    Ever have one of those weeks??

    I swear, just when things start looking up, something else goes
    wrong!!! I know I usually don't post a "vent", but here it is.

    We finally got the approval to get the addition done on our house.
    BUT, before you can get a building permit you have to have your
    septic system inspected. GUESS WHAT!! It has to be replaced.

    This morning, after 3+ inches of rain last night. We awake to find
    a HUGE hole in the middle of our garden. I am so glad that we had
    not planted anything yet!!! It is 3-4 feet wide and goes about 6
    feet deep and you can tell that there is like this huge open space
    under where there is still dirt. We had a guy come out and look
    and it seems that it is an old septic that has finally had a part
    of the top cave in.We have to have someone come in and dig all the
    dirt off the top, cave in the rest of the top of it and fill the
    tank. Then we have to bring everything back up to the height it
    should be.

    Hopfully once we get this all fixed that will be it for a while.
    Thanks for listening.
    My mom just keeps saying, "And this too shall pass." I just keep
    saying SOON!!!

    The joys and curses of owning a home

    I think the joys totally outweigh the curses. If you were renting you wouldn't be having any of this discussion.

    Think in terms of an investment. Any improvement you make will continue with you or your heirs. Can't wait to be there again, myself!

    Thanks Jeff!

    I know that things will eventually work out. It just seems that
    since we bought this house and moved in things have not always
    gone as we planned. We only lived here 12 days when our children
    were in the accident that paralyzed our daughter. I am looking
    forward to the addition that is going on this summer. Maybe then
    things will settle down. Thanks again.
