I WAS WRONG

Similar to my model but newer

I believe that when you are wrong you need to own up to it, so here goes. I have always said that those little electric self propelled disk vacuums were for lazy people. This was based mostly on my love of vacuuming. Yes I love to vacuum, I know it’s a sickness

My youngest son received a Roomba for Christmas last year. He has beautiful dark floors in his house that are impossible to keep clean. Drop a crumb and you see it, which of course would make me crazy. This little device (Roo) starts at the same time each morning and I was amazed at what that little thing picked up. This does not replace deep cleaning. (my opinion because I love to vacuum)

Of course being the saver that I am, I went directly to facebook marketplace to see what kind of deal I could find. $250 is not a lot of money but I will save as I am the thrift queen. I scored a pet model, maker is BOB Sweep, no I am not being paid to promote them but I wish they would send me some free stuff, as this little sweeper is AMAZING… It has a remote control, multiple settings, it’s own charging station, and a mop function. Who knew

We named our guy Obi Wan Vacobi. Obi goes all over the house every morning and picks up the hair from our 2 little dogs. The first time I emptied the container, I almost passed out. Ugh, who knew that so much stuff collected everyday. I still vacuum like a maniac but just knowing that Obi continually gets the small stuff is great.

I was wrong go get one, look on a re sale site first, ha

The quick way to divorce

My co-worker came in today so excited she was given a Rumba for Christmas.

This little gadget here: would be grounds for divorce in my house. Why you ask?

  • Anyone who knows me is aware that I LOVE to vacuum.
    • The only rooms in my house that have carpet are the bedrooms (which is both good and bad); the additional parts of the house have solid surface floors and throw rugs.
    • I added the rugs to ensure that the floors didn’t get scratched and honestly to provide additional areas for me to clean.
  • It baffles me that anyone would not want to vacuum, are you crazy?
    • I think the all the new electronic gadgets have created a bunch of lazy folks who can’t bend over anymore, my observation of course
    • Now Alexa is a whole other story, she can play music ha
  • Each time I turn on the vacuum that sound gives me such joy
    • I know that when I am done I get to see all the junk that has been sucked up
      • Dog hair, food, dirt, etc. (you have a visual of what you have accomplished)
      • The satisfaction of knowing how clean you have made the floors is great (this includes my cars)
    • Stress relief, yes it works no Xanax for me
      • Just think about it:
        • No one can talk to me when I’m vacuuming
        • The TV can’t be on because you can’t hear it
        • Anything left out the night before has to be picked up so I can vacuum
        • If you are sleeping, it’s time to get up
        • If you put in your headphones you can vacuum with Pharrell (HAPPY)
        • I have a valid reason to move the furniture
          • Last week I was lying in bed at 2 am thinking about how I was going to rearrange the bedroom when we got up
          • I know it’s a sickness don’t judge, ha
          • FYI, My husband loves the new layout, win win
