I have today off work, but I'm not really taking the day off. I have a bunch to get done with my side job, so I'm just going to spend most of the day in my office, doing that. I didn't even tell DH I have the day off, LOL. Not that we would have planned to do anything, but he'd just probably interrupt me more (and then I'd get annoyed, haha).
In between working (at a more relaxed pace today) I'm really going to work on MTurks and see if I can have a really good day. I'm at $8 so far today. I did manage to earn approximately $70 last week, so I did make my daily goal.
DH and I decided to treat ourselves to dinner out last night - figured we deserved it for putting up with each other for 35 years :) Usually I order the grilled salmon, but I decided to try the special of teriyaki peppercorn steak. It was good, but a bit too "peppery" for me, so I just cut off the edges a bit.
I use a Paypal credit card, to earn 2% cash back on purchases. I highlight the items in my bi-monthly budget that go on the card and then on payday, make a payment in that amount that I will be charging for that pay period. I earn about $30/mo in cash back from it. For some reason I got a new card in the mail the other day. My current one doesn't expire until 2021. I have no idea why a new card was issued and was at first annoyed, because now I'm going to have to change all my auto pays...but it's the same card #, just a different 3-digit # on the back. At least I don't have to change all my auto pays and places I have this card set up as a payment option (like Amazon).
Earlier this month I received $10 Kohls Rewards. I looked for a free shipping code but no luck and really didn't have anything in mind to buy anyway. Then yesterday, while doing laundry, DH mentioned we could use some new towels. He actually likes using the old, thin, worn out towels, LOL, but even those are now getting too bad for him. I have some fairly new/good towels that only I use, that are still in really good shape. He said order some new ones and he'll start using mine as "his" towels. I decided this would probably be something good to put the Kohl's $10 towards, plus I have a 30% off coupon and I was really happy to now find a free shipping code. I decided to get 4, of a different color than the ones I currently, use, so we wouldn't get them mixed up. I got 4 towels, reg. $14 each for $3.84 each plus I earned 10% cash back from Rakuten/Ebates.
I just talked to my mom this morning. She was getting ready to go on the shuttle bus trip to a nearby grocery store. Her first time. So, good for her. I didn't call her yesterday. I had talked to her Saturday evening and didn't really have much to call about Sunday morning. I took a little nap yesterday afternoon and then we went out to dinner. I figured she was good until this morning. And she was. And she probably wouldn't specifically remember if I called yesterday or not. I think that is like only the 3rd time I have not called her every day. It was cute talking to her today, she was saying how she really thinks she'll like living close to me and I said yes, we can see each other so much more often and she said "and talk on the phone more often". LOL. Apparently every day doesn't cut it. HAHA!
