Countdown to Government Shutdown of Doooommmmm!

Yeah. So I have not been writing much because there hasn't been much to write about. T is going through a thing right now that includes lots of tantrums and drama. F has decided this week that he has an opinion, and it's mostly not my opinion. I've been learning lots about diabetes and congenital abnormalities.

Ry has been busy at work.  That may change pretty dramatically soon, though. It seems that there is a pretty good chance that the government is going to shut down on March 4.  Unpaid vacation time! That is exactly what we need right now!!

We don't know if he will be furloughed or not. We also don't know if he'd get paid for the time missed when he went back to work. We're sitting right in the center of a steaming pile of We Don't Know. Those of you who know me well know how good I am at I don't know. But hey, we may get to enjoy my spring break together!

Wow, this post has lots of italics and exclamation points. That must mean that I've exceeded my snark threshold and should go to bed. So. Good night ya'll.

Yeah, we here on the contractor side aren't looking forward to the shut-down either. I hope it ends up like it did last time, where gov't workers were reimbursed for the unpaid leave. (Not that that does anything for the contractors, but whatever.)

I can never get enough of the Wilfred Brimley lolcat. Too funny.

My word verification word is "blert". That's awesome.

Will you be furloughed if the government shuts down? That seems unfair!

I was already generally annoyed with the current state of politics. Now I'm personally annoyed on your behalf.

I hope this all works out okay.

Thanks Becky. I'm sure it'll be fine ... it's just not a time we really want to be dipping into our savings.
