What a mess..

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 stone!
