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.

Dealing With Surgery Restrictions.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Even after taking a Tylenol before going to bed and another a few hours later I barely slept last night. After staring at the ceiling for two hours I was up before 7:00 this morning and even managed to see the Sun come up. With all the Window Shades raised and Breakfast close to being served I got an early start on the Computer. Kathy managed a full night’s sleep and came down to join me around 8:00. 
Still damp from yesterday's rain as the sun came up.
By 8:00 this morning the Humidex was already at the Century Mark. After breakfast we made it a Two-Cup morning at the Computers. We managed to get our indoor chores done but the minute I stepped outside it was like you were being Grilled. There was nothing that important to do so I just went back inside. 

Kathy put together a Greek Pasta Salad to go with some Perogies for lunch and Grapes along with a Raspberry French Pastry for dessert. We figured we’d have our larger meal for lunch.

When someone has Cataract Surgery they are given a list of restrictions they are not supposed to do because it could cause the Implant to move or even cause the Retina to detach. The Two that both Kathy and I have found to be the worst are “No bending over or looking straight down” and “No lifting anything over Ten Pounds”. Living in our RV means we have less space then a Sticks and Bricks so we are constantly finding ourselves bent over looking in low mounted storage. The other day we went grocery shopping and I had to haul One Bag at a time into the Trailer. We bought to a Four Liter Jug of Distilled Water we use for our CPAPs and that weighed Ten Pounds by itself. The neighbours that were watching me must have thought I was a wuss. Kathy’s restrictions have been lifted. I can’t wait for that to happen so I can get some work done. 
The grass is greener over there.
Having cut the grass the day before my last Cataract Surgery on Thursday it has already grown enough for the Rabbits to stop in for an afternoon snack. 

We watched a matinee movie titled “Gothic” which was sometimes hard to follow because they made it look like there was something supernatural going on, while it ended up being only their imaginations.

After a very lite supper we settled back on the Computers. Tomorrow is supposed to be warmer but we’ve got things to do. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Words of Inspiration

And when a woman's will is as strong as the man's who wants to govern her, half her strength must be concealment.

George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans), English Novelist


  1. I constantly had to remind Jim not to bend over. Or not to pick up Rocky because he weighs twelve pounds. It was frustrating and we were both overjoyed when the time was up.

  2. It was really hard for me being that I live alone and I drop things constantly. So happy I have a very old good grabber that is wood and has the metal grabbers.

  3. That would really be tough, not bending over especially. LOL Soon you will be free again to do what you want.

  4. Interesting ... I never had any dont-bend-over restrictions with my surgery. Only no lifting and no rubbing my eyes. You will be past this part very soon ... and you'll be back to normal.

  5. Be sure to follow doctor's orders. You don't want to have issues and have to repeat any surgery.
    Take care of yourselves!
