Dh works for the Air Force as a civilian/reservist. He hasn't received his official notice yet but we're also in the boat of weekly furlough days and no possibility of overtime. Looking at a pay cut of over $700/month. Budget is definitely going to be tighter, especially since I am also losing my paycheck until August with the new baby coming and then school will be out and we aren't paid over the summer (private preschool).

Re: Anyone else affected by the Sequestration/ Furlough?

Dh got a notice yesterday that they are pushing back the Furlough til the end of April. One more month to try to figure it all out.

There is a new bill congress is trying to pass to move DoD spending around so most of it is in the payroll part. I think it passed, so they may avoid furloughs there. Tried to find a link but it's too early.

Boo I'm being hit by the furlough as a DOD contractor one day a week for 11 weeks starting July 8th. And we were finally going to buy a house and think about ttc. And my contact is up July 30 for renewal or bid. My DH is also a contractor no word on furlough for him yet.
