I can’t believe I’m saying this…

But I want a vacuum.

I know, I know. I said Santa had better never get me a cleaning item for Christmas. But this year, that’s exactly what I want.

Perhaps it’s because I’m going to be at home more, and I’m honing in on my trophy wife duties. But the thought of waking up to a swept and vacuumed house just sounds so amazing.

Oh yea, did I fail to mention that the vacuum I want is a robotic one? You didn’t actually think I mean I wanted to do it did you?


I’ve heard nothing but good things from people who have them. One of my coworkers says it’s great. It leaves fresh vacuum lines everywhere then docks itself to charge when done. Another woman told me she never vacuums herself anymore, but my husband is skeptical.

“I like to vacuum,” he says. “It’s easy!”

Ya, okay, we agree we both can tolerate running the machine over our living room rug and through two small bedrooms once a month. But sweeping? We both hate it. And this little sucker would do it for us, every day, by itself!

Anyone have a Roomba? Please tell me it’s as awesome as I’m imagining.

And someone tell Santa I changed my mind.

  1. My friend swears by her Roomba. Also, our husbands are 2 peas in a pod. My husband tells me all the time that vacuuming is not as hard as I make it seem:) I remind him that I actually don’t think it’s hard, it’s just mindless. I’d rather just have it done and then focus on other household duties or just not have to vacuum!

  2. My mom loves her Roomba, she has primarily hard wood floors and a dog and it works great.

  3. I haven’t tried one, and don’t know of anyone that has one, but I do think that would be neat. We just moved into a new home that half of it is sunken in, so I am not sure how it would work with that.

  4. I hate vacuuming and LOVE my Roomba. I will say that the vacuum lines are not as neat and orderly as if a person was vacuuming, but it cleans my floor and leaves (crooked) lines so I’m okay. I have carpet and tile flooring and it works on either. Plus, you can schedule it to vacuum at a certain time whenever you want!

    One downside is that if you have it vacuum too large of an area then it will undoubtedly die somewhere random and you’ll have to find it and take it back to the base to charge. But you can get virtual walls to help with that.

    Get it! I love, love, love mine. One of the best investments I’ve made.

  5. I have a Neato! which is very similar to the Roomba and I LOVE IT! I only have carpet in the 5 bedrooms and hallway. It does everything for me but the stairs (when someone invents one of those I will be in heaven!)

  6. My in-laws have one, and I thought it would be awesome to have one. Except that my 3-year-old son is terrified of it. And my son LOVES vacuums and isn’t scared of anything — except the Roomba. We have to cover it up with a towel when he goes into the basement, where the evil Roomba lives.

  7. I have mostly tile and love roomba! Great fire keeping floors clean with a crawling baby.
    I have heard kids are scared of it. Mine would have to learn to deal!

  8. Since, we have hardwoods I want the one that dust mops. I’m constantly dust mopping and sweeping our floors. While it’s a great workout for the arms, it would be nice to have a break.

  9. ME TOO!!! A friend of mine has one and showed me all t does and it’s amazing. Our new place is way bigger than our old one and I cannot keep up with cleaning the floors.

  10. I’ve never commented before but I had to on this post. I am domestically challenged and room a has changed my life!!!! I adore it. I’ve had one for 5 years (2 actually the first one broke 6 months ago) I love waking up to freshly vacuumed floors. The first two homes we used it with we’re 100% hardwood. The current house is carpet and I have to say I love roomba equally on both types of floors. It motivates me to pick up at night because I know roomba is going to automatically come on!!!! I love it for spilled messes you just hit spot clean, walk away, and come back like it never happened. I can not recommend this product enough!!! I recommend buying from Costco. We were able to return our broken one after 4 1/2 years and get a new one without any hassel

  16. Similarly, don’t put anything on your dog that has potentially
    harmful substances like glitter. Polar bears in the Canadian Hudson Bay area have lost weight and are losing their fitness due to the ice breaking up two weeks earlier than usual in the spring months.

  19. Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting
    to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
