Woot! Woot!

Our Robomower now has a sibling! We just got a Roomba vacuum from Woot! today. Our current vac is about eight years old and is starting to show its age. Reportedly, the Roomba does a good job as long as you don’t ask too much of it. It’s the same way with the robomower. If I let the backyard get really long the robot has a hard time mowing, but there’s really no reason to let it go that far. I just set it out once a week and it does its thing perfectly. I’ll use the big mower on the back yard for the first cut of the season or occasionally to pick up weedeaten shavings along the edges, but the yard zamboni does most of the work.

Erin pushed me over the edge on both devices. She absolutely LOVES the robomower, even though I’m the one it helps. We both vacuum but it’ll be nice to have this do 90% of the work for us. And I even like the color…

Woot still has some left until midnight. nudge, nudge…
