  1. Thanks, everyone. Some of these books I have heard of, others, not.
  2. As a very newly married adult(before Google, though I don't know that Google is a great idea) I had some questions. As "generally" as I knew how I asked a married(10 yrs) friend for advice. I was incredibly vague. She totally shut down. Obviously we don't talk about "that." That struggle with tEa persisted for years because, who do you talk to about it? My dd and her peers are starting to get married. Where do we direct these young ladies when they have questions?
  3. I have averaged 2,000 a month in the 14 months since we bought our new van in Feb 2018.
  4. Nike Alpha something. Way too much $$$ (find coupon/sale) Easy to get off after exercise and pads are not removable.
  5. Thanks for the info. I couldn't help but wonder why they seem to be showing up more often. Especially in my "older" friends posts.
  6. if any, in answering those questions on Facebook that seem so innocent. Such as--There are no cities that have an e in their name or The English language has only one word that has long oo sound-good. People seem very quick to prove this wrong or that they know many city names that have an e. Or correct by answering hood. What could the original poster gain by people answering?
  7. This. As much as I hate it, I know enough parents with no healthcare, or deductibles so high, that a trip to the ER, for what ends up being nothing, is a major consideration.
  8. I see the difference when there is a lot of travel involved. This particular position= -5% travel. You mentioned again something that I have always seen in salaried positions-a high percentage of over 40 hour weeks. Yes, some shorter days over the year but mostly not. We want to word the policy in such a way that the job gets done, most hours at the office(public related job) vs remote. Before current person/generation this position was in the office consistent, regular hours M-F. Again, we don't want to be dinosaurs but change for the sake of change isn't on our agenda either. We're in the process of updating our policy manual, trying to plan for the future and cover bases, being general and specific. 😃
  9. LOL! All good and helpful. I think the company does want to be compassionate and helpful and I think that is possible. Very small company, less than 15 people, so there is a natural compassion as well as a "we're small enough" we really can't have someone out multiple days a week for months (not sickness) and not feel it work wise, morale wise, decision wise. Concrete policy would help alleviate questions on both sides of the fence and prepare us for a future that might need to be more open to remote work.
  10. I know people who have tons of travel in their job description and have always wondered how they balance that with family/time off. When I had that kind of job I was single. This particular job description will never have extensive travel. RE:bolded This is what we're working on. We've never had to question whether someone was taking advantage or not. Most salaried workers tend towards too many hours not workers not doing the job.
  11. I like the "open to public hours" idea. That could possibly be started quickly. I also think you hit on another issue that might need to be spelled out. What kind of notice should be given for time off. Obviously you can't know when you'll be sick or have emergency but how much notice for non-sick/emergency times?
  12. Even this wording helps. I don't think anyone in meetings has mentioned tracking by day or 1/2 day. This would be a more concrete way to deal with multiple partial days.
