New member of the fam:

I have never been miss suzie homemaker...partly because I just am not. I would much rather be working on some big thing at work that cleaning toilets, vaccuming, cleaning floors, or doing laundry...ok so I enjoy the cooking part and now have the time to do it. But the other things I would rather not do. But lately they have really bothered me, maybe because they are right in front of me due to my occupation now being out of my home. who knows....

my biggest annoyance lately has been cleaning and then it not looking as though I have cleaned...and my baby crawling on the floor and having him covered in dog hair when he gets up. So to make a long story short...like a year long story....i have been complaining for months *a year* about how our vaccum doesn't clean the way it should. it is three years old and I don't think we registered for a very expensive one, we have changed the filters and still no luck. So i did my research and found that the best vaccum for us was a "DYSON ANIMAL D17. it sounds like a new invention for the military, it might very well be. or at least the price would make you think so....$549.00. SO it was definitely out of the questions. I am already schemeing to find a way to get enough gift cards to target for christmas to be able to afford it. (i haven't had much luck)

the other day Adrian I were browsing through his mariott points/or airline points catologue we have been saving them for a vacation but obviously that is not going to happen this year with Jackson's health, so we started talking about how to spend them.. we came along the dyson allergy vaccum...and Adrian said maybe we should get a new vaccum. I sarcasticly said yeah right...with flat screen tv's, golf accesories, and various other manly items...you are going to get a vaccum. however, i did not give up on the idea...for the last week I have randomly asked if my vaccum was on its way...I was willing to make the sacrafice of the animal vaccum just to have a high quality vaccum that actually sucked the dirt out of the carpet, rather than just moving it around. I had borrowed Erin's Dyson a while back, to check it out and just the basic one did more than my bissel. SO I was willing to sacrifice.

We would like you to meet the new addition to our family....I think Jackson was just as excited to meet the new vaccum as mommy was.

I had no idea it was coming. The fed ex man arrived with it around 11:30 am and I was vaccuming by 1pm. I have two more rooms upstairs and then I will move down stairs. I am on a cleaning frenzy...it is so much fun to see what the vaccum pics up right after I vaccumed with my vaccum this morning. isn't this gross...look at all that dog hair that my vaccum didn't pick up...oh and that brings me to the next surprise
I didn't have to sacrifice a thing. Somehow my fabulous hubby got the D17 instead of the allergy one. I have the vaccum of my dreams...all it took was approximately 13 weeks away from my husband over the last two years. I am not sure it was worth that, but I will take it for a consolation gift...since I have already indured the two years. can't wait to invite you all to my dirt free home. OK maybe we can't go that far. But I could definitely do a fabulous Dyson commercial.

You know you are a mom when. . . you get excited about appliances. I am so jealous! I have wanted a dyson. I am so happy for you!

Karen said...

Dysons are fab! We've had ours for years and my only complaint is that it hasn't broken yet. I really want the animal one but I can't justify it until ours breaks.
Congrats
