So, Amber's post made me realize that I have only really shared about my losses and less about me.

I am Rachel. I have been happily married to my best friend for almost 5.5 years. I just graduated from University in Earth Science with a teaching certificate. I teach 8th grade science at a local middle school. My husband is getting his PhD in chemistry. We are nerds to the core.

We used Natural Family Planning as a source of birth control for several years before we started using it to TTC. In that time we had 2 surprise pregnancies. The first was right when we were learning in early 2007. The second one was 2 cycles before we were planning on TTC.

We have 2 fur babies; Jimmy and Dexter. (Named after the cartoons Jimmy Neutron and Dexter's Laboratory) Dexter is the oldest and he is 4.5. We rescued him from the shelter. Jimmy is 1.5 years old. We rescued him from a box in front of a grocery store. We love our little ones.

We just bought a house this past summer. We needed a 2 bedroom for a child and so we bought a duplex and my in-laws live in the other side. It is frustrating at times, but most of the time I don't even think about them being there because we don't ever see each other.

I just thought that I would introduce myself "better"

Are your furbabies cats or dogs?

That's cool that you teach. I hadn't realized. I started subbing this week.

It was good to learn more about you. I don't think I would enjoy living that close to MY in-laws.

Your furbabies are adorable. I have 3 cats.
