What a crappy day...literally
So things have been going too good, lately. I knew disaster was waiting to happen. That's sad that I have that expectation, but I know how things roll in my life. This past week, I have been so busy, working a lot to save money for my upcoming vacation. and everything was falling into place. Until two days ago. My sewer pump failed. Third time in the past 4 years. Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too. Well, in 2006-the first time I replaced it-it was a whopping 450 dollars...2010-inflation stuck it's tongue out at me, and it cost me 980 dollars! I say just let the sewage run into my back yard-free fertilizer. But I think the city might condemn me for that. Those things are a necessary evil and it has really made for not a great day. But I had a choice to make-be able to take a shower or go on vacation with a nice cushion of green. I made the sensible choice and replaced the pump. Hopefully, I can still vacate...it'll just have to be with a lot less cushion. I'm seeing a lot of frozen pizza for the next week. Now I gotta go catch up on some blog reading.
