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.

Busy Exciting Day Making Progress.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After all the fresh air we were both exposed to yesterday I was quite surprised when I couldn’t sleep last night. That meant that we had to sleep in later this morning to make up for it. As soon as we finished breakfast Kathy headed to the computer while I immediately started sorting laundry. With this being a long weekend I knew that getting downstairs as early as possible was key to getting this completed in a timely fashion. I was surprised there was nobody downstairs in the laundry room when I arrived. The moment I started the last washer with our clothes people were coming in with piles of clothes to wash. I made certain not to leave the machines unattended and as quick as I emptied the machines people were putting their own clothes in to wash.

Kathy had finished vacuuming the apartment by the time I got back upstairs. Between the time I started the dryers and finished folding the dried clothes I managed to get my online reading in. Even though I made certain to be back downstairs before any of our dryers had finished their cycle and by the time I finished folding the clothes I noticed nobody else was there cleaning their clothes. Minutes after walking back in the apartment Kathy was serving a piping hot lunch we both enjoyed.
He found something more interesting than the game to watch.
For the past few years we have not been home at this time of year which meant we didn’t see our grandson Tyler play as much hockey. Last year his team came away winning gold in their league division. This year they were faced with new players coming up from the younger division as well as a rookie goalie with no experience whatsoever. So it was no surprise when they lost out to the gold and silver but they still had a chance for the bronze. With us not going south this year we were at the New Belle River Arena at 4:15 this afternoon to watch Tyler’s team play for the bronze in his division.

When the game started it would be scoreless until halfway through the first period when the opposing team scored. In the second period Tyler scored from the corner by deflecting the puck off the goalies stick. Two minutes later Tyler shot the puck between the defenseman’s and goalie’s legs for his second goal. By the end of the third period the score was tied 3 to 3 and because this was their final game for the season there had to be a sudden-death shoot-out. The final score was 5 to 4 with Ethan, Tyler’s best friend and teammate scoring the winning goal for their team. Next year Tyler, Ethan and a few other players from their team will be moving up to the next division.

It was nearly 6:00 by the time we left the arena and we had some errands to run. First we stopped at the Dollar Store to pick up a couple of small clear bins to put our toiletries in for the apartment because someone bought the Bathroom Shelf from our online ad. By that time both our heads were starting to spin from hunger so using a coupon we ate supper at Taco Bell. From there we drove to Metro grocery store to get a few things we need to see us through the weekend.
