It needs a specific part and after spending 6 weeks at the vacuum doctor....and paying $60.00 to have it "fixed" under warranty, J brought it home only for me to figure out that the part that needed to be replaced wasn't touched and we basically paid $60.00 for them to do nothing.
It's been weeks since then and I'm still waiting for the damn part to arrive at my house.
You can only imagine what it's like to have 5 little kids and no vacuum. 5 kids who take no concern at ALL when dragging dirt and crumbs into my house and all over my carpets. oh and lets not forget the dog.
I've been sweeping the carpet and rugs with my broom. Which surprisingly, works well, but come the freak on. I don't want to sweep my carpets anymore.
In other news, I found out how much I'm worth. I'm worth a LOT more than I thought someone else might think I'm worth, of course not worth more than I thought I was worth, because I think that I'm priceless. :)
Per year : (figures reflect minimum amount)
Private chef - $52, 260
House cleaner - $6,136
Child care - $31, 200
Driver - $4,168
Laundry service - $936
Lawn maintenance/yard care - $1,560
Total salary = $96,261
Plus I'm sure this is a total based on a family of 3 or 4. With my family of 7 I'm figuring this salary would go up quite a bit.
This puts my salary at just over $100 grand. I told my wife this and she just laughed and said, "you better find someone to pay you that then"
I gave her the stink eye and walked away. I'm pretty sure she knew that she was wrong. and also lucky. and would have left to get a cashiers check if it weren't for that yummy homemade chili in a bread bowl that I made for her dinner last night.
Instead of fighting with her about it, "where's my money, show me the money, I want what's comin to me Eddie" I just hired a personal assistant to help out. take the brunt off . I'm also paying her the same way I'm being paid...with sarcasm and hollow thank yous.
|Normally happy to help Syd's about as thrilled to do it for free as I am.|
I knew if I bitched about it to enough people the universe would hear me.
My vacuum part was delivered via the USPS today. Now I get to go vacuum my floors.
Only, now, I'm not excited because I realized I'm not getting paid enough...or even at all.
Ah well. such is life !
eeeeeeeh !!! My VACUUM is fixed. YAAAAAY !
it's the little things in my life.
