Anyone else ever get a feeling of homesickness even when you’re at home? It’s this strange feeling like you’re being exposed and just want to hide. It’s a fleeting feeling that only last like 5-10 seconds. I’ve experienced it since I was a child and thought it was normal but now I’m wondering if it’s related to anxiety or something else.

Do you have 2nd, 3rd homes?

Yes! I've had those before in the form of body image issues. I don't get them anymore but it was this strange sensation of becoming aware of my midsection of all things and feeling horribly ashamed and wanting to run and hide from it. Knowing my battles with anxiety, I would say it's definitely an anxiety response, although I'm sure the trigger can be many different possibilities.

Hi ladies, I am an experienced, trustworthy, CFP®, actively looking to purchase a small to mid-size practice in the Chicagoland area. I am with LPL and part of a Hybrid RIA. I’m open to different acquisition options including partnership. I posted this on the succession page, but I am really interested in purchasing a woman-owned practice (being a woman myself and acquiring my mother’s practice in the 90’s). If anyone is interested or know anyone who is, please pass this along! Thank you.

Deloitte moms, I need your guidance. For some reason, someone (not sure which team) has marked my maternity leave (LOA) starting next week on DTE and I can’t update it to show PTO. I have repeatedly told the Leaves team and MetLife that I’m not starting LOA until the baby comes (due date 10/31, no baby yet). Whom do I contact to fix the DTE issue? If this happened to you, what did you do?

I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.
