KPMG2 - there is a difference between rant and plea!!! 😃😃😃 your posts prove my point that I am yet to meet a person who is not racist or religious bigot. You don’t have to prove anything and you don’t have to stop being Muslim. Here is what I wonder about - there are thousands of religions in this world. Some more orthodox than others. Each one tries to provide the best path for enlightenment. Rapture is not something limited to Christianity. The concept also applies to Muslims. Try to answer this - there is a island in middle of ocean. There is a local tribe which is self sufficient and it does not have any contact with external world. Will the inhabitants go to hell or heaven when it is judgement day? Please look at this question. See yourself in mirror and then think what I said earlier. The religion is for betterment of humankind, not the vice-versa.

“Trust me, try this, try that!! Back to my plea, etc” + your constant attempt at “enlightening” people with examples = shoving beliefs down people’s throat. What makes you think your belief is correct for all? When I think about all the bad things that happened in the past, and is still happening because of religion, I simply cannot believe in something like that. From my experience, most religions view others as lesser beings if they don’t believe in the same things that you do and that’s why I’m ticked off. If I’m overreacting, I’m really sorry D3, but I’m just trying to express the other end of the spectrum here

This just took a turn I was not expecting. I stand by my response though, D3. I am still Muslim after that rant 🤷🏽‍♀️

Please don't take my silence for accepting whatever it is you are saying D3. I'm just not trying to get into a religious debate with you. At the end of the day, all religions tell us to be good people, live wisely, give in charity. Do that and you're in a good spot.

A3/ EY3 - you are getting hyped up for no reason. I am not trying to shove anything nor I am on conversion spree. The point I was trying to make all along - is - either you are religious or not! Simple. Whether you are Buddhist, Christian, Hindu or Martian - is not important. What is the differentiating factor is - whether you believe in god or not. And it does not mean that people who do not believe in god are lesser human beings by any mean. The debate was open until someone mentioned “Martian” and rest of the folks started apologizing for not being Martian.

How do you guys schedule your hours?
Say I need to hit 200 hours per month. Currently I take the amount of working days in a month (M-F) and divide it by 200 to get how many hours I need to bill per day. For example, May has 20 working days, so I need to bill 10hrs./day M-F.

I’ve done exactly that thus far and have been able to stick to a pretty consistent schedule. But I know a lot work on weekends. For instance, if I worked Saturdays too there are 25 billable days which means 8hrs/day.

Curious how other nannies are, but my full time nanny at home takes a couple naps each day. She feeds the baby well and helps with other house chores like cleaning, but from my POV she does not play with the baby enough, usually lets her read books or play music and then sits by. Then she would doze off for 15+ min at a time. My husband and i both have seen this. Is this normal?
