You may be wondering why I have posted a picture of my vacuum cleaner and so I don't keep you in too intense of anticipation, I'll explain the reason it's here. The other evening, after coming home from walking with a friend, I was on the phone with the dear husband when I noticed a line of ants marching from one of the windows to the front of my couch. Not having any ant spray that I would want to use around my dogs, I knew that I had to get them up, so I rushed, grabbed my vacuum, and started doing all that I could to get the little buggers up. I noticed that there was poor suction and was a bit upset by the thought that my vacuum was breaking down on me and right now I couldn't afford to get a new one. I unattached the hose to nab the ones in the window sill and had no suction at all. So throwing the hose to the floor, I turned the machine off and prepared to see if I had a clog and that's when I noticed something missing. Yes ladies and gents....I had forgotten that two days before I had taken off the whole plastic front part to wash it and the filters and you guessed it I hadn't re-attached any of it. So there I was...trying to vacuum up ants with no filters in, no trash bucket, and let me assure you while I was relieved that the blasted thing wasn't broken, I felt a little silly for forgetting something so necessary. So, let that be a lesson to ya...always make sure you have ALL the vacuum parts attached before you try to get anything up. It just makes life easier in the long run!
