Discover is practically breaking down my door for me with their applications... I keep telling myself..

Also, stay away from the wine and beer! No excuses ladies and gentlemen! Smiley Tongue

Re: Garden Club Meeting - October 2012

I had a relapse and went drapping last night, darn you Makers Mark! I was approved for an NY Giants card offered by Barklays. If not anything I got my foot in the door there. I'm hoping it was a soft pull. I guess I'll wait till Monday or Tuesday to find out. So far I have Walmart, Amazon, Macy's and now the NY Giants card in my little garden. Already used Walmart and Amazon for small purchases and plan to PIF this week. Got to swear off the computer and the Makers Mark for a while.

Re: Garden Club Meeting - October 2012

Man i've been screwing up lately. I have to get back in here and stay grounded.

 

I took enough cream from the box to last for awhile, so my goal is 6 months. I dont need anything else but 6 month invervals is a good goal. Smiley Happy

Thanks tinuviel! It feels nice to get great rates for a change! I have never been approved for the best auto rates due to the unfortunate mishap with the.vehicle I was cosigner on of my ex husbands. Before that my age and lack of history kept me from getting the best rates. It feels nice to finally be in prime rate territory Smiley Happy This will be my first "new" car and it feels great! Volvo is going to fly us to Sweden to take overseas delivery and tour the factory. We may be taking advantage of a 3 nights in London or Stockholm add on... but that hasn't been agreed to by my husband yet Smiley Wink we could add on 3 nights in London which includes airfare for about 1200.

Wow!!! I've never had a new car buying experience quite like that! Good for you!!! I understand how you feel about crossing the threshhold from poor/mediocre credit to good/excellent credit. It feels wonderful to be extended credit with favorable terms. You've worked to achieve it, so you deserve it. I'm truly happy for you. Smiley Happy
