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.

Resolving Problems and Making Progress.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

Last night after posting our blog I had the chore of making certain that all the prescription medication we had ordered for our southerly trip was accounted for. I meticulously counted each tablet in each container to be certain we had a full count and then it happened. All the vials I had checked were correct but somehow one of the pills just wasn’t there. I found the list I’d given to the pharmacy and found a note that the doctor had cancelled it. It should not have been and at 11:00 at night I could only get the Drug Store’s version of the story. 

Of course with that on our minds both Kathy and I had a super restless night of which I was on the computer for over three hours just trying to calm myself enough to sleep. Kathy has Restless Leg Syndrome and was dreaming she was running all night. Was it any wonder she woke totally exhausted this morning. 

After breakfast Kathy called her family doctor inquiring why they had cancelled a medication that her Cardiologist said she needed. They looked over the FAX request from the Pharmacy and said that particular med was not listed but to be certain we’d have them would immediately FAX the prescription to the Drug Store. Notice everyone pointing the finger at the other person while saying “Not Me!” 

We finished off the morning on the computers doing what was needed. For lunch we finished the last of the homemade Turkey Noodle Soup while watching the Weather Channel that was giving us a not so favorable forecast. 

We then headed over to the Drug Store to pick up not only the pills we’d just had ordered this morning but my medications that they had told me earlier this week they could not reach my doctor until next Monday. We headed to the Devonshire Mall where we had to return some gloves at Mark’s Workwear. We then went inside the mall to get some walking exercise in since it was so dreary and damp outside. We did stop at the Dollar Store to pick up a few travel snacks for when we hit the road. Back at the apartment we had a simple supper and once the dishes were washed I busied myself filling the Daucets. 

Kathy and I would like to welcome the newest follower to our blog Anne Chisholm from the blog The AccidentalRVers. Reading Anne’s post she and her husband Archie had planned on doing like Kathy and I by renting an apartment in Nova Scotia but when that didn’t pan out and their home was sold they changed their plans and are now The Accidental fulltime RVers. We are looking forward to following more of your travels as we start more of our own. 

Now that we’ve resolved another problem we can only hope that we’ll sleep well tonight. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.        


Did you hear about the dog who went to a flea circus?

No, what happened?

He stole the show.


  1. The pill thing sounds like a case of....The buck stops.....right over there!

  2. Good thing you checked out all you meds before hitting the road.

  3. Always tough to have a bad night and then be able to function the next morning. But you have some great adventures awaiting you, so it only gets better from here on!
