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.

Change of Plans, Getting Hooked Up, Meeting Our New Neighbours and Walmart Shocker.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

With the outside temperature dropping down to 50 F (10 C) overnight and the fact that we had our windows open we had no problems whatsoever to sleep. What we did have was trouble with was waking up. It was 8:00 when I looked at the clock so I headed straight to the living room and started opening the Window Shades before getting things ready for breakfast. The bright sunlight reflecting down the hallway was enough to wake Kathy and she was soon joining me downstairs. 
This morning we had sunny skies.
Even though I had plans to get more things completed outside on our site Kathy reminded me that it had been over a week since the Laundry had been done last so my plans got changed a little. We did take the time to do our morning reading while we enjoyed our Coffee/Tea. By 9:30 the inside chores were finished and it was time to gather and sort the laundry. It didn’t take long to get that ready but there were things that just kept popping up and before I knew it Kathy was making us an early lunch. I loaded everything in our folding shopping cart and headed out to get things cleaned.

I’ve mentioned many times that RVers are the most Helpful and Friendly people around. I also mentioned that last year we had a neighbour disguised as an RVer that made it his business to insult and make life miserable for anyone he talked to. When we returned to Wildwood Golf and RV Park this spring we were treated to the news that he wasn’t returning. Everyone on 3rd Street was happy to hear the news. While doing the laundry today there were people living in other parts of the Park talking about that person. It was sad to hear that a person like that one could be recognized for such Negativity instead of being what he tried to be he passed himself off as an RVer.

When we moved to our new site on Tuesday we were so busy trying to get everything moved over that I never bothered to hook up our Sewer Connection. After getting the clothes in the dryers I returned to the trailer to hang the delicates to dry in the shower. That gave me just enough time to make the connection and to dump our Waste Tanks before washing up and heading back to the Park Laundry Room

It was nearly 3:30 when I got back Home with the folded laundry and our new neighbours had arrived at our old site while I was away and Kathy had already spoken with them. They’d had a little problem when they were backing in and were now waiting for someone from the Park to come and replace the Sewer Connection that they rolled over.

We needed some groceries and we weren’t feeling like cooking so we headed to Amherstburg and went to McDonalds to have their Sweet Chili Wrap for supper.

We also wanted to look for a few things for our Flowerbed so we headed to Walmart where the other day we had gotten a nice five-foot Emerald Cedar for our site. When we drove past their Outdoor Garden Section all the trees that were still there were turning brown because nobody is watering them. We also got a surprise as we started to get groceries that they announced the store was closing in ten minutes. They always stay open until 9:00 but they suddenly changed their Sunday hours to 6:00. Amherstburg is not that small a town.

Kathy was so upset that they would do such a thing she just wanted to go Home. Instead I drove to the Sobeys Grocery Store where right on the front door it showed they were open until 11:00 everyday. We got the rest of our groceries before we headed Home

We are expecting a few more days of cool temperatures before we get back to Summer Warmth so we are hoping to finish transforming our site in these few days. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
