My “Short”lived Vacuum

I wish I’d had my camera with me when I opened up my baby boy’s door this morning.  Most of the time, he’s partially awake but I think he’s going to be just like his Mama and make getting out of bed and mornings in general the most dramatic part of life, so I have to rub his back and talk to him and coax his lazy little body out of the bed each day.  Today however, he was sitting up in his bed with every blanket he has in his room (which is about five, counting the two already on his bed) piled on top of him.  I asked him if he was cold, and he said, “No, I not.”  Well okay then.  Super cute though 🙂


Two cups of coffee with a Clif Bar

We decided to get Arby’s at the office today so I had the Roast Turkey Farmhouse Salad with just a touch of honey mustard dressing.  It was actually very good, a little small for me since I like a BIG salad and then for a snack this afternoon, a Chocolate Dipped Coconut Luna Bar.  That should hold me until supper this evening.

I also have a new problem.  My vacuum cleaner.  You may remember a few weeks ago I posted about my vacuum cleaner problem with a short in the cord resulting in my loss of sanity and a filthy house, however, the repair shop called finally and the diagnosis was not good.  Not only is there a short in the cord, there is also a short in some panel on the inside of the vacuum that will cost $200 just for the part to have it fixed.  Gracious.  So, now I’m at a loss.  It’s a good vacuum but it’s also a few years old.  Do I pay the ridiculous amount to have it fixed or do I start vacuum shopping?

Anyone have a vacuum out there they absolutely love? 

Any brands that you are loyal to?
