I am going to be working from home most of the time starting Monday. My high schoolers are doing school virtually from home. Any tips?

Set designated work hours and hold yourself to it. If you can, make a workspace just for school stuff. It helps the home/work distinction.

Is this salary too low? I'm @ final interview for senior accountant and job posting said $60-65k. Before you say it's too low right away, my experience is on a low end of this of this role. Just 1 year auditer @ national top 10, 6 months intern at same firm, 1 year accounting intern at local private firm, and 2 years doing AP clerk. I'm a licensed CPA and in MCOL. I really want this title for growth but don't want to get stiffed. It's a large corp w/ great benefits.
