The day before the big day and all through the house not a creature was stirring except for MoMo……Spidey Must Die!
“All I want for Christmas is my job”…….the blues being sung by government employees because the government is in a partial shut-down…..
The partial federal shutdown was expected to drag into Christmas as President Donald Trump and congressional leaders remained stuck in a standoff over his border wall with Mexico with no breakthrough Saturday, the AP reports. Vice President Mike Pence arrived on Capitol Hill with a counter-offer to Democrats after the two sides traded offers in recent days. At the White House, Trump heard mixed messages during a lunch with conservative lawmakers; some wanted him to fight for the wall, others preferred to get the government re-opened. The Senate, which had gaveled in with the House for a rare weekend session, adjourned until Christmas Eve, but won’t return for a full session until Dec. 27. Even a temporary measure to keep government running for a few days while negotiations continued seemed out of reach.
The president jettisoned his Florida holiday getaway to his club Mar-a-Lago, tweeting, “I am in the White House, working hard.”
Today will be a short day as well…..things to do…people to see and food to prepare…..other than that it will be a typical day……plus some of my energy has returned and I feel good for the first time in about a week…..the pups are happy for now that I move around and we go for our romp about town……
My granddaughter called and told me I need to make my famous Mac and Cheese for tomorrow….still have not decided on the wine for the big meal…..
I must shut the post down…..if you are out shopping then please be careful and thanx for all the support and loyalty in the past year.
Do not fret….there will be a post tomorrow…..
