An Unwelcome Vacation  

The US government is shutdown and I am furloughed. I don't know whether I am going to get paid when we will finally be called back. So, hubby and I (he also works for the government, as does my son (he is a contractor), my son's sister-in-law, his mother-in-law, and other members of his in-laws. We can get by for a little while on our savings, and that means that we will have to dip into our retirement money.

It bothers me what this shutdown will do to our country and economy. But I am just small potatoes.

On another note, I started watching Breaking Bad. I am on Season 2, Episode 7. So many more to go. The show is amazing. Why didn't I discover it earlier?

Today, my dog Bailey is 13. I gave her lots of hugs. Well at least the dogs are happy that we are home all day long. *sigh*

Bailey looks quite content there!
