So we've been waiting for a couple of checks for a long time now. I believe I mentioned that on Thursday. It's been pretty bad, but we've been managing to get by. In all these weeks of having to figure out how we're going to eat, feed our cat,
First came on the fifth, when we found our check did not come, and therefore we didn't have rent money. At all. Rent is a really big important thing, after all.
The second came this morning, when Donald came to talk to us about Disneyland. I may have mentioned that we're planning to go this weekend for Han's birthday. But Donald knew we've been having problems because our money hasn't been coming, and he suggested that we might have to stay home for our own good. (He did at least say we'd be missed.) He's absolutely right of course. But take away my food and I'll deal. Take away Disneyland... It was just too much. (If that does happen, at least we won't have to worry about Oreo, though.)
So today was a day for needing of chocolate, and fortunately the bishop was still doing tithing settlement, and there was still some See's candy around. Athena asked the bishop if we could each take a chocolate, and they were soooo good. The bishop's wife is my new visiting teacher, so we've been talking a lot, and the bishop is a freelancer, too, so she completely understands where we're coming from. It's nice to have someone really understand that we're not just being irresponsible. Maybe a little irresponsible with The Princess and the Frog. But still.
We may attempt doing something with the Hershey's cocoa we still have plenty of, but we're not sure what. I'm sure we'll come up with something. And now the pizza's done, so it's time to go.
Today I'm thankful for Mom being kind enough to bring us food ingredients (which are also food, technically), extra chocolates from the bishop, people who really understand the situation, still having three days to get a check before deciding whether or not we're going to Disneyland, and finding a new dungeon in Final Fantasy X-2.
