Roomba update

The Roomba is up and running! It really is a funny thing to watch! I haven’t had an opportunity to try out the accessories yet (virtual wall, remote, etc.) but hope to this weekend. It’s nice to be having your house vacuumed while you’re doing other things, though!

As far as the cats – Frosty is still trying to figure the thing out – he just sorta shrinks down and watches the thing go ’round and ’round. Knowing him as I do, though, one of these days he’s just going to pounce on that sucker!

Sneakers, as I suspected, is PETRIFIED of the thing! This should come as no surprise as she’s afraid of her own shadow! Amazing that a cat as jumpy as her is actually a hunter!

Anyway, everyone, enjoy your long weekend (no, I’m not running the marathon Monday!). Sounds like the weather is going to be PERFECT!!!

The Roomba is here! The Roomba is here!

As some of you may know, we recently ordered a Roomba (a robotic vacuum for those that aren’t familiar!) We were much in need of a new vacuum cleaner anyway and we got a deal on one that we just couldn’t refuse!

I have to be honest about this – I’m not sure if I’m more excited about having a vacuum cleaner that does the work itself (I hope!) or the anticipation of seeing how Frosty reacts to it! Due to the fact that he is deaf, the old vac does not bother him. In fact, he thinks it’s his friend! Sneakers, on the other hand, is PETRIFIED of the thing! In fact, she’s afraid of the Swiffer so I can just imagine how she’s going to react!

Well, the Roomba arrived via UPS late yesterday afternoon. We didn’t have the time to get it set up and charged but I’m hoping that hubby is able to get home from work early enough to get it going today!

Oh…. this could be fun! (or maybe not???)

Stay tuned….
