Going out on a limb here

But, calm the f**k down. It's a sequester, not a Great Depression.

No soup kitchens.
No lines for bread.
No dust bowls.

Commissaries will be closed an additional day.
DoD employees will get furloughed - they still have jobs.
Some people have longer hours or longer deployments. Yeah. It sucks.

But, other shit can suck more.

At this point, it's not going away. So, time to man up and deal.

Dh could get extended in Kuwait. Sucks, but bitching about it isn't going to change anything if he does end up being extended.
Otherwise, my dad will be furloughed. But as you said, he still had a job.

Don't get me wrong, I hate all this crap. But, going on and on like some people have been doing just seems pointless.

Wait. Whining ISN'T a magic wand and abra-cadabra all our problems away? Well there goes my theory on life.

Really though. I agree. What happens happens. Just gotta learn to go with the flow. Or roll with it because go with the flow reminds me getting swept out to sea... lol

I agree. Not the best, but also not the end of the world.

I just heard that my husbands old ship that was supposed to be dry docked (sp) is now being sent on a deployment instead! When people's lives are being risked to save money, its hard not to bitch!
