On average, I get about one credit card offer per week via the U.S. Postal Service. All pre-approved, just waiting for me to send back some paperwork or if I can't wait to get out there and start spending, I can all their toll-free number right now.
Well, Friday, I officially moved up in the world.
I got not only my weekly credit card offer, but also the news that I have been preapproved for a mortgage! I tell you, the thought that I could compile even more staggering debt was one that brought a tear to my eye. I'm pre-approved! Me, just me! Surely they wouldn't just send such a letter out to JUST anyway. I am special. I am approved. I can now have even more debt was possible before. Is this a great country we live in or what?!?
It was also ironic in light of the fact that I attended an award's banquet Saturday night for realtors in the Nashville area. I am sure many of them sensed my preapproval status and were running down listings in my price range...
