Just Where is That Baseball Diamond?

July 3rd, 2018 at 05:09 am

Yesterday was tiring. We had a baseball game at 6pm at a location an hour away. Well, with rush hour traffic it was an hour and a half. Plus, Google Maps TWICE directed me to the wrong location. I can't figure out what went wrong, but had I not been able to text my son and get better directions, I never would have made it there. I was almost ready to just turn around and go home.

The game lasted a couple of hours, and I didn't get to bed until around midnight.

Before the game, I went to Sam's and bought paper towels and Command strips. I spent $29. I shouldn't have to buy paper towels again for quite a while. As for the Command strips -- I have quite a few wall hangings, and some of them keep coming down. I'm going to double up on the problem children. I don't dare use the traditional nail in the wall, as I have old plaster walls.

I was going to order the Command strips from Amazon, but got a pop-up saying that Sam's had a better deal. I hadn't even thought of them.

Today I have a mystery shop in another suburb -- a garden store. I have yet to read through the guidelines, but I know I have to pretend I'm going to make a walk, or build a fence, or something like that. The boys will be with me; I hope they won't blow my cover. I'm going to put them in charge of buying the $5 item for which I'll be reimbursed.

Tomorrow I get the day off -- a day of rest, whee! And on Thursday I will get to order a free pizza via mystery shopping.

Almost forgot -- I also spent $28 on gas at Sam's. Variables are now at 12%.

    Didn’t happen to be in LaGrange on Ogden ? Something very similar happened to DH taking a son to soccer. And I think that place had a ball park too.

    No, it was in Mundelein. Turned out the person who sent out the schedule didn't know the name of the park and made one up!

    I'm loving hearing about your mystery shops.

    Made the name up? Egad -- what a pain to try and find it.
