First, it was the washer.
Now, the vacuum cleaner has decided it too doesn't want to work.
Oh, and did I mention the in-laws are due for a weekend visit in 48 hours?
Don't worry, I've got it all under control. Instead of one, big, looming pile of dirty clothes and towels taking over the back hallway, I've decided to spread out the dirty clothes piles around the house on to the areas of the carpet that really need to be vacuumed.
See....it's all under control over here.
