Another What Next

It was raining a lot of this morning. I glanced out the window and was surprised to see there was snow mixed in with the rain. Not much later, it was all snow. It didn’t last long and there was no accumulation but it was pretty to watch.

I haven’t gotten a lot accomplished today. It’s become obvious that the septic tank is past the Rid-X stage and needs a professional cleaning. I called and left voice mail but didn’t get a call back. After several hours, I called again and got an answer.

Years ago, my father-in-law had the septic tank for their house pumped and it cost $50. You can imagine my shock and dismay when I was quoted $300 for the service. I’m not quite ready to do without indoor facilities so there’s not much I can do about it except cough up the money. Lately, I feel like my bank account is hemorrhaging.

Texting my cousin, I asked if that is a reasonable charge and she texted back yes. I feel like crawling under a rock.

Today’s been pretty much a pity party. I’ve done next to nothing all day. The driver of the Honey Wagon is to call me for directions in the morning. Guess I’d better try to get a good night’s sleep so I can cope with whatever will happen tomorrow.

      Not nearly as much as I am!
