Really shouldn't lol

Today I bought a vacuum. Ours had decided its sucking days were done.

We tried so many things to get it back on his feet (new belt for example) but alas, it now is retired.
Must say it was good timing. The same brand went on sale this week. And now a new "purple" version sits in my living room.

Really...cleaning...who gets excited about this? Me apparently. No sooner did wh have it together I was going to town on the carpet. What's shocking is that we didn't expect just two days without a vacuum would amount to so much dirt

Or maybe...(and secretly this is what I think lol) the old vacuum had decided a LONG time ago that picking up dirt was no longer fun...yep.

Owell. Now I have a new vacuum and my carpet shall be cleaner than ever. Woohoo.

So anyone else get excited over something that they really shouldn't?

I totally feel your new vacuum excitement. When H bought me a Dyson a few years ago I was so excited, I was yelling and jumping up and down. He said, "Who gets so excited over a vacuum cleaner?" I said, "You just don't understand!"

Ok good. Now i don't feel so weird

Surprisingly my wh vacuums a lot. I think the living room gets done at least twice/day.

I get excited over kitchen stuff too. Wh got me a cheese grater with the bottom so it collects it all. Man I just want to grate everything hahaha

Office supplies. I was giddy as all get out when I got the full rainbow set of fine point, clickable Sharpies.

grocery shopping

Anything botany related, especially remembering or learning plants' names or families. Or stories about my city's natural history. Everyone just gives me a blank stare when I start yammering.

A new tea kettle! Just the right size for me

Nik, the office supplies thing for me too. A new notebook and colored pens.... Sigh
And at my advanced age, i still love the smell and look of a new box of crayons (64 with a built in sharpener!)

Add me to the group. I love paper....loose leaf, tablets, composition books, spiral notebooks, etc....Yep, I might need an intervention.

And, free samples. I register for free samples online and I get giddy when I check the mail and I've received one.

I'm a weirdo but finding a new program to use while working. I see we launch a new system and I'm like yay I wanna try it!!!

Numbers in some sort of sequential order. For instance, I sent SO a special text yesterday when I noticed that it was 12:34 p.m. I took the day off to celebrate 12/12/12. I remember staying up all night during sleepovers and annoying my BFF with announcements of special times (10:01, 10:10, 11:11, 12:12, 12:21, 12:34, etc.). Delightful.

I get excited when I out do myself in coupon savings.

Last week at the grocery store the cashier handed me the receipt and mumbled how much I saved. I turned to MH and said "how much did she say?" and the lady behind me said "$55.00!...that's awesome!" LOL!! I turned to her and said "my highest to date is $73.00, I'm still trying to beat that without buying a bunch of crap we don't need or eat "

I love clipping and sorting and shopping with coupons...it's like free money if you do it right

That moment I realize I can change the radio station after my 15 year old gets out of the car.

those 3 songs get real tiresome

Wow. That is sooooo cool. I will lay awake in bed staring at the clock waiting for some specific time. If its 10:20 I'll watch until 11:20. Like some sort of OCD thing in my head. The digital 8 drives me crazy. I'll run through ALL the numbers as many times as I can before it changes to 9. All of the numbers are represented in the digital 8. Ok that's weird I admit!

Now I use my iPhone clock so I make sure to turn it away so I can't stare at it.

Do you think being excited that the kids are in bed so I can put on an adult movie is ok to count into this category?

nowiknow23 posted 8/15/2013 13:35 PM

Um...no - that SHOULD get you excited. Totally!

painpaingoaway posted 8/15/2013 13:42 PM

I just got a new dishwasher. I have been running it non-stop for 3 days now. Have been cleaning out the kitchen cabinets and washing everything in sight!

Oh, and I even got all my fine china out of the china cabinet and washed that because the dishwasher has a fine china setting, and I wanted to check it out, lol!

DragnHeart posted 8/15/2013 13:44 PM

Ok good.

It's funny how much I appreciate an adult movie after the kids have watched Finding Nemo or A Turtle Tale five times in a row.

No clue why both of tem get so excited about seeing the same movie over and over and over...


I am looking forward to spoiling myself with a dish drain that has a section for cutlery... I don't have a dishwasher lol.

I have always done the same thing with the digital 8s. I never recognised it as crazy or weird....until now....thanks
