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.

Cold Weather, Hockey and Spreadsheets.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

Kathy and I didn’t sleep like logs last night we slept like rocks. The building could have come down around us and neither of us would have woke up. It was after 8:00 by the time I got out of bed and immediately started getting things ready to make breakfast. Within minutes Kathy walked into the kitchen and took over cooking the French toast that I had planned on making. Sitting down to eat and watch the Weather Channel showed that we would have clear sunny skies but the Temperature would stay in the mid-20s for our high today.

We then went to do our morning reading before getting ourselves ready to go see Tyler play hockey at the Tecumseh Arena. Today they played against a team from the Belle River District who were definitely more skilled in the game who basically trounced Tyler’s team even with Tyler and a team mate getting each a goal. 

It was nearly 1:00 in the afternoon before Kathy and I stopped at A&W for lunch. Yes we used another coupon which helps keep our spending down. 

We showed up at Karen’s house by 2:00 so that we could go over the budget spreadsheet that she had asked me to make. I thought that I had put too many categories for what she had needed but in effect together we probably added another dozen plus rearranging the way some were listed. We also did a slight modification to the best of the three samples I’d made that will now definitely suit her needs in helping to see where their money is going. She then asked me to set the timers for the outdoor Christmas lights to start coming on tonight. 

Back at the apartment Kathy was really feeling tired so she sat back for a Snap (short nap) while I set my laptop up and went back to working on the spreadsheet for Karen. Before I knew it Kathy was telling me it was time for supper. While eating we watched the 6 o’clock News where they showed that London Ontario got slammed with as much as two feet of s@#w in some parts of the city. We have been fortunate that we have not had any of that white stuff yet but we have been having temps well below the norm for this time of year. 

As we finished supper Karen called to let me know the timer that got encased in a block of ice last year wasn’t working and she was also having trouble with a couple of her spheres that weren’t lighting. After posting this blog I’ll go back to finishing the spreadsheet for Karen. Hey I should be able to finish it by tomorrow night. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
