Well, the US Government has shut down, and whomever you blame, I am still one of the 800,000 federal employees furloughed. After a Tuesday filled with shut down activities and moping, I can be happy about two things:
- I was scheduled to work from Rhode Island for two weeks beginning September 30, so I am home with my husband rather than alone in Colorado.
- I remembered to bring an embroidery project with me. It is small, simple and repetitive and will be a Christmas present when finished. It may be just the thing to distract me and calm my nerves a little.
Between the embroidery and planning for my husband's birthday party this weekend, I may succeed in keeping my mind occupied with happy thoughts. Keep your fingers crossed though that the furloughs don't last too long. I don't want to run out of hand work before I can go back to work work!
