Deskbound for Now
Well, it appears that my traveling days may be over for awhile. Our outgoing governor has called for all Departments to cut their budgets by 2%. This may not sound like much, but a vast majority of our department's budget is tied up in salaries so cuts have to come from other sources. Probably the hardest hit area of our budget is travel. I'm awaiting word on a number of trips I had scheduled and fear that they may all, or nearly all, be cut. I have plenty to do around the office, but I have to admit that I feel like a bird whose wings have been clipped.
