I'm in vacuuming bliss...

Remember a few days ago when I posted about how distraught I was that I couldn't find the vacuum wand anywhere?

I looked everywhere. I enlisted the help of the children and made them look everywhere. We still couldn't find it. And the cracker crumbs were starting to pile up....

This morning I got desperate. I offered a $5 reward to whoever could find it. There wasn't much interest. I upped the reward to $10 and everyone scrambled away.

30 seconds later - yes truly 30 seconds - Ellie came up the steps with it. It was under Lexie's bed (I promise that I looked there twice!)

It's amazing how motivated they can be when they want something.

So, now I am in vacuuming bliss. :)
