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.

Restless Night Again, Errands and Grand Opening.

Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

This morning at breakfast Kathy said she had a restless night’s sleep. Strange because she seemed to be sleeping soundly every time that I got up throughout the night. I even spent time on the Computer after taking an Extra Strength Tylenol so that I could get some sleep.
When I opened the Balcony Blinds at 8:00 this morning the surrounding landscape had once again been covered by a blanket of White. I had plans that I wanted to do this morning but even though I was awake the lack of sleep was dragging me down.
Kathy and I spent the remainder of the morning on the Computers before working together to make lunch. On the menu was Tuna Sandwiches with Coconut Macaroons, Clementines and Yogurt Cups for dessert all topped off with Berry Berry Tea.

After cleaning up the Dishes we were soon out the door. The first place we went was our daughter Karen’s house in Tecumseh. Remembering that we’d drop off Homemade Soup whenever we made some years ago it seems that she is keeping the Homemade tradition going. Looks like we’ll be enjoying some Beef Barley Soup. Sanford was home alone and appreciated a few scratches behind his ears but would have preferred that we stay longer.

Next we stopped at Shoppers Drug Mart where we picked up some Melatonin. We learned about this from our Dear Friends Wayne and Sue who we spent time with at La Posa South LTVA near Quartzsite. Our bodies naturally produce Melatonin as a way of making us sleep but sometimes it just needs a boost. Due to all the different medications that Kathy takes she will not be able to use it.
The next stop was Guardian Storage where we checked our Mail before going to our Storage Unit. The other day while I was away Kathy was going to bake something but couldn’t because she didn’t have a Blender. After moving a few boxes around there was the one that said Kitchen Appliances. Within seconds it was opened and the Blender that was at the top was being brought back to the Apartment.
It seems like all the food in our Fridge just disappears so we stopped at the Zehr’s grocery store where we got loads of Vegetables along with some Meat so Kathy can make one of her special dishes.
It was already past 4:00 so we stopped at Taco Bell where we used a Coupon to have a satisfying supper at a reduced price. The reason we did that was so I could digest my meal before going to workout.

Working together at the Apartment it didn’t take long to get all our purchases put away. Kathy wanted to see more CNN about what is happening with our neighbours.

When I arrived at Planet Fitness the place was packed with easily Two Hundred People but my discomfort level said I needed to be there. The reason for the crowds was it was the Grand Opening which I had forgotten about. It was a little tight finding equipment that I could use to improve my condition but after Two Hours I didn’t have a pain in my body and was re-energized.

Back at the Apartment Kathy informed me that our son Ken was not only transferred from Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit back to Windsor Regional Hospital but was sent home to Harrow with a long list of Dos and Don’ts. Now we have to hope he will follow them.

Even though I’m tired I’ll be taking a Melatonin tonight to be certain that I have a restful night. 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

Your favourite food is only available at state fairs.


  1. I have no idea how you two get so much done each day when it is cold and snowing outside.

    Good news about your son! I hope Melatonin works for you unfortunately it never did for me.

  2. I'm curious to see if the melatonin works.

  3. Good news for you son, wishing him a speedy recover

  4. Glad your son was released from the hospital. Exercise at a gym has the opposite affect on me so I don't do it.
