I would say no calls, wait no, ummm jury duty, wait no, ummm the flu, wait no, crap I can't decide, lol.
I actually got like 20 calls today, people freaking out trying to get their carpets cleaned before thanksgiving, I almost forgot how it feels to be busy, almost 20 customers lined up from tomorrow to Saturday, I'm going to be so sore by Thursday night.
Sorry you had to hit the jackpot Matt, you should go to Vegas and try to win a real jackpot Razz

My daughter lives in N. LV. Don't really get a chance to go play the slot. I usually win a few 100 when I play.
She's expecting #2 grandson just b4 Christmas.

I would choose jury duty and no calls. At our age the flu can kill us.
It is time for a flu shot. Actually I never get one

It could be worse Matt you could have the flu and be busy as hell

I never get the flu shot either these days. My immune system is borderline over-active as it is and the flu shot makes me feel terrible for about a week. I rarely get sick and it doesn't last long when I do.

Even now, the fever lasted a day and it never really developed beyond a tight chest and headache for a few days instead of the misery most encounter. To me, taking a good probiotic daily is better than the flu shot since most of your immune system is located right there in the first place.

I do agree Mo, being busy as hell when ill is the worst because we all know that we will work anyway.

I'm almost over it. Just some "cleaning out sinus.. and coughing".
I typically get sick once a year. For a few days, then I'm good. Unfortunately, for those few days 'its bad'. BUT, not the flu. Only 2nd time getting that.
No selection yet for JD.
It's getting busy. Looks like 2 a day till turkey day. For this time of year, 2 a day is busy. Not much "cleaning b4 the holidays" in my neck of the woods.

That is super busy for around here. I will see a last minute spike probably next week, but it is pretty much dead now until March.

I had done 19 jobs this past week from Tuesday through Saturday, I’m pooped out, taking 1 Aleve every night to make sure my lower back doesn’t start acting out, and I’m working by myself, it really sucks but the good thing is I’m pocketing all of the $$ in my pocket.

Outstanding Dp, that is really kicking butt. I never see that kind of response for the holiday week....likely pick up a few yet, but not much more than that.
