the store we see a sale flyer advertising a Hamilton Beach 10 drip coffee maker at 25% off. What made it special is it came with two Stainless cups and a Thermal Stainless Carafe. This means all the bouncing around it will take in the trailer we don't have to worry about it getting broken like we would if it had one with the glass carafe.

We drove across the street to another grocery store to pick up a case of pop and some coffee. Kathy at that point figured we could head back home until it was time to go to our son Kevin's for our weekly visit. At this point I had to explain to her that if we went home before going for fuel there was a good chance we wouldn't make it to get fuel. I never let it get this low but today was an exception.

We got fuel! Since we hadn't fueled since December 17th when we left town to visit and celebrate an early Christmas with our son Gary and his family it was time. Unfortunately we got hit with inflated fuel pricing at the pump. We can only hope those prices come down a touch for our future travels.

Tomorrow is Groundhog Day and the predicted weather forcast for this area is Partly Sunny. That sounds like another six weeks of winter to me. Actually it's 48 more days to Spring but who's counting.

It's about time.
