Gotta love it.
G-man received the e-mail yesterday stating that the federal budget has not been approved yet for the new fiscal year (Oct 1), and there is a resolution that has not been passed yet to keep things afloat for a little bit. However, there is always a chance that at some point....a government shut down will happen.
For G-man, he is essential personnel. No sitting at home for him. He has to go to work. He just won't get paid right away for it. If he works, he has to get paid....it just may take months before we see it. Isn't that just ducky....
Additionally....if there is a shut down....he can't use his annual leave (vacation time). Time off is unpaid. Well, he has 130 hours of use or lose that needs to be used before the end of the year. No idea what will happen to that. PLUS, that would mean he wouldn't get paid for time he takes off to come home for the holidays. Super duper. In that case...will he still come home? Probably not.
I asked him about his 5 days administrative leave that he gets when we move. Not sure about that either. That time doesn't come from his vacation leave...that comes from the office budget. So again, if he came to help with the move....he may not get paid. So possibly I will have to do the move on my own. This is getting even better and better as I type it!
I know some of this is just over reaction. None of this is settled. But in my already raw state, the idea that we would be without pay (we have savings and EF, so it isn't like we have NOTHING.....and we would eventually get paid)....and trying to sell the house at a loss....and he may not be here for the holidays....or for a move....
It is pouring rain here (needed as we had a dry summer). There is some house stuff I am trying to talk to the realtor about. Tonight is our activity night, so lots of running today.
It is just too much today. Too much.
