Yeah, you should have enough time, but it’s supposed to rain in DC tomorrow

Pro tip: I always try to get a left side window seat flying into DCA and right side window flying out. As long as the wind holds you’ll get a great view of the Washington Monument and Mall from either takeoff or landing

Yes, though that’s a hell of a walk in this heat. I’d take yellow to l’enfant from DCA, then walk to Lincoln, then go get food, then Uber back to DCA.

If you wanted to swing by the WH on the way from l’enfant to Lincoln, that makes sense. Just wouldn’t walk all the way to the Capitol. You’ll be able to see it.

I used to live in the area and would run the mall. For reference, a loop from the WH to Lincoln, around Washington monument and back is approx 5K.

Yes!! You’re close to a lot of sites. I’d take a cab to save time

^ Good call, I’ll change to the left side on the inbound. Thanks again!

How can I set the stage this year to negotiate a lower billable hours expectation instead of a raise? As a woman I'm hesitant to be open about my reason: I want more time at home with my kids. I lateraled to this firm a year ago for WLB and they are indeed flexible on WFH which helps. Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.
