Welcome, Rosie!


…Life’s About a Dream

is pleased to announce

the arrival of Rosie the Roomba

April 1, 2008


20″ x 17.5″ x 5.5″



She’s here! After a long, tedious labor, Rosie arrived charged up and ready to go. She is currently vacuuming as I blog!! It really is amazing technology. She works herself into the corners, underneath the couches and chairs. Unbelievable. I wish my camera was not broken, or I would have a picture or video of her doing her thing.  I am so happy…or is it I am happy that I can continue to be lazy? 🙂

Disclaimer:  This is probably the closest I will ever get to having a girl.  We all know BP and I only make boys.

    Here’s hoping for many happy years with Rosie!

    Congrats on the addition of Rosie! I bet life has gotten a little bit easier since her arrival!?

  9. Yaya
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 05:52:53

    Does that thing really work? Every time I see an ad for it I think of the Saturday Night Live skit where there’s the roomba woman’s vibrator…hahahaha!

  10. Heather
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 06:21:46

    LOL I was just about to write almost the same exact comment as Yaya’s right above! I totally thought of the SNL commercial parody for “woomba” and also am very intrigued as to how well the roomba works! Now that it has been a few months, do you still love it?

    I think if we had one of those (I can dream, can’t I?) that our cat would go INSANE. She already goes nuts when we open the DVD player to put a DVD in the thingy and then close it again.

    Thanks for the chuckle! Cheers!

    oooh…I want one of those. Maybe Santa could bring one? Do they get stuck?

  12. Astrid
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 06:29:10

    OMG! That birth announcement is hilarious! Sooo…do they really work? I just can’t imagine a thing like that actually picking up stuff. Is it on all the time just zooming around the house???

    I might just consider another nine months of water retention if I can give birth to one of those myself!

    I’m pretty sure my kids would think this was some kind of ride-on toy just for them!
    Best wishes with your new arrival!

    I’m so jealous! I need a roomba since I so despise vacuuming! Happy SITS day!

    When my boys were young I called them Thing 1 & Thing 2.

    Cool. I’ve heard of people naming their Roomba’s but have never met anyone who actually had one. Lucky Duck!

  22. Karol
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 08:08:35

    *sniff* you must be so proud!! 😉

    You are one lucky lady! I think if we had one, my two year old would chase it around….hmmm.. I think I need to get one!

    Happy SITS day!

  23. Karen
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 08:13:19

    ha ha! If you like Roomba, try out a Scooba as well. We had one and it did a good job wet cleaning our kitchen floor. 🙂

    Go rosie….and congrats on being the FB….

  25. Preston
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 08:22:48

    I had to Google Roomba just to see what it was. I think it’s totally awesome. It wouldn’t work in my house because I’d have to pick up all the clothes I throw on the floor. (Well it wouldn’t work in my bedroom at least) Plus, I think my two dalmatians would attack it. Congrats on you SITS day!

  26. Jenners
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 08:33:58

    Happy SITS Day! I’ve always wanted one of these but think my son would be terrified!!! Goodness knows this house needs constant vacuuming!!

  27. Miss Neu
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 08:38:36

    I’ve always wanted one of those, but wasn’t sure if they really worked. Now if only they had a machine that also put things away, I’d be set!

  28. Lynn
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 08:40:18

    I want one! I hate vacuuming! Well, and any chore really!

    Happy SITS day!

    Happy SITS day, SITSta!

    Cute post!

    We have a pharmacy robot at work that delivers meds to the ICU. Her name is Rosie, too. We have a lot of fun teasing her…she speaks in English and Spanish, and starts freaking out if you get in her way: “My way is blocked. Please stand clear!” over and over, first in one language, then the other.

    Yeah, we’re easy to entertain.

  30. Jerrie
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 09:03:53

    That is fantastic! I want one. No better name than Rosie!

  31. brandy
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 09:05:59

    How awesome…what a lucky lady. I have a “rosie” in my house too…his name is stepson and one of his chores (that he gets paid for) is vacuuming. LOL!

  32. Sera @ Laughing Through the Chaos
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 09:08:42

    Happy SITS day! I love how you made it like a baby announcement. Yay for Rosie!

    I want a Rosie Roomba for Christmas, only a Rosie Roomba will do.

    What a cute blog! I totally want one of those robot vacuum things to help me clean up after my very messy two pets. 😉

    A roomba would be so much fun, but I think it would give my dog a heart attack!

