Back to Reality

It's nice to be home.  On Monday I completed 8 mystery shops.  Instead of heading home I had a merchandising assignment lined up near the house.  It is for a brand new store that hasn't opened yet.  I had no idea how much I would need to do.  I ran out of time Monday and returned yesterday.  I did two other merchandising assignments and even had time to mow the lawn at the vacant townhouse.

I got a head start with the townhouse by having two friends help me out yesterday.  They took care of most of the cleaning and debris removal.  The tenant, who otherwise was a perfect tenant, left me with a mess to clean. My goal is to get this place rented by the end of the month.  I had to pull up the laminate floor due to water stains and will need to replace the carpet, so all the floors except the kitchen and upstairs bathroom need replacing.  I also need to re-paint the house and fix a few things.

Today I have a route of gas stations to shop or audit.  I also have a breakfast shop to do.  Finally, I am mowing my grandfather's lawn.  It's going to be a busy day.  Soon I will need to meet with my uncle, a real estate agent, about possibly selling my grandfather's house.  Originally I planned to rent it out but now I am having second thoughts.
