In the office today, NY biglaw factory. Somewhere, echoing down the halls of my floor, is someone hacking away with a terrible cough for the last hour. Sigh….almost two years of a pandemic and we apparently still haven’t learned the simplest lesson to stay home when sick….this is why biglaw can’t have nice things!

I got sick with what I at first thought was stomach bug last Sunday (vomiting, fatigue, then crazy chills and body aches). Lasted 1 day. My nose was also a bit congested, so went to get a pcr on Monday and got a positive result. Tested again at 2 diff places on Wed - 2 negatives. All pcr. Had no symptoms since Sunday. Has anyone had something similar happen to them? Was it just false positive (everyone’s been saying that almost never happens), or just super mild case of Covid?

This is going to sound nuts. But, based on the close, here is the tip. LESSON: Check out where we closed on Friday and where we closed today. Same spot. Tip: Markets don't like to create a significant low or high on a Friday afternoons or Mondays. Very often they will trade their previous setup on Tuesday . . . Meaning, this sustained bullish trend can take us up to 3111.25 on a HWB Short or 3139.50 61.8% without blinking an eye. It's like the dip into lows never existed.

Got a bit too drunk at a work happy hour. Nothing embarrassing happened but I definitely blacked out and could’ve said stuff that I wouldn’t have said sober. Everyone else was also drinking quite a bit, so it was fine but not ideal and I’ve just been ashamed. Lesson learned. This happen to anyone? How do you get over the shame/anxiety of “what happened?”

So am I crazy to think my nanny will be able to take care of a four year old, two year old, and baby by herself all day? The older ones don’t do any preschool right now due to combo of pandemic and having a newborn sibling. Nanny is great and experienced and doesn’t seem concerned but god knows I find the days pretty tough when my nanny is out and my husband is working and I’ve got all three alone all day. They’ll all be fine, right?
