A.Levesque # 54 - Big Life Decisions

  Matthew 18:20 Man, don't we all wish we could predict what was going to happen next week much less a year out.  Can you imagine that knowledge?  Do you think it would make you work harder or motivate yourself more. Live the life you want by making it.  Sometimes we think we have it all figured out and here comes God and his will.  What is right to do and actually be compassionate to others. How angry are you?  Compassion How unforgiving are you? Compassion Spending ten minutes with someone's problems and you would want yours back in a heart beat.  A day in another's shoes would put your life in perspective. We all fall short. We all are capable of pulling ourselves up. Make sure to be living the life you were meant to and quit worrying about the rest of it.  Everything works out. Love your faces. ❤️A.Levesque 

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
