On the Metro North going into the city for work. Just realized that mostly everyone uses the seat next to them to place their bag and deny someone else seating next to or across from them. I get it! COVID is still out there, but isn’t that the risk you take every time you leave your house. And before you 100% WFH zealots come after me, I have personal and work meetings today and it makes it easier to work from the office.
Hi fam! Do you know where in the San Francisco area can parents flying in from india take a covid test for free? They have insurance but from india (travel health insurance)..

My husband and I have concert tickets to a big outdoor festival that was cancelled for covid and is now happening in late August. His brothers and some college friends are flying in to stay with us. We just found out we're pregnant and I'll be 9 weeks by concert time. We aren't ready to tell anyone but we can't think how we can ask them to cancel without explaining. We are all vaccinated and are in SF so cases are low, but not zero. Any advice?

So I've seen a number of articles floating around recently saying all Americans (not just the priority groups) could get the covid-19 vaccines by April. Thoughts on whether that is actually highly likely? I initially thought end of 2021 was more likely, but perhaps I should be more optimistic?
Baby sitting friend’s 5 year old and today she has 99 fever. She is going to see a friend on Saturday and told me she will get a COVID test before that. In her words, ‘I am going to get tested because if I have COVID I can pass it to my friend and the friend will meet so many people and she can pass into them and then all those people will meet other people and spread to them and then COVID will spread everywhere.’ I don’t know where little lady learnt it from but this was impressive.
What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
Tax savvy people, i have questions. my employer reduced everyones salary during the first 6 months of covid, but offered a “bonus” (aka back to normal rate) if you were required to travel during this time. How will the temporary salary cut + travel bonus affect my filing? Idk I’m feeling petty

New to single mom life and just recently started to (try) dating again.

Any advice, experience or 2c on the above is appreciated.
