Death in the Family

I have always tried to be a good steward of all the blessings that have come my way. Unfortunately, today as I vacuumed the playroom and made my way to the living room, the vacuum cleaner stopped. I saw that the plug was coming out of the socket. I finished taking it out of the socket only to discover one of the prongs was left in the socket. I killed my beloved Electrolux canister vacuum (Diamond Jubilee Series). I stood there in disbelief as this was given to me from my dear mother in law when I was first married (nearly 12 years ago) and she had it years before that -maybe even 30 years before that. Now I'm trying to figure out if I should get the cord replaced or buy a Swivel Sweeper. I will have to call it an early night and mourn over my loss and maul over my next critical decision.

You have my sympathy...Vacuums bring such warmth to a room. The freshness, cleanliness and neatness just can't be beat. Be blessed!
