“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” — William Arthur Ward

Our house has a lot of carpet.  A LOT of carpet.  And we are fairly messy people.  Okay, we are very messy people.  The net result of this is that in the first two years that we lived here, we went through four vacuums.  Different models, different brands, different price points, same result:  a noisy, smoky death after just a few months of service.

Finally, I had had enough.  I went online, did some research, found a screaming sale, and bought the vacuum of my dreams:

It’s still going strong after almost two years.  It even still leaves those awesome vacuum lines in the carpet.  Each time I use it, I am amazed at all of the gunk it pulls out of the carpet.  It makes me happy.  (Having the gunk OUT of the carpet instead of in it.)  And with a geriatric long-haired cat, a heavily shedding dog that may or may not be a pug, and a baby girl who has just begun to crawl, a reliable vacuum is most definitely something to be grateful for.
