The head of my practice said he wants to use his father’s vaccine card (same name) to go to bars and restaurants. It is a crime. I wish he didn’t tell me. Who do I report it to? The firm? The ethics committee? The police? I feel like I’ll lose my job if I report him, but not reporting it feels wrong.
Thoughts on Costco sofa sets / sectionals? Not the most stylish, but looking for comfy and durable and strain resistant to survive baby and dog and extended family. Doesn't need to last forever, but 5 years of enjoyable comfy sitting, sleeping and reasonable use is all I expect. Had a trendy gorgeous velvet masterpiece before baby. I miss those days. 😔 Anyway, any advice, fabrics, or other things to consider?

Had a baby recently and, for the life of me, can't imagine going back to work. My husband also works extreme hours. How do you parents with demanding careers do it? I'm thinking of moving to industry.
Any fish out there leave your firm either during or immediately after taking paternity / maternity leave? Any repercussions to take into consideration if you don’t return to work for a specific length of time?

At the same time developing skills in other areas; such as being ordained as a Zen priest and receiving an Integral Coach certification.
