New Hotness. (I promise the toys were picked up off the floor only 10 minutes before this!) (That is a Johnny Bravo episode on the almost-dead tv.) (Doesn't everyone put their coffee table right in front of their tv?)
According to Consumer Reports, this Kenmore is the best upright. period. The Dyson Absolute Animal was like #9! CR said this could be found for $350. I got it at my local Sears for $229 plus tax, tag and title. I also found a super little toy tool set for Lucky's birthday for half price! Out the door for less than $280.
I may actually be motivated to vacuum more now.
don't get your hopes up.
ps - if you turn the AC on in January as you vacuum with you New Hotness, you won't get sweaty at all and won't need to shower. Besides, I will shower and SHAVE MY LEGS tomorrow morning. yesmaamIwill.
