We invited our neighbors to come over this afternoon. In anticipation of their arrival, I cleaned the house. I picked up all of the toys, and then I decided to vacuum (gasp!). I pulled the vacuum cleaner out of the closet and plugged it in. I started vacuuming, but it wasn't picking anything up. DAMN IT!
I turned it off and flipped it over. This is what I saw...
It turns out that my hair was wrapped around and around the agitator (side note: I asked my husband what the spinny thing was called, and he said it was an agitator. I thought he was full of shit, so I looked it up on google. Turns out it really is called an agitator. See image below for proof. My blog is soooo educational!)
In order to get the hair off of the agitator, I had to cut it with a pair of scissors. Holy smokes - look at all the hair I got off...This is a direct result of postpartum hair loss. So anyone who is pregnant right now, this is what you have to look forward to.
