A Love Letter to my Vacuum Cleaner

Dear Roomba,

While I’ve only known you for a mere 48 hours, you already captured a place in my heart.  I’ve been admiring you from afar for some time now and I am happy to say now that you’ve moved in with me you have already exceeded my expectations.

Dog hair has long been the bane of my existence and with a crawling baby now in the house it irks me to no end.  Picking up Baby G and finding her with a dog hair beard and furry knees makes me want to throw up.  Of course the solution is to vacuum every day (and even then once isn’t always enough), but who has time for that?  I’ve got a baby to feed and care for, dishes to wash, food to cook, baby weight to lose and at some point I’d like to put my feet up and relax for five minutes with my husband.

And then you came into my life and changed everything.  Just yesterday you vacuumed the whole main level while we hung out in the family room and watched a movie.  And all I had to do was push a button.  It was pure bliss and you made it possible.

So thank you.  Thank you for giving me a clean floor, a fur-free baby and a little bit of time for myself.  I look forward to many happy times ahead.
