In Need of a Vacuum Cleaner Recommendation

Scott Benner

My life really is strange sometimes. Yesterday I was in a Manhattan studio for a Lilly Diabetes satellite media tour where I was interviewed, along with Amy Hess-Fischl, twenty-nine times by different television and radio stations from all around the country. It was a whirlwind day that began at four in the morning. We gave one interview right after the other for almost seven hours, it was a really fun day of talking about sleepovers, diabetes management ideas and the Lilly/Disney collaboration at

The bright lights of the big city didn't last too long for this stay-at-home dad. When I arrived home yesterday my son was sick, the laundry was piling up and Arden had homework to do. I got back into my routine pretty quickly and this morning things were back to normal here at home.

I found the kitchen counter this morning after the kids left and gave it a polish, then I thought I'd do a bit of vacuuming before I had breakfast but something terrible happened. My closest comrade in this life, my partner, the yin to my yang - she passed away suddenly. I don't know what I'll do without my little buddy, but I guess I'm just going to have to press on. Sure she sucked at her job and I never liked the yellow jacket that she wore, but Eureka... she tried. 

Anyway, here's some pictures from yesterday's media tour and audio from one of the radio interviews. After you take a look, if you have a good one, can you please leave a vacuum cleaner recommendation? I need a sturdy upright that does wood and carpet and I like a nice wand for the corners and such. Not too expensive but I'll spend some money for a vacuum that'll last. Thank you!
