T.C.B.

Ahhh, the eternal phrase of The King (Elvis, who else?): Taking Care of Business. With things looking up on the professional end it has inspired me to meet things a little more head on and try to get some bills and other loose ends taken care of. Today, I called an online credit score agency and told them I wanted to end my membership and I SWEAR this woman (who I doubt was actually residing in the U.S.) would not end my membership. I said at least five times that I wanted her to end my commitment to the company (at $9.95 month) and she just wouldn't do it. I am about to hop on the phone again and try to lay down the law. It was a bit frustrating because I believe that there was a language barrier and the usual telemarketing B.S. Either way, these people have got to let me go. BTW, I found out that if you call 1-888-5-OPTOUT you will no longer receive those damn credit card offers in the mail. I went ahead and had my name taken off the lists that companies use to send out their annoying mail. Start dialing.

we're naming Avery's lil' Brother Elvis


not really ...just throwing the name out there so when we do have the right name, everyone will be relieved that we're not useing the name Elvis.
I just tell people that Avery and Elvis sound great together and I can see myself yelling those names across a playground and they look at me like I've lost my mind

haha. I think you should name your baby Elvis (or Aaron, Elvis' middle name?)

P.S. I called back and told the next lady I talked to that if they didn't terminate the membership immediately I would tell all of my friends that their company is crap. Problem solved.

Not to be a know-it-all but Elvis's middle name is spelled Aron. From one Elvis lover to another.
