Getting Our Medications, Fine Tuning and Counting Things Out.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

After laying in bed staring at the ceiling for some time this morning I finally decided just to get up and start my day. Was I in for a surprise when I finally looked at the clock and it showed that it wasn’t even 7:00 yet. Knowing that Kathy needs more sleep then I do I simply opened just a few Window Shades to retain my privacy because it was still dark outside. I simply turned my Computer on and started doing my morning reading. The nighttime low didn’t hit the freezing mark like it did yesterday so I didn’t have to turn the Furnace on until I heard Kathy getting out of bed.

For breakfast we had Cereal and talked about what we needed to accomplish today. We brought our Coffee/ Tea back to the Computers before getting started with anything else. I actually drank my Coffee faster then normal this morning because we needed to get moving. I called the Pharmacy and passed along Kathy’s Doctor’s message about double checking with her about one of her medications and that we would be around before noon to pick up our Winter Supply.

It was nearly 10:30 when we headed out but stopped by the end of 3rd Street to say our goodbyes to our old neighbours Ted and John. Ted will be staying home alone now that Eileen has passed and do some renovations on the house during the winter. John is having Knee Surgery in November before heading for Florida. They both wished us Safe Travels and will look forward to seeing us next spring.

It was shortly after 11:00 when we arrived at our son Kevin’s house in Amherstburg. While at our Climate Controlled Storage Unit the other day we found things that we won’t be using anytime in the future but we know Kevin can so we dropped them off. He was already in the garage starting to decorate for tomorrow night’s Halloween Party.

We didn’t stay long before heading over to Pharma Choice drug store. They had called Kathy’s Doctor to see if there were any changes but the Doctor had not responded to their call. They tried again while we were there but our lite breakfast was wearing off so we left to go for lunch.

We went to Subway just down the street. Kathy had an Assorted 6-inch Sub while I tried one of their new Chicken Caesar Wraps. They were both reasonably priced, tasty and we weren’t stuffed. We also got a card saying next Friday will be Buy One get the Second at Half Price. We experienced that somewhere in the US last year.

It was after 1:00 when we got back to the Pharmacy and they finally got the Doctor who said not to change the dosage. We had been concerned about a change to Kathy’s medication because her Doctor did that to us before we left for Florida in 2013 with disastrous results. Kathy had been in so much pain because the new medications were ineffective. We were wished Safe Travels before we left.

We got Home just before 2:00 and after bringing in our haul we both set about doing our own things. Kathy had Data Entries to make on our Expenditure Spreadsheet. After changing into my Coveralls, I went outside to adjust the Static Straps under the Truck which will make our travels more comfortable and less tiring. I also managed to find our Locks we use to secure things to the back of the trailer. In the hour and a half that I was outside the wind increased to 35 MPH Gusts and the temperature dropped to the point that I was shivering. With forecasted Showers I went inside to work.

Years ago our former Pharmacy had shortchanged some of Kathy’s diabetic medication and we didn’t notice it until we were in Florida. To extend its use Kathy only took half the dosage until we got home. Since that day I actually count every Prescription Pill that we get Twice. I didn’t find any shortages today but one bottle had Two Extra Capsules.

By the time I finished counting today’s Six-Month Supply of Medications the rain was coming down so Kathy checked the Fridge and Freezer to see what needed to be used up. We ended up finishing the last of the Perogies from the Freezer and we shared a Sweet Potato from the Fridge

The Rain is still falling and should stop around Noon tomorrow, so we should sleep like a couple of Rocks tonight. With the Halloween Party tomorrow, we’ll be keeping our chores indoors. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
