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.

More Spreadsheet Adjustments and Hot Soccer Game.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Kathy had a somewhat restless night last night because every time she rolled over she sensed my absence in bed. No matter what I tried I just could not stay asleep. At best I had two hours of sleep total.

Once we’d finished breakfast shortly before 9:00 we sat at the computers and got caught up on our morning reading. The Weather Network had again posted a high heat and storm warning for our area but instead of feeling like 113 F (45 C) like yesterday it would only feel like 109 F (43 C) today. Those few degrees is a big difference working outside so it was like a green light for me to spend the day working on Kathy’s spreadsheet project.

Today I busied myself transferring data that Kathy had already put on the old programs and then separating them in the appropriate categories. I had that nearly three quarters completed when I came across two more categories that had to be created. Showing Kathy the problem she reluctantly agreed so by supper time I’d gotten all the old files corrected. Now I just have to remodify the Template File so that I can produce the future files with ease.

With it being so hot outside again we left early and went to A&W where we used a coupon and saved nearly 40 percent off our bill. Again I picked up Kathy as close to the door as possible and dropped her off as close as possible to protect her from the heat.

Along with the high heat warning our area was also under a severe storm warning. Due the weather report the organizer of Matthew’s soccer league once again rented the indoor soccer field at the old Windsor Ice Palace. Even though most of the players would have preferred to play outside they appreciated the cooler environment they had to play in. With the field size being smaller than the outdoor field the game was much quicker with a lot more action and goals.

At the halftime break while most of the other players were off resting our grandson Matthew was busy practicing with a few other players. When the game resumed Matthew not only assisted on a couple of goals but also managed to score one unassisted. In the end Matthew’s team won by a single goal giving them the first place position for this year. Next week is another tournament so we’ll have to wait and see where they are playing.

Other than a few rain drops on our windshield on our way to the game the storms seem to have gone around us. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

  1. Matthew has a great work ethic. He sounds like he is self-motivated. That will get him big places when he is older. Congratulations.
