Another thing is that a really good friend of mine just became pregnant, and told me she is staying home with her child. I am so happy for her, her husband, and her unborn child. They will have to make quite a few sacrifices in order to do this, but of course, it’s worth it.
My obsession has gone so far that I have even visited the Deal or No Deal website to sign up to appear on the show. Collin and I were watching it last night, and talking about how even winning $10,000 would be worth going on the show. Unfortunately, you can’t just write in and sign up, you have to make a video tape of yourself, and of course, you have to be unique and entertaining.
We’re planning a budget since I’ve gotten a job, and we want to save a pretty large amount of money each month, that will help us when we decide to buy a house, but even then, we’ll have to worry about a mortgage! It’s never-ending!
Collin is thinking about changing banks, and if he does get hired, it will mean better pay, and eventually a better chance of promotion. I don’t know what our financial situation will be when we do decide to have children, but for right now, I’m going to try and make an effort to enjoy being married, not having children, and enjoy having the opportunity to travel while we can. It’ll be hard, but I’ll try.
