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.

Dumb Reasons For Government Restrictions.

I was so tired by the time that I went to bed something dramatic could have happened and I wouldn’t have heard it. Even though this was a day off from work when I saw that it was 7:00 this morning I got up. The reason being to not change my hours of sleep too drastically so it will not be a problem during the Week.
After getting things ready for breakfast and opening the Window Shades I immediately noticed how wet things were outside. Drops on the Windows, puddles on the Road and Patio. That’s strange I didn’t hear a thing. I started my On-Line reading on the Computer even getting caught up on things that I had missed throughout the week. It was close to 8:30 by the time Kathy joined me downstairs. While we ate breakfast she related how the Rain had come down so hard for over an Hour that it kept her awake. Later when I checked the Rain Gauge there was Three Quarters of an Inch that had fallen overnight.

As soon as I had finished eating I started getting set to do our Forty-Five Days of Pill Doucettes. I always start with Kathy’s because most of hers are Prescribed Medications while mine are simply Vitamins. I hadn’t gotten too far when I noticed there were no Refills in the bag that we got at the Pharmacy Eleven Days ago. Checking further I found another. Trying to call the Pharmacy the call would immediately go to a message that said the Voice Mailbox was Full and to call back later.
Kathy and I headed out to Amherstburg to Pharma Choice drug store. As we walked in the first person we saw was Steve the Pharmacist dressed in street clothes. He was there on his day off resetting the Phones that were knocked out of service by last night’s storm that I slept through.

When I gave him the Empty Vials and asked why he looked it up and gave me an answer. The One for Kathy’s Rheumatoid Arthritis I was correct in thinking that it was a Pain Medication and the Government has set up guidelines so they are not abused. The Second Medication ranks higher on that list but strangely it is a Medication that helps control her Thyroid. Something so small and simple is actually more dangerous then the Pain Medications.
To save time we stopped at Subway on our way Home. We share a Sub cut in half so that we can add the fixings on that we each like.

Back Home I simply reduced the Pill Doucettes down to Thirty-Two Days. Then I’ll be able to reorder those pills by then. The biggest problem I’ll have for a while is realigning all the Refills at the same time.
I managed to get everything put away by 3:00 when we were heading out the door for Windsor. We had an appointment to review our Sleep Over Data at the Windsor Sleep Disorder Clinic. They had raised the setting on Kathy’s CPAP Machine over a month ago. Her sleep study showed the new setting to be perfect for her. My test came back inconclusive and I now need to use a different Machine for a Month so they will know what my setting should be.
It was nearly 5:00 when we left there so we stopped at the Michigan Diner/Hi-Ho Restaurant to have supper. It seemed that we just received our meals when there was a surge of people coming in for the same reason.
When we finished our meal we headed over to the Great Canadian Superstore to get a few more grocery items. Since Kathy had forgotten her Shopping List so we are sure that we missed a few things.

Back Home after getting things put away I found that I’ll need to count our Pills again so my records will match up. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Words of Inspiration

He was a wise man who invented beer.



  1. Even on your day off you are quite the busy man.

  2. That's one reason I get my prescriptions in Mexico. Since my Doctor agrees they work just fine, I've been picking them up over the counter. The good part is none are considered pain medications.

  3. That's a lot of running around once again! Too bad about your prescriptions, hope it's not a problem when you go south! Love the diner, looks like my kitchen table and chairs :)

  4. Seems like you stayed quite busy running around a lot on your day off.
