Daniel decided this weekend to surprise me with an early Mother's Day gift. He brought me a Roomba! I've wanted one of these for a long time! I figured I'd get one at Christmas, but he found one that was brand new in the box on eBay with a significantly reduced price tag! Right now, it's charging. We'll all get to play with it in the morning.
As for me, the Roomba will be a back saver. For some reason, having Ashton knocked something screwy in my lower back. Any time I sweep, mop or vacuum, my hip starts to lock up. Therefore, I don't do those things as often as I would like. Since we have hardwood floors, sweeping daily is a necessity. With the Roomba, I will be able to do a through cleaning once a week and let the Roomba do the touch ups daily. I'm all for limited back pain. I'm so excited!
On the downside, it takes 12 hours to charge, so we'll have to wait until tomorrow morning to try it out. On the upside, it has a remote control which will allow us to drive it where ever we want it to go! Imagine all the fun we'll have chasing the cats...
I'll let you know what we think of it soon.
