Just attended CIMA, the industry's ultimate annual Holiday party, and I feel hollow. This used to fill me with joy and excitement. What's wrong with me?

I felt the same way at my holiday party. Just burnt the f out. Only been doing this for 4 years and I can’t stand Agency get togethers.

I need a little tax guidance. I left a job in Dec 2019 and they had to pay me back some unused PTO. My bank statement says they made me that payment on Dec 30, 2019. But my 2019 W-2 does not include this amount, and Payroll claims this $ got processed on Jan 2, 2020. I have a couple more weeks of extension to file my 2019 taxes and they haven’t responded about amending the W2. What do I do?

First baby is 13 months old and she’s a great baby, however not a very easy one.. still have not gotten to sleeping through the night. So in a nutshell quite exhausting for me. I quit my job so that I can settle her before I get back to work. Lately my husband and I have had conversations in which he mentions ‘next baby’. I do feel while I’m taking time off from work might make sense to have baby 2, but I’m not sure if I can do so much all over again. Any suggestions or similar experiences?
