See, we have a huge tree in our front yard, and apparently the roots had finally destroyed any semblence of terra cotta plumbing running to our city hook-up. And while the advantages to your front yard being a septic field results in greener grass, the back up of sewage in the basement...not so nice.
Let's just say the neighbors are panic-y that they can be next, and woe to the listed for sale home, since every car driving through our neighborhood passes our home..
How's this for home value?
But all is not lost, as it will take time for the mound of filled ditch with new PVC plumbing to fill and compact. So now we have a 3 foot mound through our entire front yard. It will be a slow process as our ground is clay. And since the season is changing we will not be able to landscape until spring. Whooppie!!!
Additionally, looks like my running habit may have practical uses, as yesterday the head gasket, on my car blew. So i am carless, until we figure out how to pay for a new car after paying for a plumbing job from hell. Or a dig to hell.
At least i can run to and from home and the office at an under 8 minute mile pace.
Or at least could, until using lame excuse of stress to buy smokes, cause i'm made of money and the extra 5 bucks wouldn't have made a dent in the 1000s of dollars in new bills.
Oh, it's the most wonderful time of the year!!!!
