It's not an easy task. Explaining the government shutdown can really take it out of you.

So disappointed. Live in Maryland and heading to San Francisco (10/12) & Los Angeles (10/16). Tickets to Alcatraz (shut down). Been with my partner for 15+ years and getting married on 10/15 at SF City Hall (hopefully it won't shut down). I am a breast cancer survivor and this was a trip to celebrate 5 years since my mastectomy. Hope Government gets things worked out.
