Vacant Wanderings of a Feeble Mind!

That's actually how I'm feeling right now, but that title is actually the name of a video a bunch of us made in high school. Yeah, I know, we all missed our calling.

Anyway, exciting news in our household, we got a NEW VACUUM!!!! Oh, this is big stuff for us. In the 6 years (almost) that we've been married, I've never owned a vacuum. I've been using an old clunker that my mom let us borrow (that's Jer and Aidan using the old vacuum one last time).

And now, enter the new Hoover Windtunnel Twin Chamber Bagless Vacuum with Hepafilter. (and I suffered a major injury taking this picture! I'm currently sitting with a bag of frozen corn on my leg trying to stop the bruising and swelling. It's the hazards of the job, I know)

Oh yeah, baby, this vacuum sucks!! And I mean really sucks. We just had our carpets shampooed and vacuumed with mom's good vacuum and we had just vacuumed on Friday with our old vacuum. So Jer decides to take it for a spin yesterday afternoon and you should see the stuff that came out of our carpet! YUCK!!!! I said to Jer "maybe the manufacturers just put dust and hair and fiber and dirt in it so that the first time you use it you think 'wow, this thing works amazing!'" He just shook his head. So that proves my point, we could have been using a Carpet Flick for as well as our old vacuum was working.

And I know I'm weird...who takes pictures of vacuums? I just hadn't posted any pictures in a while and I thought you deserved something a little special : )

WOW! nice vacuum. I am in need of a new one myself soon. Just a few years ago (ok, maybe more than a few) I would have thought women discussing vacuums would be lame. Who knew how exciting it could be?!?

It's on sale this week only at Canadian Tire (half price) for only $99.00. And it works really good, like I said ; )

Too funny. I was just thinking about that the other day. At the same time, I had a flashback to our high school era 'social experiments'...

yep, we should have been social scientists...we had it down, didn't we?
