I don't think my husband is going to get the job. He called them and they said right now they are only reviewing applications of those that have experience which my husband doesn't. He went and got that license and after all that they probably aren't going to call him back He is so upset and so am I. I don't know what we are going to do now. That was a way for me to stay home with the kids because the money was so good. He doesn't make enough at his current job to allow me to stay home so looks like we will be paying $825/mo for daycare I am soooo sooo upset
Oh Sunshine noooo I'm so sorry. Didn't a friend put him up for this, didn't he know they'd only be looking at people with experience? It's hard when you find something you know will be perfect then it doesn't work out, we have been through that before. It's so disappointing, and really hard because you let yourself imagine how your life will be and get excited about it. It's so rubbish Could he carry on job-hunting anyway, is there anything else that pays similar?
Our friend got on without experience That's why we had our hopes up but he has military experience and they are really big on the military background so we are thinking that is what got his foot in the door. He says he was at the right place at the right time and they desperately needed people at that point because it was in January and it was really really cold in North Dakota and they kept losing people. You are exactly right, I kept imagining how it would be to be able to stay home with the kids and finally have a nice home. It is devastating and such an empty feeling because I know there is nothing I can do to change it. It just is what it is. This is our second attempt at a job in Texas and I feel like we will never be able to move He is going to explore other options but I sure hate to lose this one. The money was amazing
Aww Sunshine It is so crappy. Maybe there would've been a downside though, perhaps the high pay is compensation for very long hours and lots of stress. Just so harsh that it came so easily for your friend and you guys got your hopes up I really hope something else comes up...is he going to carry on searching for jobs in Texas?
Things are a bit stressy work-wise for us too! It's too long-winded to explain but basically DH's company are a bunch of fools who don't know what they're doing. He needs to start looking for something else but it is just him and one other guy running the business in this country (head office is in Europe) so he would feel bad leaving the other guy to deal with it all alone. But you have to do what's best for you I guess...
I have no idea what my body is doing at the mo... TMI - the amount of CM I'm getting is ridiculous. I never get this much! Maybe I am going to ov, but just super-super late. If I wasn't temping I'd be tempted to test because I've only had this much before when I've been pg! Hopefully it is a good sign for the future, maybe all this exercise is proving beneficial in more ways than one
I hope things work out with your husband's job. That sounds like a tough spot to be in, not wanting to leave the other guy by himself but wanting something different at the same time. My husband would have been away from home alot and that would make me sad so that was a huge downfall. The abundant CM sounds like a good sign to me. I always get that when I am pregnant too! Sometimes I get alot right before I ovulate also.
Hmm well I guess if he was away a lot with the work then you could practically feel like a single mum! It's not quite the same but when we first moved in together DH was working 70-80 hours a week which included weekends, and sometimes I just felt like why are we bothering?! We never see each other! It was no fun at all, imagine it would only feel worse if we'd had kids at that time too.
Well I was hoping for a temp rise as I can only really explain the CM as something to do with ovulation but that's not happened. It's just weird, and a bit annoying because I thought by now we'd be in the "safe" zone and not have to worry about dtd!
That does sound annoying. PCOS always made my cycles so unpredictable and I hated it. I would always jump for joy when my period started on time. My husband thought I was crazy. The weird thing is before I had my son my period were really crazy. They were all over the place. Then after I had my son my periods came every 30 days right on the dot. I thought for sure that meant I was fertile but after a progesterone check one month we determined that I was still not fertile. That's so strange to me but I was really glad my periods were finally normal.
Hey - back from a few days away for Easter Did you have a nice Easter holiday? We just went to visit my parents and saw friends, family etc. Was really nice and relaxing and even managed to be good and not eat too much chocolate
Hey that is weird - before I got pg the first time, my periods went from being kind-of predictable to absolutely crazy. I had a 130 day cycle for no reason, then just as I was getting my day 21 test results back, I found out I was actually pg. Things seem a little mad now so maybe it is a good sign So strange that you had regular periods but weren't fertile...were you just not ovulating then?
I think I did ov this weekend - FF says day 43. That is the latest I have ever, ever had. But hopefully my temps will stay up and I will get AF in the next couple of weeks.
How are things with you, how's the heat?? Is your son getting really excited to be a big brother?
Mmleo! Are you still around?? Hope you're doing ok x
