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.

Lots of Researching and Searching.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Last night after we dropped Tyler at home and visited with Karen for a short while we came home with a renewed sense of locating a Christmas Gift on that special list we mentioned yesterday. Karen had given us an idea of what sites to go to for better results. Back at the apartment we found a few sites and took turns looking at approximately 1200 pictures looking for that perfect gift. By 1:00 in the morning we were a couple of walking Zombies as we headed off to bed. 

Even though we had given up over an hour and a half of our sleep on our own accord we were both awake within minutes after 8:00 this morning. As soon as breakfast was finished we were back on the computers finally locating what we had been looking for. That’s when our jaws hit the floor because the cost would nearly pay for a set of tires on our truck. 

After lunch we tried driving to a couple of shops in Windsor that we thought would carry this type of product and hopefully at a lower price. Unfortunately when the market crashed six years ago most of the shops that specialized in this went out of business and the ones that survived stopped carrying that product. We finally found one of those businesses that survived but they only remain open four hours a day for five days a week and by the time we got there they were already closed. We’ll be making a special trip back tomorrow morning. Back at the apartment we once again found another site with the product but this time it would only cost as much as a single tire would for the truck. 

Kathy made a twice baked sweet potato and a salad to go with the Lemon Chicken Kabobs that I grilled on the Weber for supper. We’ll probably be shutting the lights off early tonight to make up for last night’s lack of sleep. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

The No. 2 cause of work absences lasting three days or longer is stress and anxiety.

  1. That must be a pretty special gift.

  2. Tire prices are getting ridiculous. We put four new ones on our MH in March and it was $2600. Hope they last a long time!
