Snowflake In The Mail

March 19th, 2014 at 09:16 am

We were away for a few days visiting a college for my daughter, thus the lack of posts for the last few days. When we returned, there was a check in the mail. (Just imagined some angels singing for that one!) It was for a refund of some vitamins that were 'guaranteed to work or your money back'. They have worked a little, but thought we could still get some of the money back we have spent on them. The amount was $25. I think I actually spent less than that for one bottle. It must be the amount the give regardless of what you spent. I will get that check deposited and sent off to the mortgage.

My daughter wasn't feeling well yesterday when we returned so we skipped her flute lesson. Saved $20 for the time being. We hope to get with her accompanist soon to practice her flute solo. More money to shell out for that, so this savings can likely go to that cost.

My daughter got a free T-shirt on her college visit for filling out a survey. Of course, we did pay $10 each when we registered for the visit. Thus I'm sure those funds went towards our meals, parking and that T shirt! Smile

The trip also consisted of a few snacks along the way, fuel and one stop at Subway. It was fairly inexpensive, since my parents provided several meals and free lodging. Appreciate that!

That is the financial news of late. Have you received a free meal recently? Did you get any snowflakes in the mail?

    Yay for snowflakes! How did the visit go? Is the college still on your daughter's list?

    The visit went well. Of course, we have more questions now! It is still on the list. We aren't ruling anything out yet. We will visit at least two more colleges. They grouped her with other students to learn about the Honors program, since she has the stats to get in. I sure like the set up they have for that. I think my daughter thinks it is intimidating.

    Omgosh where has the time gone? Looking at colleges. I thought your girls were little!

    @Homebody My oldest is almost 17 (next week), and the youngest 13 1/2, in grades 11 and 8 respectively. We are early in the process of college visits. Since I have been blogging 6 years, that means my girls were in grade school when I started. Time does go fast!

    College hunting sounds like fun. Smile When I went, I knew which one I was going to in elementary school. Smile So, not too much hunting involved. Big Grin
