DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
Thank you - this is *really* helpful information. Especially the part where you broke down your day re: research/writing/people time. I am a natural bureaucrat and have studied administrative agencies and lawmaking since grad. school, so I don't think red tape would get to me, and the thought of a pace more relaxed than tt sounds good, too.
It interests me that your dh gets to do some academic research and gets to go to conferences, does he do so as a fed. employee, or as an independent scholar?
4-10s is an ideal schedule for me (right now I work 4-7s, plus at night/weekends from home).
I think I'd enjoy a federal job, the work plus the astounding pay and benefits - I don't think we'd like DC primarily because of ds ... but I know some fed jobs are in other areas of the beltway and even other areas of the country. Since you wre so forthcoming with salary info (thank you!), I'd like to asK: on 170K a year, can you afford to buy in DC?
