Preparing for One Week's Pay

April 8th, 2011 at 06:32 am

I'm not completely against the government shutting down. If it needs to be done to move our country forward then so be it. However, it appears we will have a delay in pay for as long as it is shut down. We should get back pay for all days of the shut down once it is over.

The really good news? My husband is back on US soil!! I got the news last night. He will be back home as soon as possible. There is still out processing paper work to be done.

So...to figure out how to handle a lack of pay in the short term. Obviously, we do have emergency funds that we can rely on. Once we get paid we will reimburse ourselves. I know not everyone can do this. For that, I feel sad.

    Well, I for one am sorry that I won't be able to see the glorious reunion on the Today Show and you won't be able to have an all-expense paid trip to NYC. Great news about hubby being back!! Thanks for dealing with life without him, and thanks to DH for keeping our country safe. (hugs)

    Yay! I'm glad to hear your hubby is back on US soil.

    Boo! I hope the shutdown doesn't last too long ...

    Woo-hoo! for DH being back!!...I, too, am waiting on news of the shutdown. In the meantime, we are supposed to report to work on Monday and they'll let us know, although, being the new person in the dept (think: the one who is still taking on the job training), I know I would be the logical choice to be sent home... oh, well... God will provide.

    It sounds like a last minute deal was reached, and the shutdown isn't going to happen! Yay!
