My days are very similar- but my kid is one. I try to incorporate bonding time which entails watching a little cocomelon before dinner, reading time (2 books) before bath time, and bath time. I decompress at the end of the day by watching my fav show and maybe drinking a glass of wine. I try not to be soo hard on myself because me (and you OP) are doing the best we can. ❤️

We all need a lift sometimes, in my case all the time 🥺😇

We meal prep on the weekend so dinner is quick. Generally as soon as I’m done with work, we play for about 90 minutes and then dinner, bath time, books, and bedtime. Winter is tough but most of the year we hit the playground in the early evening as our play time. During winter I usually replace the playground with the library but now it’s closed due to Covid again ughhh lol.

I love this - and we love the library too. The message I’m getting from this thread is that I really need to look into quick and easy meals or take meal-prepping into serious consideration. Not going to let this anxious, falling behind feeling get to me ..

MD or MBA? I got into both. I know most will say choose the MD, but hear me out: MD: I'd have to go into a specialty to have a good IRR given my salary & the $200K+ debt. By the time I'd be done with residency the US may be in a single payer system. US doctors make 3x the amount in France and 2x vs UK.. I currently make what a doctor makes in France. That could be the future here, too. MBA: 1 yr. Europe. I'd make about 15-20% more vs. now.
