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.

Getting Closer To Fulltiming.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

With both Kathy and I having Sleep Apnea we are well aware that Insomnia is one of the side effects. When you don’t sleep properly at night you sleep later in the morning which messes up your sleep routine even more. It has been some time that my sister Anna introduced us to Sleepy Time Tea and for the most part it works quite well. Even dealing with a bad cold after having a cup of Sleepy Time Tea last night Kathy says she slept like a rock. I also had the same kind of tea and woke on and off all night but the bright side was that we were both up by 8:00 this morning so hopefully that will help us get back on schedule. 

As soon as breakfast was over this morning we got busy chopping the fixings for a food dish that Kathy wanted to make for supper. Once she had everything simmering on the stove I started sorting the laundry. I was surprise when I got downstairs to the laundry room that I was the only one there. During the wash cycle I managed to get my morning reading completed. When I returned from switching the clothes to the dryers Kathy had already heated our lunch in the microwave and stashed the dish she’d made earlier in the fridge for supper. 

By the time I returned with our folded clothes Kathy had gathered all the recycling in the apartment and was on the phone getting the problem she had found online yesterday finally straightened up. Dressing for the outdoors I brought out the recycle to the outdoor bins before going to rearrange our pick up bed. Since I’ve built in tool cabinets into the truck bed there is not much room to haul things so I had to dismantle the 5th wheel hitch. 

Anyone who has gone Fulltime knows that to do so you sell, donate, give away, sometimes store or throw things out. While I was awake in the middle of the night Sunday at 2:30 in the morning Monday I ordered a super high capacity storage unit from Amazon so that I can back up all our files and photos. Once that is complete I’ll be donating my large PC to Computers For Kids a charitable organization that recycles old computers so that underprivileged children have the same advantages as others learning to use the computer. Kathy and I were just finishing our supper that tasted great by the way when there was a knock on our door. Sixty-two hours after ordering the storage unit Purolator was putting it in my hands. Now another job begins. 

Another thing we cleared out of our office/workout room was our recumbent exercise-cycle. There is no room in our trailer and we’ll be using our bicycles more so we don’t need it. We’d heard that our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa were looking for an exercise bike because they were trying to get our grandson Cameron to use it as well as them. It wasn’t hard getting it downstairs and Kathy keeping an eye on it while I brought the truck around. Within minutes the bike was covered and tied down and we were on our way to Amherstburg. Imagine the look of their faces when we showed up with the bike. They’ll definitely be making use of it. We spent the rest of the evening enjoying our weekly visit together. 

To all our readers Kathy and I would like to wish you a Happy and Safe New Year and if you are attending any kind of New Year’s Eve Celebration please don’t drink and drive. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
