Okay, not great. Need 700 to be a decent score.

IDK what our credit score is but I know it's bad. We owe like 20k in credit cards and haven't paid them in about 2 yrs. Our house payment is 4 months behind too.
Ours is horrible too. It was dropped by about 100 points thanks to basically a paperwork error and I was essentially told "oh, sorry, too bad, eventually it will drop off your credit." Yeah, in like seven years.

Morning!

I was trying to catch up on yesterday's thread some...

Lauren, don't beat yourself up too much, you are doing the best you can and sometimes circumstances beyond your control change things. If you really want to try and nurse your LO longer into your pregancy, then I agree with the others who mentioned talk to an LC who can give you ideas and suggestions to work on your supply. I had issues with supply when my twins were about 4-5 months old and had several appointments with an LC and got a lot of good information. My issues were related to trying to nurse two growing babies and being constantly exhausted, which does not help supply at all, but I am sure you ca nget some help. I know eating a lot of oatmeal...the real stuff not instant, and brewer's yeast were supply boosters that you can try while pg.

Heidi on your mom and sister. I used to get P/A attitude from my mom alot and she finally learned I would not pay attention to any of it and has backed down somewhat, though she does try and get to me by saying the crap to my older DDs sometimes. It sucks to deal with and I feel for you.

Amber, hope you are ok with whatever you were dealing with also.

All of the dinner/food talk makes me hungry and it is morning! We had baked spaghetti last night because the older 2 girls have a Cross Country race today and they tell me that always have to have a good protein/carb combo meal for dinner before a race, so I had to rearrange the week's meals to fix spag last night instead of Monday! Tonight there is a team picnic after the race so we will eat there, or everyone else will eat and I will chase the babies around!

Credit stuff really blows.....especially the stuff that isn't your fault and you still can't do a thing about it

And this site will give you your credit score for free. I've been using it for over a year now just to upkeep on DH's to get him a better one. He went from 560-640 in 6 months with the information we got from there And as far as I can tell.....they don't leave a trace on your credit report when accessing your scores. We applied for a few things (cards for DH, the house; twice because of DH's score, etc) and they've never left a trace.
It keeps telling me that it cant validate my info

Re: Knitters/Hookers/Spinners/Dyers ♦WIP♦ 9/15/2010

Just googled it and here is what a site says

You have seen the commercials and heard the radio jingles, so by now you know that having a good credit score is important. But what is a good credit score? Generally, anything above 700 is considered a good FICO credit score.

But that is not the end of the story. The reality is that a good credit score doesn’t guarantee a loan or mean that you are in good financial shape. A good credit score just gives the lender another piece of information to help determine your credit worthiness. Your ability to get a loan depends on many factors, including your credit report, your credit history, amount of available credit, credit utilization, and other factors

FICO credit sore ranges:
FICO credit score range: 300 – 850
Good credit score: above 700
Average credit score: 680 – 700 (depending on source)
Poor credit score: Below 620

Ha Stacey I'm glad you asked the wool and vegan question, I was wondering why you couldn't use wool if you were vegan too!


I used that site to check my credit score, thanks for the link!

And I've pretty much given up hope on going through the threads at night.....too much going on right now. We're still finishing the house, getting ready for a rummage sale this weekend, I'm knitting with deadlines, I have school, and family to take care of. I think I'm going

Morning. Spinning group this morning. Hopefully, dd gets enough school done to go. But if not, I'm still going. I usually just knit, although I'll spin a little on my drop spindle too. Maybe I'll get to try a wheel again--sometimes there's an extra.

Gotta go shower so I can get ready to go.
