Thank you, G1!

What all are you allowed to buy? Desk, chair, monitor?

Basically anything. I bought AirPods, Phillips hue bulbs, and some other stuff I forget.

Hey ladies! What are your favorite go to basic t shirts? I was really liking the old navy luxe t shirts because of how soft and inexpensive they were, but they wrinkle so much. I don’t want a shirt that looks like I slept in after the first time I sit down, not that I have to steam before each wear. Bonus points for budget priced - I’m wfh with a 2 year old right now, so I want to feel/look decent but not be devastated if it ends up with baby slime on it.

Starting to feel some separation anxiety/guilt as we are starting up daycare again next week for my 2yo. It was fine for him to go before and while I actually went to work but now my husband and I are perm. WFH. As much as I loved the chaos and having him around the last 3 months, it’s not forever sustainable. But now I feel guilty for working and not trying to make it work with all of us at home. Just venting as I am sad that this is time is ending.

Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back. I hope the flexi work culture allows permanent WFH - I don't have a "good enough" reason, but I don't want to go (isn't this good enough?) It's been 1.5 years now, too comfortable to step out from my PJs to jeans.

I went back to the office this month (3/4 days per week) and it’s been a positive experience. Plus it seems that some partners who are going in appreciated it. But the office is a 15 min drive away for me. Some people need to commute an hour plus to be there. Will they be at a disadvantage if they actually try to take advantage of hybrid WFH in the future?

Husband Relies on Me for Lunch - I know this is dumb, but before the pandemic, my husband ate lunch at the office and I was generally in charge of dinner. He’s super flexible with buying takeout so I never found it annoying. Since the pandemic began though, my husband has begun relying on me to provide him lunch while WFH. I’m busy during the day, and we have different lunch preference schedules. He does not get how annoying it is to me to have to be in charge of his lunch. Am I in the wrong?
