This is not my vacuum:
I have a pretty simple Hoover Wind Tunnel - the bagless kind. Well, the belt broke several weeks ago and I kept forgetting to order a new one....so I didn't vacuum in the entire month of January!
Or the first. two. weeks. of. February.
Now that I really think about it, that gives me the creeps. Gross.
(Thankfully, we are dogless right now, or it REALLY would have been gross.)
The belt finally arrived in the mail and yesterday I went to town on the carpet. I went over every square inch of this old barnhouse I absolutely could NOT BELIEVE how much dust and dirt came up! I emptied the canister and cleaned the filters several times until everything was clean. No wonder our allergies have been off the chart!
Our Small Thing today really sucks. Now, correct me if I'm wrong but do I think it's been awhile since we've taken out the vacuum as one of our tasks and yes, and that truly DOES suck.... doesn't it? We should be getting Company Girl credit for easy things that need to be done regularly! What have I been thinking??
Today's Small Thing is to vacuum one room.
See, sometimes I put off vacuuming a room like the living room, because I feel obligated to do the entire house. But nothing could be further from the truth. Vacuuming ONE room is perfectly acceptable and even DESIRABLE, because it means that you pay attention to the details. It means that you don't mind getting in there are doing a "quick run through" to make things nice.
