It’s hashtag legit.

News of the government shutdown is everywhere! All political mumbo jumbo aside, it’s a sucky situation. Instead of being editorial about the issue myself, I thought I would share with you articles that have helped me understand the situation (as I’m a political layman). To be honest, I’m still wrapping my head around this whole mess!

This morning, I spoke to my husband for the first time in a long while this morning. He’s been in the field and away from the phone. It’s interesting because he knew absolutely nothing about this – all the way in Korea – way to keep the military informed!

    • It really is! I’m glad I was able to catch him, while he was out! I’m sure news would have spread, but it still would have been crazy!
