Itâ€™s been pouring for over 2 days now. We got our backyard river back yesterday morning. The alarm on the septic went off intermittently starting about 0100. (Was NOT happy about that!)
Still all kinds of warnings and watches around our area. Dog and I have to wear our ponchoâ€™s for our walks. Driveway is really flooded (gotta fix that).
Otherwise, SSDD around here. We still havenâ€™t finished the MILA but did get out and buy the pedistal/sink ($70) and medicine cabinet ($120 all at Loweâ€™s). Then we spent $60+ at Home Depot for 12×12 ceramic tiles for the MILA bathroom floor. Now SWMBO really doesnâ€™t have any excuses for not getting down there and getting that done!
Weâ€™re on the high side of broke and sheâ€™s looking for a job. Locally this time. Hopefully at the Naval Hospital so sheâ€™d have only a 20 minute commute. Itâ€™s too bad she has to look for work but she canâ€™t retire right now. Itâ€™d be nice if she could. (I gotta win the lotto! But that would mean remembering to go buy a ticket!)
I canâ€™t get a job. Iâ€™ve tried but most people hiring feel Iâ€™m too old. They donâ€™t SAY that, but you can see it in their eyes. Unless I want to be a greeter at Walmart. Then, Iâ€™ve been on SS too long. Iâ€™d have to pay all that back if I got a well paying job someplace. Not happening.
So, had this 5 ft tall pine tree trying to push my RV aside in the RVâ€™s parking spot. Had. Itâ€™s now SWMBOâ€™s first Christmas Tree in several years in the Library. (We donâ€™t really go in much for â€œChristmasâ€ stuff or decorations since we have no kids or grandkids hanging around. And this year weâ€™re really too broke to indulge.)
Got out and pulled the filter in the septic and rinsed it. Thatâ€™ll be a green (GREEN!) spot in the yard come summer! Took a couple of the end-caps off the drainage field thingie and turned the pump back on. Alarm went off and when the water quits coming out of the pipe itâ€™ll be time to put the end-caps back on. Doesnâ€™t even really smell that bad since it comes from the â€œcleanâ€ side of the septic. You learn how to do these things when you own a home. (Well, renting from the bank. You never really OWN a home. Just try not paying your taxes sometime and see who really owns your home.)
Anywho, thatâ€™s it.
