Today there is an evil red light on the septic pump monitor, an indicator that there’s something wrong with the pump. So we have to strictly limit the amount of water going down the drain, lest the septic tank contents back up into the house. This is an unfortunate situation. It means no dishes, no laundry, no flushing the toilet, etc. On the bright side, this is a Get Out of Cleaning Free Card. I have literally been told not to do any cleaning. So no dishes, no laundry, no cleaning the toilet, etc.
See, every cloud does have a silver lining.
