"I'm sad. We didn't get a check or a package."

That was Athena's comment on coming back from getting the mail today. See, chibidrunksanzo had told us that she was getting us Christmas/birthday presents, but that one of them didn't come out until the end of January, so we'd be getting them in February. This of course sent us into a flurry of speculation, as about a bazillion things we want came out at the end of January. Almost all of them on January 25, actually.

Still, the package has yet to come, or at least we have yet to be notified of its arrival. And according to Sanzo, it should have arrived by now. Sometimes the mail guy doesn't come to our door or leave a package slip, so when we're expecting stuff we have to go ask the managers if it came. Normally, that's not a problem, since our managers are very very nice. In fact, it's gotten to the point that they'll call us if we haven't come to get our package by the end of the day.

But this month, there's the problem of rent. Since we haven't paid rent, and it's already late, we don't want to go to the office until we have rent. It's not so much that we're afraid they'll yell at us for not having rent (like I said, they're very nice). It's more that we feel like we don't deserve their help if we don't give them what we owe them.

So basically, we just need to get a check. And when we do, we can call our home teacher for a ride to the bank, at the same time reminding him that he said he'd give us his extra printer. Then either he'd bring it (if he's coming from his house), or he'd remember to bring it next time he comes over. We'd go to the bank, deposit the check, come back, pay rent, get our package, talk to the management about a month-to-month lease, come home, print out the stuff we need to print out and get it ready to send, and then apply to work for the Nova Group. And then use whatever is in the package from Sanzo to help us calm down from the scary stuff. Tadah! Much happiness will ensue. And we'll worry about bills later.

And in the meantime, we wait. Or we could just call our home teacher about the printer anyway. We'll see what happens.

Today I'm thankful for iced oatmeal cookies, package slips, freezers, tortillas, and cheese graters.
