But I was just furloughed.
I don’t know how much all of you internationals have seen of the train wreck that is American politics right now, but on Tuesday we failed to fund our government for the upcoming year (federal year is measured October-September). My job is writing human resources applications for a defense lab. Tonight they told me not to work next week.
I don’t know how long this is going to last. Quite honestly, it’s really scary to be living through this. We’re actually doing all right financially, and my husband has the dominant salary anyway. But none of that really feels secure in the face of all this national turmoil.
We’re committed to daycare for a while, so I expect to be taking a bit of a staycation. I don’t feel much like writing, though, so I don’t know how much you’ll see from the blog.
