The Drudgery of Housework

I thought this photo may bring a smile to some faces. It shows me hard at work vacuuming the carpets, sweating and straining to get it nice and clean. You can see the stress in my face as I tackle yet another household chore.... not.
This is my newest baby, yet to be named (please comment name suggestions!). You plug the base in the wall socket, and press clean, and he circles around and around, going under anything he can and around what he can't and after he senses all ground has been covered, he returns to home base and parks himself to charge up again, with a little musical ditty! Cool. He is the iRobot Roomba.

I came across your blog while searching for how to make a moebius. Love your free patterns for the inukshuk and finger puppets and have saved the patterns to knit in the upcoming weeks. Thanks for sharing.

I've had a Roomba for awhile now and wouldn't be without one now! We remodeled and took out most of our carpet. I usually use my Dyson for the living room carpet but totally depend on the Roomba to keep my hardwood clean and the worst of the dog hair cleaned up (two labs). What a great tool it is.
