Came back home from a weekend trip today. Took the rural highway instead of interstate (same distance) and did two non-reveal gas stations and 7 recycling bales. All stops were fewer than 100 yards from the highway so there was no additional mileage or expense to the trip I would have taken anyway.

Day 2 of making 1 call per day to try to reach a loan officer to set an in-person appt. No luck so far.

I swore that I would not pass up a good oil change shop within 25 miles, so today is THE day. Oil change with lots of top-ups and system checks, plus fee that will come to $15 after the coupon. Two miles away from that, fuel/convenience store with very good food and fuel reimbursement plus small fee. That will cover a very tasty lunch plus fresh muffins to bring home to the freezer. I am happy, but then, I am easily amused.

ETA Rescheduling everything. Unless I am much mistaken I have food poisoning.

They actually aren't bad if batched together with lots of the same projects. You can spend all day doing them. Get into a groove.

Oh wales, that's horrible!!! Do you have any idea how it happened?? I've been there/done that....no fun. Not much you can do except wait it out. Hope you feel better soon.
wales, oh no! Ugh, that is the worst feeling. I hope you feel better soon. Gatorade helps.

That's great! Do you know what the culprit was?

I got food poisoning during a business trip in Boston. When I came home, I headed straight to the bathroom. When I was finally able to crawl into my bed, my cat came up to my face to cuddle me. He smelled my sick and galloped out of the room.

Mind you, this animal licks his arse on a regular basis.

Not sure of the source. I had a drive-thru burger for lunch and some of that "crab" that is made of various species of fish was included in my supper.
I am much better this morning and finally got some sleep last night.... about 9 hours worth of sleep !!

Today was Sonic. Tomorrow is a convenience store.

I knocked out some phone shops. Pretty easy, but super low pay. Key to these is volume! Do a bunch of the same kind!
Today I did an audit at a CPR (Cell Phone Repair), which was 95% pictures. It normally goes in my area for $15, but was slightly bonused to $18, so I took it. First one. Not bad, I enjoy audits, but it's SO picture heavy, that I don't think I would do another one for under $20.
Merch. Waiting for merch supplies for another gig. Those have been... somewhere... for a week. Their last known siting is only a few hours from here. I had to postpone the assignment indefinitely or until someone says to do the work without whatever the supplies were.

Today I will be doing the two shops that had to be rescheduled when I had food poisoning: oil change and convenience/fuel place. I plan to take the back roads each way to enjoy some non-Interstate scenery.

Just one bonused grocery shop.

ETA: Ended up picking up 2 quick FA gigs right on the way, so that was cool.

Finished merches. Another merch has a generous time frame and is due in about a week.

Today was a convenience store. I realized I was headed to the wrong location just before I got there. Luckily, the wrong location was on the way to the correct location.

The guidelines for this shop have a minimum purchase of $7 with a maximum reimbursement of $7. The MSC has been pretty accepting of purchases falling under $7. My purchase today was $6.98.

A curbside takeout of a used-to-be-no-fee casual-dine. Masks and gloves were worn by both parties. Food was reheated at home before consumption. Delicious, and we have leftovers.
I spent the last 2 days helping my youngest move into her new apt for senior year of college. It was lots of laughter, new good memories, and a ton of sweat in 100 plus degrees.
Today is a 5Guys delivery to work. I haven't shopped this location before, so I took it off the job board.
