I was going to write more about my future plans and budget but that will have to wait until later since I forgot to email myself the picture of my spreadsheet. Basically it came down to $710 per month minus $691 from the rent which left me $19 short per month. It wouldn't take long to save up enough to cover $19 a month. Then I made categories for the important stuff like medical, dental, travel, etc... Well, I should write about it tomorrow when I have my visual aid. If I'm not too tired. I was going to go to bed early tonight but it's after 10 already. Good night!

4 Days Until the Weekend
I made it through another Monday. The boss was there and was in a good mood so that was good. I didn't bring my little dog to work because I needed to stop by the grocery store on the way home so my office was quiet. I also spent some time today thinking about the future. I re-worked my budget and decided that I could get by on $710 with a few dogs. A "few dogs" means less than I have right now which is 9. I think 4 or 5 dogs would be ok. That would be my 2 plus 2 or 3 fosters. I am trying to resist getting any more until I get down to a lesser number. Still, it is hard to see them get put down at the pound, especially the ones that I would have gotten if I had room.

So your rental income nearly covers your monthly expenses? This means you can save nearly 100% of your (after-tax) wage income, right? If I recall what you once wrote about your wage income, you can save at least $2,000 per month now, pretty awesome. Each dog can get its own air-conditioned doghouse for that figure LOL!
dont forget you need to actually build a house (and kennels) at some point. You cant spend it all on dog chews
Dave, Yes! $2,000 a month for whatever I can dream up...after the emergency fund is nice and fat again. I have thought about an AC for a dog house-shed. I've even seen some dog houses on Craig's list with AC. My mobile home is pretty much a giant dog house so I'll just stick with trying to better insulate it for them.
Lizzie, I know, it is tempting to just buy fun stuff and not think about the big stuff because that means I would have to work a lot longer. On the other hand, I seem to be a lot more motivated when I have a specific goal in mind like a house and kennels.
