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.

Roller Coaster, Tyler Being Tested, Expenditures and Georgia Debate.

 Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

Kathy managed to sleep quite soundly last night falling asleep nearly as fast as her head hit the pillow. I was once again riding a roller coaster catching a few minutes sleep between the tossing and turning that filled my night. As mentioned often on this Blog one of the side effects of Sleep Apnea is Insomnia and you never know when it’s going to hit.

Within an Hour of going to bed last night my acrobatics were being put to the test. Two Hours of that left me more tired then when I lay down. The only alternative was to sit at the Computer in hopes that my eyes would begin to shut. Another Hour passed before I finally out of desperation relinquished letting nature help me and took an Extra Strength Tylenol. That’s something we both try to avoid is taking those kinds of medications but sometimes there’s no choice.

I managed to get an additional Two Hours Sleep before starting my day this morning. The bright spot in the living room was the glow from my Computer because there was no finding the Sun behind all the Clouds.

Even though we both get out of bed for fear of disturbing the other’s sleep we are actually still doing so. We sense the other’s absence and are between rest and sleep. When we talked at breakfast Kathy mentioned how she felt like she was on the verge of wakefulness throughout most of the night. What that really means is when we think we are disturbing the other’s sleep tossing and turning it’s actually sending the message we are still nearby.

We had Vegetable Soup for lunch along with a dessert plate that Kathy put together of Cookies, Chocolate Pudding Cups and an Apple that we shared.

We were just thinking of going to visit with our daughter Karen when she called. Our grandson Tyler is serving an Apprenticeship learning to be a Heating & Cooling Technician. He needs to learn Electrical, Plumbing and Sheet Metal. During this Pandemic that trade is considered an Essential Service that requires them to go into people’s homes. His Journeyman tested Positive for the Virus so Tyler was at the Screening Center getting tested. He’ll have Isolate in his room until he gets the results. Knowing we are in the vulnerable age group Karen advised us not to visit and will let us know Tyler’s test results.

Having been up overnight allowed me to finish my morning reading and chores much earlier then normal. It also gave me the incentive to get caught up on our Expenditure Spreadsheet. With the lack of activity I’ve been delinquent in my duties since the start of the Coronavirus Shutdown. Four Hours later I had made quite a dent in the pile of receipts but my eyes were starting to react to staring at the fine print. There is still more to do before the task is complete but it is encouraging to see it slowly disappearing. As the saying goes “If you want something done give it to the busy person” and it’s true.

Kathy managed to finish a book she was reading, checked things out on the Computer as well as making a Ham Spaghettini Cheese Casserole for supper. It’s been a long time since she has made one but it was delicious as always plus there’s more for lunch tomorrow. We topped that off with Carbonated Juice (Fake Wine) and for dessert we finished the last of the Date Squares.

Since that Juice we get is Carbonated the Bottles are stronger and will hold regular wine with no problem. We rinse the empty Bottles and give them to our granddaughter who working with an Uncle scald out the Bottles and reuse them for wine they are making. Otherwise we would have to Recycle the Bottles and they would still have to buy more. It’s a win win both ways.

The 6 o’clock Local News showed rising Coronavirus Case numbers across Canada and most of those are between the provinces of Quebec and Ontario. It also looks like we’ll be seeing some above normal temperatures in the low 40’s for a few days this week.

We watched the Georgia Senate Debate this evening. The Democratic Nominee was guarded in some of his responses but the Republican Incumbent kept repeating Rhetoric that had nothing to do with the questions being asked.

We watched a Hallmark Christmas Movie before calling it a night. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.

Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


How many hipsters does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

You wouldn’t know, it’s kind of an obscured number.


  1. If he tests positive, I would demand a second test to confirm it. So many of those tests have come back with false positives ... which is why the numbers are so high here. Apparently it picks up something in your system that may be just allergies or the flu. Good luck.

  2. Haha....can't imagine 4 hours with receipts..I would never have the patience! Interesting about the bottles and wine making..yum

  3. I have trouble reading receipts so I use a small flashlight. Works great. Dinner looked really good.

  4. Insomnia is something no one wants. Sorry to hear Tyler may have been exposed. Hope tests come back negative. I'll keep my fingers crossed. I'm an Excel spreadsheet guy too. I have kept my home and travel expenses monthly for years. Just keeps me in touch with where our money is going.

  5. I do not have the patience to log the receipts. I do save what may influence the taxes or need to be returned, but the mundane go straight to the recycle.

  6. That casserole looks delicious.
    Hope you guys stay safe up there. Here there are zero ICU beds available in the region.
    And I hope you both get some good sleep tonight!!
