Well, if you know Luke and I, then you know we have about the worst luck ever. We are always the one family that has that one strange thing that never happens, happen to us. Especially me and my health! Well, last Saturday I had just changed Gracie and Luke was upstairs playing the XBOX when I noticed a strange, horrible smell. It smelled like a permanent solution and it kept getting stronger and stronger, so I yelled for Luke to come down and take a whiff. Instantly he ran out onto our deck and this is what he saw:
A giant hole! You ask how and what is it? Here's more hints....
And here are a few shots of the basement:
Did you figure it out? Our septic tank collapsed! How often does that happen? Never. They have never seen it happen according to Grover's excavation that installed this. They said someone how the cement vault's lid must have been faulty to begin with, got a crack in it somehow, possibly that earthquake in Nevada a few weeks ago and all of the gravel and weight on top of it just crushed it. Sending water into our basement that luckily didn't have poop in it, but it was a mess! Why us? I am just grateful the basement didn't get it any worse than it did. But it is all fixed and things are back to normal for the moment.
I have to post a pic of my baby!
And today is Millie and Daisy's 8th Birthday! Happy Birthday to them. We are having lots of treats to celebrate it! Wahoo!!!!! Love you guys! Here is Millie...
I have been on my new thyroid drug for a week now and haven't noticed any difference, but they say it will take awhile and months before any weight starts coming off. Grrrrr. At least we know what the problem is. I can't believe that Easter is next Sunday! Where does the time go? Gracie is almost 8 months old! I have had to retire all of her 3-6 month clothes into storage bins in hopes that somehow, someway we might be able to adopt one more someday. I just can't believe she has already outgrown all of those clothes. I am so grateful for Steph donating Harli's clothes to us. I can't wait until she can wear them. She is going to look so dang cute! Have a super day everyone!!!!!!
