I took Stuart to see the Briarwood apartment today as it seems to be something we (me) are very interested in. I did take that video of the apartment but figured he had to see it with his own eyes. We actually saw two apartments in the building as coincidentally another similar unit came on the market just yesterday – so now we have to really think…

Most of today was about me gathering materials and submitting them to a mortgage broker that we use at work to see what we could be pre-approved for. No idea what they will come up with from us paupers!! Speaking of that – it just made me think about the lottery we played yesterday so must check that ticket!!

So we were asked to check our credit scores online today to give them a sense of what scores Stuart and I have. I’ve never actually checked my credit score before – everything turned out ok though as was waiting for something bad or random on there – glad I paid off my credit cards a few months ago!

BUT…

…I didn’t read the fine print on this website I was on and managed to get signed up for a monthly credit report membership instead of the advertised “free” check. I was rushing as had so much I was also doing at work at the same time and then as it was loading I briefly saw the $17.95 at the bottom in teeny weeny writing…and it was one of those “ah crap” moments 😦

I’m glad I saw that figure in my peripheral vision as wouldn’t have known. As after my free trial I would have been charged almost $18 a month to an account that would not be able to accomodate that!

So then I had to search for how to cancel this sudden membership – which of course could only be done via phone! And on the phone it took forever as she (the salesperson) of course wanted to sell me every possible option – long read out speeches, one after another, of options I could still have if a member. After the fourth courtesy listen I then kept interrupting  with “no thank you” every time she revved up for another speech.

Finally she said “I guess you have your mind made up to cancel everything”

YA THINK????!!!!!!

Sidenote: I wrote some notes about this blog on my blackberry, as I do every day along my day to remember things to 365 blog about later, and I ended up on the wrong subway train at the wrong stop! UGH!!

Lesson today then – don’t take things for granted. Don’t take things at face value!!
