After wishing, praying and hoping for several months, I finally bought a Dyson vacuum sweeper.
I had listened to happy Dyson owners rave for over a year. I read in blogs about the wonders of the Dyson.
I didn't want to pay over $400, and I wanted one of the animal-hair ones. My dog, Sadie, sheds like crazy.
So I was Googling around the Internet looking for bargains and suddenly found a deal at Linens and Things, online. First-time customers got 25% off by typing in a coupon code, and shipping was free. Bingo! I chose the Dyson DC07 Animal Vacuum.
My sweeper arrived yesterday, and I've emptied it three times. The first two times, it was mostly dog hair. Now I'm getting a mixture of dog hair and dust.
I have, in my Google searches, learned that not everybody likes Dyson; in fact, some people hate them and have been badly disappointed. We'll see how I feel about mine in a few months.
I think one of the fascinating things about this modern marvel is that you can see what you're picking up in the clear dirt-container. Believe me, it fills up fast, and keeps getting dirt long after I would have stopped, if I couldn't see what I was getting out of the carpet!
I've swept carpets, throw rugs, bare floors, steps, and bedspreads. Every time I park the silly-looking purple thing and sit down, I glance around and see just one more thing that needs vacuuming.
I'm going to have to sleep and eat sometime. HELP!!!!!
