Some women may not like to receive appliances for presents, but not this lady...especially when it helps with my allergies. (side note: Travis does not believe in allergies. He thinks they are all in my head-literally.) Well, I didn't really get this for a present, maybe a thanks for being the best wife on the planet (haha) kind of present, but no specific occasion. It could have been Christmas because I was pumped up about my new Bissel Pet Hair Eraser! Wooo Woo! Amanda, this might even take care of Bandito's winter coat. I researched this bad boy on bestbuy.com before I ran out and bought it. I wasn't born yesterday, and I didn't want to fall for the hype. But, after 65 reviews, I figured they couldn't and wouldn't have taken the time to pay all these people off. So off to Lowe's we went. I vacuumed with my old, terrible vacuum the night before I got this baby. It sucked (sorry, mom) and not in a good way. But I didn't realize how lousy of a vacuum it was until I got the BPHE! I emptied the thing 3 times! Yes, I was wearing a mask while I vacuumed; I always do. (Note: chew gum while wearing mask. You will get tired of smelling your own breath...even if you just brushed.) The old, terrible excuse of a vacuum now lives in the garage until I can find an eco friendly way of disposing of it. I thought about good will, but that is kind of gross to get some one's old vacuum. That may just be the mask-wearing germ freak in me. I leave you with the evidence. RIP old vacuum!
I assembled it myself!
The culprit: yes, Maggie, that is you in there, but you are worth every headache you give me.
I kept screaming, "How am I alive?!" I have wicked allergies, and I really do try to keep a clean house. I will have to tell Dr. Barney, the allergist, about this bad boy!
