Roomba

This year my son listed a Roomba on his wish list.  I had been thinking of getting one for myself since several friends use it and love it.  Since my son always does extensive research on any product before he buys or even thinks about getting, I decided to get one for him and one for me.

I can say that it is effective.  It does a very good job of cleaning the floor and picking up all the cat hair.  Crash and Burn aren't too keen on it though and sometimes I don't blame them.  It's like having another child or cat.  It just doesn't listen to me and has a mind of its own.

This morning I put it down in the kitchen since I wanted it cleaned first.  Well, Roomba seemed to have a mind of its own and went straight for my bedroom and stayed there for 1/2 hour.  That floor didn't need that much cleaning. 

I finally picked it up, closed the bedroom door and put it down in the kitchen.  It headed immediately for the bedroom again, but was blocked.  The next time I saw it, it was back in the living room and pushing a cat toy around.  Was it playing with the toy?  It's still wandering around the living room.  Will it ever get to the kitchen?

Buwahahahaha!!! I know people who love them & still others that hate them. But dang! Who needs a child that doesn't mind you @ our age?

Anyway, you made me laugh good & hard. Thank you for that. I needed it!

I have to show some appreciation to the writer just for rescuing me from this particular problem. Right after scouting through the world-wide-web and getting notions that were not productive, I believed my entire life was well over. Existing without the strategies to the issues you've resolved by means of your guideline is a crucial case, as well as the ones that might have in a negative way affected my career if I hadn't come across your site. That expertise and kindness in playing with all the things was vital. I am not sure what I would've done if I hadn't encountered such a step like this. I'm able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for this professional and sensible guide. I won't be reluctant to propose your web sites to any person who would like counselling on this area.

MOM, SINCE YOU FIGURED OUT HOW TO BLOCK THE BEDROOM, WHY NOT PUT IT BACK IN THE KITCHEN AND BLOCK IT TO STAY THERE? IT'S EITHER THAT OR THROW IT OUT. YOU HAVE SO MUCH MORE PATIENCE THAN I DO. IN ANY CASE, THANKS FOR THE CHUCKLES ONCE AGAIN.

You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation however I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very extensive for me. I am having a look ahead in your subsequent submit, I'll attempt to get the cling of it!

Oh I've thought about one of those. But at my house I would come home and the doggone thing would have spread some kind of slimy cat puke all over the house. Not practical for me.
