Unexpected Scholarship Windfall
So, this Monday I woke up to a very good email from my university- “Your refund has been processed.” When I read the email, half asleep and super groggy, I thought I was reading something incorrectly. I thought maybe it says payment has been processed? I know I owed the library $2 of late fees. So I opened up the email and bam!
“This is an automated message to inform you that your refund has been processed. Please note that it may take up to 5 business days for the funds to be deposited into your bank account. Details of your refund are listed below.”
I got a $1,000! Apparently, one of my scholarships had not reimbursed all my money. I am usually on top of this, but I did not know this scholarship was worth an extra grand! This means I am not so worried about spending money on our vacation next week, since I have extra money on the budget.
My husband also spoke with his parents, and they are allowing us to stay at their house over the summer while we get our grown up lives together.
On another note, I have been googly staring at Mini Coopers on the internet. On my run yesterday, I saw a sage green mini cooper! It was so cute….I want one. I found a 2002 Mini Cooper on Craiglist for $9450. It has 88K miles. I want it!!! Since my budget is $10K, I would have to buy a used one. But sensible me says the car is really expensive to maintain. Argh…cuteness!
What do you think?
