Kind of, but my rent is ridic because of the payment system here. Since the housekeepers live on-site (and there are only 4 of us), the residents pay us directly instead of us getting paychecks from the community. But then to make up for that, our rent is a lot higher than it should be because it's rent + utilities + their cut. Really complicated system that takes some getting used to because at first it seems horribly unfair to be paying this much for half of a townhouse.
A whole room? Seems extreme, but I'll probably do the same for my dogs when they die. I love seeing other people's houses. My mom lives at the end of a high-class neighborhood, as I drive through I'm always trying to sneak a peak into open windows. I'm guessing you make bank since you're working in a nice neighborhood?
My hours are usually 7 to 3, and the houses are...the same, really. There are maybe 4 or 5 models that people chose from when they were building this community and they're all pretty nice, but the real fun is in seeing how they're all furnished and decorated. There's this one couple that turned their guest bedroom into a shrine for old Elvis memorabilia.
What a coincidence, I'm off today as well. Tracking snow into peoples' houses when I'm supposed to clean them is extremely counterproductive (and I've worked 7 straight days so yesterday and today are my breaks).
Exciting! ):D That's my determined face. Flay is the bomb, if he told me to jump off a cliff while making a sandwich I'd do it. I've never made my own dough before, now's a good time to try I guess. It's cool that you've flavored it! I'd've never thought to do that. I'm gonna go nuts with basil. Maybe rosemary.
Hey! Currently I'm in the middle of waiting for pizza dough to rise, and that recipe is really simple and flexible. You can do pretty much anything you want with it. I'm using this recipe, although I added some oregano, parsley, and a little bit of garlic into it. It helps to have a lot more flour on hand because every time I've made this it's come out extremely sticky and difficult to work with.
