 I was just speaking with a friend and her hubby got the dreaded email. It said that it looks like the budget won't get passed, and they won't be granting any extenstions. If this happens the last pay check we will recieve is our April 1st pay. I am just curious what your family is gonna do to cope? 

I am not sure what we will be doing. We live 6 miles from base and my hubbies bicycle is broke. Obviously if this happens we won't be able to afford gas. I do buy food in bulk so we should be good for a little while. We have no savings because every last cent we had went to paying off bills. We were starting to get a head so I was gonna start putting some a side for emergencies.

I'm not worried about it. If we don't get paid we'll get through it until we do...

Well, we'll be able to get through one pay check without being paid. But not more than that.
