Congrats!! My husband went on a one week trip to visit his family a few months ago and honest to god, it was the most fun I had since before the pandemic. Seven days of me, the cats, and full control of the tv remote.

Count your lucky stars…it’s all a matter of perspective. My husband deployed a month ago and won’t be back till May at the earliest. I miss him and hate when he leaves for extended periods.

funny

Yes - of course you do. But quite frankly your husband deploying just isn’t relevant to the situation. It’s like people who respond to those on this app w money stress or money anxiety reminding they that they are wealthier than 95% of the worlds population. While true — it’s just kind of an out of touch response. That comes across as dismissing what the OP is feeling. Or like you need to one-up her. I pray that your husband has a safe deployment. And that you hold up well until he returns home.

Ooooo enjoy!! I just need my husband to take a week long trip & take the kids with him :)

Do any other women go batshit crazy when you have a new potential love interest?

Referrals are, for many, our bread and butter. Some attorneys often encourage clients and prospective with positive relationships to leave reviews on platforms like Avvo and Justia. Others avoid this like the plague due to the implications and risk of receiving, and more so responding to, bad reviews. We know against the rules to incentivize through compensation referrals from your clients; however, what do you do or where do you limit incentivizing clients to make referrals, if at all?

Need a suit recommendation in the $500-800 price range. I got a couple Jos A Banks suits tailored when I was an intern, and they served me fine for that purpose, but haven’t upgraded since because I hardly ever needed one. I’m not going to need a suit for office-wear anytime soon, but would like at least one nice, versatile suit for weddings and receptions, etc. My size has changed since college, so I’ll need to get measured. I’m not in a major city, but will be in Boston and DC fairly often.
