One thing that’s precious to us moms? It’s not money, not sleep (although these are amazing things)…

It’s time.

We often say there simply isn’t enough time in our lives to do the things we want or need to do. One of the things I end up doing (too much) is sweeping my floors. I’d rather be playing with my kids, out shopping… or SLEEPING! Well, now that I have my Roomba iRobot I get that time back!


I have mostly hardwood floors and the iRobot Roomba 870 is actually perfect for that (contrary to what many think). I love not having to spend time sweeping my floors – instead I get that time to do the things I love. Being a pet owner (two cats and a dog) I find shedding a problem – especially in the spring, when my cats seem to lose enough fur to make a whole other cat. So I set the Roomba to motor its way around the house and I don’t have to deal with the flying fur in the corners. Although my cats don’t seem to like it (they are getting use to it at least!).

Last night I set it to get my floors spiffy before I went to bed (which cut my night-cleaning routine by a good 1/2 hour!) and went back into the kitche to find my two cats staring at it work from the dining room table. Get used to it kitties…
