Default f**k christmas

Lately christmas has really sucked! 2 years ago my ex wife took off 4 days before Christmas which was rough at the time but turned out to be the best thing ever.

Now yesterday my well pump decided to take a shit on me which will most likely be a $2000 bill when all said and done. Ugh

Happy holidays!

cribleys did mine 2 weeks after closing on our new place...

1400 for the 4" pump 1700 if you need the 3". guess which one I needed... that was 2 months ago. so the rates should be about the same.

I love Christmas though.

I don't even know what size mine is, it's in the well. I was hoping it was just a bad pressure switch but I wasn't that lucky.

I couldn't agree more. I have always been the type that would rather see the joy and happiness on others faces.

I can always get what I need thru out the year, its about the kids and helping out the less fortunate.

Sounds like you have your own place, I think your eye sight and fingers are working good , assume you walk and talk just fine , count your blessings !! Remember there is always somebody out that has it worse than yourself .

Yeah I know, all is good. Just felt like whining a little I guess. It can always be worse.

All good in theory, but some people didn't get the memo.

Like my wife, for instance.

Every year, I tell her not to get me stuff, I have too much stuff, I am not getting her anything, and every year she buys me some sort of thing from QVC.

Told her this year if she really wants to spend money on me, pay the electric bill.

Always seems that way. We had the septic line clog 3 years ago(line sank over years, and became 'uphill' to the tank...), almost ruined Christmas. DIshwasher was running, we had the kids come downstairs to leave cookies for Santa, they hit the front hall and slipped into all the dishwater pouring out of the toilet. Two crying kids and I have to ignore them and run downstairs to move the giant stack of xmas presents directly under the room with the leaking toilet. Was taking turns cooking prime rib and snaking the septic tank. Fun times.


I just had to put a new drop tube on my well recently, the pipe rusted out after only 7 years..
