I was around a little while last fall but then I had to leave.. limited access to the internet, 2nd part time job (UGH, dont get me started on that), among other things... We decided to wait indefinitely. I started back to school a few weeks ago, but my plan is to take one class per quarter right now, so I can focus on that class and not get overwhelmed. I am hoping to go into the Nursing Program, but I have a few many core classes to take and finish so its gonna be a while. And Im okay with that cause least Im going forward and not staying still.

So, we are planning on trying late this summer, July or August. We thought about waiting till I was out of school, but then DS would be close to darn 10 years old and I didnt want them that far apart. So it seems like nows the time, as good as any I reckon.

The only thing we are actually "waiting" on is for me to get a full time job. I work part time in our small towns doctors office. My hubby runs the family Pawn and Gun business and bailbonds business.. but we dont make much money off it right now =( Sooo.. I need a full time job =)
The doctors office I work out now, there is probably going to be a nursing position available (fulltime) in August, and I am hoping the doctor wants me to fill in and be trained. (My mom has worked here for years, so we, fortunately, now them all very well!) So wish me luck on that =) Hoping I will know his decision fairly soon!

Sorry this was long, Id tell ya my life story =)

I can completely understand that. Its hard making a decision like that and trying to be 100% ready. If it would just happen then you would be happy to just deal with it and take that 9 months getting ready and preparing yourself.

Good luck and I hope he gets ready soon for you. I think letting him figure things out and get ready on his own will be good for him. Hopefully he will come around sooner than later ;) I think we are gonna have to wait a lil longer than July..like, jan or feb of 2011 =( Well see though!

Who knows, honestly. :-) Thanks for asking! I was hoping for this fall, still am, but I'm not counting on it at the moment. DH doesn't feel ready to set a date, he still doesn't think he's ready or that we can afford it (that much is true). W

e're trying to save money right now, and we'll see what happens. Meanwhile, he's getting closer to being ready on his own time - I think it's just a matter of time and maturity. He's definitely thinking about it and I think he's starting to get the baby bug, he's just nervous about handling the stress and responsibility.

Thanks Becki! I am excited about school, just trying to take my time. I dont want to get overwhelmed!

I remember last time I was here you were still having a time convincing DH to start TTC, How is that going? I see you are planning to TTC in the Fall? How exciting!
