When I wake up tomorrow I expect it to be raining. That would be wonderful. Work was ok today. Our state minimum wage is going up to $7.35 so I was calculating if I could survive on that. With my rent money and a part time minimum wage job I could definitely survive but I would have to live in this mobile home forever. I still haven't figured out what I am going to do about my long term housing situation. Maybe I should start digging a hobbit hole.
I should also have an emergency fund to last a year at least. That would take me 6 months to save up at my current job. Let's see, pay off mortgage in March, save six months more...that's September, then there is the car fund, the health savings account, travel fund, home improvements (a fence for the dogs), and the housing fund. Gee, I'm not going to be able to retire for another 10 years! I don't think I can make it that long.
