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.

Meeting Our Son, Non-Stop Rain, Getting Our Keys and Starting To Move In.

Our Location today is at Wildwood Golf and RV Park, McGregor, Ontario.

Even with the sound of Rain tapping away on our roof we were up by 8:00 this morning. After having a Banana for breakfast we took our Coffee/Tea to do some Computer Reading before getting bundled up to go outside.
Notice the Rain forecasted for the rest of the Day.
It started before we were out of bed.
Our first stop this morning was Pharma Care Pharmacy in Amherstburg to pick up our 90 Day Supply of Prescriptions. Because it was raining Kathy decided to stay in the Car. As I approached the door who should be coming out but our son Kevin. He was there to get a Prescription for our grandson Cameron who was home from school sick in bed. We had planned to drop something off but we gave it to Kevin to take home because Kathy would surely catch what Cameron has because of her Weak Immune System.

We were back Home by 11:00 so Kathy decided an early lunch of Split Pea with Ham Soup was in order along with a couple of Crackers with Cheese. She then topped it off with a Yogurt Cup for our dessert.

We were out the door by 11:30 with our next destination being our Storage Unit at Guardian Storage in Windsor. We loaded the Living Room Chairs and Night Stands that we recently purchased in the back of the Car even though it was still raining they barely got wet. After loading the second Chair I remembered that I had forgotten my Back Support Belt in the Truck. We stopped at Princess Auto then Canadian Tire before I was able to find one.
The path by the grass is a popular Biking, Hiking, and Running
path called the Ganatchio Trail. It's Five Miles long and joins
other area trails that totally circle around the city of Windsor
Finally the moment we had been waiting for we arrived at the Riverside Tower Apartment building. Ana was on her way out for a Root Canal so her husband Joel gave us the Keys to our Apartment along with our Parking Passes and a copy of our Lease. When asked when we could start moving things in he answered right away. That’s good because we are expecting Snow Flurries early Friday morning. There was only One problem the larger Elevator that most use for moving will be out of service until next week but we can use the smaller ones to bring our things up to the Eighth Floor. It just means we’ll be making more trips

We brought the Chairs and Night Stands along with a few other things that fit in the car into the building. Then we moved them around near the Elevators before pushing the button. While Kathy held the Open Door Button I loaded the Elevator before we went up. On the Eighth Floor Kathy again had to hold the Open Door Button while I unloaded the Elevator. Once everything was in the Hall we hauled it all into our Apartment.
Good thing you don't see the Rain from up here.
It didn’t take long to make quick list of things we needed to pick up so from there we headed over to the nearby Home Hardware Store where we got everything but the Keys that only Locksmiths are licensed to make. So we headed over to Better Locksmith and in less then Five Minutes we were on our way with our Keys.
Our Living/Dining Room.
We then had to travel to the Devonshire Mall so we could go to the Cogeco Outlet. In an apartment the only way you get Internet or Television is by Cable or Satellite. We’ve had both before and much prefer the Cable. We were there a Half Hour but will have our system turned on by Friday.
Our Nightstands.
With it still raining but too early to stop for the day we again went to our Storage Unit and loaded more Containers and Boxes in the Car. When we left we just had enough space to sit with everything in the back.

It was already past 4:30 and we were getting hungry so we stopped at East-Side Mario’s to have supper. Kathy didn’t want Pizza so we both ordered Chicken Premavera. Since we’ve both been cutting back on what we eat after having our Soup the Pasta filled us up quickly. There are now Two Containers of Chicken Premavera in our apartment Fridge for lunch.

Even though the Car had a bigger load it took less time to empty because we were able to use Shopping Carts to haul it up to our apartment. It was after 6:00 when we headed to the Pioneer gas station to top up the Car before going Home back at Wildwood RV Park.

It wasn’t until we got Home that we realized there is something in the Storage Unit we need before we can safely move the Trailer. With more Rain forecasted for tomorrow we’ll see about winterizing the Trailer then moving it to the Storage Yard. By mid-afternoon the Rain is supposed to stop so we can move a few more things into the apartment. That means there will be no Blog for a couple of days as we get settled in. With Cold Temperatures but Clear Sunny Skies on Friday we’ll rent a Truck to get everything moved into our new abode. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
