Last night, this was the first order of business.
You may wonder why I’m blogging about a vacuum. Well let me tell you, there’s a history – and it all revolves around this:
My hurr. My long, constantly shedding hairs that fall all over the apartment allll the time.
As much as I want to shave it off, I never will. I love and hate it all at the same time. It causes my cleaning life great stress, but it’s easy to maintain and I can even make a mustache with it.
So yes… vacuuming and hair is what this blog post is about. I hate it.
I’ve even blogged about it before, here, regarding this vacuum.
I assembled this beast in June of 2009 and by probably August of 2010 it was dead. Dead as a doornail.
All because of the hair! It gets wound around the bristles in the bottom and forms an impenetrable net that the dirt and additional hair cannot pass.
I tried for several weeks to cut it all out, but to no avail. Keep in mind, this was almost a year ago.
I borrowed vacuums occasionally, but for the most part, I just had dirty carpets.
Insert your judgement here. I would certainly judge me for that also.
Finally, I’d had enough and forked over $50 for a new vacuum. Last night, I mentally prepared myself for the assembly.
Turns out, it wasn’t that bad! I just had to attach the handle and it was ready to go.
I vacuumed up lots of nastiness, and then examined the bristles. Again, they were clogged with the evil hair!
I cut most of it out and I think it should still function properly for a few more months.
If only I could afford a more beastly vacuum, this wouldn’t be an issue.
When I was engaged, I was ridiculously excited at the prospect of registering for a Dyson vacuum.
It’s still a dream of mine.
This guy is the answer to my problems, I know it. Someday…
And in case you’re wondering… I had this for dinner.
Taters and broccolini.
Then I went to yoga.
There was a train, so I was late. I disrupted the class and felt like an a-hole, but it was still a good class.
And that’s all she wrote.
Do you hate vacuuming too? What kind of vacuum do you have?
