Blah blah covid… blah blah unemployment, then new job, then unemployment. Fast forward.

Can someone give me advice or words of encouragement here? I’m feeling quite burned out. Here are the details: - I’ve been on my current project for over a year now - on my 3rd work stream on the project - due to team dynamics it doesn’t really make sense for me to roll off and have someone else roll on to take my place - It’s not even the number of hours I’m working that makes me feel burned out, I just am sick of this same project every day for a year

I’ve been able to keep it pretty out of sight on videoconference calls

During the difficult time, be mindful while going out for protest. Being an immigrant, it’s a high risk for your visa renewal. There is ongoing police activity and probability of getting your name in police record, which will impact your visa renewal. Be careful and stay safe and don’t do anything which is unlawful in a foreign country (not that you do unlawful in your home country).

My MIL has made remarks to my husband that she doesn’t understand why we need a nanny for our infant since I am able to WFH (I’m a biglaw associate). She also doesn’t get why we have a cleaner and dog walker and seems to imply we’re wasting our money by outsourcing funds on things we can do. She was a SAHM so I guess I understand why she feels that way, but how do I explain to her why these things are necessary? I actually love my MIL but this is driving me nuts.
