I got a free new vacuum today! I have needed one since the day I got a hand me down from my parents. But who really wants to spend $ on a vacuum. The good ones are expensive, and if I bought a cheap one I knew it would break or something, so I just held off! Good thing.
We participated in a lead program this summer. The city inspects your house to make sure there is no lead dust, paint etc. We qualified for the program and were accepted. Our home passed the inspection but they still did so much stuff. They cleaned ALL of our window sills (a big job which I haven't done in the 3 years we have been here). They did a really nice job, they even oiled all of the wooden sills so they look really nice! They painted our kitchen ceiling and our outside door. They vacuumed with a special vacuum just in case ther was lead dust. So it was a nice program, especially those (most others who participated, I hear) who do have lead still in their homes. Anyway along the way I heard something about a free vacuum, I didn't think it pertained to us since we were lead free. Well I got a call last night asking if I'd be home at 10 so they could drop off my vacuum. Of course I would be.
Needless to say I vacuumed ALL day! I got a new (worth $150) Hoover WindTunnel vacuum. It is so cool. It has these lights..one red..one green to tell you when a spot is clean or dirty. MY HOUSE WAS REALLY DIRTY. It took at least an hour to do my living room and dining room. It has a hepa filter and all these attachments. I am excited to vacuum. I have such a clean carpet now!!
So I just wanted to share my excitement of a new vacuum..I got my hair cut today too, and found a new dish drainer (nice one) for $3 and shirts for Ethan for $1.48. ILOVE GOOD DEALS!!! I guess today was a pretty OK day. Thank you GOd for blessing us in little ways.
