The advantages of having a sewer back up. Let me count the blessings!

1.  I don’t have to clean the house — because half the stuff that belongs in the basement is in the living room … and the hall … and the kitchen … and my office … and my bedroom.

2.  I don’t have to put up a Christmas tree or decorate the house — because all my Christmas decorations are in the SeaCan in the backyard.

3.  I get to go to Rusty’s house for a fancy Christmas morning breakfast — because nobody is coming here.

4.  I don’t have to purchase or cook a turkey ‘cuz we’ve been invited out for Christmas dinner.

5.  I don’t have to do Christmas dinner dishes because Hubby’s brother and wife won’t let us.


This is gonna be a pretty cool yule!

  1. Your sense of humor kills me, Jane!! You can always look at the bright side of things! 🙂

    Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to everyone!


  2. Jane,

    Is this the same back up or a recurring problem?

    I see you will enjoy the “perks”, regardless of how bad the situation really is.

    Keep Warm and Merry Christmas!


    • If by “the same back up”, you mean the one that happened in October … this is the same one! The insurance company is just taking its sweet time getting around to fixing things.

      We’ve never had a sewer back up before, so I guess it isn’t recurring. What a thought! Recurring sewer back up! *shudder*

      Mind you, my basement is going to look SOOOO nice, once everything is fixed … in about the year 2015! *grin* We will have nice drywall downstairs, so I can paint it off-white to lighten things up. I also had them replace the lights with 4 foot long recessed fluorescent fixtures. With warm white tubes, it is wonderful. I will enjoy having a sewing/painting room that is nice and bright (as long as I can keep David’s junk out of there).
