I really need a new computer.....


but instead, I got one of these tonight.

Isn't she purty? Of course, I haven't dared take her out of the box yet -- maybe tomorrow.

I've lived alone for almost 25 years. In all that time, I've bought two vacuum cleaners. I think the first one cost about $49 from Sears. I think the second probably cost about $79. So, if I divide the cost of the Dyson + the two Sears vacuums by the number of days since I've lived alone, they're only costing me about seven cents a day. Oh, but even better, I had a 20% off coupon from Bed, Bath, and Beyond, so I saved about a penny a day!

Hey, what ever happened to the "cents" key on our keyboards? Did you ever think about that? Has life gotten so expensive that cents are disposable?

i have one of those vacuum's! they're great!

i don't use it though. i think i've used it once. but my cleaning lady does. she says it's great.

once i pulled the mop out to clean up a spill and my 6 year old said, "what's that thing?".

yeah, it would probably be cheaper to hire a cleaning lady.

hey, are there cleaning men? do they wear the little black skirts and the frilly white aprons? maybe that's my solution (to a number of problems).
