The best thing that Andrew brought to this relationship is his vacuum cleaner.
I'm kidding. Sorta.
Andrew has this great Kirby from the seventies or something that his mom gave him. It is pretty heavy, but it does the job right. Essential for a completely carpeted apartment inhabited by two people and a chihuahua.
It seems that part of living in the states today involves expecting that everything be cheap, convenient and disposable. It's a mentality that has brought us overflowing landfills and depletion of natural resources. It's sad.
That's why I want to make this post a nod to Kirby. Their vacuums are heavy and expensive, but they do the job right and last forever gosh-darnit.
I got one of Frida's tennis balls stuck in the head and the belt burned up. We replaced it this weekend. Kirby is back in service.
