Its all in how you look at it

I got a visit from my friendly not-so-close-neighborhood Kirby guy. Ive been around Kirbys for a while, and I know how good they are, but I wont be able to afford one for A VERY LONG TIME. I was promised a carpet cleaning and I really needed one, so I let the 19 year old kid who REALLY wanted to win a trip on a cruise, show me all the things I already knew. I like my current vacuum, don't get me wrong, but Kirbys are really good. I also believe a healthy dose of denial is a good thing. When you don't know what your missing, you can be content that what you have is good enough. You can believe that your house is clean when you cant SEE the evidence that its not. I mean REALLY, who is it hurting when you are ignorant of the truth. I really didn't need to see all the dirt my vacuum left behind and I REALLY DIDN'T NEED TO SEE ALL THE CRUD PULLED FROM MY MATTRESS! I was blissfully unaware of my filth. But, Taryn's birthday is tomorrow and now I have a REALLY CLEAN CARPET for my guests.
And hey, IT WAS FREE! Even if I will have nightmares because of it.

PS hopefully my computer will be fixed soon so I can get back to my regular blogging. I'll have lots of pics from Taryn's birthday party to post, so wish me luck!

We've had Kirby come a few times, and I have deduced that my vaccuum is just as good....and it cost much less money. Plus, the last salesman was so extremely pushy that I will never let them come again, clean carpet or no.

he vacuumed your mattress? Weird...

they came to our house two years ago, maybe. They vacuumed a pillow and only a square of my rug.

the kid was young and I kind of suckered him into cleaning my whole living room. at the door he said he would clean one whole room with no catch. I kept using you (Mechelle) as an example of what "other" Kirby guys did, and I said "are you SURE you can do the whole room before 3?" I think he really wanted to impress me, so he did a pretty good job. no complaints here :)

So they came, and left the Vacuum for us to use and think about it till Thurs. When the guy left we found one on e-bay for a fraction of the cost and it's only a year old. So we bought it. Now I have to call the guy back and tell him to come and get his machine *ugh*. Hopefully it won't be a big ordeal.
