Every 6 weeks a group of my friends have a ladies night. We get together and play Bunco which is really a good excuse to eat, drink and gossip. We rotate houses. I hosted last February. So it was my turn to host this weekend.
My husband took the kids out to a cub scout banquet ceremony meeting thing (I didn't ask). I had 2 hours to get ready. I had been cleaning and organizing all week. Really all I had left to do was prepare some food, set up tables, and vacuum. What do you think happened? Yup, the vacuum died. It sounded like a jack hammer in my living room. I tried to use it anyway. Then the house was overwhelmed with the smell of burning rubber (probably the belt).
I opened the windows and turned on fans instead of vacuuming. Bunco was still a lot of fun. The smell went away and no one seemed to notice the lack of vacuuming.
I'm going vacuum shopping tomorrow.
