Quick post before bed

Last night I went to a mystery shopping seminar, which I've never done before. It was really weird to meet other mystery shoppers.

I keep wanting to start the 30 day yoga challenge, but I keep forgetting about it. Lame!

Peanut and I started a dinner calendar, inspired by this post at the Simple Dollar. The great thing about this is that not only will it eliminate our daily 4:30 “What’s for dinner?” discussion (I mean, I hope we'll still chat but it won't be about that!) but it’s going to ultimately be a great meal tracker—we’ll know when was the last time we had fried rice or potato salad or whatever, and we’ll be able to look back and find meals that we haven’t made in a while.

Peanut is adding me as an authorized user to one of his credit cards (the one from the same bank where we have our joint account). The credit card provides ridiculously better reward points, so we’ll use the credit cards for most everything and pay it off every month from the joint account. This is also good for me since I only have one credit card in my name right now which is not as widely accepted as Visa or Mastercard, and Bargaineering just talked about credit card diversification.

My new boss starts tomorrow morning, so I need to be at work early. I'm not sure whether I'm nervous--it's sort of like starting a new job, after all.

  1. I love the joint CC (or rather, authorized user) to share expenses. The only snag we ran into was that I added him to my Discover -- not widely accepted.

    We don't even have a joint account, we just split the bill at the end of the month and write two checks for rent.
