For the past month our house has been in a constant state of quarantine (kids under five) and now stomach flu has hit. My hours suck and I’m exhausted. I truly enjoy my job but life keeps getting in the way! I’ll be lucky if I hit 120 hours this month…can I take a vacation?

I have no advice but I’m sorry you’re going through that. I’m even surprised you’ve managed to hit anywhere close to 120 hours with what’s happening in your house. You’re doing a good job, mama, just keep going.

Please don’t feel guilty for actually shifting your priorities when they need to be shifted. It’s only January. There is plenty of year left to make up for a lower billing month. Sending healthy vibes your way 💜

Are you in biglaw? It’s fine. I’ve had 20 hour months and 300 hour months. You’ll have plenty of time to make it up during the year. Take a break.
