Yesterday the textbook buyer came to visit me. This guy buys all the books that publishing companies send to the professors (that the profs don't want, and didn't ask for). He buys them, and pays me! Yes me! So I left work with some cash in my pocket!
After visiting the closest Bank of America ATM (because you can deposit cash in there) I made my way to Target. Half an hour later I was driving home with a new glass carafe, scrubby sponges, microwave popcorn, salad and the makings of Sangria.
Why? Because I decided to celebrate. I made my favorite meal (mac 'n' cheese with taco meat mixed in), threw together the salad and mixed me some Sangria. (The carafe is to pre-mix the wine and pomegranate/cranberry juice).
We watched Sunday night's Downton Abbey during dinner. I managed not to yell at the TV. After dinner I sat down and did the Spousal Equivalent's taxes. After those were filed, we popped some popcorn and watched RuPaul's Drag Race.
All in all, a WONDERFUL night. Even the dog was well behaved!
