But, that's not all. Let's move on to Christmas Day.
We all got up to open gifts amid a torrential rain storm. That was ok. We enjoyed staying inside in front of the fireplace with all of our new loot. That is until I was in our bathroom and happened to notice some "water" in our bathtub. Hmmm. That doesn't look normal.
Yea, well I've since discovered that septic systems don't really like torrential rain storms.
It tends to fill them up. Completely.
That's really fun when you have out of town guests staying with you. Thankfully, it was just my mom and we survived until we could get the appropriate people out here to fix it.
Let's move on, shall we?
While we're discussing the potty. See the one above? Well, a couple of months ago, it sprang a leak. Not from the bottom but from the tank when it was refilling. It would be a pretty little fountain of spray that would come out and onto the wall. Lovely.
Let me ask a question. Does anyone know what happens to wood floors when they get wet?Anyone?
Right! They decide they want to buckle.
Here's a picture of it - you may not be able to see exactly what I'm talking about but trust me. It's buckled.
This is only a few of the problems that have developed around here lately. I won't give you stories with all of the following pictures but let's just say that something is wrong with each one.
