Don’t come for me but I’m surviving two straight weeks with a tablet and no limits on screen time. Mine is 4 and potty trained so that helps but it’s not easy. I’m definitely not super productive by any means but at least others on my team also have children at home!

I had two home for two weeks (ages 11 and 9). We had LOTS of screen time, so don’t feel bad at all!

Screen time and outdoor walks if there are calls you can take from your phone. Divvy up primary care times with your partner if possible or it will be you all day! I think I charged 12 hours the week mine was home 😬

My husbands mom lives with us and we usually get along fine, but today I am over it. WFH means being with her 24/7 and after the holiday's I am just done. I wish it was just the 2 of us again. Can I force his sister to take her? I want my house back, but I also don't want to be the crabby wife.

Still WFH? What are other chambers doing for task management? Our chambers has been keeping up with assignments, incoming emails needing judge’s eyes, and written orders, all through Microsoft Planner. We share PDFs through Sharepoint folders. Although we still email draft orders back and forth, the system seems to work well enough. We still aren’t operating at our previous capacity because it takes 10x the number of steps to get a motion heard or an order entered—90% of our workload.

So we are a remote-first company. We’re working on this new concept for a virtual Sales breakfast where the team can all get together first thing In the am to welcome our new hires. We wanted to send everyone a DoorDash gift card so that could order breakfast/coffee and we treat it kinda like a happy hour. The problem is that we have folks in the US AND Canada. Apparently, if you live in the US you can’t buy DoorDash gift cards for Canada. Does anyone suggestions for a workaround?

Just landed a full time gig, looking to get some furniture so I’m not working on my parents’ kitchen table during this remote period. Any recommendations for desks and chairs? I’m hoping to find something that’s easy to assemble and break down for when I need to move, and something that won’t cost an arm and a leg. I know everyone has a different kind of setup that works for them. I currently have a laptop, drawing pad, second monitor, and a desk riser.

Why oh why do "remote" positions for US employers require FTEs to physically live in the United States??? I want to know the real reason.

What rate would you expect from freelancing through temp agency? I’m trying to pick up some remote side work through a creative staffing agency I used to work with.

What rate would you expect when working through an intermediary agency, and for what type of work?
