This past weekend was full of activities, so when I finally got home all I wanted to do was nothing. Of course when I walked in the door and moved from one room I wanted to relax in to the other I realized a few things; I needed to clean the floor (the dog hair was starting to show), the kitchen needed to be cleaned (which my boyfriend was already on top of), plus I had clothes that needed to be hung up. This situation set up a classic inner struggle that I often have… if I notice something needs to be done, I have a hard time relaxing until it is done, but all I want to do is relax, so this inner battle with myself ends up showing it’s ugly colors and the people around me can sense my bad mood.
Just as I started to hang up my clothes I remembered something that quickly jolted me right out of my not-so-fun mood. Recently we received the iRobot Roomba Pet Series as a gift. I remembered the week before I had plugged it in to charge, so it was all ready to do the work for me. Guess what? That is exaclty what it did, while my boyfriend and I watched a movie in the other room.
How great is that? Now if only I could get an iRobot to hang up my clothes!
