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.

Still Healing and Stocking Up.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

Thanks to all the commenters that understood the side effects that medications can have on people. I believe the doctor had no way of knowing I would react because I am not on any other medications. Now if that had happened to Kathy it could have been devastating as the medication that did not work for her last winter in Florida was reacting to her other meds and it was not until after we had left the country that the Pharmacists caught the mistake. 

Unfortunately this medication can have residual effects for up to thirty days after being taken but I only took it for three days so I can only hope the time is much shorter for recovery. Last night was the worst night of the last three where I spent only a half hour in bed and the rest of the night I spent being a contortionist trying to find a way to sleep. Tylenol did nothing for the pain and it was not until Kathy got up at 8:30 that she found the Ibuprofen. Within an hour of taking it I actually fell asleep for over an hour.
It wasn’t until after lunch that I felt steady enough to walk. Needing the exercise we headed back to Walmart but first we went through our pantry and cupboards to check our food stocks. Armed with a list of things that Kathy needed so she can make soup and a few other things that we are picking up because they are on sale and we will be putting them in the trailer when we head south this winter we headed off to the store. The other day we had noted several of the items we use that were on sale for less than half price which is a good buy. We walked strictly around the grocery section of the store and if something on our list was no longer on sale we left it on the shelf and on our shopping list for a future outing. 
We got our exercise and our savings and we even stopped for a soft drink at McDonalds before heading home. After putting the food stocks away we were able to sit at the computers for a short while until it was time for me to grill a couple of cheeseburgers on the Weber Q while Kathy made a nice Taco Salad to go with it.
Once the dishes were clean and put away we headed over to our daughter Karen’s for our weekly Sunday night visit. With the onset of the cooler weather they decided to close their pool this weekend but were very surprised when Sanford barked his objections. When he would be playing in the back yard and got hot he would just dive in the pool and do laps to cool down knowing he could get out at the stairs. Being a Lab who loves swimming it was like having his toys taken away. We learned more of what is happening tomorrow when our granddaughter Kylla has another surgery on her knee that she injured on a ski trip with her high school a year and a half ago. 

As I’m about to post this blog our DSL system just went down and I’ve tried unsuccessfully to reboot it a few times so now we’re on the hub. Tomorrow we’ve got a few errands to run including getting our preferred internet system going but things are starting to come together for our trip south this winter. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

What's gray, has four legs, and a trunk?

A mouse going on holiday.


  1. Good luck with talking with the doctor tomorrow. We hope he can get you some relief.

  2. The side affects of some medications can sometimes be worse that what they are treating you for.
    And they affect each person differently. good luck.

  3. So frustrating with the medications. Hope they get it straightened out for you and you'll feeling better soon
