Yelnad, back from a break...
Hi all. I joined the forum in 2004 and was active on and off until 2007. It looks like my most recent break began with the birth of our first child in September 2007. Our second was born in December 2009. I'm 35 and DH is 40. We have 1 dog.
I work as an advisor at a university and am currently very part time from home (~10 hours a week) while I'm home with the baby. I'll go back to my regular schedule in August (~30 hours a week since having kids). DH works in the mortgage industry.
I don't know that we'll ever achieve early retirement (especially since a 75% tuition reduction for my kids is one of my perks when I go back to work full time), but it is a dream and I've always enjoyed the community here and the things I've learned. I've sought you out again because I have a unique situation that I'd like to bounce off an anonymous audience. More on that later.
Nice to be back.
