Grandchildren

Is anyone torn about helping out by watching young grandchildren so that they donít have to go to daycare while parents work? In light of corona?

I love all of 1956's ideas! Letting the kids express themselves and be creative for a change! We weren't allowed to give the kids any food, though - although they were allowed to bring their own.

First check of the year. Did something change? Tax rate? Insurance premium? These things usually don't go down though.

Yes, a person at Social Security told me about the appeal where you can avoid the two year lookback if your income has fallen significantly. Like I said, though, with my husband still working 2 days...
