Hey everyone! I've posted on this board a few times but so far have never really hung around as regular. I guess I am officially here now though, as I am a newlywed! We don't feel quite ready yet to try for children, for a number of reasons--just not mature enough, not ready to give up our freedom yet, but I have to say that the idea is crossing my mind more and more lately. Another big reason for us to wait is that I am a substitute teacher and have been waiting patiently for a job. Our fiancial situation isn't very stable until I have that permanent position, and even then I expect I will need to wait at least 2 years to get settled into my position enough to be able to take a maternity leave. We also bought a house that requires a lot of work and is definately nowhere near being ready for a child to be brought into it.
So, I have a preliminary interview for a teaching job on Friday the 11th...cross your fingers, please! If I get this job, it will mean that we can get going on fixing some of our financial woes, work on our house, and possibly start planning a time to TTC!
