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.

J.T. Had The Plate, Busy Unpacking and Tiresome Day.

Our Location today is at Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

The sudden appearance of our Home being returned to us late in the day was a little too much for Kathy to take yesterday and she was in bed earlier then she normally is. I’ve always been the type that when something like that comes along I can push myself to get things accomplished.

We both slept quite soundly last night. Part of that was that it was Raining by the time Kathy went to bed and she was asleep by the time the Thunderstorms started. I simply sat on the edge of the bed this morning without any lights while Karen went in the Laundry Room trying not to disturb us. Minutes later she was heading out the front door and I moved to my Computer. Minutes later Kathy was getting up to start her day. 
Just Overcast at 9:30.
As soon as breakfast was over while Kathy made Sandwiches for our lunch I was on the Phone. My first call to Stephanie at Leisure Trailer had me leaving a Voice Message telling her our License Plate Number. 

Next, I called Carol at Guardian Storage to explain that there was no way to park the Trailer on our previous RV Spot because of the Large Boat. She verified that nobody was booked on C-50 so I was good to go. 
Wipers had a hard time keeping the Windows clear.
As I was hanging the phone up it started ringing. Stephanie had found the License Plate that had been put in a File Cabinet and it was there for us to pick up. J.T had not been in yesterday when our Trailer had arrived. He had removed it before it was shipped out for Liability Reasons. 
Birds watching the Golfers in the Rain.
We loaded the truck but took the Car to go to Leisure Trailer. Before we got there a Light Drizzle had started falling. I was in and out within a minute which surprised Kathy. 
The Rain didn't stop the Golfers.
Our next stop was our Site out at Wildwood Golf and RV Park. The Drizzle had changed to a Steady Rain but that didn’t stop the Golfers from being on the Links. Kathy thought they were all nuts. At our Site we noted the Gravel had not been delivered yet so after I got what we needed from the Garden Shed we stopped at the Office. I told Val that we were now loading the Trailer and could possibly be arriving tomorrow. She called Joe immediately and he said the Gravel would be there shortly.

We drove back to Karen’s house and simply parked the Car and took the Truck to go to Guardian Storage. We started at 11:00 and stopped for lunch around 1:30. Around 4:00 we each had a Gatorade because Water was just going through us. At 6:00 we just locked the door and went to Wendy’s for supper then back to work. We emptied Three Dozen Boxes, Two Large Suitcases, Two Small Tote Bags and Three Laundry Baskets just today. We still have to load everything in the Basement along with the Clothes, Food and Toiletries we have at our Daughter’s house. We are both tired tonight.

We’d like to thank all those giving us words of encouragement while we struggle to put our Home back together. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. You n Kathy are working really hard and fast and I can't blame you. I would want to be back in my own place too.
    I agree with Kathy golfers are a strange lot. =)

  2. Just a thought, check to make sure your solar set up is working ok. With all the work being done on the trailer you never know what might have happened

  3. I imagine you're in a rush to get the trailer loaded and your life back to normal. Think of it as a great time to reorganize everything! The only thing I like to do in the rain is watch it come down!!

  4. A very busy day! Sounds like things are going back in quickly, must have been very organized! How nice it will be for you to get back "home". Enjoy!
