Last Sunday I flipped out after 5 months at home. I went on a shopping spree at the mall and spent $2000 in an hour and came back home (avoiding exposure to COVID, folks). Now I have new clothes but nowhere to go. Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

A Tag Heuer watch, some stuff from Hugo Boss and a Ferragamo tie (which I won't have a chance to wear for a while). I thought I'd get a fraud alert from Amex since I spent 5 months spending money basically on Uber eats.

Have any of you taken FMLA leave due to a positive COVID case for a member of your household? My husband just tested positive for COVID and I am not sure yet if my 2 toddlers have it. In any event, even if they are healthy, they can’t go back to daycare for awhile so childcare is all on me. I’m wondering if I should apply for FMLA leave so I don’t completely crash my hours, but I am also not sure whether this situation qualifies for FMLA.

How many woman are still regularly wearing heels in the office? I’ve found that my office is much more casual than is was pre-covid but still need to look presentable. I am tall and in returning to my pre covid work wardrobe I’m realizing how much of my clothing I need to wear heels with - either because pants are too long or it just looks odd with flats. I feel weird walking around in heels when the other women are more casual. Should I stay in line with what others are wearing or are heels ok?
