Hi Ladies, I just need to talk my thoughts out. I’m about to visit my SO’s family with him out of state and stay for four days. I agreed to do so a few months back. Recently with workload change (I was planning to take time off eoy but won’t be able to do so), I really don’t have it in me to give four precious days to someone else. I’m about to head to airport soon and really really really don’t want to go. But I feel bad for cancel so last minute. This is purely on my bandwidth, not them…

Is this dress appropriate for a firm holiday party with an “after 5 cocktail attire” dress code? I thought the neckline might be a bit risky but I don’t have much going on in the chest area so no cleavage really lol…I’m also the date and not the employee if it matters. Thanks!!

How do I divide the chores in this case? I’m the breadwinner - husband has been taking time off from work. No kids. Two dogs. I feel like I do more chores because there are some things that I just can’t stand. Like dishes left in the sink, dirty floor, dirty dogs, laundry…etc. When I ask him to do those chores, he says he will do them later but he takes forever. So I do them instead. He does grocery shopping, yard work, some cooking. Is it unfair if I repeatedly ask him to do more? 😡😡

I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
