I'll Probably Vacuum the Basement, Too

My house didn't really look bad, but I've been busy this week cleaning bathrooms, dusting, vacuuming, clearing away clutter, etc.  I still have to wonder how that clutter accumulates so quickly! 

Good thing I've been working on it, because now the house looks really good - just in time for a showing.  Our real estate agent called today to tell me that someone wants to come look at the house tomorrow afternoon, and I didn't feel all panicked about it and that I'd have to rush around like a crazy person trying to get everything ready.  It's pretty much all done, except for making sure dishes are washed and put away and any extra stuff that can be cleared off the kitchen counters is cleared away.  (I really would like to be able to keep it perfect at all times, but I live here.)

I may or may not vacuum the basement and the stairs.  I just did the upstairs yesterday.  I think the basement looks pretty good, because we're not really using it right now.  If I had one of these Miele Vacuum cleaners (one of the canister style) I'd probably just do it.  It's not like it's that big of a deal to carry my vacuum cleaner down the stairs, but still...

We used to have a vacuum cleaner in the basement too, but Jeffrey has that at the apartment now.  It's not like we specifically bought a vacuum cleaner for the basement.  It was just one that we had before we bought the one I have now, and there was another one we had in between, but that one broke.  When I think about how many vacuum cleaners we've had over the years, I'm thinking I should have had one of these Miele cleaners.  They're designed and engineered for a lifetime of at least 20 years and Miele’s unique 12-stage AirClean™ filtration system retains over 99.9% of all fine particles from the air without releasing harmful particulates and allergens back into your home, which I think is even more important.

I'm bookmarking this webpage because next time I need a vacuum, I want to look at these.  They even offer free shipping on all purchases, and no tax outside of Virginia.
