Just a brief note about the furlough situation. I am a civil servant so, as you may have seen on the news, I am among the multitudes of folks taking one day per week of unpaid vacation. For me - I can only speak for myself - I would have preferred the government had simply cut my pay by 20 percent and told me to take it or leave it. The truth is, thankfully, I am in a position that my pay as a government civil servant isn't my only source of income., and frankly, we can adsorb this hit easier than many of my co-workers.
What is hurting me is the impact and stress I have on doing a 50 hour a week job in only 32 hours. I am forbidden by federal law from working a minute over 32 hours per week, and honestly, in spite of what you may think about government civil servants, my wife can tell you that I don't do my 8 hours a day - and done. What it amounts to for me is, on Monday, I'll go in with even more to catch up on and only 32 hours to do it in.
I already have the wood for the next set of two (Eva would like at least 8 chairs for Stoney Island), but I think I may have to take a break and try a different project just to shake things up. Next, I think we are going to try to build the Cornhole boards. You can see the concept here.
