First I should update you all on how the weekend of N’s work parties went huh? The station closing down party was sad and weird at the same time. We said goodbye to many really great people and were also creeped out by others.
Channel 2 is officially off the air and now N is out covering some massive flood in the area, he is staying the night out in the middle of nowhere so he can go live for the phoenix news station after the Olympics tonight. Hopefully he will be home tomorrow but who knows… John McCain is apparently making an appearance out there so he may have to stay and cover that also.
Yesterday I was all excited about the possibility of doing some mystery shopping along the way to Indiana. Is that crazy of me? I personally think that any opportunity to make a little money is great, even if it is during our Arizona to Indiana road trip madness. I know I have the tendency to heap too much on myself but this could be fun you know.
So far we are signed up to visit a hardware store, a casino and a tanning salon. I am trying to find a restaurant an perhaps a coffee shop for us also, I figure those would be beneficial for us and also an easy money maker. Mystery shopping is great if you have an eye for detail and have some customer service experience (like I do).
In the past we have shopped places like ace hardware, buffalo wild wings and best buy. It’s kind of cool to be able to help improve customer service while getting paid to vist the places you probably already frequent. So that si something I am stoked about.
I am writing this as I relax between teaching sessions over at NAU today. I am working their summer band camp and am choreographing for them before I leave for Indiana, yeah I know we are moving in exactly 2 weeks.
Many have asked me why we aren’t just focusing on getting things in order for the move during these last 14 days… Well, N is working till the 26th anyway and we basically have most of the preparations for the move done already.
Plus, I am making us some moola for the move so it is all good right? That doesn’t mean I wont be 100% drained when this week is over though. Sigh, life is good.
Oh and guess who’s washer just shimmied across the floor as it’s gears were grinding to a pulp… Yep, you guessed it, it is ME! We are now without a washer in addition to having a leaking kitchen sink. Sweet huh?
