I like to eat dinner before 630pm (old soul). Anyone that works from home mostly have a good system to get dinner prepared and ready by 6ish while balancing EOD work tasks (assuming no major EOD meetings on a good day)?

Boundaries - block your calendar, just like any other colleagues that are doing family-related activities. So long as your work is getting done on time, it shouldn’t matter. Also talk to your supervisor, if you have EOD tasks, reports, etc due and they aren’t looking/reviewing till the following morning, it shouldn’t matter whether you submit at 5p or 8p, so long as you have their blessing.

If you swap crypto: let's say $100 BTC for $100 ETH with a $5 fee, where do you account for the fee? I've heard that net proceeds are (proceeds-fee), and cost basis is (cost+fee). So would you consider 100-5=95 as proceeds for estimating gains/loss on the sale of BTC AND also add $5 to the cost basis of ETH?
