Am I overreacting in this scenario? My aunt passed away this week. The entire extended family is vaccinated and coming together this weekend for her memorial gathering & funeral. My older sister flew in from NYC and didn’t tell anyone that she had a fever the past few days. She has not been tested for Covid, and exposed my father who picked her up from the airport. He is making her get a Covid test today. I don’t think she should attend any event & potentially expose older family members. AITA?
Any recommendations on family-based immigration lawyer for consultation? Had filed i-130 for mom in February of last year, which was subsequently approved and she has been documentarily qualified for months after we completed the other forms. Problem is that she has been waiting to be invited to the US consulate (in India) for months and with the current backlog it looks like it may take another 12 to 16 months before the happens. I’m pregnant and need my mom to be with me sooner. Contd.

After having a child, I never struggle with motivation anymore. I want to provide him the best life possible and make him proud. He is such a light in our lives, and it gives me a new sense of purpose knowing I am a role model to him. Anyone feel the same?

Anyone have any experience applying for a job at a client through a standard job listing on their website? Assume no conflicts of interest. Asking for a friend.
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
How is your company’s health insurance. I recently left PwC and I thought the $300 a month for a family of 3 for the HD plan with $8,000 deductible was high. But at new firm I’m paying double that with a $10,000 deductible.

Looking for a consultant / senior consultant with a Procurement/sourcing background for a 12 month role for a Finanical Services company. The role will be remote and salary is very competitive. If interested, please drop me a DM.
Have been interviewing — at first just to see what the pay would be/for fun — but now I am really interested and think I’d jump ship if I got it and pay is almost triple what I make now. I know if I leave my partner will be left with ALL of my work and now help and he’s been a tremendous mentor and I really appreciate him. Should I tell him now I’m interviewing. I don’t wanna leave him drowning and leave in a bad way because I really do appreciate him. Any advice?
Celebrate with me, everyone! Baby turned 3 months today (have a toddler as well) & I’ve been home with both kids on mat leave without childcare…. Today is my first entirely free day!!! Went shopping with my sister in laws for a dress for an upcoming wedding, had lunch with them, now at a brewery getting buzzed and studying Spanish. Lord I hope the day is going well for my husband so he doesn’t dread the next time I do this!!!!
I'm a very new mom, will be navigating the holidays for the first time with a baby. Should I be concerned about health, safety, etc? I do have some concerns but my husband doesn't. I'm trying to stay excited for the holidays but just feeling drained - anything I can do for more energy? TYIA #QA
In need of advice- my friends have excluded me a few times claiming "they know I have work". I've told them outside of jan-march I have unlimited PTO. They all went on a road trip this weekend and didn't tell me. Should I tell them that it's hurtful, let it go, or ghost them? We've been friends since 8th grade but this has been a reoccurring theme for the past few years.
