I bought this vacuum cleaner at a yard sale today for $8.00. The lady that sold it to me said that she received two of them as wedding gifts. It was sterile looking when I bought it , but my son managed to make it dirty looking in no time. Imagine my delight to learn that Joseph loves to vacuum . He vacuumed the entire downstairs, and now he is vacuuming the garage. He wants to vacuum the driveway , and because it only cost me $8.00 I think that I might let him. When he was finished he found a safe place to put it away in the garage, and I 'm considering using a sharpie to write his name on it.
If I would have known how much pleasure vacuuming would have brought to the boy I would have bought him one for Christmas, as a two- fer, because I enjoy watching him vacuum. He told me that he's going to vacuum our downstairs again first thing tomorrow morning , but it's Sunday. I guess if your working for pleasure then it's not a sin right? As a bonus - when the vacuum is turned on you can't hear the other children arguing.
( You may be wondering why I didn't have a vacuum in the first place, it's because I liked to clean everything by hand -even the floors . )