  44. wenderful
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 10:03:42

    I love my Roomba too. We pick up the playroom, turn on the Roomba, close the doors, and an hour later the room is nice and clean with beautiful vacuum lines and all. It even knows enough not to fall down the stairs. It’s great!
    Enjoy your Rosie. Happy SITs day!

    I’m seriously DYING for a Roomba. That and a GPS.
    Maybe in another life…

    I am sooo jealous. I have seen those Rosies out there and wanted one, but sadly, automated maid devices are out of my current budget. Maybe someday!! *sigh*

    Enjoy your Rosie, I know I would if I was you! 🙂

  50. Denise
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 10:22:22

    Oh my gosh, I saw a “rosie” yesterday on line and I wanted it sooo bad but I was apprehensive… until just now! Whoa! I’m ready to get her working on my floor!

    Dec 10, 2008 @ 10:30:21

    Hah. Cute way of telling about it. We bought one a long time ago, used it a few times and now it’s at the bottom of the closet waiting to be given away. I got sick of cleaning it out. I’d much rather take my Dyson out now. How do you feel about it now a few months later?

    I’m also a mom to two little boys – how many times a week do you get asked “when are you going to try again for a girl?”

    Round house to the head…congrats on being Saucy!!

    I feel so bad for coveting Rosie! My Dyson is going to know I’ve been thinking about getting one and our relationship will never be the same! *lol*

    Congrats on your SITS day!

    Hey, I just remembered I have Roomba! It’s been buzzing in perpetual circles under our guest room bed for about three years now.

    Pretty sure that spot’s clean now…

    I am incredibly jealous! The only time I’ve even seen a Roomba in action is when it was on Rob & Big (my husband loves that show), and their dog Meaty attacked it. I hope Rosie does much better! Do you have an apron for Rosie?

  70. Tranquility
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 12:06:52

    Lucky You!! I’ve got to invest in one of those someday!

    Dec 10, 2008 @ 12:24:29

    I have been wondering how well the Roomba works. Do you have carpet, tile or wood flooring? I’m very interested in anything that makes my job easier!

  76. Amanda
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 12:25:12

    I want a Rosie!! lol I’m glad you finally got your “girl”. If you ever want one a little more realistic looking that backtalks and yells and then begs you to paint her nails, you’re welcome to borrow mine 😉

    Good Morning from your SITSta!

  77. Jennifer
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 12:40:18

    I have the next best thing to a “Rosie”…my mother-in-law watches my baby every day at our house…and darned if she doesn’t get bored and do the laundry a few times a week! 🙂 I’ve been blessed more than I deserve!

  78. Mrs. Cox
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 12:41:11

    I’m jealous…okay, envious 😉 I’m just glad we finally got rid of our disgusting clunker of a vacuum and finally bought a Dyson. Expensive as hell, but totally worth it. I actually don’t mind vacuuming now. =)

    Came via SITS! Grats on your day =)

  79. Blue Castle
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 12:58:01

    Wow. You are a blessed lady. 🙂 I’ve been tempted to try and save my money, for one of those, but I am not sure it would work right in my house full of hardwood floors. Still, I’m a little bit jealous.

    We had a Roomba once and it didn’t seem to be doing the job so we strapped a camera on it (the RoombaCam) and watched a couple hours of the Roomba getting stuck in corners of our house. I’ve heard the technology has improved though.

  103. Courtney

    Dec 10, 2008 @ 20:39:01

    Look, it’s the Goodyear Blimp (while you’re looking I’m swiping Rosie)! Oh well, I tried. In case you’re wondering, this is what we say when we want to steal someone’s food at our house 🙂 Happy SITS day!

  111. Lisa @ Serah's
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 21:29:58

    I have been trying to convince myself to buy one of those since they came out. I’m wearing myself down.

  112. Lisette
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 22:12:09

    Oh I SO want one of these. Now that they’ve come down in price I may be able to get one some day. Please update us on how yours works.


  113. Mandy
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 22:13:14

    The Roomba is still rocking!! It’s great and I use it at least 2 times a week, if not more. I.love.Rosie. y’all just need to get one.

  114. debi b
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 23:11:56

  115. mrsbear
    Dec 10, 2008 @ 23:53:01

    I wish. Our dogs shed so much that it would probably give Rosie an aneurysm, but I so need one of these.

  116. Judy Haley
    Dec 11, 2008 @ 15:19:53

    awesome! I’ve been wanting to adopt a roomba ever since they came out – but we all know how expensive it is to adopt. Maybe someday.

    Ok so I’m way late on your SITS day. It’s been a bad week, but I’m finally making the rounds. I love the birth announcement. I totally get your excitement, and I hope she continues to be a wonderful addition to your family.
