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.

Chores and Good Time Visiting.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada. 

Surprisingly we both had another great night’s sleep but when the clock showed 8:00 this morning I thought we had to get our day started. We were expecting guests today and I presumed we were meeting them for lunch. It didn’t take Kathy long to correct that train of thought telling me it was for 5:00 which meant she could have slept later. That meant there was only one thing to do after eating breakfast and finishing our morning reading, we started our chores. 

At 8:30 The Weather Network showed the Humidex for McGregor was already 97 F (36 C) so my first chore was getting things watered outside before it got too hot. Kathy was gathering the towels to go with the rest of the laundry that I was about to start sorting before she dug out the vacuum for a house cleaning day. 

This turned out to be a very unusual day because normally the Park Laundry Room is packed until after lunch but when I got there at 10:30 there was only one other person taking their clothes from the dryers. By 11:45 I was back at the trailer after having transferred everything to the dryer. As soon as I walked in the trailer I could tell Kathy had been busy the entire time because even with the Air Conditioner working she was sweating profusely. After she cooled down a bit we worked together to dress up a couple of salads with shredded chicken and cherry tomatoes just the way we each liked it for lunch. 
I was back at the Park Laundry Room by 12:30 so I checked and found some of the clothes to be dry enough to fold before the end of the cycle. When the second dryer stopped and I checked the clothes they were still dripping wet. The heat had not turned on so the clothes just tumbled for an hour. That was the first problem I’ve had with these machines but I had a bigger problem. When I went home for lunch I’d brought the jar we keep our laundry money in back to the trailer and left it there. I then had to walk back to get more coins so that I could move our clothes to a dryer that worked. That caused me not to finish the laundry until nearly 2:30. Luckily I had just got back to the laundry room when the skies opened up and really gave the ground a good soaking. 

Back at the trailer Kathy had been busy doing more research and found a few more trailers locally that could fit our needs but we have a slight problem. They are not at our preferred dealer that we would like to deal with. Even though we were the ones who weren’t in a hurry to start we now realize that the longer we wait to trade in our trailer the less it will be worth. After a bit of discussion this afternoon we’ll go back and have a talk with Rob at Sun Parlour Trailer tomorrow because we are now less than three months before we’ll be on our way to the southwest. 

The rest of the afternoon just flew by and we mainly stayed inside due the 106 F (41 C) Humidex outside. We were soon on our way to the 19th Hole Restaurant at the front of the park to meet with our friend Louise and her husband Ray. We haven’t seen Louise in what seemed like ages and this was our first time meeting Ray. As soon as we were all seated the conversation never stopped as a fact the poor waitress had to come back several times before we made our order. The meals were all delicious and the service great as usual.  

To free up the table we headed back to our trailer where we showed them our home on wheels and answered many questions. They are not RVers themselves but have been considering it as a possible means of traveling. At times there were multiple conversations going on at the same time but it was all productive and informative at the same time. It was quite the shock when we saw it was past 10:00 so after a little more talking we had to say our good nights but we’ll be seeing them again before we go south. 

Tomorrow we’ll try to get some of our own questions answered so we’ll know what our next move is concerning our trailer. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy! 

It’s about time.
