A Robot for Venus

Well about a year ago I decided that it was time to hire a cleaning person to help keep our house in order. I was going back to work full time and keeping up with the house seemed impossible. Well it is, but the hubby won't give his blessing to hire someone. He keeps saying he'll "do more", but really he can't even close the flatware drawer all the way when he gets a spoon out for himself. Or the cabinet where the cereal is kept. Is this Venus vs Mars thing or what!? :)

Anyway, my mom really helped me out this Christmas by giving us a Roomba. This thing is so cool, I've been wanting one for a while now but they are a little pricey, especially if you want the deluxe model. She got us the base model and I have to say it does everything I need it to. At first the hubby was a bit dubious but now he really likes it too. I put it on today to work the first floor and about twenty minutes later I go up to get some tea and there he is entranced watching it, I don't think he gets the point that you put it on to do the work so you can go do something else more fun.

I hate those annoying people who post phishing comments.

I really want to know more about this Roomba thing. We are looking for a new vacuum cleaner, and so far we are leaning towards a Miele (supposed to be way better than Dyson in terms of SUCTION and all those important things). It also supposedly decreases the number of times you have to dust your furniture, which is a great thing in my book!
