Are you stressed about the current childcare situation? Our au pair is supposed to be here before and after school. Now she’s with them 8-5 with limited child care experience. I am really stressed...
My husband tested positive with covid - despite both of us being vaccinated. He has to isolate from the kids and I which means I am having to solo parent + work. Our kids just turned 2 and 4, so they still need constant supervision. How have others stayed afloat with workloads in similar situations this last year?
Actually spent all of my per diem today and am feeling shitty about it. Normally, I have enough left to essentially eat free over the weekend!

Looking to transition into a management role but having a hard time getting past the experience requirement.

Any recommendations? Anyone know of an organization hiring in FL? Remote preferred.
What is a better offer? 70K Florida or 100K NY?
Both jobs have same benefits and roles are similar. Is the $30K difference going to be washed away by state taxes and higher rent?

I am in a healthy happy marriage, own a home, financially stable and 32. I just found out I am pregnant and I am a bit shocked. I have thyroid issues and so we were told to try for 6 months and if/when it didnt they would start medical intervention…welp naturally happened the first month. My husband is over the moon but I am so nervous, probably because I didn’t think it would happen so soon. I wanted this for so long and now it’s here and I am being so ungrateful. Anyone go through this?

I’m a divorced mom of 3, 2 whom are at home with me 24/7. I have a great job and make decent money but all my bills have gone up this year and I live paycheck to paycheck. My ex had also requested to lessen child support because he chose to quit his decent job to go make $15 an hour. My goal is to buy my own house but it sure is hard and I fantasize about going on beautiful vacations to the beach with my kids and having a big beautiful house. Are there actual side hustles that make real $$$?

I've got a doubt. My mother doesn't have a very good relationship with my father.
So, my mother usually comes in my room and we talk about things. I'm the only one she can talk to freely.
Now if I marry, then how will I find time and place to talk to my mother in private? I mean my wife will be around and if I want to talk to my mother about things like I do now, how will it happen? I also would not want my would be wife to think that my mother and I are teaming up or something.

Ever since I became a lawyer, almost ten years ago, I feel like the time just flies by. I suppose this is a combination of being extremely busy (2200+ billable hours per year) and dealing with litigation deadlines. Any suggestions as to how I can make the time feel slower, the way it did in college and law school?

The hill I am prepared to die on is that John Roberts is a coward and not a secret, liberal hero. His concurrence today is, in all but its form, a plea to be given an easier job—one in which he wouldn’t have to think about the fact or severity of an infringement of rights. No one praise him for it: it’s what he wants and expects, and he hasn’t done enough (read: anything) to earn it.
Anyone else struggle to turn off “work mode” at night and on the weekends? I feel always “on edge” because of the demands of the legal profession and expectations of clients.
