I had an interview with a temp agency this morning. I wish everyone interviewed like a temp agency - just testing skills instead of asking weird questions. I'm looking forward to getting out of the house but at the same time I'm not looking forward to having an inflexible schedule. I guess we'll see what happens. I did have to laugh because the position she mentioned is covering some one's maternity leave - obviously, I'm not letting them know I'm prego.
We're basically trying to get some extra money for baby stuff. We're financially set for me to stay home when baby arrives but we don't have a lot of savings sitting around to purchase cribs and whatnot. And even though we plan on a baby sleeping in a bassinet in our room for the first little while, I'm already obsessed with the nursery.
Of course, our crazy tax situation plays a part since I'm trying to cap the money I make to still be claimed as a dependent. Oh, lordie, lordie. There's also the factor of possibly moving back to Mass. Since we're considered married there, I don't think Mary could claim me as a dependent anyways.
The possible move to Mass has sort of thrown a wrench in things. After all, if we have the baby in Mass we're both able to be on the birth certificate. We'd still have to do a second parent adoption to secure things but right off the bat we'd be on a birth certificate. Then god forbid something happen to me before a second parent adoption was finalized, Mary would have some rights or at least be able to prove that she's a parent to the child. Oh, being gay and having children is complicated.
It's also unlikely that we'd be able to move to Mass. before we have the baby or it would be a few weeks before which would be a lot of fun to find an OB/midwife. O.K., I don't even want to think about this - I think my brain is going to implode.
So I'll be happy to know if we're moving - either way. Though I'll probably be slightly depressed if we're not.
