Aliens in the night

I didn't get to bed until late last night. I didn't program the Roomba, 
 because I didn't know what time DH's surgery was on Monday. I didn't want it to get full or hung up while I was gone. So... I went to bedand 
had barely gotten to sleep when I heard a "beep, beep, bee, dah, la, beep" and the room was bathed in green light as the Roomba crawled off it's dock and began cleaning! I tried to find the remote to send it back to the dock as it swished under the china cabinet, backed up and went the length under the cabinet and headed for the telephone table. I tried to grab a sock just as the greedy beggar sucked it up. It stopped and kept telling me "Clean Brushes" over and over, the 'full light' was glowing and there was no way it would shut off! It wouldn't be happy until I took care of it. I hadn't even unpacked the brush cleaners yet! After I took care of it's problems, I set it back on the dock and unplugged that puppy! It was after two a.m.! I lay there trying to get back to sleep for a couple of hours. DH had been watching a late, late movie, not saying anything. When asked why he didn't come, he said it probably had a default schedule. Butter wouldn't have melted in his mouth.

Blogger and I are at odds again...........

  2. I'm glad to see the comments again too Jim. I think sometimes Sharon doesn't want to listen to our crap... right Sharon? LOL

    Anyway... tell me.. does this work well? Does it get up all the dust and pet hair? Does it scare Jack and Jill half to death? Gracie would have a major fit if she found something like this rolling around the floor.. Hmm.. gives me an idea...

    DH is having surgery? Monday? Anything serious?

    Blogger, internet, printers, compters, etc... ALL FRUSTRATING! I feel your pain!

  3. Hi Sharon, Sorry but I had to have a giggle about the Roomba. It's a wonder you didn't get up to make sure it was doing the job how you liked! Blogger ... mmmm we won't talk about that one. Sue
