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.

Getting Better, Used As Examples, Finding Those Little Things and Blogging Is Good For Your Health.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

You can really tell that someone is not feeling well. When they sleep most of their day away and still manage to sleep soundly beyond their normal wake up time. That happened to the both of us last night which had its good points and a drawback. It takes Kathy longer to recover from ailments then it takes me so she was still recovering from the symptoms she had last week. I woke feeling better but still having some pressure but it should clear with time. 
Toasted Bagel, Yogurt with mixed berries and Coffee for lunch.
The bad part about sleeping until nearly 9:00 this morning was that we had an appointment this afternoon and we had plenty of things we needed to get done first. After having a light breakfast, doing our normal morning reading and chores we then had to have an early lunch. Eating twice in two and a half hours is something from the days we were still working but by once again keeping it light we survived. 

We were out the door by 12:00 and headed to the West-End of Windsor hoping to make our appointment on time. There has been so much construction that we never realized took place in the last few years, plus all the construction that is presently taking place it was a guessing game of which route to take. As we started getting tied up in a traffic delay on Walker Road a quick turn onto Highway 3 seemed like the answer. Within fifteen minutes we arrived at our destination. 

We were meeting our financial adviser Mark who over time has become a friend who has shared the joys of his growing family with us. He even admits using us (without saying our names) as an example to other clients who don’t know if they would be able to afford to travel in their RVs. He also has asked us about advice on RVing with his family so that they could get closer to nature. Even though he is far from the age of retirement he is also using us as an example for when his day does arrive. Kathy always gets a hug and I a handshake when we leave. 

We headed back to Huron Church Road and stopped at Bogar’s Truck Parts and Service. We purchased some Marker Signal Lights at a Luv’s Truck Stop that I will install on the sides of our trailer. When they were removed from their packages the other day I was surprised to see they required a special plug in socket on the rear. When I looked at Princess Auto on Saturday and they didn’t have it I knew I’d find them here. They carry hundreds of different plugs and they are reasonably priced. 

We then drove to the Payless Shoe Store on Dougal Avenue where Kathy was looking for comfortable Slip On Shoes. She found a pair immediately and is very happy with them. 

Driving over to the West-End Walmart we found the replacement Trash Container we were looking for as well as few other things. 

It was only 3:30 but with having eaten two light meals for the day we decided to stop at Taco Bell for supper. The value meals were more then enough to satisfy our cravings and we were soon heading towards McGregor

We were almost out of the Windsor city limits when Kathy suggested looking at the Windsor Crossing Outlet Mall. Around a few more corners and we were there. The reason for checking it out was because when the decision was made by our Canadian Federal Government to expand the highway many of the stores at that location were removed. After driving around in the parking lot to see the changes we stopped at a store that was never there before, the Dollarama. We walked the aisles and found they had some of the things we couldn’t find at other locations and other things we found they didn’t. The good thing about shopping there is it doesn’t break the bank. 

Back Home we had everything put away with time to spare before the 6 o’clock News started. It wouldn’t be until the Blog was being written that it was realized we hadn’t taken our evening medication. That would not have been good for Kathy. Who says Blogging isn’t good for your health? Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
