Ann Cannon is a beloved advice columnist for the Salt Lake Tribune, and every month, she stops by to answer questions from our viewers!


I have two job offers. One is in a field I really enjoy, but doesn't pay as much as the other, which is a role I didn't ever see myself in, but pays a higher salary. Should I go for passion, or money?


I have a neighbor who really takes care of me- watches dogs while I'm gone, meets technicians at my house if I'm gone...just a great neighbor. But he recently asked to use my van on a long-distance trip, and I found myself uncomfortable with the idea. Should I just suck it up and let him use it, since he's done so much for me?


Our daughter has a babysitter who has been around her for about 3 years now. We have gotten to know this young woman very well over the years. She has recently starting inviting my husband and I out for dinner or drinks without our child. Is it appropriate to socialize with her, or is it best not to cross that line as her employer?


My husband and I eloped several years ago, which made some members of our family extremely angry with us. We are now about to hit our 10-year mark and were thinking of doing a vow-renewal ceremony and inviting all the family members. Do you think our family will be happy to get an invitation, or will this new "wedding" just open up old wounds?
