How do y’all relax? I am burnt out and need to relax for a weekend but I can’t in my apartment. There is always something to clean or cook or something. My apartment’s pool is loud and crazy on the weekend so laying out isn’t an option. Any ideas?

Just a hotel night alone with nowhere to go, a good book or movies, maybe a bottle of champagne and no responsibilities. Heaven. This was before becoming a parent. It’s been a looooooooooong time!

I don’t know if you’re in an area where this is a thing, but I like traveling to nearby cities for the weekends (leave Saturday morning, return Sunday evening) in the summer. I’m in NYC, so the places I usually go are Philly, DC, Boston, etc.

Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.
