Just in case you are interested in reading about the impact of this shutdown on the economy (SPOILER: $24 BILLION LOST!) check out this article:
After sitting around the house for a couple days watching CNN like it was my job I finally decided to try and make the most of my time off and do something! Because in reality, I will probably NEVER have this much time off in a row again before retirement (scary thought!).
Here is what I did with my unexpected free time in photo form...enjoy!
|Celebrated the soon to be arrival of baby Ellie with my childhood friend Annie and my mom!|
|I got an iPhone and promptly took my first photo ;)|
|Went to the Seattle Aquarium with this cutie!|
|Watched the Sounders get their butts kicked :(|
|Went to the Seattle Symphony for the first time.|
Hiked up to Tiger Mountain!
|Babysat an adorable miniature pincher...much to the dismay of Stacey!|
AND...on October 17 all things resumed in the real world and I went back to work. It is good to be back!
And maybe now that I'm back to my normal routine I actually blog about something...no promises :).
Question: Did the government shutdown affect any of you??
