Today is the last day of the month....which is our once-a-month payday. Because Justin missed a full week of work last month due to having the flu, and his work no longer gives them sick time unless you bank overtime, today's payday has been looooonnnnnngggg awaited. LONG. AWAITED.
Which means we're basically out of food...and tonight was slated to be our big stock-up grocery trip.
But, Justin's grandpa is coming into town unexpectedly...which means that instead, we'll all gather for dinner and enjoy each others' company.
Which is a BLESSING. I love that this is just the way things are with both sides of the family. Though, I do sometimes wish we had a bit more notice. But, that's life. Sometimes we don't get notice, and we just have to decide what's more important--grocery shopping, or family gatherings a la Parenthood.
Of course, the latter wins. It's a crazy, hectic, awesome blessing. But, I'm still trying to figure out what we'll eat for the next 24 hours until we DO go grocery shopping :)
