I am a federal employee, so I am being affected by the government shutdown. My coworkers and I have been instructed to still report to work on Monday, and that our supervisors will instruct us on how to navigate through this shutdown. I am a relatively new employee, so I don't know if I will still be paid. However, one of my coworkers said that they were paid (albeit retroactively) after the last shutdown ceased, so that's good to know! I feel bad for the contractors, though, as they won't be paid at all during the shutdown.
That said, I'm still sick. I'm a lot better now, but I still have a really annoying lingering cough. I don't get sick often, but when I do, it's bad (because of my horrible cough).
I'm so glad it's the weekend! Although, since Monday was a holiday, and I missed work on Tuesday (due to being sick), I feel like I'm being spoiled by having 2 days off after such a short work week. :P
My eating has been horrible lately. I need to care more! The only thing I waste money on is eating out (via fast food and sit down restaurants), and this needs to stop (especially because I may need to live off my savings during this government shutdown)! I don't cook, so that's not helping.
