Playing with budget projections
27 March – 20:45
It would be nice if I could tell the future, if I knew when travel restrictions were going to be lifted between here and the Philippines, Will we be allowed to go there later this summer, or will we have to wait until later in the year, or maybe even until next year? Who knows?
Today I considered how best to build enough flexibility into my budget over the next six months or so to enable us to move there by August, if travel restrictions are lifted, or to stay in Texas for several extra months if the Philippines remains closed.
And it would help if I knew what the economy was going to be like over the next few months, too. Knowing how much budget I'm going to have to work with would make planning a lot easier. So I try to develop primary plans, and back up plans, and be imaginative and realistic at the same time.
