Some Things Really...

I've decided I hate the vacuum.  Vacuuming is one of my least favorite things to do.  Don't get me wrong, it's great at cleaning the floor fast, and there's really no better way to get dust and things off the couches.  But I will put it off and put it off and put it off until whatever it is that needs vacuuming is pretty awful looking.  The reason: I hate the vacuum cleaner.  Anyone I've ever had is noisy, and the sound of the thing just rattles my brain for some reason; it produces an odd smell, like you are breathing in the dust-exhaust it's producing (even though you're probably not); and then there's cleaning it out to remove the dust from the filter so that works properly.  So I've determined:

  4. lol riding vacuum... thats great! Vaccuums are in the "too noisy for me" category. Anything in that category makes drives me CRAZY in the literal sense... i get uncomfortable with loud constant noises. I think its the control freak in me, loud noise doesnt allow me to listen to my surroundings so im thrown off... so perhaps i'm not just crazy but paranoid as well lol :)

  5. I hate it too! Love how the house "feels" afterwards though. Sometimes I use my Ipod for noise abatement. I listen to what I call house cleaning music. It's loud and fast paced. I love the card :) I may need to check that out!

  6. I like to vacuum, but I'm a vacuum snob. I'm all about my dyson. Besides the 5 years warranty (which I need as I'm rough on my vacuum [sucking up socks and ribbon etc.]) on which I've had free maintenance twice, it also has a hepa filter.

  7. I don't like to vacuum until after it is done. Then I think, that wasn't too bad. It was my Saturday chore growing up, which might be why I procrastinate doing it.

  8. I love all these comments! Maybe it was getting woken up by my mother with the vacuum in my teen years, I don't know, but I just can't stand it. And the shop vac is just as bad, and we have to use that a lot now. It makes me feel like I'm in some kind of a sound vortex or something.

  10. Ha ha, that would be fun! I hate vacuuming too and the fact that it scared the bajeebers out of my daughter doesn't make it any more fun!
