It seems like years since the people I was with and I have been able to relax. Probably because it has. My partner and I both job more than one works to try and pay for our home, student loans, and just life in general. They say that you should consistently have at least more than one month’s income in savings so that you are prepared for emergencies, but, the people I was with and I don’t ever have any leftover at the end of the month to put in savings. If fact, each Winter season when I turn on the heat, I hold my breath and pray that it still works. The last thing the people I was with and I need to have a sizable repair bill. This is just the way our lives have gone, up until now. I say that because the people I was with and I recently came into an unexpected windfall that has changed our lives for the better. It seemed like something out of the films when the people I was with and I got the letter from an attorney last week. It was informing us that the people I was with and I had inherited money from a relative that neither of us ever knew. They had been genuinely reclusive and consistently kept to themselves. My mom said that her aunt had never genuinely attended any family functions however had married a genuinely wealthy man years ago. She had no children of her own so left her money to her nieces and nephews. It isn’t enough to make us overly comfortable, but, it is enough to allow us to update our Heating and A/C plan so that the people I was with and I don’t have to worry about it working or not. The two of us decided that this was the best way to use the money however kept enough for us to go away for a weekend and relax too.
