This morning marks a huge milestone for me! The last negative item on my EX report finally fell off last night!! I woke up this morning to a BEAUTIFUL CLEAN EX report!!! Now, just waiting for it to fall off the other two. It was a paid CA from Assett Acceptance. Do not know if it bumped my FICO or not - but my USAA FAKO did not change. In any case, I was just excited that for the first time in over 10 years, I can finally say that I have a clean report again!!! And am going to do everything in my power to make sure it stays that way!! Thanks to all the help that I got reading this forum! You guys know what your talking about!!!

Woo Hoo and Congrats! I am in the same boat as you. Waiting for that last baddie to fall off at the end of the year. For years I avoided looking at my CR because it just depressed me. These days, I'm a tad bit addicted to looking at it. Can't wait to be like you with the beautiful clean report!

@irishpassion9702 - I know what you mean. I used to get depressed when I would look at my reports too and think that there was no hope - what was the point? But then, something changed for me mentally and I took it as a challenge. To see if I could do it. And your right - it does get addictive. I am on these forums everyday reading. And when you finally get that last item to drop? I literally jumped out of my chair and did a little happy dance. (and let me tell you - it wasn't pretty! ha) So be sure and post when your final one drops at the end of the year! That will definitely be cause for a happy new year!
