But anyway, back to my unexpected riches. I now have $1,000 for my emergency fund. That isn't the most fun thing in the world but with 2 houses and an RV and a bunch of stuff still out in my crumbling mobile home, I am sure something is going to need to be fixed sooner or later. And if nothing needs to be fixed, maybe I can save up $6k by next year and get air conditioning for this house. I'm pretty sure I won't be able to save that much before July of this year. July is when it gets humid and the swamp cooler doesn't work anymore. We are just going to have to tough it out with window AC units and hopefully those 6-8 weeks of humid time won't be too bad.
For now am just happy seeing my account with a little padding since I used most of my money to buy this house and put in the new furnace.
