Sometimes you VACATION sometimes you STAYCATION, this year is more of the latter. We'll take a day here and there or an overnight once or twice, but overall this summer is more a staycation.
All in all and everything aside; EVERYTHING, we're trying to be really thankfull...or TANKFUL!
A tank emptied actually, and then removed, if I'm going to be honest. Confused, bewildered, I understand. That's the feeling I had when I first got the news that our Septic Tank needed to be replaced, followed by, "Whaaaaaat?", and then, "No, no, no, that can't be?"!
My husband replied, "I know, it's shitty isn't it?".
I'm thinking, well, YES, it is shitty and that's without even thinking about the fact it's shitty punny!
The whole notion this is how things are going really stinks. I know, another punny knowing the context...or content!
Of course the #$@&%*! was the first thing that came to my mind and may have slipped across my lips and into the atmosphere, but then I settled with the reality that that, is just the way it is.
So the day comes round and the old tank is emptied; with very little stench in the air, and over the course of the day the new one installed. With it all unfolding before us and our visiting family, it all makes for an "exciting" day of sorts; yes of sorts. The goings on makes our home the centre of interest on our street! OK, there are only two homes on our street and this particular week we'd provided all of the interest. One day prior we had a moving truck in our driveway as our son and his partner prepared to head off to new adventures.
I have to give the workers on the job credit as in between each load of dirt taken away they have to wait for the truck to return to proceed, just adding to the shitiness of the days work. You know, sitting around doing nothing and not being able to stop yourself from thinking there is anything you would rather be doing! A long day.
At the end of it all, despite the disruption to our yard, home, LOL...toileting practices, and yes, vacation plans coming to fruition, it's now done and we have a shiny new, empty(ish) tank installed and a new canvas of fresh disruptedness to play with! OH, and that first flush....excitement and excited relief, it all works! HAPPY STAYCATION!
THE BIG REVEAL!
OH t's a Brand New Septic Tank!!!!!
Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, WOW...and I thought this would be so shitty!!!!!

Speaking of shoes and the next thing, someone named Chuck Taylor is suddenly part of the conversation and I think, "Whose Chuck?...
I don't think I've ever carried my cell phone in my bra; well perhaps once. It just seems awkward and not very practical; especia...
When something truly awful suddenly becomes the lesser of evils because you've experienced something of the unimaginable and survived it...
