What to do when the $hitter$ full


Saturday, April 20, 2013

No joke. The septic system is completely and utterly full. Main tank AND overflow tank... so last night after dinner, what we THOUGHT was a clogged main line thanks to my youngest's poop wiping mitt...was in fact NOT that at all (and I apologized to him for accusing him of the clog - trust me, I did).

So now what do we do, besides wait for the truck to come and pump us out....we called last night too, at 6pm, but they were basically done for the night and it was raining - can't rightly blame them now, can I. So they called back and said they'd get to us late morning (which is now) or early afternoon (which is approaching fast).

Meantime, back at the ranch - my youngest has his opening day of baseball parade...and I am missing it.

Meantime, back at the ranch - I cannot drink my water, because it will make me pee...and I can't really because where oh where will it go?

Meantime, back at the ranch - since I cannot drink water, I cannot really exercise, because then I want my water even more...and that is not happening.

Meantime, back at the ranch - I really need to pee, like every 10 minutes now - and I know it's psychosematic - but still.... it's ANNOYING!!!!!!

So, here I am ... waiting... needing to pee (or at least I think I am)... can't do much about anything at all because everything I usually do requires water ...and therefore a functioning septic system... which is down for the count right now.

I have done the FB.

I have done the Spark reading.

I have done some socializing.

So here I am.... beotch blogging about my full poop tank and the fact that I cannot do ANYTHING at all.

So now I will count my blessings.

a) today is Saturday and thank goodness I don't have to work...that would have made today ever MORE better

b) while I may be missing my child's parade and possibly first bb game of the season, it's kinda chilly out, and I am cold, so the blanket on the couch is going to be welcome in a few minutes.

c) we are probably going to have pizza tonight, especially if the $hitter is still full to the brim and I can't do dishes (which are half-done in the washer btw - that is NOT going to be pretty if it doesn't drain soon)

d) we ate ALL of the leftover in the house for lunch - yay! no waste!

e) I didn't have to do my hair today...or shave my legs. A nice break if you kinda think about it.

f) I just got a call from the cesspool guy!!!! and he will be here by 1pm!!!! YAAAAAAY!!!

OK everyone - now I need some good vibes for this:
-they find the overflow cap without needing to rip up my patio and
- they pump out everything and that is that...done for another few years

SWEET! I can't wait to PEE!!!!!!!

    Omg! Not letting a Sparker pee should be against the law! And I totally get the mind game of wanting to pee when you can't! Mental torture!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  Good luck! If its been raining buckets and buckets rain can back flow thru lateral lines filling tank. After last years' drought this problem occurring in Midwest with recent rains. Those of us with septic tanks can sympathize with you!!!!!
