Housework Can Suck



... but not quite as bad when you are the proud owner of one of these little beauties:





I know, I know. Its purple. I've made peace with that. In fact, I've already affectionately nicknamed her "The Purple Fecal Eater."

I have already come to realize the magic and power and majesty to behold in a Dyson, as my Mom has graciously 'shared' hers with me for the past year (and by 'share,' I mean, she borrows it from me sometimes...).

I figured it was finally time to cut the vacuum cord and get my own.

Tyson (iloveyouiloveyouiloveyouiloveyouILOVEYOU!!!) found this little beauty for me online. I am a little apprehensive about that fact that its refurbished, although it does come with a 90 day warranty, and the savings ($220, shipped) will be well worth it as long as it doesn't, well, bite the dust in the figurative sense before its time.

The Dyson refurbs still come with outstanding performance and durability ratings.

Since I bought it before the end of the year, it will be a lovely business write off (see how easy it is to justify my spending habits? I have almost convinced myself not to feel too guilty... almost).

Still, guilt or no guilt... refurbished or not...I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

I had to go back and reread the comments to see what Tyson was talking about. Harsh? I'm just a realist. CLEARLY, the teal is not the same as the Purple animal vac. I didn't say it was worse, just a dif color! "JEALOUS!!! can't wait to meet her. loverly!" bite me Tyson:)
