Howdy! Well, I was supposed to still be sleeping this early in the morning, but because of the Partial Government Shutdown, the rest of my leave was cancelled & this is my week to be an essential employee. Oh, joy! Can you tell I'm excited?!? NOT! I have not worked the week between Christmas & the New Year in a long, long time.
If this shutdown drags on, I may not get my first January paycheck at all, or if I do, it will likely be late. It just boggles my mind how leadership's lack of decision-making skills can punish others who have done nothing wrong. People just don't want to compromise anymore.
Please pray for our country's leaders. They certainly need it!!!!
So sorry you have to deal with this. I think of a scene in Fiddler on the Roof where someone asks the rabbi if there's a blessing for the Czar. His response ' "May God bless and keep the Czar - FAR AWAY FROM US!" 415 days ago
