Step 1 (See Chapter 1) of the Lawn Cleanup Project ran into a light – but steady – rain. Bummer …
So instead I get to enjoy a little Mike Time in a house that’s actually empty. It will only last a few hours, so no time to spare. I feel so guilty.
(Really, really tried to say that with a straight face.)
Loading some free library CD music up to the iPod, concentrating on Joe Cocker this time around. Then maybe a little reading.
Will certainly be wondering if the idiots D.C. – on both sides of the aisle – will get their acts together and pass a budget.
Generally, I agree with the Republican goal of reducing and bringing under control Federal spending. But when the jobs of 800,000 civilian employees (Me included … And who – by the way – are already under a potential five-year pay freeze) are at stake, I get a bit annoyed at reports that policy riders (EPA, NPR, etc.) are the real worm in the pie.
Must be too much to ask, I guess.
And this is taking way too long.
Outta here … For the sake of Mike Time.
