Need to vent but, how can people be able to afford a house that can only eat 25% of their monthly income? we live in a HCOL area and the houses in a good school districts are +400K (these houses are 1 hour away from DC too).

Binge watching Futurama and honestly can't stop crying like a baby. This show hits you right in the feels.
What’s a good OOO for maternity leave? Did you have your assistant monitor/forward your emails? Did you refer everyone to another attorney, or just tell them to contact your assistant? Thanks!!!

It finally feels like spring in the east coast. Playing with my kid at the park. Don't wanna work. Why can't we wait until Monday;(
I feel momentarily defeated. I wish my parents were more encouraging. I’m in the process of buying my first home, which feels overwhelming and incredibly lonely as I’m going through this without their guidance or support. I felt so hopeful and excited to share with them that I was preapproved by a lender (an important step). My mother seemed annoyed and my father immediately began rattling off every possible thing that can go wrong. He critiqued the home, the cost, down payment, you name it.
Hey ladies. I need your opinion on something. I’m planning my wedding and deciding what to do for the father daughter moments. My dad passed away when I was four, so I would like my uncle to (cont.)
Been seeing so many posts on generations- i mean millennials eat avocados coz thats all they can afford, GenXers have disappointed both pessimists and optimists, Baby boomers fucked it up for everyone
Had a mommy breakdown. In-laws come over every Sunday and constantly make comments during/resist my 10 month olds bedtime. Hes a sleep champ, but the deviation from his schedule by 10-15 mins makes it harder for him to fall asleep. I feel uncomfortable pushing back on my FIL when he picks up the baby and legit takes him when I say it’s bedtime. Husband apologized and is supportive but how do you recover after a frustrated/overwhelmed random mommy cry? I feel so drained and hubby is trying to ..

Hi Ladies! Does anyone have good recommendations for wireless headphones that aren’t Air Pods? Air Pods don’t fit or stay in my ears (I have small ears and often have to use child-sized). Thanks!
Not 12 weeks pregnant yet, but I know my work is getting affected because of the exhaustion I’m not able to give it my 100%. Should I hold off til 12 weeks to bring it up to engagement team while on busy season? Or get out now so they can get another resource?
Kudos to the OP who shared her life story (about being pregnant and deciding to keep the baby despite the initial backlash from the father) and continuing to update us. Initially I didn’t get the dilemma, now I do. It makes me feel I’m a part of your life in some small way. Maybe it’s sad, but I really needed that during these difficult times. The support in this group is phenomenal.
If you recently gave birth, what gift would u want? I don't want to send anything for the baby as I'm assuming the child probably has everything it needs. I was thinking a case of wine as i feel if i had a baby i would eventually want to have a drink very soon but any ideas would help. Thanks so much!!
Husband wants to go get his children in another state as they currently are with their mother. They are my step children. I know this isn’t a good idea because they are safer where they are now.....
An employee at a London agency gets Coronavirus. Instead of implementing WFH indefinitely, they close for a few days to clean.

How much money do you having in your savings vs investing in a brokerage account/IRA/real estate, etc?

Any firms “subsidizing” the costs of having a home office during this extended WFH period? My firm PwC announced a $250 payment to everyone to make up for any home office purchases (not that you had to buy anything to get the $250, everyone gets it regardless). Curious what other firms were doing.
