In May, I learned that I would not be getting renewed due to COVID. I spent all summer worried about the future and what would happen if my diabetic husband got sick. I ended up getting a job out of state with a district and a governor that takes things seriously while my old zip code is a major NYC Covid Hotspot that the governor put under major restriction. I’m so glad I am where I am now.

A few months ago I asked the question about using travel smart routers to host a VPN to disguise your location. The purpose of this is to have a working vacation in a foreign country, without telling work about it. My work computer has restricted access so I cannot install a VPN service on the computer without help from IT. My work around is a smart router that can directly host a VPN. Now I am in Cabo with a VPN to the US. I’ve included some details in a comment below. AMA
Talking to a partner in Netherlands who is a Canadian and American expat. The chatter started with Covid and masks but I realized the Dutch people are so well behaved, mindful of their neighbors and understanding of their government. Why is America not like this? Why do we behave so boorish and uncultured in comparison? We can't even wear masks to the store, and the Dutch are back to normal life already.
Question for anyone who knows, I have a Europe trip coming up next year and I am trying to travel to 4 different countries (Spain, Italy, France & London.)

Guess what, my SIL arranged a make up session for my MIL (in her 70s) as her birthday gift. They think if you wear masks, you will be 100% protected. Better find another way to get her COVID fast. Some people just do take COVID seriously at all.

Got pregnant through Letrazole + Ovidrel IUI and my doctor has me on estrogen 2mg 3 times a day and progesterone 200mg 2 times a day. I’m week 7 and already am or feel huge. I’m so paranoid these hormones are making me gain so much unnecessary weight in my first trimester. I’ve been eating the same and literally none of my pants fit. Will my body readjust when I finally hit week 10 and can hopefully be off both hormones? Any advice here?

Any tips on faster recovery after egg retrieval? Had egg retrieval today and am sore all over my pelvic area.
