Eureka - The Optima Lightweight Upright

You might have seen my post a few days ago about trying to win a Dyson vacuum cleaner. Well, I technically entered a day late. As far as I can tell, they haven't announced a winner yet. I've been in serious need of a vacuum cleaner for like 4 months. I bought one for $10 at the thrift store, but it does not work very well. In fact, only the hose works to any degree at all, but that is a killer on my already bad back to try to vacuum my entire apartment bending over using the hose.

I got a notice on Thursday that the apartment management is coming in on Monday to change the filters in the ac/heater as well as the batteries in the smoke detectors. So, even though I didn't really have the extra money to spend, I went to Big Lots the other night to see what they had. I don't want management coming in on Monday and seeing my apartment in the shape it's in. Between client deadlines and being sick, my cleaning has greatly suffered and you can tell.

I found a vacuum at Big Lots for $40 called The Optima Lightweight Upright by Eureka. It's a bagless and has a filter that is supposedly better for allergies and such. Andrew and I both have allergies, and I figured I wasn't going to find much cheaper than $40 other than at the thrift store.

Hopefully I'll get the place looking decent. I'm on a deadline right now, so I'll probably end up having to do most of it Sunday. I took before pictures. If I can convince myself to not be embarrassed by them, I'll post them with after shots when I'm done. LOL

Win a Dyson Pink Vacuum

I came across this post last night over at Domestic Diva's Blog, Win a Dyson “Pink” Vacuum in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Well, I have to enter because I could certainly use a vacuum cleaner! I had a decent one, but my sister's puppy chewed the cord. I bought one for $10 at the thrift store, but it sucks! (Or doesn't suck as the case may be.) The hose works pretty good, but it's not so easy to vacuum a whole apartment, even a small one, with just the hose. Especially with a bad back. :)

Check out the Domestic Diva's post over at Win a Dyson “Pink” Vaccuum in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month to enter to win!

7 Things You May Not Know About Me

I just read that I was tagged by Tammy Munson over at New Media VA for a meme. I've never been tagged before and am all choked up that Tammy thought of me. (Of course that might be the combo of Dayquil and Excedrin and the fact that I'm due for another dose of decongestant that is choking me up.) goes:

1 - I've never been married.
2 - I'm a computer geek.
3 - I've lived in California, Washington, Utah, Georgia and back to Utah.
4 - I'm a very emotional person and cry a lot.
5 - My computer is usually organized to the point of being house, not so much.
6 - I have fibromyalgia.
7 - I have a ferret.

Man, that was hard. I swear my mind went totally blank. Ok, so I guess I'm supposed to tag a few people. Tammy tagged three, so I shall also since I really don't know how this is supposed to work. LOL

I'm tagging:
Stefani Partin
Alyssa Advant
Dianne Fratscher
