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.

Laughter, Chores and More!

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

Even though Kathy and I seem to be getting some sleep the quality of it is not enough to sustain us for any extended periods of time. We were fortunate enough to not sleep late this morning as we had appointments. After watching the Weather Channel while we had our cereal and coffee for breakfast Kathy finished getting things ready for later today while I took my morning shower. 

We arrived at Fantastic Sam’s earlier than our scheduled appointment for our haircuts but since it was a slow day Jenna was still able to take us early. The advantage of the both of us getting our hair cut at the same place is that after five haircuts you get the sixth one free. So they stamp the card twice when we both go there and they charge me the same as my old retired barber did and gave me the same quality of haircut. 

Kathy wasn’t completely happy with the new wallet she got at Walmart yesterday so we stopped at the Devonshire Mall and went to Bentley’s. They sell luggage, purses and wallets and we did find one that better suited Kathy’s needs. We stopped at the food court and decided on a snack tray from Kentucky Fried Chicken for lunch. 

Back at the apartment Kathy went straight to work wrapping the Christmas Gifts that we had picked up last week since there’s only 146 days left before the big day. I was on the phone getting the new Turbo Hub connected. I called tech support and they soon had me hooked up but explained that the representative at the Bell outlet should have done this for me. 
Next I was calling another couple of internet providers as well as Bell seeing what the cost of a simple phone line and a DSL connection would cost us. The reason for that is if we run all our computers at home it uses up more than our plan on the Turbo Hub offers. After discussing the results with Kathy we decided to order a phone line and DSL from Bell. Even though it was seven dollars a month more than the lowest when the rep setting up the account and found out we were already Bell customers we got a discount that made it cheaper than the competitors. We’ll still be using the Turbo hub for the phone and for the internet when we are travelling in Canada.

After grilling a couple of hamburgers for supper on the Weber Q we did the dishes before heading out for our Wednesday night visit with Kevin and Melissa. We had our usual enjoyable visit where we talked of what is happening with the grandchildren and life in general. Of course Melissa kept us rolling in stitches nearly the whole time we were there.

Tomorrow the weather should improve so after a few chores we plan on being out and about. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
