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.

If you recall it started raining shortly after I got Home from Work yesterday and was still coming down when we closed up for the night. Now guess what we could hear all night and what we woke up to. Kathy had been worried that we’d need to add Pontoons to the Trailer so we would float instead of sinking. It was difficult for the Camera to focus on anything beyond the Raindrops on our Window but the Farmers Field was once again trying to form another Great Lake. When I checked the Rain Gauge we had gotten above One and a Quarter Inches of Rain overnight.

It was a mistake having a Lite Breakfast before nearly running out the door. The first place we stopped was Guardian Storage in Windsor to find no Mail waiting for us to pick up. We headed to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit where we added our old CPAP Machines to the mix. We’ll definitely be doing a major clean up next Spring.

We then needed to go to Motor City Community Credit Union to get some Laundry Money. Thinking we had plenty of time I was surprised to find the door locked because they don’t open until 9:30 on Saturday mornings. Luckily I was one of the first in the door so we were soon on our way.
We barely arrived on time for our 10:00 appointment which left us very disappointed over the condition of the Units and shocked at the high asking price. We were told of other places to try that were not found On-Line only to have the same kind of luck.
We had thought that this kind of thing would happen so we came prepared by bringing my Laptop along. We stopped at a Wendy’s and ordered our usual meal off their Value Menu and proceeded to do more research while we ate an early lunch. Luckily we had brought our Raincoats with us and even though the Rain seemed to be missing us they were no match at keeping us warm inside the Wendy’s because their Air Conditioner was keeping everything cold. With a fresh list of places to go we were soon headed back in the same direction as we had just come from which is something we always try to avoid.

After many more disappointing stops we called ahead and got a positive answer. We were on our way to Essex to visit our daughter-in-law Jen and the kids. We haven’t seen them since Haigans Birthday back in late June. We heard about all the exiting things they were able to do as a family this past summer and what they have planned for this Fall. Connor was away with the Cadets for a Weekend Trip and that Haigan had also joined. Emma is doing good in College and just advanced to the finals in a local Singing Contest. Jen didn’t realize that I was back to work and that Kathy was having so many Medical Procedures done.

We were Home around 5:00 and after getting my Computer set up again Kathy made Perogies with Sour Cream, Real Bacon Bits and Shredded Cheese along with a Yogurt Cup for dessert. They were tasty by quite filling. No snacks needed tonight.

While I did up the Dishes Kathy was back On-Line doing more research. Hopefully we’ll have this resolved before it’s time to leave the Park at the end of next month. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
