A Levesque #61 - Last Rope

 I can't even begin to describe the feelings that I have built up inside of me lately.  This is going to be personal mainly because God gifted me with the ability to not care about your opinion, and this blog isn't for people who know me per se.  It's mainly for my children so they can look and see everything will work out.   NO MATTER WHAT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE HOPE. I've been struggling. Never have I seen such selfishness. Never have I seen so much greed. Never have I seen so much betrayal.  Never have I seen families ripped apart because of ego and pride.   My house and my family will not be torn apart in the process.  We serve the Lord, and no weapon formed against us will prosper.  We are formed on a rock, not sand to blow away when trials come our way.   Somedays will be hard. Shit, somedays are hard. Somedays it will rain. Then, Somedays the sun will shine so bright you'll forget that it was ever raining.  Never give up on those you love.   Pray for them from

THUMB AREA SEPTIC brought the paddle

I am literally telling you ever have a choice to have someone work on your septic system, it is this company.  So I have been missing for a few days.  I was actually just bursting at the seems to make the poop joke post.  Up shit creek without a paddle doesn't even describe this situation.  

Now the scenario goes:
930 on a school night
Bathtime is over for the 2-year-old terror, kids are packing up for bedtime, and I pull him out and drain the tub.  ALL OF A SUDDEN THE TOILET GURGLES...  I THINK OH MY GOODNESS, a snake is coming out of that pipe. (F.Y.I. it was the septic tank gurgling just in case you don't know I would hate for that to happen to you) I yell for John, and he comes running in.

Next thing you know the baby is naked running around the house because he took off running, the 9 and 10 year old are wailing that they have to go to the bathroom while I was scrambling for the plunger.  The main bathtub, the stand up shower, the kitchen sink are all backing up with water.  So there John, Tom and I are trying to get the water to go down.  We are positive there is POOP EVERYWHERE. Anyone who knows me, well I ended up gagging till almost wetting my pants meanwhile Tom is elbow deep with his hands in the drain digging out god only knows what.    

All I have to recommend is do not buy a house in the winter!  Unless you have a documented septic system, okay.  Do yourself a favor.  I mean unless you want to put a brand new one in or you can get it inspected.  You never know what could happen, you could find 55-gallon drums in the ground.  Thankfully I had my dad's portable camper toilet from the renovation of the old house.

Made the call at 830 am.  I explained the situation and just buying the house rambling on.  He never interrupted me or got annoyed.  I was so suprised, seems as I was up a little longer than normal the night before and I get pretty worked up under stress.  

He was very professional, very polite, said he was headed somewhere and he would be able to make it around ten to ten thirty.  I WAS SO SURPRISED SINCE THERE ARE NOT AN OVERABUNDANCE OF SEPTIC COMPANIES.  I was overjoyed.  

Before 10, I get a call, he's on his way. He shows up.  Finds a god-awful mess that needs to be replaced.  I am so thankful that I am older, more prepared than I was anytime before now.  New septic systems can get expensive.  He came out, got us educated on septic systems and our "septic system." Pumped us clean, and will be out to give us a quote to install a new one.  Thumb Area Septic, Caro, MI.  #septicservices
