oh my god-duh!

Carol  ·  Nov. 12, 2013

I made my first foray out to the portapotty with my trusty flashlight cuz even I know no one in their right mind pees in a portapotty in the dark.

I swear to god I am going to die. it is so humiliating to be forced into portapottying in ones driveway.

where oh where is my long ago somewhat normal life..oh where oh where can it be....

I am so upset by unhappy current toiletting events and to make it even worse.... at my age.... I have to pee frequently.



hi susan..they are going to start working out a septic is a fairly involved on site investigation and mathematical process and involves public health approval. once the plan is complete, then we will know the total cost. the plan itself including submission to the health authority, costs about $2400.00. if it can be fixed along the way, they will fix it and just charge us an hourly rate..if not and it is a full replacement... ballpark is 25-30 grand. this guy is super nice, comes highly recommended and seems to be really committed to keeping costs down as much as he can because we are an animal shelter.

hi may..thx! i will see if we can get their photos and bios to you soon. must be beagle month..heard about three other senior beagles just in the past couple of days!


Carol, I swear I don't know how you do it. Sometimes I'm overwhelmed by just every day life. You always have a way of putting things in perspective for me. I am truly in awe of you and as always, thank you for what you do.

Is there a quote yet on how much it will cost to fix/replace the septic system?


I lost my dignity when I started dumpster diving for the beagles:)

In spite of your forays into the netherland in the middle of the night, Carol I have undying respect and gratitude for you. I think you are awesome. I'd be surprised if any one of my volunteers hasn't heard my ravings over SAINTS.

And yes, we'd be happy to poste Luke and Jake on our website. Can you email me pictures and details?


It could be worse, at least YOUR plumbing works (the house plumbing may not). A little bathroom humour.


OMG you need your own reality show.
Instead of Hope for Wildlife it could be Carol Needs a Rescue.


lol...have you seen the size of my teenie weenie bathroom...I cant even fit a real life laundry basket in there...<em>maybe</em> a babies potty chair. and don't anyone even suggest putting a commode out in the hall or anywhere else in plain view!


Could you get a commode chair to put in your bathroom? At least you wouldn't have to truck outside in the dark.
