Can't Shake That Feeling...

Have you ever woken up and just have that feeling that something isn't right?  I don't know what it is, but I have that feeling today.  I really don't like this feeling, almost like a panic attack, but not quite full blown (I've had those before).  I hope it goes away....

It's probably due to the fact that I am nowhere near ready for my vacation, and that yesterday at work was HORRIBLE.  There was a 5-6 minute wait in the phone queue which meant, people were impatient, and it was no stop call after call after call.  It's stressful and demoralizing when it gets like that.  I described it as trying to dig yourself out of a sand pit, you can dig and dig and dig, but the sand keeps pouring back in and you get nowhere.
Thankfully I'm only on the phone full time on Sundays and military pay days (1st and 15th) or if it gets really busy, and knowing my luck, I will lose my Admin time and have to go on the phones today, throwing my whole coaching schedule out the window.  We'll see how it goes.

On a good note, my Equifax credit score is starting to move up or maybe I should say, creep up.  I have lowered my credit card utilization by 21% and all my credit score has to show for it is a 10pt increase.  So I started at 658 on 05/20 and today it is 668.  Not bad, but not where I want it to be.  I'm hoping that by the end of August, early September I will be at or over 700. 

I'll just keep plugging at it!

I hope you feel better.

I can only imagine some of the phone calls you get on those pay days. I do love Navy Federal, they/you are fantastic.

Congrats on some credit score progress.

Oh that is not a good feeling at all. And panic attacks are the worst!

I hope work is better this week. I always try to be nice to the person on the other end of the line since it's certainly not the reps fault for the wait.

Your credit score is on its way for sure! You are doing awesome with your debt pay down!

I know that feeling. I hope it goes away. Ugh. Try to stay positive and hopefully it'll pass soon!

Good job on your score. Progress is progress :)

I know those kind of days first hand. I'm sorry you had one of those cause they really suck.

Don't try to prepare too much for vacation. Just let it come. If you can kick back and relax a couple hours after work just do that. Listen to some of your favourite tunes and close your eyes.

Congrats on the credit score. Your getting closer to your goal.
