It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Doing Research, Finishing Our 8840 Forms and Ready Player One.

Our Location today is at Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

As mentioned in last night’s Blog after playing outside with Sanford I was ready to crawl in bed the minute that I got inside, but I had to write the Blog. We also mentioned that the lower basement where we have set up our temporary bedroom is probably the coldest room in the house next to the garage which seems to make us sleep so soundly it’s amazing that we can even wake up.

I didn’t wake until after 9:00 this morning myself and just busied myself reading on the Computer. I let Kathy sleep until she woke on her own. We took our time before going upstairs to have our breakfast of which the hot Coffee was the most appreciated.

Since the temperature was suppose to reach the low Forties we finished the morning doing research and getting the information needed to mail out our 8840 Forms to the I.R.S. since we now had our completed Income Tax Returns to prove our claims. The other research went much deeper then we expected so we didn’t even stop for lunch. We would finally leave the basement close to 5:00 this evening. After spending all that time in the basement (by our choosing) we were again experiencing a touch of “Cabin Fever”.

Normally we go for a weekly visit with our son and daughter-in-law on Wednesday evenings but because of other commitments they had we’ll have to wait until next week. That means we’ll have more to talk about when we get together.

Our first destination was the Shoppers Drug Mart where the Post Office stays open until 8:00 in the evening unlike the Canada Post Office itself. We needed a US Stamp but by going to the counter like that the Envelope was stamped and put in a container that would be processed at the Main Post Office in Windsor this evening and be across the border by midnight.

We then went to A&W where we again used coupons we get through the mail to buy our supper at a reduced price. The sun even shone on our table for about Half a Minute before disappearing again behind the heavy clouds.

We drove over to the Lakeshore Cinema and we were surprise how few people were there as it is normally packed. We went to see the futuristic movie Ready Player One directed by Steven Spielberg and we were the only ones in the theater. The newspapers are already saying that this is the Highest Grossing Movie in History. Would you expect anything less from a Spielberg Movie? Anyone that is into Video Games or Virtual Reality this movie is a “Must See”. From the very beginning it will keep you on the edge of your seat and it proves that just because you see it on the Computer doesn’t mean that it’s true. We both gave it Two Thumbs Up. If this movie doesn’t win any awards for Special Effects something is definitely wrong.

When we stepped outside we were again getting a lite Snow Flurry but with the temperatures just above Freezing it was melting fairly quickly. It was after 9:00 when we got back to Karen’s and she was the only one still up.

Tomorrow we’ll try to put some of today’s research to good use. Thanks for following along, feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
