You Suck—And that’s good

We have an in-house vacuum that was here when we bought our home. We’d already replaced the hose and vacuum head twice in the last 15 years. Then over Christmas, we noticed that the head was cutting in and out and the suckage well sucked.

Since we were unable to diagnose exactly where the short was, we looked into purchasing a new hose/head combo. Which like everything else in life has gone up in price. A lot.

So we squirreled into stand-alone models. One that could effortlessly move from carpet to tile to wood.

The hubbinator found several candidates but in the end we went with the Dyson animal because, you know, we have animals. Lots of them. And their fur. And their dust. And their cat litter. And…

Well, you get the idea.


This vacuum sucks. Seriously, and I mean that in a good way. It slurps down those tumbling furballs before they get a chance to tumble very far. Cat litter—not a problem. The only bad part. We seem to fill up the cannister at an alarming rate.

I am very happy to say, it was money well spent. And I’m sure summer will only reinforce my opinion.

Until next time!
