You just tell them the dates you want to take off...ask if any conflicts. Don’t have to over share if you don’t want to

Kinda related since I want a healthy dog but any apartment living shiba inu, beagle, or corgi owners here? Debating between the 3 and want to ensure I can give them a proper healthy active lifestyle since I know all are fairly active. Have previously owned a beagle but lived at home so it was easy to give her enough exercise. Given we’re all WFH, it’s fairly easy I imagine to satiate the activity needed. However, I have a couple Qs based on when we eventually go back to the office...

Would love anyone's genuine advice: I'm early 30s but starting to worry about my mom and her future retirement. Grew up poor/single mom who immigrated so I know she doesn't have 401k, or pension. How can start helping for this, if at all? Do any of you worry about how to help out your parent(s) in the future? If so, what avenues,if any, have you found? Sorry for the odd question, but I've always appreciated advice found in this bowl.

Something that's been on my mind is how working remote is actually potentially helping the chronically ill. (At least, it's helping me). I have several chronic conditions - physical and emotional. I have struggled noticeably since I first started working full time - when you're chronically ill, such a rigid schedule and environment can really make certain conditions worse. I'll continue below by describing how much better I'm doing and also thoughts on how to proceed as we go back to "normal"
