I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who gave me vacuum recommendations.
We ended up buying a Dyson Allergy and Asthma and I love it!! I couldn't believe how much extra it picked up after I used my old one. I also love how much it sucks. The first night I used the wand I wasn't paying attention and almost sucked the sheet off my bed (it only managed to get about a 1/3 of it in the wand before I noticed)!
Thanks again ladies!!
