I didn't get a chance to add my door to my new wall this weekend. It was one of those projects that wasn't as simple as it sounded. I ran out of room to work so I started moving things around. The corner where the fireplace used to be still had all of the bricks around it so I carted them outside while the dogs ran around. I took 2 bricks out and counted 3 dogs to make sure none had escaped, then went back for 2 more bricks, and on and on. Then vacuumed all the dirt and rearranged my stuff so I had an open area.
Only one more weekend to work on my wall before I go off to visit family for Christmas. I was finally able to get a hold of the rescue dog lady and she said that I can take my dogs to a kennel across town for a reduced rate. That's a relief because the price at the kennel near me is $16 per day. I was hoping for $10. If I ever get a real house with a yard I think baby sitting animals would be a good part time job. Maybe if I'm a snowbird I can pet sit half of the year and spend the other half travelling. But that's a long way off. I certainly don't have any extra room for animals right now.
