How I know the feeling! Welcome home, PF!

I'm cleaning up for the cleaning lady, who will hopefully come tomorrow.

Just think...I spent almost 4 days 147 miles closer to where you live...

One of the side effect of the toe mishap is that the calf leg on the bad toe leg and the thigh muscles in the other one are so sore. All because I am walking (what little there is) off balance. But the toe feels fine today.

I asked Shrek if he wanted to see what I put on his credit card for the trip...I used it for gas and meals, he shuddered and said shakily, "Yes".

I didn't know until this morning that the boss had put the room on her credit card. I put $87 on the card, I will be reimbursed for the meals ($58) and .50 cents a mile at 302 miles round trip. I'll be getting back more than I spent.

Hmmm...he still hasn't asked for his card back

You get more for the mileage than it costs in gas to cover wear and tear on the car.

I'm glad you're home safe, PF. I hope you get plenty of time to unwind before going back to work.

PF, the IRS mileage allowance for business travel is 56.5¢/mile. Since you are being reimbursed 50¢/mile you can claim the remainder on your taxes if you itemize.

Back to work this morning for a few hours and then the weekend. I don't plan on being there very long, just long enough to get the office organized after two of us being gone all week.
