The other day I was vacuuming my living room and the vacuum started smoking. I immediately turned off the vacuum and text JC that I am absolutely getting a new Dyson vacuum. I have been wanting one forever and I'm sick of cruddy vacuums.
I was thinking "DYSON HERE I COME." Of course I wasn't about to tell JC how much a Dyson vacuum actually cost. I figured he would just allow me to get a new vacuum because he didn't have time to even worry about the dadgum vacuum.

Much to my surprise (more like dismay), JC decided to check out the vacuum today and see what was going on. He changed out the belt....still hardly any suction. Then he decided to take off the hoses....lo and behold, our PROBLEM. He filled an entire shoe box of vacuum lint out of the hoses. DISGUSTING. I was thoroughly embarassed. I would call myself a "clean freak" but now I realized I have been skipping some CLEANING OUT THE VACUUM HOSES. Turns out my current vacuum isn't so bad after all.

My Eureka vacuum will just have to do....until next time.

My Dyson will just have to wait...until next time.
