For the last few years or so I have been casually begging Keith for one of these vacuum cleaners. The few couples that we know who have them talk about how amazing they are, and Keith and I on the other hand have been through three different vacuum cleaners in the five years we have been married, and I was not super excited about any of them. In fact, with our most recent vacuum after I would use it I would then “swiffer” to pick up all the dust that was missed by the vacuum. The one thing stopping up from getting one was the price. If you have never looked into one of these beauties you might be a little shocked at the price. Because of that I always assumed that our home would never hold one of these gems. Little did I know that the combination of a 30th birthday and the power refurbishing would score me one. Keith found one for $100 less than the original price, and decided that in my case a clean house equals a happy wife, so he decided to get it for me for my birthday. I am now the proud owner of a Dyson DC24! I know that it’s a little 1950’s of me to ask for a vacuum cleaner for my birthday, but those of you who have one of these know how great they are. I even had a friend tell me that she loved hers almost as much as one of her own children. And the Huttons spent all their wedding gift cards on theirs. Today was the first day that I used it, and I actually vacuumed my lampshades. I would have found more things to vacuum but Ellie kept asking me if we could go get the frozen yogurt that I promised her. Even typing this I am looking around thinking about what else I can suck up. This thing could be dangerous. On a sad note, this means that we have a lovingly used vacuum cleaner that needs a new home. She has two brand new filters, and would love the chance to clean up after another family. Let me know if you would like to bring little blue into your family.
