Well, it seems the battery on the battery powered sump pump was wonky, so we called Lowe's, and it turns out that they were willing to take back the lead-acid battery, even after we put the acid in the battery. So, it's pretty cool that they refunded both the battery and acid. We got a nice new one, and hopefully this one will hold a charge.
I made tomato soup from scratch for dinner. yum.
I have a picture I need to post later. Dogs and cats, living together. Crazy stuff.
