Last night was book club. Yesterday afternoon I made my 4 cheese and bacon mac and cheese to take. My kitchen was a disaster, but I didn't have time to unload my dishwasher and then get all the dirty dishes inside it before I left. Then I didn't get home until 9pm and didn't feel like cleaning, so it sat a mess all night. It's clean now! The meeting was held at my property neighbors place and I offered a ride from town to anyone in our email group. One lady did take me up on it. She just had cataract surgery on one eye a week ago and wasn't so sure about driving home at night, so she was glad for the ride. It was also a nice drive to spend a little time talking and getting to know each other better.
This was the first meeting (even though I missed last month and we didn't have any all summer) that I felt more like I fit in and knew people better. There were 10 there last night and I've got all the names down. There was also a new lady who seemed nice, too. Everyone thought the book (All the Things We Keep) was just an ok book. Nothing great, a bit contrived in the plot. All the food was delicious and we have the perfect variety for dinner foods. Some chicken breasts, mac & cheese, salad, stuffed mushrooms, veggie tray, homemade sourdough rolls.
I have made a total of $88 through M-Turk so far and was able to transfer $50 today. I made $10 yesterday, which I'm glad of, as I haven't had any time to do any today. It's my half work day Friday and then we are heading into the city soon to do our 2 week shopping. And over $7 from yesterday and a few $ from previous days still need to credit to my account.
DH was talking to his buddy again recently. Poor guy. I really feel bad for his marriage situation. I think I mentioned before how they totally split up their bills and have separate accounts (yet she has access to his checking but he does not to hers!). Well, property taxes in his area went up significantly and with his escrow adjusting to catch up on the shortfall from last year and going forward, his house payment went up $200 a month. He pays the house payment and told her he can't afford that much (he makes less than her) and she doesn't want to use any of her money towards their house payment! I really do not get their deal at all.
