I have a wonderful Oreck vacuum that we bought at the Habitat for Humanity Restore for thirty-five dollars.  Jerry installed new brushes and it's almost as good as new.  Almost. It vacuums fairly well and is feather light, so I can carry it up and down the stairs with only one hand.   The only problem is that when I turn it on, it sounds like an airplane is taking off in the room, so I wear an industrial set of ear muffs like the guys on the runway wear.  When I have them on, I can hear only blissful silence.

I vacuum a lot, especially very early in the morning.  So if you call me at, say, 8:15 a.m. for example, (well, any time before 10:00 a.m. really) I'm not in bed asleep, I'm vacuuming. 

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
