Because I was becoming completely OCD about the floors and any dust that would settle on them. Which is a lot. They are dark floors, after all. One can’t sustainably sweep 6 times a day. Clearly I didn’t think that one through.
But my little Roomba keeps everything neat and tidy. And it’s not nearly as loud as it sounds in the video. You can schedule it to run on its own at a preset time. But only once a day. WTF? I run it 3-4 times a day right now (Kris and Brock think that will decrease as the newness wears off. I think they underestimate me).
So far it’s been just perfect ~ always finds it’s docking station, makes happy little noises, and keeps me company when I’m cleaning. I know that probably sounds strange, but it’s always more fun to have someone working alongside you. Roomba does the trick for me. I’m thinking about dressing it up for Halloween and maybe decorating it with ornaments at Christmas.
