Re: Garden Club Meeting - November 2012

Hi all. I'm sorry to say, I caved today. Only 48 hours after joining the GC, I scratched the itch. I went shopping with the kids, and applied at the register at Victoria's Secret. Of course, with all the recent inquiries, it was a no go. I feel really crappy right now...

Starting Scores: (4/16/12 lender pull) TU 596 | EX 550 | EQ 576
Current Score (9/3/15): Wally TU 639 | Amex EX 628 | DCU EQ 639
Goals: Homeowner as of 9/27/2013. Last app 8/1/15. TU-5; EX-16; EQ-13. Aiming for ZERO inqs.

Don't feel too badly. Look at it this way -- with only two days in, you're simply joining two days later than originally planned. So, pick up your gloves and watering can and start over again; all will be well. Smiley Happy

Thank you, tinuviel. I actually talked to my sister about my situation, and she really put me down (in a loving way. lol!). But I think that helps. So here I go again. No apps til 2014. I'm having a hard time with my signature... Smiley Frustrated

Re: Garden Club Meeting - November 2012

It's been two weeks since I entered the garden and every day gets easier for me.  It also helps to get soft pull credit increases LOL and live vicariously threw others who apply and are approved!  I've already seen an increase in my scores, and that is very motivating!!

Re: Garden Club Meeting - November 2012

Still app free.  I haven't even considered apping for anything recently.  I've been pre-occupying myself with prepping for my first 5k foot race, as well as changing up my diet to have much more healthy eating habits.  It isn't easy, but it keeps me away from the app button!  I've also been using the Rosetta Stone software in an attempt to learn Spanish a bit better.
