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.

Emptied Our Storage Unit, Hauled Lots To The Trailer and We’re Really Tired.

Our Location today is at Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

I was up by 8:30 this morning and sat quietly reading at the Computer until shortly after 9:00 when I went upstairs and then turned the lights on when coming back downstairs. Cruel as it may sound I had to push an earlier starting time because we tend to tire out much quicker in the later part of the afternoon. The due date on the Storage Unit is the 18th so we needed to get it cleaned out today to avoid paying any further charges.

After getting dressed and heading upstairs to have breakfast we were in for a surprise to find the Dish Washer on and there were no Cereal Bowls left in the cupboard. Not wanting to delay our chores we were soon out the door with our first stop at McDonalds. By that time even the Hot Coffee tasted good. Kathy had a Bagel Sandwich while I had Breakfast Wrap.

We arrived at the Storage Unit by 10:00 and finished bundling up the Unfolded Boxes along with loading the rest of the articles into the Truck. We then drove over to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit where we had a couple of things to accomplish. After unloading the Boxes from the Truck, we had to move things out into the Hallway. Since our Clothing Racks are on wheels which makes it easy to do.

This weekend at Wildwood Golf and RV Park they open the Gates to the Public and they allow any of the Seasonal RVers as well as those living in the Park Models to have a Yard Sale to sell what ever they no longer want. Even though we are just getting resettled into our Home Kathy wants to get rid of some things we know we’ll never use again so we spent a little time getting things out to sell.

With the Truck partly loaded we headed up to the Office to be certain they knew the Storage Unit was empty and the Trailer was gone yesterday.

We were back at Karen’s house in Tecumseh shortly after 11:30 and after moving the Car into the Driveway started bringing things up to bring back to the Trailer. Poor Sanford must have known what we were doing and didn’t want us to leave. He checked everything Kathy was packing and followed me up the stairs with each load I carried. Not wanting to be opening and closing the Front Door I stacked everything in the Garage. We had boxes of Canned Goods from our Pantry that we had barely had time to eat along with a number of other things. Once the Car was loaded I finished packing the Truck with our Weber Q, Tandem Bicycle and a number of other things before we left.

It was past 2:30 when we pulled into A&W with both of our vehicles. We were already feeling drained but we were physically working off what we were eating. 
The Trees are filling with colour.
We only got stopped a couple of times for School Buses and arrived at our Site at Wildwood just past 3:30. As I would unload things from the Vehicles Kathy was putting things away. Larry stopped by to say “Welcome Home” and he even gave me a hand getting the Bike off the back of the Truck. Once both Kathy and I were working inside at putting things away we were noticing that Items were not where they used to be. It was amazing that after only a Month and a Half we weren’t putting things back exactly where they used to be. That will come with time.

It was past 7:00 when we took the Truck and left the park for the night. When we finally return tomorrow I have to repair the leak at the Drain Plug that was removed from our Hot Water Heater at the Jayco Center.
Fields are drying and Trees filling in.
We stopped at Dairy Queen and each had a Cheeseburger Combo which included a Sundae for dessert for our late supper. We’re almost done and looking forward to having Home Cooked Meals.

Tomorrow we know that we won’t have the Basement empty, but we have to be ready to sleep in our Home by tomorrow night. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Words of Inspiration

To see a World in a Grain of Sand,

And Heaven in a Wild Flower,

Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,

And Eternity in an hour.
