Trello whenever life gets a lil hard to juggle! If you don't have access to a good Gantt tool then totally Gantt Project (it is free). Beyond that I see a lot of busy people use Weekly or something like that to allow externals to schedule meetings with them.

I have a family visit coming up next week that is looking likely to conflict with a major client deadline. I’ve canceled my fair share of vacations for this job, but after a year+ of pandemic isolation, loss and nonstop work, this one is a big deal — I need to be present for my family for just these couple of days. Any ideas for how to frame this to the client? In house lawyers, is there an acceptable way your outside counsel could handle this situation? I am feeling so sad and stressed.
