Addie, I have no Roomba advice for you. I have never owned one. I'll make sure CWS sees this post. I know she has one.

And on the subject of CWS. I'm getting ready for her to arrive at my house. We're going to a Danish Club Luncheon. w00t!

What are you doing?

Have fun, girls!

Addie, I have had a couple Roombas, and also gave a couple to my late mother. She loved it, I love it. The dust pan comes out to empty. It's a stitch to watch Roomba back herself into her charger.

Wish I could join you. Are you still making sure everyone pays up?

There are plenty of You Tube videos with pets, including small dogs that like to chase or even ride on it. The Roomba site says that animals and small children may be afraid of it at first, but do adjust after a while.

Addie, we have the same model as you are mentioning except it also does pet hair. We love it. I love it because it goes for one hour every afternoon (usually when I nap or am out shopping) and that is enough to keep a clean carpet. With basically no pets to worry about you can probably get away with programming it to once or twice a week.

As for entertaining a golden retriever, it entertains our cat but scares our mutt. Violet is basically afraid of her own shadow though.

And yes, watching it find its way home is a hoot!

I had a bit better sleep last night but still not anywhere close to a solid one. My legs are still swollen and sore and I don't know why. I have to phone my orthopedic doctor today as I am supposed to be seeing him in August and haven't gotten the appointment yet (the referral was sent in February).

Oh, I forgot to tell you all my great big news! I got a call yesterday from the YMCA. I had even forgot that I had filled out a survey awhile back that they sent out to all their members. The woman on the phone thanked me for taking part and said that I won the prize of a one year membership starting June 1st to May of next year. That is close to $700! I am so happy! It is even more incentive to keep going there.

I was wondering earlier what I might have for lunch. Rummaging through the freezer for leftovers, I found a container of tomato sauce from another night's dinner.

Having just read about hand made pasta, I decided to make some fettuccine for the pasta. It came out really good and I'm in the middle of enjoying my lunch.

I even have a little leftover for SO's lunch tomorrow.
