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.

More Organizing and Purging.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada. 

Could it be that we are just so relaxed since we are sleeping in our new Home on our site at Wildwood Golf and RV Park that we are suddenly not having a problem sleeping at night. Then again it could be that we have been so busy since getting back to our site getting everything organized. 
Due to her heart condition Kathy requires more sleep than I do and especially after the mental strain of our move it will take her longer to recover. I was up by 7:30 and she slept an extra hour. At breakfast the main focus was again on organizing and changing things around. Remembering that we had the Avalanche ten days shy of five years before we finally had everything where we knew we could find it.  
Even though we had accomplished a lot yesterday we had to go back and refine some of those things. Kathy suggested that I put the linens on the upper shelf rather than the bottom which in the end made more room for toiletries and other supplies on the lower shelf. Kathy relocated her pantry supplies to a lower counter cabinet making it easier to look down to see what she wants rather than trying to see above her head. 

After having another late lunch, I contacted Jim at Windsor Gas and Diesel asking what is happening with the truck. He had sent them an angry E-mail after hearing my message on Tuesday morning because we can’t have this happening if we are towing our trailer and are out of the area. The company called him back within an hour to discuss the problem and what they had repaired and replaced on the processor last month. He informed them he was getting the same codes and the symptoms were exactly the same. This company stands behind their work but felt it was better that just they refund what they had charged us for the repair and that we should order a new processor from Ford. Jim had already done that and will not charge us any labor so the only charge we are looking at is the price difference and he’s hoping the part could be in tomorrow. That’s what you call looking out for your customers. He’s got us hooked. 
There were a number of trips made to the Park Trash and Recycle Area this afternoon as well as loading things in the trunk of the car that will be returned to the stores for refunds as well as a few things going back to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit. It’s not perfect yet but much more functional that yesterday. 

For supper I grilled up a couple of steaks while Kathy sautéed some vegetables as well as making an herbed pasta. Our first cooked meal in our new Home and it all tasted wonderful and was another celebratory meal. 
Around 8:00 I called our son Gary’s cell to wish him a Happy Birthday but only got his voice message. Minutes later he returned my call because he had been driving and didn’t want to be driving distracted especially on a highway. The family had been to Quebec to see our granddaughter Emma as a cadet instructor in dress parade. Since he was on vacation the family also visited the Old Quebec City, the new City of Quebec and finally Montreal while they were on their way home. It’s a trip the entire family will remember. 

Tomorrow will be a more relaxed day so we’ll run a few errands and hopefully one will be to pick up the truck. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy! 

It’s about time.

  1. Once the work of arranging and re-arranging is done, it sure gives you a great feeling that you have things the way they work for you. Good news about your truck, hope you have it back soon.

  2. Slowly by surely y'all will get everything in its right place.

  3. In a small space, it is nice to know where things are:)

  4. So glad you're in and getting settled. I'm almost finished packing my small trailer for my trip to Colorado. I find myself organizing, then reorganizing, and then wondering where I put something! LOL Wishing you lots of happy times in your new home. Can't wait to hear about your travels.
