A little something on the side

I got a phone call out of the blue today from a woman who is looking for someone to cook meals for her elderly friend that lives nearby.  

Two years ago (almost exactly!) I started a small, short-lived personal chef job for another elderly woman.  It was at a time when I really needed some extra money for student loans and it fit perfectly with my schedule.  A few months later when my schedule became more demanding, her son came back home and they stopped my services- perfect!

And now, when I'm wishing for a little more money for extra yoga classes and miscellaneous expenses that aren't in my budget, I get this call.  I'm working on my pricing right now and will probably know tomorrow if she agrees to my proposal.  She's a-okay with only vegan cooking and it sounds like a pretty good arrangement.  Hopefully everything works out and her friend likes my cooking!
