My brother and sister in law never, NEVER host my mother in law for holidays because they always go to her parents’, and the families don’t have a great relationship.

I have a little less than $30,000 in a “Pension Cash” fund of my previous employer. When I say cash, this is truly cash - the ~$30K will sit and continue to rot until I turn 55. Not tied to anything in the market. The firm is adamant that I cannot withdraw/roll over this money under any circumstances until I hit 55. Anyone been in a similar situation? Any advice on possible options to gain access to the funds?

I have a student who did nothing the whole term, but passed the final exam with a 79. Should I pass him?
My District decided to initiate a “no zero policy” starting now. I was informed by administration that when a student does not turn in their work, I still have to give the student a fifty percent even though that student didn’t earn it. I teach sixth graders and I am not sure how I feel about this. Any words of advice?
How do you deal with the guilt from income inequality? Me making $150k vs a Partner making $1M is a steep difference, but what feels more painful is me vs someone making $30k and supporting a family.

Hey moms, I’m 33weeks pregnant, just entering 34 and way too excited to meet my little one. I’ve nested the crap out of the past few weeks and feel like I’ve gotten everything I need, put everything away, set up the nursery, (includes watching all YouTube nesting videos there ever were) etc etc. I’m out of things to do and work is slow-hence bored out of my mind.
