In the end, I am sure that the furloughed people will get back pay as well, which would mean he would get paid as a furloughed employee for those days. I cannot imagine that they will not pay 800,000 employees that are furloughed. Too much clout by the federal employee unions to allow that. In the meantime......we wait.

FE HOUSEKEEPING

We have some room changes going on and we have a couple not yet assigned. So, if you will PM any changes and/or assignments to me, I can send out one email to everyone at one time. I think all the dust should settle and rooms be sorted in a week or so. Hope this works for all. We do have all the info we need to get gifts together, just not the info as to where to deliver them all. We will get that AND I will have copies at the 3pm meet incase. So appreciate everyone's help and cooperation with this!

It probably is going to be up to your department head and human resources to decide if they will let you off in that furlough status for the few days and then bring you back in the pay status.
Oh this makes me feel better! It's okay if I don't get paid for those days, as long as we don't have to cancel. Of course, I'd rather get paid, especially since I have over four weeks of vacation to use before the end of the year!

I took the advice of my friend in the same situation and just dove into fish extenders this weekend. Certainly kept me busy!! My goodness, the days are flying by, we'll be waving goodbye to Miami in no time soon.

Question for all you crushing veterans... I am completing the check in process on the website and it asks for port arrival time which is anytime between 1 and 3:30. I am arriving at MIA at 10:30 am. I don't want to just sit around at the port unless there is something to do there. Should I just hang at the airport and have lunch? I know with 2 toddlers that a long wait with nothing to do would be awful painful...

Are you taking Disney transportation?

FE CORRECTIONS

I'm sure there will be more. For now, I had one 3 year old girl listed on the spreadsheet as 3 year old boy. When I send the emails out with the room corrections, I will include any other corrections with details. I don't want to do it here for privacy reasons. Hope that makes sense. Let me know if it does not.

Turtle Farm

I booked the turtle farm through their website. I also e-mailed about transportation. I got a fast response that said transportation to/from port is not guaranteed and is offered on a first come/first serve basis. So, for those who have been to Grand Cayman before, how easy is it to find a cab that can accommodate 5? Has anyone done this before? I am a little worried about getting there and back now.

Have lunch at the airport and then take the Disney shuttle to the port. By the time you have inprocessed you will not have to wait too long to board the ship.

I think if you take Disney transportation they let you check in when you get there. The ship should start loading around 11:45ish and it goes fairly quickly once they start. You will have buffet lunch as soon as you board, so I would not eat a big lunch at the airport.

They will let you check in but you will not be able to board until your boarding group is called. Your boarding number is based on your check in time. But by 1PM you should be able to board when you finish with your paperwork.
