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.

Looking at Changes.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Kathy and I both seemed to have a restless night last night but for Kathy it was much worse. No we didn’t have any weird calls in the middle of the night but at 8:38 this morning we received another wrong number call which definitely woke Kathy. (For years we didn’t have any of those calls and now we seem to be making up for it?) Kathy had just told me about her lousy night as we’re sitting down at the dining room table when I spotted our pill daucette. We had been watching the news when we had our supper and neither of us had taken our evening medications with our meal. Now it will take days before Kathy’s meds will take the pain from her shoulders. 

With a heavy cloud cover and light rain falling after breakfast we spent the morning reading and working at the computers. Kathy was doing research for things to do on our trip south this winter while I was reviewing one of the pages on the blog and trying to remember how to make changes to it. It’s hard to believe that it’s nearly four years since I created it. 

After lunch we worked together researching a different phone carrier as well as the local cable company. When we first moved into our apartment we got into a contract with Bell that bundled our television, phone, internet and cell phones together and were shown it would reduce our costs. Unfortunately that was a three year contract and they lied as our costs have nearly doubled since then. Armed with the information we found online today we’ll be making some inquisitive calls tomorrow before we make any changes. 

Every year we discourage our children from giving us personal gifts at Christmas because we probably already have one or have already gotten rid of one. What we encourage them to give us is gift cards for the movies or any of the many restaurants around. We don’t use them all at once but spread them out over the coming year. Tonight we used one of those gift cards and went out to the Sandbar Bar and Grill for our supper. Kathy had already looked online at their daily special and found out they were serving Rib-eye steak. We sat inside the Air Conditioned dining room and savored every bite of our meals cooked just the way we like them. It was Delicious! 

Tomorrow the temperature is supposed to be more comfortable so we might get more outdoor activities accomplished. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Office Jokes, Quotes, and Anecdotes

Co-worker: Today I'm celebrating five happy years here at J.C. Dithers & Co.!

Dagwood: Five years? It seems to me you've been here more like twenty-five years.

Co-worker: Twenty-eight, to be exact. Strung together, it rounds off to about five happy ones.

Dagwood (toasting with water cooler cup): Well, here's to you and another five!

  1. I hope those meds kick in really fast and Kathy gets relief sooner than later.
