Ok Ok I just cant help myself. I was feeling low today. (Had got some bad news) Made my whole morning just suck!!!! So I went on about my day and went to my interview. I run our trucking company but nothing is in MY name. I wanted to get a part time job to show I have money coming in as well because in the next year we plan on applying for a house. Anyways I got the job!!! Turned my day around. I felt so good I went home and found myself on the computer in front of a Walmart App. I was turned down about a year ago but I had the itch. I just had to and BAM!!! Approved for $600! Then out of nowhere this barclays NFL app was on my screen and hey I was high on life and again just had to do it as I was turned down by them last year as well. So guess what.......... BAM approved for $500. Yes I know they are not big limits but for someone that had a BK7 in 2009 and has slowly been rebuilding I feel very happy with what I got today. I feel that Barclays is a step up from Capital One. Walmart Im sorry they are just picky and by far not AMEX but thats as close as I am getting until my BK7 falls off years down the road. Now off to the garden and I am not coming out until I land me my dream home!!!!!!
