Yesterday (Thanksgiving) my husband accused me of being a workaholic because I opted to spend 10 minutes doing some necessary work before the festivities. He said, "Its a holiday! Spend it with us!" He was wearing noise cancelling headphones, watching a football game on his phone as he said this. My 5 yr old was watching Bluey reruns on the TV and my 7 year old was killing bad guys on a computer game. I was bored! No one was talking to me! I enjoy my job. Does that make me a workaholic!?

Banks title difference - some banks have ED and D - which one is senior ? Jpmc got ED, & D. Citi has svp, director. What’s the total comp for these in tech or back office functions?
So, stupid question. At my biglaw firm we’ve taken paycuts and the partners have slowed their distributions. What does this actually mean? Management would not tell us if they were actually taking a pay cut. At the end of the year, if profits stay the same because of our paycuts, will they still make the same amount?

Seeking advice: I’m a 6th year litigation associate and I want to go in-house, but I’m afraid that my experience has shut down any real options. I have general commercial litigation experience and have been in product liability for a couple of years. I’m getting no call-backs, even for product companies. Any advice on how I can possibly land an in-house job?
Considering buying a three or four-plex and occupying one of the units myself. For anyone here that has lived in their own multi-family investment property, was this a turn off for prospective tenants? Any other problems I should anticipate?

Last night my 9yo said, “wow mom, Idina Menzel is 48 but she looks way younger than you!” (I am 38.) Then I put makeup on this morning and she said, “well, you look nice but you still look worn out...

My wife and I are both terrible housekeepers and our clutter is overwhelming us. We have two kids under 3 and a wonderful nanny but we need more help at home. How do we throw money at this problem? Where do we start to get ongoing professional help decluttering, organizing, cleaning, etc.? What has worked for you?
Dyslexia! After having our kindergartener son tested (privately) related to ADHD, we were told he may have dyslexia too (which would explain why he struggles so much with phonics but is amazing at sight words). He has a very high IQ. As a voracious reader, I am finding myself unexpectedly distraught that something that I have loved so much will be such a struggle for him, and worrying that it will affect his motivation and may steer him away from things he may otherwise love.
My marriage is struggling and we have to pack up the kids and fake it till we make it with my in laws for most of their Christmas break. I don't want a divorce but things are not good, and it's hard to pretend they are even in front of the kids. Looking for advice I guess, or just a kind word. Really don't want the in-laws finding out and trying to put their two cents in, and neither does she.

What are parents paying for baby sitters these days? Wife and I going out tonight for about 3-4 hours and have a local college student babysitting our toddler daughter tonight. Low-medium cost of living city and daughter will be asleep for most of the time. We’re thinking $15-20 per hour and make sure there are plenty of snacks around. Appropriate?
Recently had to disclose to an equity partner that juggling caseload with caring for a sick partner and resulting de facto solo parenting has been hard. Response was totally supportive but she did ask to alert managing partner, and I said OK. In line for a partner track promotion in next few months, did I make a mistake sharing this, like I can't be trusted to manage accounts on my own and now promotion, badly needed on one income, is in jeopardy?
My two young toddlers are home from daycare for the next 1.5 weeks for the holidays, and I have off work to watch them. It’s only been 2 days, and I’m so exhausted that I’m counting down the days until I go back to work and they are in daycare. Does anyone have any tips for enjoying this time? I love my kids so much, but how do SAHMs do this every day? I’m so drained already, and I have no patience left…
For parents with school-age kiddos (kindergarten up), what do you do for childcare? Thinking about giving up our nanny, but worried about juggling days off, sick days, and summer break.
