Plus, two reader comments:

Says Candice on 10 things I did on my weekend alone: “I took a vacation day last Friday and spent it at home alone. Guilt-free binging on Manifest? Check! Ate snacks for lunch? Check! Did my girlfriend from across the street come over at 2 p.m. and crack a couple bottles of wine and watch Bridesmaids? Check! The burnout from the last 18 months is real. My family has been beyond fortunate, so there hasn’t been a single complaint out of my mouth. But I hit a snag recently and there was a Monday where I barely got out of bed to go to work. I put in for a vacation day that morning.”

Says Carter on 12 readers share their tattoos: “My daughter, who is a surgical resident, was once called a ‘delicate flower.’ She got a tattoo of a thistle because there are also indelicate flowers in this world.”
