Can I count any of the mileage from my trip? I would've had to go to the store anyways I just waited until yesterday since I would be over that way for my appointment.

Awww you edited your response. The first one gave me a chuckle.

I went with counting the mileage, one way, from the grocery store to my house. But I have the store receipt and can always change to counting the full mileage later.
