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.

More Hang Ups, Using The List and Lots Of Hauling.

Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

For whatever the reason last night I managed to get an Hour of sleep before waking. Finally after Three Hours of laying in bed and starting to feel the aches in my back build I got up. After downing an Extra Strength Tylenol I sat at my Computer reading a few of the Blogs that I had missed reading earlier. Within a Half Hour my eyes were feeling weighted and I headed back to bed where I stayed until waking just after 8:00 this morning.

Once we finished our Coffee/Tea at the Computers we found a few more things that needed to be mounted on the walls. By having them spread around the apartment it gives it a more relaxed feeling.
Lunch was slightly different today with Kathy making Grilled Cheese Sandwiches to go with the Lipton Cup-Of-Soup. It had been ages since I had one of those and was quite surprised that most of the Salt had been left out of the mix.

Needing a bit of a break from the projects I decided to do Data Entries on our Expenditure Spreadsheet while Kathy cleaned the Dishes. She said the warm water helped the Arthritis in her hands.

After a couple hours my eyes were starting to cross not from being tired but because of the Tiny Print a lot of places are putting on their receipts.

We needed a few supplies so with our List in hand we headed out the door shortly after 2:30. With the Northeast Wind funnelling the Temperatures from the Detroit River between the buildings we were happy to be in the Car.

Our first stop was Guardian Storage where we found half our Mailbox full. We then travelled back to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit. After moving the Clothing Racks we were able to take only the Food Stocks we were running low on in the apartment. No need to haul it all to the apartment at this time because it would only get in the way. We then drove over to our Trailer where the Charge Controller Monitor showed that our Batteries were fully charged by our Solar Panels. We partially opened the One Slide so we could gather more Files, Books and DVDs to bring back to the apartment.

It was past 4:30 when we left the Trailer. We had managed to scratch quite a number of things off our List but there was still more to do.
We went to Home Depot to look at Area Rugs. Last evening Kathy had been On-Line looking for Rugs to replace the Oversized One that was too big and found their prices to be the most reasonable. There were a lot of choices but we finally found One that will suit our needs.

We stopped at Taco Bell where we had just enough to satisfy our appetites without making us feel stuffed.

We then drove to the Bulk Barn where we managed to stock up on Raisins and Nuts at a more reasonable price then the Grocery Stores.

Unfortunately we still had to stop at Zehr’s for some Margarine and Paper Towels.

We finally went to Walmart where we found the last few things on our List. At the Checkout there was a family who planned to purchase some Beer along with their groceries. Because the line they were in was not designated an Alcohol Line the Clerk refused to process them. Every Checkout with the Alcohol designation was closed but the Clerk still refused. Think management has to rethink their policy.

I dropped Kathy at the Front Entrance to our building and went to park the Car. Checking the Rear Entrance there were no Shopping Carts around. It took three trips before everything was upstairs. A hot Coffee helped get the chill out.

Tomorrow we’ll see if we can accomplish anything while we wait for the Cable Guy to get us hooked up. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

You Might Be a Redneck If

The yard lighting for your family reunion came from a police helicopter.


  1. I'm with Kathy washing dishes by hand. Sure sooths these arthritic fingers.

  2. OK, I am confused once more. I thought your trailer was in covered storage to protect it from the elements so how are the solar panels being charged?

  3. Gosh, I'm tired just reading what you did all day long. And you still have a list!! Those clouds over Home Depot look pretty ominous.
