“It” meaning the vacuum.
Or anything coming from the fireplace.
I decided to investigate the noise and realized a plastic piece on the side of the vacuum kept popping out.
Not sure why that particular piece was key to the operation of the ENTIRE vacuum
but I didn’t design it.
I flipped the vacuum over and discovered the horror that was the rolling brush inside.
What in the holy hair?!
I had to give our vacuum a hair cut.
After I saw just how much hair I cut out of the poor roller brush, I started to understand why that plastic piece was trying to jump ship.
After that disgusting task, I tried using the vacuum again.
Not even a little bit.
The plastic piece kept falling out.
And I started noticing that it wasn’t really
sucking anything up off the floor.
I called Monte and we figured out the vacuum was almost 10 years old and possibly not worth the repair cost of having it fixed.
So, with coupon in hand, I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond and bought the cheapest thing I could find.
The last vacuum we had was a Dyson that we loved,
until the noise
and broken plastic piece
ALL THE HAIR,
but then, that’s our fault.
Monte and I quickly decided that we weren’t going to shell out the money for another Dyson and with him on the phone doing searches on brands, we decided to go with a Shark Rocket.
Mainly because it was on sale and I had a coupon.
And also because it was very lightweight.
And got good reviews.
I have to keep it on the low setting or it tries to suck up an entire area rug!
It wasn’t until I was trying not to suck up all our area rugs that I realized it didn’t have any detachable hose features.
We definitely need that for our carpeted basement stairs.
So we’ve decided to get a handheld little cordless vacuum.
So, all is right with the world
and there is a broken,
Dyson in the garage waiting for trash day.
