It's a new month and that means it is time to look at my finances. Another mortgage payment was paid bringing the total down by a couple hundred dollars. My savings went up by $1,000. That's not as much as it could have been because between truck repairs and vet bills I spent $1,100! Yikes. I still need shocks too but that will be done later.
Since I just spent over half of the money that I was going to use for the patio cover, I have put the project on hold. I have been looking in to the suggestion that Lizzie made to use a macerator and pump. I didn't know that was something that could be used for adding a bathroom without convenient drain access. It looks like it could work. The pump and toilet cost $1000 and then the sink and shower are just regular fixtures that tie in to the pump. I asked the handyman to come out and give us a quote for it. I wonder if he will come back out. Perhaps he thinks I will never actually make up my mind and go ahead with a project. He might be right. Maybe I should just move back to my mobile home and let my parents have the master bedroom.
Tomorrow is another chance to get dogs adopted. I am taking 2 dogs and my last puppy. I am very hopeful that she will find a good home this time. My landscaping is barely hanging on. One tree is dead for sure and the honeysuckle will still make it if she is gone tomorrow!
