Suck it!

This morning we needed to run a few errands.  To me, there is nothing worse than coming home to a trashed house, so I always try to pick up before walking out the door.  The house was decent and I decided to whip out the vacuum.  I'm vacuuming away and it just stops.  Nothing strange was sucked in, it just stopped.  Immediately I asked Mason to plug the vacuum back in.  

"but it's already plugged in!"

So we added a new errand to our list, a new vacuum. We went to 2 stores and decided on the Hoover Mach 6 to replace our Hoover Fusion.  We loaded it in the car and home we went.  Just to be sure, I plugged our old vacuum in to make sure it didn't work and it was still dead.  Mason comes in and says he's going to fix the old vacuum.  He plugs it back into the wall an voila!  It works like a charm!  Now what do I do?  Do I return it and hope that my old one keeps kicking?  Or, do I sign my son up for the circus with his healing powers?

keep the new one! (and sign him up!!!) i love me some new vac!

Rachel said...

I would do both, but that's just me.

It depends on how much the circus pays. I mean, it COULD counteract the price, right?

Plus you could get cotton candy when you visited him there!!!

Oh yeah, keep the new one!

Also, I love the first part of this entry. I too have an obsession with not returning home to a disaster, and am endlessly picking up as we walk out the door.

Christy, I lost your hubby's phone number when my phone crapped out. Tell him to call me when he has a minute, besides he was talking about a trip up here this winter. Wisconsin in January, ahhh yes it doesn't get any nicer than that!

Keep the new one...just in case! But I think you should sign him up too! I wonder what other cool secret magic powers Mason has. Can he turn my vacuum cleaner into a pile of money? Now, that would be COOL!

Christy J said...

I will let him know!!

Yeah, he asked me if he could go for New Years and I just laughed. New Years? Really? I guess there was a game or something, I dunno. Feb/March is a little more doable. And we are still waiting for the Disney trip!!!! :o)

Pedro said...

Its -17 (without wind chill) here this morning, I would have given him credit had he made the trip this time of year!

TriHard said...

i say keep the new one! It sounds like you get a lot of use from both of them.

Christy J said...

NO THANK YOU! Hahahaha!!! I'm a sissy! It'll be in the 70's here this weekend!!!

Annie, we've taken over. :o)

I would say you need to start renting him out. Starting with one (ahem) particular lady (cough, cough) in MD that happens to have TWO (gag) dead vacuums in her garage.

Did you try another outlet? Maybe you have a short in the socket...

AnnieM said...

Ding ding ding- We have a winner! That MP, she's a smart one.

That was exactly the problem!

Since money is tight in my house I would return the new one! I am the same way I do not want to leave to run errands until the house is picked up. Maybe that is why I have trouble getting out of the house before 11am!
