My Sweety

For our wedding we were given a vacuum. It was a nice one that lasted us more than seven years and we are very grateful for it. The problem is that four years ago we started adding to our family -- DOGS! We have been amazed at how often we need to vacuum our carpets and how quickly the bag fills up. Literally we can vacuum once or twice and it is overflowing again. Because of this we are spending a lot of money on vacuum bags OR we are emptying the bags ourselves to conserve the paper.

After vacuuming last Friday, (I had the day off!), I decided that it was time to upgrade. We went to Costco and purchased a new Bissell Healthy BAGLESS Vacuum. We spent $200 on it -- but found it for around $250ish online. I had Joe put it together and vacuum the SAME room I vacuumed the day before. He had to empty the container before he even finished the room! I was quite disgusted ... but very grateful that I now have a vacuum that can successfully battle my dog's hair!

Last night I was vegging watching "The Biggest Loser" and I heard him start to vacuum the living room. He literally vacuumed for 1.5 hours straight! He pulled the couch cushions off and got all of the dirt out, took care of the stairs, and straightened the room! I couldn't believe it! He is so good to me! I guess now I should go invest in a super special vacuum and duster ... ...

Go Joe! If you'd like to test your vacuum out on my home, too, I'm all for it!

Yeah! I can come over and not get covered with dog hair. I like the poochies (esp. Copper-ooni) just not the hair. His ears are so soft, they make me happy. I love a good vaccuum, makes you feel like a real woman, eh?

I just read through your blog with all the baby news and I came to this one about the vacuum cleaner, and here you were with a better secret that a new appliance . . . although it is great to have a clean floor. You two sure can keep a secret!!
Love ya, Mom
