This really sucks

The great thing about living in a motorhome is that you can go where ever you want to go, whenever you want to go.

The bad thing is the dirt IN the motorhome goes along for the ride.  There's just no way to outrun the dishes, laundry and need to sweep and vacuum.  Sigh.  So much for my glamorous carefree life I had envisioned.

The cheapo vacuum cleaner I had picked up earlier was basically a hand vac on a stick.  It worked okay  put was awful to clean.  So my plan was to pick up another Dyson that I admired and invest the $300 into my cleaning supplies.

But today we were at Wal-Mart doing some back to school shopping with the grandkids and Left Brain found a Bissell for about $36.  It has a crevice tool and soft brush as well as a Hepa filter for allergies.  Hmmm.  I'm game to try this and save a lot of money. 

It's assembled and I had my first turn at terrorizing the cat by cleaning the floor.  I'm never sure if it's the noise of the vacuum cleaner or seeing all that hard work of properly layering all her cat hair over the carpet destroyed that upsets her so.  It just goes to show that nature abhors a vacuum...and so does She Devil.

Long Live the Queen of Clean


  1. Sighhhhh, there's just no out-running dirt and dust. If you don't believe me, ask me and I'll tell you. (My mother always used to say that to us kids.) Even when you do a good cleaning job, the dust bunnies are lining up behind your back. Good luck with them. I would have gone with the $36 vac too. You have a wonderful night, hugs, Edna B.

  2. The Bissell sounds great too!! So though you sold a house..the household chores remain, eh?

  3. sooooo funny....nature abhors a vacuum... tee hee..
    I know the olympics is winding up, but you are already my gold medal queen.
