I am not really in to politics and I rarely watch the news but when word starts floating around post, everyone knows about it!! Well I am really worried about what is about to happen to this Government! Just found out that tomorrow is going to be the last day all Commissaries (grocery stores on Military posts) is going to be open until the Government financial mess is figured out! If we lived in the USA it would be no problem because we could go to WalMart or a grocery store, but this is the only place we shop for groceries since going off post means going to a German grocery store that we cant even pronounce. All of post is going to go stock up on food and it is going to be a mad house tomorrow ..Ive already been told by a few friends that the Commissary is already out of a lot of things!
And to top it all off, there still isn't
word if Military service members will be getting paid on the 15th! So
here we are, stocking up on a whole bunch of groceries and not knowing
if there will be another pay check coming in! Man, this is what we get
for joining the Army! Thanks Government!! -just a rant from me, an Army
wife scared that the bills won't be paid.. I mean we get free housing
since we live on post but what about gas, car insurance, school tuition, food, cable/internet, phone and everything else!! I hope the
Government can figure out this budget mess and QUICK!!
UPDATE- I just checked Steve's LES (what says
what his next paycheck will be) and we are only getting half of a
paycheck! Talked to a few other wives and they are only getting half
also!! Looks like this will be the last payday until the budget is
resolved! I'm starting to get nervous about the future!
UPDATE 2- The Government finally decided to do
another temporary spending plan that will be active until Thursday! So
hopefully since the Government didn't shut down that it means we get a
full paycheck on the 15th! Crossing our fingers because we want to start
saving as much money as possible so we have a 'just in case' fund if
the Gov't does eventually shut down which is still a possibility because
they still don't know when they will have the spending plan set in
