I remembered in thinking about my ridiculous non-baby related rant that we used to have a spot for things like that!

How about a Mommy check in?

So while i am excited about the new job i am also bummed. DH and i had planned on ttc sometime starting in Aug or later. Well 1. We won't even be together and 2. I dont think its fair for me to take a new job and get prego so fast. So now its looking like May of next year assuming DH has a job by then. Making Simon well over three by the time a lil brother or sister comes along. I know thats not a bad gap and will give me time to lose the stress weight but i am having major baby wants. So it makes me sad that we have to push it back.

Ruby, that is a lot of stress and a tough decision, but it sounds like you've made the right choice - you'll have a job and be able to get out of the house at least. But definitely file the grievance eventually... what they did was just wrong. The academia job opportunity sounds promising! WOW that's really really $$ good for a professor position - I'm looking to make $40K (if I'm lucky) and that's with a PhD. :( I sometimes hate academia!!! Good luck, I hope you get it!

Ruby, I can't believe you could get $60k a year teaching!!! It sounds like an awesome opportunity!!! I really hope you get that!! I think here academia salaries are more like Ella said, around 40k. By the way Ella, what exactly is your job? (just curious)
