    L: Still feeling okay? Sometimes the effects don't kick in until the next day. *sigh*

    And, now that the dust has settled, so to speak, I have to ask. What is a puffer?

    I assume she means an inhaler.

    Still the same day for me :p

    And yeah, it's an inhaler.

    Managed to have a bit of a mini-freak out at mums, because the grandparents were over for birthday dinner...and while I don't mind telling mum what happened. I'd rather not tell the grandparents until it's long over. But they didn't notice the body damage to the car, and so I didn't have to explain it. I'll call mum later tonight to talk to her about insurance stuff. Still haven't seen BF since this morning, and I'm looking forward to just cuddling him.

    I'm supposed to translate Australian AND keep track of what day it is. A bit much to ask, don't you think? :D

    Take care, L. Be well.

    Thanks P :)

    I do think that inhaler is the common term...but I grew up weird. It's like I call soft drink (pop?) fizzy.
    Like, it's fizzy, but that's what I call it. "Can you get some fizzy from the shop?"

    I am so sorry to hear this. More and more people I know are impacted by the sequester, both government and contract workers. Damn it.

    you know, it may be about funding after all. I for sure don't know your individual contract situation, but we are discussing the possibility to descoping some contract work we have going for us. Is it possible that your company may be facing a similar possibility and your management is taking proactive steps (i.e., decreasing each individual's time charged by 20% versus waiting until the descoping happens and having to lay off workers)? Either way, it sucks.

    I am truly hating what's going on with the budget right now. I sit in meetings all day long, doing 'what if' budget drills and we don't even know what funding amounts we're supposed to be planning for. Not to mention what will happen if we don't have a budget (or at the very least another continuing resolution) by the 27th. Meanwhile, nearly all travel is cut and our young officers are being 'trained' to become better leaders via video teleconferencing, not the most effective means by far. This is NURDRMS speaking, not Major General NURDRMS, but I am disgusted with our Congress.

    Why should we spend our time complaining when we could spend that time fixing it to get what we would prefer.

    It isn't the company's decision. The government is telling them to do it.

    What we were told is that the period of performance for our contract will be extended enough to cover the unused hours at the end of the contract. But our money people aren't sure how that is going to work, or even if it's legal.
