Our New Addition

“I’m not going to vacuum until Sears makes one you can ride on.”  ~Roseanne Barr

———-

The hubby and I are overjoyed to introduce to you the new addition to our family…A healthy (roughly) 18 pounder.  A hard-working girl named Dyson.  We are quite proud of her.  And we are expecting great things of her! 

Seriously.  I was in bad need of a new vacuum.  The old one (may she rest in peace…pause for a moment of silence in her honor…) had seen better days.  She came into our lives in 1992 and it was just time to let her go peacefully to the place where all good vacuum cleaners go when they have taken their last breath…The great vacuum cleaner closet in the sky.  *Sniff sniff*

My new girl is quite the sucker!  It was MOST frightening the “stuff” that she collected in her beautiful see-through collection bin.  After I vacuumed each room, I would say to the kids, “Holy cow!!  Would you look at how much disgusting grossness Dyson sucked out of the carpet in the living room??!”  The HORROR!  They would give me the collective “EWWWWW!”  Oh, how they will humor their mother!   God bless ’em!

So, it is with great pride, I raise a toast to Dyson and say, “Welcome to the family!”

    Ooooh–I\’m a big fan of my vacuum–it\’s a dirt devil or something.  It has a little light that tells you when the carpet is clean. My MIL has one of those eight-hundred dollar vacuums–a Rainbow.  It doubles as an air purifier too.  Just something about a woman and her vacuum.

    I think Bill R-E-A-L-L-Y loves his Dyson.  Wow Bill, maybe you should post your thoughts a few more times.  🙂
     
    We don;t have a Dyson although we looked at them.  With the Labrador of Destruction we go through a vc in about a year. You\’ll have to post updates to let us know how she is getting along.

    You. I got beef with you. Tell you all about it later.
     
    Love the vacuum cleaner; love the quote. One of my favorites. We are in desperate need of a new one ourselves–3 hairy indoor dogs will shoot one out in less than a year; we\’ve hung onto our $50.00 Walmart one for three now. I don\’t think it really even does any good any more…maybe it just spreads the dirt and hair around making things worse. Who knows? Enjoy your new addition! Toni

    I love our Dyson….even if my wife did get the pink one.   I also couldn\’t figure out how to open the dust container thingie, so I dumped all of the first load of junk out on the floor.  Everyone thought THAT was funny.And aren\’t you getting a little close to a vacuum cleaner!?!?!?
