My Trusty Assistant

I am always talking about how planning your day will make your chaos a bit more bearable. In fact I have another blog where I talk about just that. Truth be told, my days are well planned, but boy oh boy, they never turn out that way. I either have to run an errand, or change a million poop diapers, attend to urgent admin, and so on and so forth.

However, I do have a few tricks up my sleeve that creates the illusion that I have my ducks lined up and saluting me at the same time. One of those tricks would be having a trusty assistant. I am not talking about little Gracie from down the road that wants to earn babysitting money, nor am I talking about Mary from Mary and co cleaning company. No, I am talking about my automated vacuum cleaner named Roomba.

Roomba or better known as iRobot, is my trusty assistant. An amazing addition to my cleaning schedule. I have an older model, but works hard and works well. All I have to do is place Roomba in a room, tap start and off it goes. It looks a bit space aged, but trust me, even if it looked like something out of a horror movie, the investment is worth every cent.

There are so many options available on Amazon. However, here you will see a similar version of my trusty assistant, iRobot. This is the iRobot Roomba 606 Robot Vacuum – Good for Carpets and Hard Floors – Dirt Detect Technology – 3 Stage Cleaning System, 1 Year Brand Warranty.
I have to mention “As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.”

While Roomba does the floor cleaning, I get to attend to other chores. Sometimes, I get totally distracted and end up spending time with my children. That could be reading a book to them, have dance parties or just have a good old tickle session on the floor Roomba just cleaned. (wink wink)

I hope that this trick helps you as well as it does me. I don’t even know what life was like before Roomba.

Happy Cleaning!
