Skipped A Day

I usually don't skip a day without a post but when I tried to log in yesterday it said was down for maintenance. Since I was really tired and had no idea when it would be up again I decided to just go to bed.

It was a long, hard day. Work was exceptionally frustrating and I actually emailed my boss and told him I wanted to quit. He emailed back and said that I shouldn't so I stayed. While I was thinking of quitting I also looked at my budget and compared it to my incoming rent and decided that I would be around $180 a month short if I wanted to keep doing this dog fostering. Too bad. I was looking forward to having lots of free time. But free time with no money is no fun either.

I finally asked my property management company if my house was really rented. They said yes but the people aren't moving in until May 17th. That means I will only get a 1/2 month rent on the 25th which happens to be my next payday. So, I am waiting and waiting again. The 25th is only 12 days away. That isn't long at all.

Nice to feel so close to sniffing freedom. Are there jobs at the dog rescue place or is it all voluntary?

Don't fret, Daizy. Just a few days after you get the rent+paycheck day, you will get a 3-day weekend! Still, good to know you have that second income stream starting. And you will get a full month's rent just a few days after that.

Lizzie, I wish there were paying jobs in dog rescue. The most I can hope for is some free dog food.

Dave, yes that 3 day weekend is looking so good. I don't know which I am looking forward to more, rent or the day off.
