:: Oy ::

:: I'm not sure what instills more fear in me; having my kids spread crumbs, rice & other random items like my new mercury Christmas baubles around the house while just being kids or not having a vacuum to clean them up ::

:: Well last week all of the above was confirmed, in one day. I woke up to Jacob doing something that required the little zippy swiffer vac {yeah, I had to get a new stick vac as I killed aka over used the last one}...I think it was rice, again. Okay, so we're slow learners! Anyway, while I was vacuuming at 7:00 am he decided to take his dump truck and ram it into the front of the vacuum, everything was fine until I tried to turn it off and the dumb thing wouldn't turn off, that was until you slammed it into the ground, and then it would turn off ::

:: So, okay I have to return it {it was all of 22 days old}, that's fine, I can do that. Well later the same day, yeah, it was a hummer of a day, Jacob decided to take one of the biggest baubles, which is the brightest and prettiest and largest bauble on the tree and take it and throw it against the wall, what a great smashing sound it makes! What a great little pieces of glass it turns into. While he is in time-out in the chair, I run to get the other vacuum because the handy dandy stick one is on the fritz. I run upstairs and back down, he comes over to me as I'm running down the stairs and like a 4x4 rams my legs causing the vacuum to drop, in turn breaking the tilt mechanism. Great ::

:: On Friday night I headed off to the local W-Mart {cause that's what you imagine you're going to be doing when you grow up right?! Heading to the local mart @9:00 pm to shop for vacuums and diapers..right C&C?!?!?}to pick me up a couple new vacuums and I came home with this as my "big vac" and I love it! Totally worth the $94.98 ::

:: I also picked up another one of these to replace the last one. When the girl at customer service asked me what was wrong with it as it was still so new, I said "it won't turn off", she turns and hands it to two 18 year oldish girls that are her little elves for the Christmas rush and what do they do? Press the button to turn it on, she turns to them and says "she just said it won't turn off" then I said "until you smash it into the ground", so they do just that a voila it turns off ::


:: Oy, my life sometimes! I wonder why someone isn't banging down my door to record my life; seriously I could make a killing these things! ::

Oh the busy life of children! Thanks for sharing! You made me smile! Sorry that was such a rough day though! Sometimes I get to the end of the day and can't believe that I"ve actually made it through and I only have 1 so far! Bless you today!

Great bathtub splashes, sad vaccuum and bauble smashes...you need that new watch to find time to recoup!!! Merry Christmas hugs to you!!!

Amanda said...

Oh dear. I am currently thankful that Makena cannot get into the rice canister in the cupboard...but she is at the 'baubles on the tree' crawling level so you never know what December may bring! Haha!
Thanks for the 101 on vacuums! Hope the next day went better for you!
