Man, oh, man! Was it ever a smack-down in this house today.
I've been putting it off for a while (since some fuzzy creatures never seem to get the hint!), but sweeping was not doing the trick any more. I needed to vacuum!
So I got out the ol' boy and went to town in the carpeted area. Not too much trouble, a little work at 38.5 weeks prego, but doable!
BUT OH, DEAR LORD! Who could have imagined the power struggle that lurked in the living room! I use the hose a lot in this room, just because it's easier to attack the dust bunnies. However, today, it was just not meant to be.
It caught up my dress multiple times.
It sucked up a pencil.
It sucked up shoe laces.
It sucked up the computer's cord wrap, and started sucking the cord itself.
It sucked up pieces of paper, that wound up getting stuck.
I then had to dump it out.
It decided to dump all over the floor in three different piles.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
I couldn't get the hose back down because the pencil was stuck. So, I had to turn the whole thing up and over and shimmy the pencil down and out.
Needless to say, I got most of my vacuuming done. Was it worth all the trouble? That, I'm not sure!
So, next time you vacuum, be careful. Mr. Dyson or Mr. Hoover or whoever just might have an attitude that day! You've been warned!
