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.

Things Sure Have a Way of Changing!

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

As I’ve written before Kathy was born with a congenital heart defect that affects her breathing and what her body can tolerate compared to people born with a normal heart. Most of the time she enjoys a fairly normal life style and many of you probably wouldn’t realize she even has any problem. She had very thorough testing back in 2003 where the problem was first discovered. Since then her symptoms have been controlled with medication and she has learned to listen to her body at least most of the time. This requires her to stop and rest on occasion.

In the last two years she has been having more than her normal shortness of breath. On occasion she experiences a slight fluttering of her heart after some of her more strenuous activities. Eleven years have passed since she had a thorough testing so her Cardiologist (The one with the bad bedside manners) has decided to proceed with tests that will double check to see how well the blood is flowing to her heart. This is important because she could require additional help to keep it functioning so that she can continue leading a near normal life.

Today was the first of two days that she goes to the hospital as an outpatient for testing and evaluation. Today the tests were not as demanding as they’ll be tomorrow but the day was hectic because of going from one appointment to another. We will keep everyone posted in time what the doctors find and if there are any changes being made to Kathy’s lifestyle.

With our hearts set on the grilled fish fillets last night we didn’t even think to cook them any other way than on the Weber. So with that mindset that was what we did tonight and the fish went perfectly with the pasta sidedish and vegetables that Kathy cooked up. 
Kylla in her new car. She drove straight from the dealership to show us.
Just as we were sitting down at the computers this evening our granddaughter Kylla called saying she was heading over to show us her new to her car. Since she is attending nursing school she needs to have her own vehicle. Her dad Greg is a shrewd negotiator and bargained a better deal than she could have ever expected to get. Since she is also working she will be making her own payments that will make her more responsible for her own future. 
Kylla happy and proud of her new car. 
She insisted on taking us for a ride and ended up taking us to McDonalds for an ice cream treat. We got a chance to congratulate her on her very first car once we got back at the apartment. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Wife: Did you know that most accidents happen in the kitchen?

Husband: Yes I know, I've eaten most of them.


  1. Hope all the tests work out well! I can barely remember my first car, but I can see by her smile it is very exciting:)

  2. Nothing much more exciting than your first car.
    Hope the tests go well.

  3. Best wishes for Kathy and her test it's better to know what's going on but I have a big surprise
