No time for moping and mopping

With many politicians here in the Washington DC area enthusiastically ready to shut down the Government, I was almost hoping they would. A few days of forced time off to inflict DIY on my house and mull over what I should do next with my life seemed appealing.

The last-minute settlement has delayed not avoided the final showdown despite Press assertions to the contrary.

It doesn’t matter to me now because I got formal notification on Friday that I am on the “Essential Personnel” list.

The best I can expect if a shutdown still occurs next week is lighter traffic.

The funny thing is that I’m not a Government employee, I’m a consultant. Someone likes me apparently. Darn. And thank you. In that order.
