Some Good News

The property management company called today and said they have a tenant for my house. I hope it is for sure this time, not like last time when it was like, oops, they didn't qualify. I won't believe it until I see the first months rent.

I went by the house after work to take the sodas out of the fridge and make one last check for bugs and weeds. If they see a live bug in the first 30 days I have to pay for an exterminator so I have tried very hard but unfortunately bugs crawl up the drains here so I'm kind of expecting to have to pay.

That also means that I can't get any more water from the house. I should have enough until the rains and after that I will have the money for a water meter so that I can haul water from the local water company. I found out today that my neighbors are moving. They are the ones that were walking my dogs for me. I am sad that they are going. I wonder if they will be selling any of their water tanks or their water hauling trailer. I'll have to ask.

When I got home today I accidentally ran over one of my wire dog crates. The sun was in my eyes and I didn't see that the wind had blown it over. I tried to straighten it but the welded spots started to break. I think it is still usable just not very pretty any more. Darn. That was my best crate.

Well, hopefully I will see some rent money soon and then I can pay off this mortgage and start on making this property a great place to live.

You know, yesterday I was thinking to myself "I'm surprised no one has rented that cute, clean house yet." Congrats, hope the new tenants are gems.

Once Daizy gets that place rented, it will mark a big turning point for her, as it will accelerate her becoming debt-free, which is one big step towards becoming job-free (just like me!). :)

Lizzie, thanks and yes I hope that paying for a property management company will pay off in less headaches.!

I know Petunia. Every time I visited it I thought of what a waste it was sitting empty and was a little tempted to move in.

Dave, I don't see job-free in sight anymore. Not if I want to keep doing dog rescue. I still haven't figured out how to make it pay. Maybe I should try my hand at grant writing to bring in some money for my hobby otherwise I'll never be able to quit!
