Validating an idea I had: Childcare loans for working parents. The loans are given to the parents to pay for daycare/nanny/other types of childcare. As the kids grow older, the expenses for childcare drop dramatically. At that point the parents can pay off the loan with a small amount of interest.

My parents and my fiancé are at odds to the number of people we should be inviting. I personally am fine with a large wedding but my fiancé is pretty angry. My parents and him are paying the most with me giving a smaller share (what I can afford). What do I do? They’re both equal parties $$ wise but obviously he’s the groom.

I often find myself clouded in life and at work and this ends up with me saying or doing the wrong thing. For example, I move patients apart of my job and have help from others. I need to count down like 3, 2, 1 so everybody moves at the same time. Yesterday I said on three, then proceeded to say 3 first. It’s funny but humiliating in front of doctors, nurses and my crew. What is wrong with me? Am I anxious, clouded head from depression, nervous? I think all the time and feel that it contributes
