Let me guess. You have a nice vacuum. Most people do. Maybe not a great one, but a nice little vacuum. Do you know what mine looks like? Kind of like this. Only it's 8 gallons. And older. Please don't think this is a complaint.
A shop vac is kind of perfect for around here. I can suck up a knee high barbie boot and half a waffle without any thought. The standard "household" vacuum can't handle my household debris.
You've heard my new vacuum is coming tomorrow right?
It seemed kind of unfair that I had to vacuum today in preparation for her arrival. But, since she comes with my parents it seemed the polite thing to do. This way my parents can pretend on some level that their grandchildren aren't being raised in a great big mountain of crumbs. They know the truth, but we all like to pretend.
Although I did think about maybe asking Mom and Dad to drop the dog off and take a couple of laps around the block while Cady did her job.
