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.

Errands and Enjoying Visiting With Our Daughter.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

When we helped the kids celebrate their Anniversary last night Melissa had set out some snacks for everyone to enjoy and we did. Even though we didn’t overindulge ourselves like in the past because we have been cutting down on our snacks at night it came back to haunt us. Kathy and I both had such an interrupted sleep that we were as tired when we got up this morning as when we went to bed last night.

We both slept later this morning and felt draggy but knew we had too much to do today. By 11:00 we were on our way out the door driving the truck towards Windsor.  We prefer taking the car to the city because it gets better mileage and is easier to get in tight parking lots but it can’t haul large items like the truck.

Our first stop was VitalAire on Grand Marais where we got copies of the bills for the Mask Liners for my CPAP Mask and submit the prescription. I need to go through this process of having the payment Denied by our Supplemental Health Care Insurance so that we can declare them as a Medical Exemption on our Income Tax Return.

Our second stop was at Guardian Storage to pick up our mail. I was particularly looking forward to it because the Tightening Knobs that I had ordered to use on our Solar Panels from Amazon had been delivered and I’d seen that on the tracking tab.

Stop number three was Dollarama on Tecumseh Road East. We had gone to the Amherstburg location last night and they didn’t have what we had been looking for. Since all the different outlets are independently owned and operated we kept our fingers crossed. We lucked out on one thing but not the other.

It was already 1:30 and our late breakfast was gone so we walked over to Harvey’s for lunch. Since Harvey’s was one of the places listed on the Gift Card that we used the other day and there was still some money on it that’s where we used more of it on our lunch today.

Last week when we purchased my new cell phone at Bell store in the Tecumseh Mall they had accessories for those LG Brand phones. When we purchased our new LG TracFones in Parker, Arizona this winter we hunted all over unsuccessfully trying to get the protective Screen Cover and Body Shield. The associate at Bell looked through their stock but deemed those phones to be the older LG K4 models that they no longer carry and when they no longer carry them they get rid of those accessories as well.

Leaving the Bell store disappointed, we saw a Cell Phone Kiosk where the young attendant told us if it was a U.S. Phone they didn’t have anything for it. When I mentioned the Bell associate had called it an older LG K4 she immediately found the accessories right away. Ten minutes later everything was installed and we were on our way. Now we can breathe easier knowing our TracFones are protected.

Stop number seven was at Payless Shoes in the Mall where even though they had a Sale on for sandals we couldn’t find any shoes for Kathy.

Since we were bringing dessert we had to head to Sobeys in Lakeshore to pick it up before turning around and heading back to the west-end of Windsor. We were having supper at our daughter Rose’s home at 4:30 but unfortunately the quickest way to get to her home turned into the longest way as it was plagued with the fifth season of the year, Construction. We were lucky to have continued moving at a single mile per hour.

Just as we arrived I received a call that the Plastic Barrel we’d ordered had to be picked up today by 4:30. After I spoke with Rose momentarily I left to go pick up the Barrel while Kathy stayed and visited. I made the round trip in the estimated twenty minutes which only delayed our meal by ten minutes.

Our meal was good but we don’t eat big meals like that anymore as a fact Kathy and I shared the one plate and we were stuffed. After having dessert our twelve year old grandson D.J. left to go visit with his cousins for the weekend. That gave the adults time to discuss things that are happening, problems they are having with their roof and our plans for returning to the Southwest next fall.

We left after 8:30 and stopped at the Zehrs Super Store on Walker Road where we picked up the few supplies we need to see us through the weekend. We finally got Home by 9:30 at which time we still had to unload the truck. 
The sun had set by the time Kathy got this shot.
Maybe we can actually accomplish something around Home tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
