Today is the shittiest day of my vacation.
After having the kids dig in our garden for the past few weeks in search of buried treasure, they found it. We just needed an extrusion afterwards to get it out.
This was not like the adventures that The Goonies had. My kids were digging to find our septic tank opening.
They did. In fact they found both lids. What to do next…
Today was the day to pump it out. This is the first time in 11 years since we moved in. And at nearly 20 years since it was last done. The tank is apparently twice to three times the size needed for our home.
That’s a lot of poop.
We needed a big truck.
Bright and early this morning it arrived. The fellow vacuuming out the waste was super awesome and we talked about shit. Apparently we should be pumping out every couple of years.
The smell was bad. Butt not as bad as I thought it would be. A bit less than steaming manure on a hot day. Not quite campsite outhouse.
Now that it’s empty, I’m happy that this is done. Onto the rest of my day.
It really can’t be as shitty as the start.
