Speak of the devil

Last week I mentioned how thankful I was that ONLY our a/c froze up and poured water from our ceiling during our cocktail party...it could have been worse, like if our septic tank had backed up.

Cut to yesterday.
Hey, I was only 9 days off. 

Sh*t happens.

  1. Merry Christmas! lol

    I will never forget the septic tank guy getting out of his truck eating a sandwich when he arrived at my house years ago. He continued to eat as he worked!

  2. Ha! One Christmas quite a few years ago we had to have a new drain field dug for our septic tank. When Donnie found out the cost he came in the house and said, "Guess what you're getting for Christmas, kids!" The neighbors thought we were getting a pool. Yeah. right.

    The little dark area down the middle makes it look like it's overflowing,
    , probably full of sh*t . hee
    Crappy Holidays

  4. Uh..that's not honey in there. Bleh. That is just awful. We don't have those here but I can imagine it's not fun.

  5. Well crap.... That is one of my worries since we also have a septic tank. :-( We had to dig up the lines from our (old) house all the way to the street since they were full of tree roots. Not fun and not something I want to go through again... Hope it all got cleaned up quickly!

  7. Hope it's not true about things happening in threes. You've been through enough already.

  12. We just had the honey wagon out ourselves. Still something is not quite right. They may have to come out again. Apparently we are full of it....

  14. Nope. Never EVER joke about your septic system, Murphy's law, right? You don't want to tease the Gods and tempt them to....

  15. We had our pit pumped last summer. It wasn't acting up, but it had been 7 years, so we figured it was overdue!

  16. Well, that's three right? Hopefully it's all over now!

  17. Hello There, OH My Gosh----sorry to hear this! Speaking of septic tanks, my son/wife had a problem with theirs (terrible) --and it cost them $500 to get it fixed. They were NOT happy.

    Sorry I haven’t been around much lately. I do try to read blogs—but just haven’t commented very much lately like I usually try to do. Please don’t give up on me. Hopefully my life will be back to ‘normal’— whatever that is (ha), sometime in January.

    I did get a cortisone shot in my knee —which has helped with the pain somewhat. In January, I will most likely have meniscus tear surgery…. BUT—in the meantime, I plan to have a fantastic Christmas —and hopefully get to see my kids/grands… God is Good.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  19. Nooooooo! I was driving behind a septic truck the other day that had a sign that read, "A flush is better than a full house!" Our septic guy is one of my favorite humans. Money very, very well spent.
