Like a good Catholic girl, I went to this site late last year and made note of all the holy days of obligation in my calendar. These are special days when you gotta go to church. Considering I go to church regularly (above and beyond the Christmas and Easter Catholics) and I attend during the holy days, I swear I deserve extra credit. So where, God, is my little rugrat? I’m teasing, I believe in God’s plan!
We are currently on insemination #4. In a previous post, I wrote about my $400+ Kaiser bill. Well I called them today and gave them a piece of my mind, starting with the fact that the column indicating how much I had paid didn’t stack up with my receipts. Also, there were obvious inconsistencies with their charges. “Why is it that an IUI costs $125 during one visit, yet the exact same procedure at the same facility costs $89 on a different day?” I contested. The rep calmly replied she would certainly look into it. “While you’re at it, please stop sending me notifications that I’m past due with my payments. I will not pay one cent until Kaiser gets their act together. Can you go ahead and make a note of that somewhere in my account?”
Oh yes back to the house of God. I’m at Old St. Mary’s for the 5:15pm mass for the Assumption which is the Virgin Mary’s assumption to heaven after she dies. While I’m there, I start thinking about the deaths at the Sikh temple, praying for those who died, and plotting my exit strategy if a cuckoo gun man came in. What has this world come to with so many senseless deaths, yet people insist on their right to bear arms. OMG. Really? Sick. It makes me sick.
I swear I would vote for any candidate who actually took actionable steps to control this issue. Instead I’ve got to choose between the lesser of two evils. Even though my CPA said I was essentially screwed tax-wise if Obama got re-elected, I cannot and will not vote for any candidate who is pro-life. It feels strange to write that because that means, what, that I’m anti-life? No! I believe in freedom and the rights of people to make their own decisions about how their affairs should be handled. White men (both political and religious), hands off women’s bodies.
