    Yeah, the joke is, is there going to be a "baby bump" in 9 months, or a "divorce bump"?

    The ability to co-exist happily with DH is proportionate to space available. When we lived in NJ, he would hang out for hours in his home office which was on the opposite corner of the house from where my home office was. Up here, his tiny workshop and his boat has saved our marriage.

    I would rather be with my partner in a tiny space than living separately during such a difficult time.

    Maybe both. Or babies with 2 really unhappy parents who can’t afford to divorce, like in the “olden days” when women didn’t work and earn money outside of the home. It feels like half of the jobs have gone away, nearly everything with direct customer service.

    My industry was shut down until (at least) May.
    there is no work from home option, and my license would be seized, and I’d be fined.
    meanwhile, the vast majority of people in my field cannot get unemployment as we are freelancers. Illegally mis categorized, at that.

    True, that sounds so tough.

    If illegally miscategorized.... report them to either your state department of labor or the federal department of labor.

    There are rumors hours will be reduced. One location had a Covid-19 positive employee and is being desanitized including professionally misted. It is not the site I work at.

    Just got laid off. 13.5 years and buh bye! No severance. Getting paid through the end of the month and the 4 untaken vacation days I had earned so far this year.
