Does anybody else feel like they just keep wanting?
We have a rough timeline set out: 1 year we’ll be married, 4-5 years and we’ll get a house, 7 years we’ll start trying for children.
But I want to be married now! I want to buy a house now! I want to have babies soon!
We are young, we should wait for these things and logically I am fine with waiting but emotionally I want the dog, the house, and the two kids now. Is this just my biological clock? I feel greedy and terrible and pushy. Luckily FI has been putting up with me well.

I think your timeline sounds great 🙂 Just enjoy it, especially the 4-5 years in between being married and getting a house – sometimes the love is in the struggle – you appreciate the small things more when you don’t have as much. If you had it all now you would have nothing to look forward to. I think it’s normal to feel impatient but just keep telling yourself that these things WILL happen and be determined to enjoy everything in the mean time 🙂

@Spoonie: Thank you, I agree that if I had it all now I’d have less to look forward to. I will definitely enjoy what I have now, and am.

- Wedding: September 2008 - A tiny town just outside of Glacier National Park
I know what you mean. I was very impatient myself… it took us 2 years to get a house and as soon as we got a house I wanted babies and my husband was like AAA HOLD ON A MINUTE. We’ve been in the house for a year now and we’re finally getting around to talking about concieving again.
And guests at our wedding said we wouldn’t make it 6 months before we were pregnant…
