Bunco Night

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.

Oy. My last vacuum died a similar death. I remember that smell. Glad to hear everything turned out well for your evening though :)

See, this is someone telling you not to vacuum :) Don't you love it when they give you the excuse up front? Have fun vacuum shopping. I hear the Dyson is a great one!

I agree, another reason to not vacuum. It's not your fault. It's the will of the universe.
