I had some leftover tub chocolate chip cookie dough in the fridge, so decided to try out my new toaster oven and use up the cookie dough (and get that big tub out of my tiny fridge!). I didn't have a cookie sheet and had to use the broiler pan that comes with the oven. It seemed to cook them very fast and more on the outside than inside. But, maybe it's because of the broiler pan, I don't know. I tried it with the convection oven on, which was quicker. I tried it just "oven" and switched the tray position. They weren't the best, but everyone working out on the house scarfed them down and didn't say no to the second batch :)
DH has been video and picture taking this whole build process. He uses
his cell phone, his ipad, my ipad, his drone, LOL. He likes to set up
the ipad's on time lapse while they are working. When the electricians
got to working on Monday and we were doing our walk thru with 2 of them,
DH told them he does this. I laughed and said "can you dance?" (because
the concrete kid had done his funny dance for the video). Last night
DH was uploading his stuff to his computer and watching some of the time
lapse from yesterday. One of the electrician guys was up in the bonus
room, working by himself (and they had radio going). It's of course in
speed up mode, because of the time lapse, but you see him working,
moving from can light to can light and then really quickly he's in the
middle of the room doing a dance! LOL Love it! DH said he will be able
to slow the video down some, when he puts it in his movie maker program,
so then we'll be able to see his dance moves better. So cute.
I'm getting my ebates cash back balance built up. It's now up to $24.12. I just wish they paid more than once a quarter. I have to wait until February for the next payment. I think, overall, it has paid more than shopping through Swagbucks.
My company is paying out the second half of this years bonus's. It is kind of a weird end to our year, sales wise, since we dropped our huge manufacturer last month and started with a different, smaller one. So, while we did not make our gross sales goal, we did increase our profit margin over last year, so they are calling it a win. Plus, it really wasn't fair to everyone to base the year's sales quota to include the big mfg and then to decide to drop them. Anyway, I should be seeing my check in the next few days.
It doesn't sound like FIL is doing to well at home, which is what everyone was afraid of. SIL told DH last night he was filling out DNR paperwork. I don't blame him. My dad had that filled out too. He did not want to be kept alive by machines. I'm sure he's just going to end up back in the hospital soon and SIL will be dealing with where to put MIL all over again.
