Update-Road Trip

September 29th, 2015 at 04:10 am

Since my job isn't going well and my mom has been pretty sick up in Michigan, I have been picking up a lot of mystery shopping. I have done shops on my lunch hour, on my way home, and weekends. She has been in and out of the hospital for a month and is in ICU with congestive heart failure right now. My daughter and I have decided to drive up. We leave Sunday. I am glad we made the decision because my mom isn't improving.

My daughter is in SW Florida and I am in the panhandle so she has to drive nine hours up here to meet me. She will spend the night Saturday and we will take off early Sunday. I do have a week's vacation so at least I get paid. This time off will also give me time to think about a long term solution job wise.

I am using short term savings to pay for the extra gas. The trip should be cheap. We will stay at my parents and I picked up some food shops so we won't make much of a dent in my parent's grocery budget.

By time I return the money will start coming in for all of the mystery shopping I did this past month. I really want to beef up my savings and pay down my credit card. I can't wait to get back on track.I have felt so discombobulated most of this year.

    Thanks all. @livingalmostlarge I knew of the legitimate companies long ago through a friend. I recommend if you are interested checking out mysteryshopforum.com. There is an official list at the bottom list of the page (all legit).
