Unemployment rocks. 

I'm not kidding, after trying to juggle kids and work since March, this new freedom has immensely improved my mental-health.  I don't even care about burning through savings or becoming another statistic of how the pandemic is hurting women's careers. 

Don't get me wrong, staying at home with kids is harder than going to the office but the JUGGLE nearly killed me.  I'm so well rested now and my chronic anxiety is 100% gone.

My only regret is I wish I'd left earlier.

The promise of 50's and 60's is that technology would allow us all to live comfortably and not have to work so hard.

Only a few got the benefits of all that technology, and the rest of us have to work harder. At least twice as hard to begin with because it is impossible to maintain a household on a single salary so both partners need to work.

Excellent observations! And all you are going to have to give up is the useless 'stuff' from W mart. Indeed we will have to be * 'poorer' in this 21st. century in order for the wealth to go around.

Is everyone else crazy busy with work ?   ???

Not sure why this is happening but the fora are also quiet so maybe that's something happening everywhere...

Personally yes. Very busy, lots of pressure.

Also spending most of my time with Linz. Feeling a bit smothered.

Wow.  I'm glad you're feeling better.  There's nothing more important than your health and happiness.  People lived in mud huts and were still happy.  They died from diarrhea after drinking the village poo-water, but hey beggars can't be choosers.  I'll let myself out...

Sigh....

Full on stress these days.

We're going to try to have kid #2 - this needs IVF which means we will be going into heavy debt and Joan is on hormones, for a 20% shot according to the Dr.  There's no turning back at this point.  I have trepidations but the joy of Easy being doubled is worth tens of thousands easily, even at a longshot.

Work sucks for both of us.

Weather is getting colder.

Easy is cute and learning new words each day - almost two years old, his BD is in one week !!!  But he's also VERY slappy and we're starting to see hints of the obstinance that Joan and I carry... in the potential harbinger of terrifying-twos.

How are you doing ?   :(
