At the end

Although it’s actually another day I’m still going to post because it’s the end of my day- and what a day it was!

Found our septic tank – had to remove most of the deck but it has never been leveler! lol 😂

The previous owners had actually poured the footings of the deck right on top of the tank! We were lucky enough to get it pumped today and discovered that it was very full but not overflowing. Dodged a stink bomb there! Just so you know septic tanks should be pumped at least every ten years. Our house is twenty-seven years old and had never been done. 😱

Adventures in homesteading

When we bought our house it came with a warped deck to match my since of humor. We’ve had to tear it down to get to our septic tank – it needs to be pumped.

As we started digging for the lid we discovered a very narrow top. I called my dad for backup and we learned that our tank -since we found it so close to the top probably had an extension on it. It might be another two feet down. Also it was probably an eight by five size.

This upsets me a little – knowing that my septic tank has a bigger foot print than our master bathroom. I really don’t know it I can wait ten years to pay off the house so I can improve it.

OCD overload

I’m pretty sure that I get obsessive compulsive about order because of the lack of it in my Mind. I figure if I can organize everything around me then my Mind will naturally fall in line. Dirk likes it when I’m like this- to a point- as long as I eventually clean up my piles and don’t spend too much money on containing it. lol 😂
