If more Ebola victims turn up, we can't all quarantine ambulances and deputies and places.
I guess it was good to see a place not expecting Ebola to have to get its shit together. Even if they sent out people to wash away vomit without biohazard clothing and a pressure washer.
Last weekend LO and I went to my cousin's kid's baptism. We went mainly to support her since my uncle passed a few months ago. LO and I got to the church early as I misread the invite and I overly worried about the Eagles traffic (I'll blame divine intervention, for if I ever felt my grandmother was watching over us, it was last Sunday) so we were there for the whole Mass. LO hasn't been to Mass in a long while so in a way it was a good thing for her to experience it again with family around.
The Church is in a bustling part of South Philly, and neither LO or I could figure out why the Mass was so sparsely attended. The priest being about my age, the church big enough, etc and the Mass was a "new" Mass with modern music. Well, we found out why when the priest started on his homily about the family. HOLY FUCKING SHIT, this guy was no Pope Francis. He went on a fire and brimstone harangue for a good 15 minutes about abortion, contraception, natural family planning, abortion, selfishness, how good it was to be poor and LOs favorite part, how the children of divorced parents will be doing drugs in the street.
Basically, fuck that guy. No wonder why his congregation is so dead looking. Any hope that I had about LO maybe going to Church were thrown out the window.
So for those of you following the car saga, we ended up going over budget for a 2009 Toyota RAV4 from a dealer my brother uses. The pricing was just about the same if we went for an older model (we were looking at 2005/2006s initally) with an extended warranty. It was about 1k under Kelly Blue Book retail. This one has a 1yr dealer warranty. The car was well used (traded in 5 years to the month it was bought), and it had been maintained solely at the dealer we bought it from with all maintenance records. I checked the fluids and such. Oil looked good, etc. I even checked the VIN on safercar.gov and no open recalls on the car. (Previous cars we looked at did have open recalls.)
The only thing about that we've found so far is that I was behind LO driving home and I noticed the muffler looked like it was loose and maybe the pipe to the muffler looks rusted. So that and I think I will take the car out this weekend to make sure I don't hear any other noises.
Forgot to mention that my other uncle, one who was uncomfortable about my divorce initially, told me this past weekend I was doing a good job with LO and wondered if I had met any nice men yet. Heh.
