Gypsy, our beloved Goddess of Fur Spreading (or is that Doggess), sees the vacuum and splits...well, all the animals do that. They head outside for the duration. I am unsure why. It's not like I chase them with the vacuum, never done that. >:-) OK, well, once or five times. (You say it's cruel until you try it, then it's fun.) Well, I think Gypsy's revenge is to come back inside find the clean floor and roll on it and try to shed AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE on that clean floor.
That has irritated me. Which might be why we used to let vacuuming go for a week or two at a time. That and the fact that we don't exactly spend a lot of time on the floor. Unless I am playing with the dogs. But, other than that, we don't spend a lot of time on the floor. Now, however, with the threat of impending Chloe, we have both been trying to get into the habit of being more INTO the vacuuming up of pet hair.
Which brings me back to the Dyson. I fear for it's continued wellness. With the amount of use it's gotten lately, well, we might wear it out soon! So far, it's been a trooper. It sucks and doesn't try to shoot out dust everywhere, all-in-all, it is an awesome vacuum. Of course, maybe if we are vacuuming more often it will be doing less work in the long run...I hope.
Today, we get to play host to our Newest Niece!! Leah! I can't wait to see how we handle a little one around the house. Leah, however, isn't a normal baby...she is AWESOME. I don't think I have actually heard the kid cry! Weird, huh? Well, we'll be spending a few hours babysitting and we'll see how the whole not crying thing holds up. Wish us luck.
We also, plan to clean more on the house this weekend, but I am fairly certain that our visit with the niece will be the highlight!
