Looks like my vacuuming/hoovering days are over. At least for now because my vacuum just died.
Dead, dead, dead.
Dunno why? Maybe it will restart. Funny thing, I was just thinking how much I dislike this model compared to my last one, and how I'd love my old one back or something like it and, boof. Igor died (that's his name). A new vacuum is not in our budget, so next time I'll be more careful about what I wish.
Meanwhile, I'll cover the pups in two-sided tape. At the very least, it should keep their hair from falling on the floor.
In the spirit of Igor, try a Victor Frankenstein experiment on the remains of Igor.ReplyDelete
I might try that.Delete
oh no, darn, hate when things break.ReplyDelete
Tape and Swiffers. They can dust under the coffee table.ReplyDelete
Get a Dyson. Great vacuums.
This is a Dyson. So was my last one. Though this newer one is not even close to as good as the old Dyson was.Delete
I have a Dyson, that weighs a ton, and cost a fortune. I'd like a new one, but this one hasn't depreciated to zero yet, and I've had it for 15 years. Back breaking machine will outlast me! :)ReplyDelete
Igor is a Dyson, and so was the last one. Igor starting working again. Whew. A new Dyson is not in the budget plan.Delete
I hear Rainbows are nice machines, as well.
I'm so glad Igor is working again. I hate vacuuming. But then I hate housework of any kind.ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh, you hate it? I love it. No kidding. But yes, thanks. Glad Igor is working again. Maybe he was pooped.Delete
Housework causes warts......ReplyDelete
Man that sucks! Speaking of, I found something in Pinterest tonight, said I could pour vinegar on the stain in my carpet, poor baking soda on that and let it bubble up. Wipe away and then vacuum when it's dry ... Yea, it's like 1030pm. Should have waiting until tomorrow ... Ooops.ReplyDelete
Igor started to work again later. Woohoo.Delete
Vinegar and bicarb (baking soda), is what I use to clean stuff all the time. Powerful combo. I also use it in my bakes. But I never tried it on carpets. Thanks for the idea.
Beware, may be recommended on light carpet. Unless I've done something wrong, which is also likely.Delete
Thanks for the tip. I will give it a go next time one of the dogs tracks in mud. Which should be any day now.Delete
How was girls night?
Ivy, thrift stores have electronics and furniture, perhaps you may find one at such a store? Not new, but at least one that works? Hey, why not? I love your animated vacuuming lady. LOL! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Linda. Igor is working again.Delete
LOL oh to be you, what joy!!! lol wonderful whiski!!!ReplyDelete
Ah well, at least it had a good run.ReplyDelete
He started working again.Delete
I feel for you! Mine is on death's door, and the thought of looking for a new one--even thought this one tried to kill me--stinks. I do like your temporary solution though. I can see you know, "Who wants a treat" as you slowly back up and they inch forward wagging their tails.ReplyDelete
Hahahaha. That I would do. Who wants a treat. So true. Hey, Igor started to work again last night. Woohoo. Sorry yours tried to kill you. What's up with these vacuums?Delete
Glad Igor decided to keep going. I have a Riccar that I like. But it's heavy. Lugging it up and down stairs makes my shoulders sad.ReplyDelete
The older Dyson was heavier and this one that is on the verge of death is too, but it turns corners better. I'll google Riccar. Thanks.Delete
Nothing's made to last anymore!ReplyDelete
Don't you just hate it when the vacuum packs up ...ReplyDelete
Igor may feel better after a little rest ...?
All the best Jan
There was something stuck. Once we unstuckededededed it, all was good again.Delete
I love that you name your appliances :) And Igor...hahaha...ReplyDelete
