Planning on using Quark Expeditions! Haven’t booked it yet but I have a friend who used them and loved it.

Gym, spa, some shopping (if you fancy a particular brand, maybe get something), solitaire.. if possible take a trip and stay in a nice resort

Hahaha ! If not for Covid i would've totally hyped you to go to airport, pick a flight & goooo ! Solo trips are definitely adventures & if you are not usually someone who has birthday rituals to hangout with close group - i would totally recommend a trip to celebrate :) ! My 2 cents, a short road trip to something closer to nature/scenic spots (if you are into them) might be fun :) Add in a spa day to pamper ! With the whole delta variant thing, it reduces exposure too - no airport, not much crowds.

For my 25th bday i went to the airport and got on the next flight to either an English or Spanish speaking country. It was exhilarating. Highlyyyyyy recommend it :)

Important note though is that most countries require you to have a return flight before allowing you to enter the country. I did not & it was a whole thing at entry checkpoint eeek

Depends on what you're saying is "crazy" haha - for me, it was a week at Miraval outside of Tucson. I went crazy...on relaxing.

Why plan it now, check out whatever’s flying on the day and off you go!

Hi mamas, how do you handle a sick child when you cannot take the days off? My son is 18 months, just started daycare and he’s been sick a lot. I just changed job, so I don’t have enough PTO to take, but I’m able to WFH. Husband cannot work from home or take time off since he has a big deadline at work right now. How do you handle a sick child but also get the work done? We don’t have any families live close by neither.

I'm very much an investing novice and looking for thoughts on how to maximize gains.

And if so, where do you start for selection? 32 y/o with maxed out 401k if that makes a difference (though I do contribute very little for my HSA - should that be more of a thing?)
