So, fun times in the Office and Rectory this past week! If you’ve been calling and having trouble getting an answer or a call back… Patricia was out sick all week and we all definitely missed her. Good news though, she did not have the flu! Bad news, we’re not sure which day she’ll return this week. I also just got a note from Ms. Vee who’s just had a great vacation in Hawaii but has come home ill and she won’t be in this week either! So, be sure to put them on your prayer list!
We also had to buy a new washer / dryer this past week! The washer, only 4 years old, decided to spring a weird leek in the seal into an oil thing (that’s the highly technical term), which ultimately caused a quickly progressive parts failure that totally killed it. Repair cost $900 for non warranty work! Was the seal covered by any warranty, of course not! I’m really disappointed, it’s a Maytag too! No wonder the repair man is bored, no one can afford to fix them! The dryer wasn’t awesome either, although it was working. So, having collected and saved money for repair and maintenance over these past few months, after some deliberation and price checking on new and used machines… we decided that we were able and ought to buy a new set (not Maytag), which was on sale and has a rebate! They will arrive on this week… so if you thought that maybe Fr Carlos, Fr. Dave or I smelled a little weird… now you know why! LOL just kidding! Oh, we also found a good home for the dryer, saving someone else from the unexpected breakdown and purchase of an appliance.
