I stopped by my rental house after work to bring the trash cans in and my house cleaner was working away and she had already brough the cans in, how nice. The house is looking good. The tile dust is slowly disappearing and the master bathroom is sparkling clean now. She is a really good house cleaner, I am glad I spent the money. Right now I need to be focusing on doing my own job better and worry less about my vacant rental. It will be taken care of soon. I need my job so that I have money for the rest of my plan, that is, the paying off the mortgage and building up my savings part of the plan.
I'm supposed to meet with someone on Sunday who wants to adopt my little foster dog. I sure hope they are a good home and that they take him. He is very sweet but it is time consuming to look after a little dog. I have taken him to work with me everyday because the bigger dogs aren't always nice and I don't trust my fence. But having a dog with me all the time means that I can't stop at the store on the way home. I actually did some shopping at the gas station mini-mart because it is kind of socially acceptable to leave your dog in the car for 5 minutes if it is parked at a gas pump. Otherwise there is no way I would leave my dog in the car. Someone would call the police. I wouldn't leave him in the crate in the truck bed either because he would cry and bark and I would be afraid someone would steal him. Anyway, having a dog with me all of the time kind of puts a kink in my flexibility. I'll be glad when the little guy finds a nice home where he has a person or persons to watch him.
Tomorrow I hope to sleep in and then the little dog and I will go to the rental house and cross off everything on my to-do list. It will be great to finally get it all done.
