Life on Furlough – 10 days in

The furlough is here and things just got real. October 1st came I went into work in my jeans, a button up and a fab pair of Embellished Junk Chuck's by From Mi To You. I spent 2 hrs in the office, got my letter, signed it, laughed with my colleagues and headed home.  The subway was packed like it normally is for rush hour, only it was 10AM and most of the federal employees were headed home unsure of when we get to return. Now what am I going to do? How long am I going to do it? I knew this was coming but they normally swoop down at the ninth hour and save the day.  That didn't happen this time, so now what? Now this is only day one, so I wasn't about to become the maid and do ALL the hundreds of things I need to do or want to do around the house. Besides if I did my Babe would expect that every day. =)
