Re: Garden Club Meeting - October 2012

Well, I'm still in the garden, but I'm edging toward leaving the garden to get a credit union credit card due to my ongoing unemployment. It hasn't come to it yet and I've been holding off on any apps because I want to get a mortgage next year, but I've been unemployed for three months now so I have to take every possibility into consideration. If it becomes necessary, I'd rather have to carry a balance on a high CL, low interest credit union credit card rather than my high interest rewards cards.
I'm still clutching my platinum spade right now, though, and I really don't want to have to lose it. :-(
I wish you the best in finding a job!!
Thanks! All those politicians who say that unemployed people are just lazy have no idea what they are talking about. I've been trying to find a job that will pay the bills for 3 months and I've had 7 interviews and no offers. The competition is so fierce, especially in my field (education), which has faced drastic layoffs over the past four years. I really want to be careful not to screw up my credit.
Please allow me to add my voice in support, as well. I hope that you find a job soon, and I hope that it's a good one. My best wishes to you.
