Beep Beep Mm Beep Beep Yeah

Am in a somewhat more acquiescent mood though nothing has really changed and we are going to be very, very broke for the foreseeable future, the most obvious result of which is that we're not going to L.A. this summer and I won't get to see various relatives and friends, nor the Long Beach Aquarium, nor the Rose. Sigh. I did, however, get a big reality check from a friend, whose mother had cancer that they thought had been caught which has apparently spread to her liver. On the grand scale of things that can go wrong, car trouble and financial difficulties are extremely minor. Must remember to count blessings more often. Sorry for all the whining.

In between taking kids to sports and birthday parties, we spent most of the day crunching numbers and looking at minivans. Anyone with any strong facts/opinions/stories about the Toyota Sienna vs. the Honda Odyssey, would you let me know? Please do not lecture me on buying American. If Ford made cars that didn't fall apart around people, we would not be in this situation. Our other vehicle is a Plymouth Voyager with which we have been very happy, but we've put over 100,000 miles on it in less than six years with two cross-country trips, and since Chrysler doesn't make this model any more and the Town and Country has fewer benefits for higher prices, it's not our first choice, or second.

Tomorrow my in-laws are coming. It's supposed to be warm and gorgeous and I think we are going to the waterfront to see the Amistad.

GIP, which is at least partially ashinae's fault.
