What a week

The sewer backed up.

I have been dealing with getting estimates to get it fixed. It backed up because the lateral sewer line has broken. We have old orange-burg clay pipes.

I had a hard time getting company’s to follow through on giving us estimates. I have had a hard time getting companies to return my calls. The city has been involved too. They have been excellent. They arrive on time and have been very helpful.

We rent from family. The family member who own the home, has a home on the land also. The electricity, water, sewer, Internet, and cable are all on the same line. No separate bills. Only the house phones are wired separate.

The family member is retired and it turns out they maybe able to get a special low interest loan through the city, with the home as collateral  to get not only the sewer fixed, but needed repairs in both homes!

The general contractor is coming out special for us tomorrow to look at out list and give estimates. It goes before “committee” on Wednesday.

I am sure praying this all goes through!
