    I spent the entire afternoon vacuuming the

    house, the curtains, the couches, and beds. Husband comes home, says nothing about how spotless the house is, but asks if I vacuumed the washer and dryer out, when I say no, I hadn't thought of that, he got upset.....What?!?! Does anyone else vacuum their washer and dryer?
