I feel like a kid on their birthday!!!!!!

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!!!!!!

Re: I feel like a kid on their birthday!!!!!!

Thanks so much!!!!  Walmart was IIB so it is an extra boost with that one. I feel like Im back in the drivers seat and only I can control where I go.  Which is to the garden!!!! No stops along the way. Heck I feel like if I can do it anyone can.  I went from BOA 5K , Chase 3.5K  Walmart 2.5K A very nice car PRE BK7  down to NOTHING.  So to be where I am today  I am excited to the max.
