I think our septic tank is finally really draining.  It's been lower this week than any other week - between 12-13".  Yesterday I actually did a load of dishes in the dishwasher.  Of course I had to use the "Eco" dishwashing detergent my husband ordered for me online, but I was surprised how well it cleaned the dishes.  We haven't had to shower at Amber's for over a week, and that's really been nice.  I've practically had to sit on my husband to get him to keep waiting.  Every day before it started draining good, he'd say we just needed to dig a new leech field.  I kept telling him that we had an agreement to wait until the end of May.  Glad we waited now.  Hope it keeps this up!  A few more inches and I'll be able to wash clothes at home instead of going to the laundromat!  Woo-hoo!  :0)

This reminds me of something one of my friends used to say. She and I would talk about our blessings, and she would say, "I'm just so thankful for bladder continence." She was totally serious. And so I can too say that I'm so thankful for your sewage drainage! :)

I hope it's working - you've had enough problems with it to last a lifetime!
