Check out this "sucker"!

Check out my new vacuum cleaner. What is wrong with us mothers that we get so excited about a new appliance. I can't help it though, I am excited about my new cool blue Dirt Devil "Reaction". Doesn't it just exude powerful "suction"! You should see it when it is actually plugged in and performing...I'm in awe!
The reason for my new purchase is because my old vacuum cleaner died about a month ago. Can we have a moment.......ok, that's enough. Anyway, it has basically been on its last leg for a while now, and it bit the dust (no pun intended) just recently.
My new vacuum has all kinds of cool features. First, it is bagless folks! Yup, no more nasty, exploding bags to mess with...just push the release button over the trash can and "Voila", no more dirt!
Second, is the cool mini vacuum attachment if you will, that is perfect for cleaning my stairs. Before I moved to this new house a year ago I've never had to deal with the "vacuuming the stairs" issue. This cool tool makes it so much easier.
Third, is that it just looks cool. It's BLUE! And when you turn it on the little vacuum chambers spin really fast. Need I say more!
Ok, well I'm done bragging. Enjoy!

The only way I would be excited about a vacuum cleaner is if it was one that you could hold the hose up in the air and it would pull all the dust off of all the furniture, shelves, tv, etc. and suck it right into the machine. Then those "suckers" would be worth the arm and leg you have to pay for them.

I agree with evil mother..except one step further.. I would only be excited about a vacuum if it came with a person to do the vacumming.

evil mother and windy are right! But, in Lissa's defense, I remember the first Christmas Ben and I were married and Dad and Lynn bought us a vacuum cleaner. We were ECSTATIC! And I sat there and said, "Man, we're old. We're excited about a vacuum cleaner!" Of course we had been married 9 months without one so our floors were pretty dirty! I am excited for your new purchase, but I am not jealous at the fact that you had to spend money on it! My last vacuum cleaner cost about $130 and that was 4 years ago!

Looks like a nice one. Ours is almost on it's last leg, so when we move and get into a new house, I'm sure that it will be something that we will be replacing. I'll keep yours in mind.
