This is my current excitement

Because it really doesn't take much anymore.

Yes, folks, a real, live, grown-up vacuum cleaner.

Costco had it on special, plus I still had that $20 Costco gift card hanging around, so finally I have a vacuum cleaner that is supposed to be good, doesn't take a cycle of steroids before you can build the strength to push it, and doesn't come with a screw to keep the handle in place that's too short (causing you to go to the Home Depot to get a longer one, realizing the nut won't fit it, causing you to rely on a shaky theory of gravity to allow you to vacuum 2 feet before pushing the screw back in or risk the handle coming out and looking like a jackass...). What the hell. I'm 44. I should have a grown-up vacuum.

I swore I would go home last night, put it together and vacuum the hell out of my living room, but I didn't get home til around 7:30 and I was just too tired. So I swear I will do it tonight. Believe it or not I am looking forward to it. Vacuuming on a Friday night. I am looking forward to vacuuming the living room on a Friday night.

How did this happen?

Isn't it exciting? Who knew that getting a new vacuum was that fun.
