This morning, I saw a commercial and I laughed. I laughed so hard, I snorted. I think I scared The Little One. The laughter was not just because it was hilarious, but because it was so true. It was an ad for the new Dyson Slim Vacuum. What was so funny? They showed all these women vacuuming. All their vacs were making a rubber ducky sound, while the Dyson Vacuum sounded powerful while in use. It was ingenious on the part of the advertisers. I couldn't get the commerical out of my mind. You know having such a large family, nothing here gets normal wear and tear. Vacuums are practically disposable here. I have one the deck right now (waiting to go to the dump), because the belt broke and we couldn't find a store that carried it. We couldn't even find it online. I have another in the garage. It just died. Three vacs in 12 months. It's a record. The Little One's Dad bought me a carpet sweeper. (Ha-ha)
Anwyay, I was reading a blog: I'm not just a mom...I'm a Home Mom (thanks for the link love). At that blog, I read all about the contest 5 Minutes for Mom is running that is being sponsored by ....Dyson Slim Vacuum!
