Hello everyone! I feel like an old veteran to iVillage. I had posted on here back when I was "dating a military man" (that was the name of the board), to "Not Quite Engaged" (to a man who is now my husband. No, not the military man!), then occasionally on "Waiting to Try". Funny the progression of it all
Now I am happily married, no children (yet), and unfortunately out of work. I felt like I needed the emotional support from ladies again that iVillage always seemed to give me.
I live in California near San Francisco with not a ton of local friends and no family. Most people I am very close to other than my husband are still in Tennessee. When we first moved here I was doing school, then while I did meet some friends at some retail jobs I had, I was unable to find anyone that lasted at my most recent job that just ended. I had been the office manager of a general contracting corportation for 2 years and it was quite a bad blow when it came to an end quite badly. (The company was "saving money" and cutting back and started treating anyone who had been there over a year like they were in the way and now most of us are no longer there) It was really sad.
Right now I am looking for my next venture and trying to stay optimistic. My husband and I are not going to try to have children for another year, so I would like to look for something until that time. I wonder sometimes if maybe I should just do some occasional temp jobs until next August when we would like to start trying? Any advice on that front will help
Well, anyway... that is a little about me and I hope to get to know you all soon!
