WorkHaving a steady source of income definitely improves my outlook on things. This month, I've completed two hospitality jobs. If Amazon stays steady, I won't be working as many hospitality jobs as they pay less. We do have a job booked in Dallas for November and might have a job in Orlando depending on how much it pays.
I've been delivering for Amazon whenever I can. Amazon limits driver's hours to 8 per day and 40 per week. The last two weeks I've met my goal of working 40 hours at Amazon. I gross around $30/hour including tips before expenses.
I haven't been driving for Uber or Lyft much. When I have a gap in my Amazon schedule I sometimes turn the rideshare apps on. Yesterday I was off from Amazon between 4:30 pm-6:30 pm. I earned about $30 from rides in that time. I probably will drive on Halloween night since it is so busy. Our area has seasonal demand and things are picking up, so I might start driving more when I'm not at Amazon.
We are spending the night in Orlando at the end of the month. I bought tickets to the Sia concert and booked a room within walking distance of the Amway Center. Since I need to work as many hours as possible this month (property taxes will be due soon), there won't be time for much recreational travel.
I thought I would need to visit Birmingham to turn over the vacant condo, but I managed to place a tenant without making that trip. Since I now have a trustworthy handyman, I'm able to delegate any repairs that the new tenants need. I enjoy checking on my properties, plus Birmingham was home for 35 years. But a day there is a day I'm not working here in Florida.
