Haven’t seen my bf in nine months due to Covid19, and he’s coming tomorrow to move in together for the next 6+ months. So excited - and nervous! Any tips for keeping the sanity and the spark? We’ll be in a 1-bedroom in NYC.

Make sure you both don’t expect to spend every non-working moment with just each other. My bf and I are also in a LDR and during covid we’ve done little 2 week trips where we got an Airbnb in a new location and just lived and worked out of there. The first time we spent ALL of our time together and stopped our hobbies and other good habits. The second time we kept all of that up, allowed time for alone time, FaceTiming friends, etc. and it made things way more sustainable. In fact, it made me so excited to move in with him in the future :)

Thanks all - super helpful ❤️

absolute initial steps with a nanny/sitter ? Do you have them sign a contract ? Include COVID language ? Set boundaries ? Since I’m working from home, my nannies/babysitters have already demonstrated unsavory behavior such as talking to me while I’m trying to work, having my kid watch TV, letting me know that they are entitled to a 2 week notice on the first day of a temp job, and indicating they are at poverty level and really need the job, and bad body odor. I also feel guilty for firing too.

My school district started back the second week of July. We are teaching in class. By the end of the first week, there were students going home sick. This was happening with all our school sites in the district. Numbers are going up everyday. I was told our student population needs to hit 15% of positive COVID cases before they will go back to distant learning. What is your district‘a policy?

Folks, why is this Boston Bowl so quiet (relatively speaking)? Is our community so small that we think there’s no anonymity to our posts?

I learn much from the conversations in other Bowls and think Boston wisdom would be good to read too.

Opinions wanted. Husband and I booked our upcoming honeymoon before COVID. All travel within the U.S., short 4hr flight. We take COVID seriously day to day and wear masks/social distance/etc, but we’re split on whether to go or not. I think if we get an AirBnB that has a kitchen/living space, we can do takeout. And if we keep to outdoor activities (e.g. walking tours), we’ll be respectful of others in the new city/we won’t put ourselves at great risk. But my husband wants to cancel. Thoughts?

I haven’t seen my partner in over a year due to covid and I know his family is going to want to do a family trip once restrictions are lifted to go visit him overseas.

I feel like that may make me look a tad bratty but I don’t want to spend time with his family all fighting for his attention.

Anyone else feel like Covid life in the last two years has made them more introverted? I used to enjoy work/networking events, going out, and seeing a lot of people.

My District decided to initiate a “no zero policy” starting now. I was informed by administration that when a student does not turn in their work, I still have to give the student a fifty percent even though that student didn’t earn it. I teach sixth graders and I am not sure how I feel about this. Any words of advice?
