About 8 years ago, we had our floors done. Our house had the original Terrazzo floors, which we thought about polishing up and keeping. However, they were pretty much unfixable. My husband's friend convinced us to install 24 by 24 marble. We went out shopping and loved it. We bought Crema Selecta marble and a pretty decent price. We had it installed and polished. Wow, our floors were like mirrors. We vowed that day that we would have our floors polished every year. We did so the first year...and never again. Marble is a pretty delicate floor, spill something on it and get to wiping quick and dust and dirt plus walking equals dull, lifeless floors. That's were we are right now. There is NO shine left.
Since I've been on this major getting the house fixed up phase, I'm having my floors polished today. I'm ecstatic. My husband agreed, but on one condition, I must vacuum daily. Umm. Yea, that's not me. My floors get vacuumed and cleaned every Thursday when the house gets cleaned. There is only two of us and not a lot of traffic. So guess what I got.
The iRobot 560 Roomba Vacuuming Robot, Black and Silver and can I tell you that I'm in love. Like real love. Like I have him scheduled to go off everyday and when it starts I actually feel a little butterfly in my stomach. Is that normal. Is it normal that I have found myself talking to it. It's like I'm cleaning my house and I'm sitting on the computer or laying on the couch or maybe even napping. Well actually, the first day it started, I found myself lying on the floor watching it under furniture and following it room to room to see what it did. As I'm typing this, I promise you I'm not nuts, promise.
I've had it for a week and I'm really liking it. It does make it around the house to every room. It's weird how it goes into a room, leaves, and goes back to it again after. It really does vacuum and it does a good job at it. I've had places in my house vacuumed that I'm sure nobody has touched in years. Our kitchen cabinets are on legs and it actually gets under the cabinets. Woo hoo. The best part about it, it docks itself when the house is done. I don't even have to worry about that. Love I tell you.
