Worth waiting for!

I'm a little giddy over my present from Santa, it's more than I asked for... much more. I never dreamed that anything Earthly could make me so insanely happy. On his sleigh, in a box weighing only 17 pounds he brought me the gift of my dreams... a Dyson vacuum! I know, you were wanting one too! Only good little children get presents that they don't even ask for, just sayin'!

Actually, it happened like this. We got up the Saturday before Christmas and as I'm going through the ads hubby says there was dog hair on the front of the refrigerator. Please don't think we live in filth, it's winter here and static electricity is stronger than I am. It wasn't like it was one solid sheet of fur, but he had noticed and let me tell you it felt like a knife in my heart. Ms. Clean does not like hair in the kitchen, neither does Mr. Clean. So we packed up and went straight to Sam's Club for the gift we share each year. Sometime during the holiday season we agree that we "need" something, and reward ourselves! It's an old person thing.

I didn't wait until Christmas, I opened it the minute we got home and proceeded to vacuum the house from top to bottom. All three floors are now clean as a whistle! There's not a speck of dust, or a crumb of cookie hiding in any nook or cranny. And dog hair, do we have a dog???


  1. i love my dyson vacuum! i have had two and i would do a commercial for them for free, that's how much i love mine! have fun with it. it's fun, well gross to see how much stuff is in my carpets that look clean!

  2. I never had a dyson, but have heard good reviews on them!

    Hope you had a wonderful holiday!

  3. I love my Dyson also! And since I have a 2 story house, I recently bought my second one so I don't have to lug them up and down the steps. I think I am a good housekeeper but am always amazed at how much dirt shows up in that cannister!!! Merry Christmas to you!

  4. I don't vacuum.....or hoover, as my old aunts used to say. The Great Dane does it, and when he couldn't do it, it was a great trial!...our daughter came in and vacuumed. What can I say? I bake, launder, clean toilets, but I do not vacuum.

  5. Oh girl .... The ultimate vacuum. OMG. I might give up my new laptop for a Dyson vac. I know they are wonderful. Its on my list of must haves. Congrats!

  6. my husband was watching their infomercials this weekend and threatening to get one for himself. :)

  7. I'll bet that's a lot more manageable than my "weighs a ton and hard to deal with" Kirby, that I hate to use!

  8. So love mine, too! How nice for you ... enjoy!
    Happy New Year

  9. I had a VERY nice Christmas. In fact I'm probably good for the next several Christmases in the gifts department. But I have to say that your Dyson vacuum has me drooling!

  10. I'm so happy for you! I can't justify a dyson yet. But when this old Kenmore gives up the ghost, maybe I can talk DH into one then!
