Government Shutdown 2018

Guess what, friends?





I’m officially FURLOUGHED! Yes, I’m a federal government employee that is affected by the shutdown.

However, I’m in a great position. I always save for a rainy day and I’ve been prepared for possible shutdowns since back in 2008/2009. I was affected by the shutdown in 2013, and I distinctly recall getting so much done and enjoying some much needed time at home.

Basically, I’m not hurting. That being said, I know that there are a lot of American citizens that are negatively affected by these events. They have my deepest sympathy, because I know (from personal experience) that nothing is quite as uncomfortable as uncertainty. For their sake, I hope that the feds are up and running again soon.

But me? I’m feeling fine and making the most of this downtime. Let’s see how much I can get done while I’m off!
