It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Getting More Accomplished And A Visit.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Once you get in a habit it seems hard to break. No I don’t mean sleeping in. We were having breakfast by 8:00 again this morning but as soon as we’d finished eating we washed the dishes before going to the computers. Even then I headed to the bedroom to make the bed and get dressed before Kathy came in to dress and stage the bed before we both returned to the computers. Even then not too many of the regular morning bloggers had written so shortly after 9:00 our attention was being redirected to other parts of the apartment. 
We are still unaware if our apartment has been rented but as soon as it is Dan the building manager promised to let us know. So Kathy started sorting dishes from our kitchen cupboard. Some will be left until our last day in the apartment while others are now going into storage and others will be going into the trailer. Our dishes in the trailer are Melmac that we’ve had since our travel trailer days and you cannot use them in the microwave. Kathy plans to use our Corel brand dishes that are microwave safe for everyday use in the trailer. We have a setting for twelve so she won’t be bringing it all with us because there’s not enough space in those cupboards.

I started sorting and packing T-shirts into a plastic storage bin only keeping enough for a couple of weeks wear so that we could remove the second shelf from our bedroom closet. Once all the hardware was removed I help Kathy gather things from the linen closet to use for packing away other breakable items. By the time we sat down for lunch we had two more huge boxes and two more clear plastic containers that were ready to be stored. 

It was nearly 1:00 by the time we had the truck once again loaded and were on our way to Guardian Storage and our Climate Controlled Storage Unit. We’ve developed a routine when we go there that we first unload everything from the truck inside the building so we can work in comfort arranging things the way it will be easy for us to find afterwards. We resolved the issue of the padlock by replacing it with one from a set on the truck that has extra keys. When we locked up for the day we drove over to the trailer where Kathy switched out the Melmac for the dishes from home while I was busy putting things in the basement. When we finally left the storage yard our next stop was at Value Village where we donated not only the Melmac dishes but two other bags of STUFF that we no longer need.   

Instead of going straight home we drove over to our daughter Karen’s for a visit. When we arrived Greg, Kylla and Noah were also there. Sanford had been outside playing in the mud puddles so Karen was busy cleaning him while we visited with the others. Greg had just gotten home from work and was heading to a Super Bowl Party. Kylla was explaining her job to us but still has plans on returning to school. Noah’s plans have changed dramatically as he’s now training as an Electrical technician. 

We left around 4:30 and headed over to DQ where we each enjoyed one of their $6.00 value meals which included a sundae as a dessert for supper. It was fast and cheaper than cooking it at home. Now we are already making plans for what we’ll be doing tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

 Ask a silly question

If 4 out of 5 people suffer from diarrhea

does that mean that 1 out of 5 actually enjoys it?
