It’s a bitterly cold Monday and I stayed up too late watching football last night, so it’s hard to get moving.
Jim has the day off for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, since he’s a federal employee. But also because he’s an employee of Uncle Sam, his office will be affected by the ongoing shut-down, beginning next week. It’s a situation that’s been weighing on us (to be fair, mostly him).
Here is a MLK quote that helps a bit:
If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you to go on in spite of all. And so today I still have a dream.
People have it way worse than we do, certainly, though I sure do wish that the folks in charge could work this out. And, whew, the Patriots won.
