Long day

Today was a long day. I was woken up at about 5:30 this morning by the sound of my bedroom wall creaking. It was amazingly disconcerting, but once I figured out the sound was being caused by the 50+ mph (low highway speed for those non-miles people) wind we were having, it made a little more sense. But I had a ridiculously hard time getting back to sleep - I don't know why I bothered. Anyway, I got up early again and I made a serious dent in the living room mess today. Serious. Like, there is this HUGE area of floor that I can SEE and it not covered with STUFF. It's amazing. Really. I wish I could vacuum it, but my roomba is not charging properly. It sits on the docking station ALL THE TIME, but when I go to use it, it only runs for about 15 minutes tops and dies. Also, after un-docking, the light is already at "medium" power. Hm. I really don't want to pay 60 for a new battery or whatever price it is. I might as well just get a real vacuum. It has lost its appeal and the set up of my apartment makes it impossible to schedule cleaning since I have to set up the virtual walls to do anything.

I'm setting up the crockpot tonight to make a breakfast apple crisp. Hopefully I'll get the rest of the tidying done tomorrow morning and afternoon. YAY. I've got 1 book to ship tomorrow, but also 2 packages and a bunch of bills/taxes stuff, so I'll be going to the post office in the morning. Let's hope I can manage to leave the apartment at 9am or earlier.

Bedtime! Hope everyone had a happy darwin/lincoln day.

That's a dead battery in your roomba.

Nooooooooooooo! :-(

Yeah, I ran it again this morning and it went from green to red in less than 5 minutes. *sigh*

It really bothers me that people are putting Darwin and Lincoln on the same line, or worse, mentioning Darwin and not Lincoln. :(

Sorry! :-( (PS - be on the look out for a package from me)

And nobody is even MENTIONING Z's dad's birthday. He must feel REALLY left out. :(

My bed was shaking from the wind, I couldn't fall asleep after the cat got me up.

My cellphone is like that, it'll charge for 20 minutes and claim the battery is full, then an hour later I'm down to 3 bars.

That wind was insane, but it made me feel like I was back in Rochester, NY so it was bizarrely comforting.

I really want one of those Roomba thingies. They sound so neat. On the plus side, I am having a love affair with my Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

I was just talking about magic erasers the other day! They are awesome and made of win. And magic. I swear they are actually magic.

I don't think I could recommend a roomba. It's more a novelty than anything else. I need a real vacuum. I guess I'll look for that on craigslist next.

We need an upstairs vacuum. I hate dragging that thing upstairs. And I should add: I don't.

Did you use it frequently? I've only used mine once so far. Just wondering how many uses I can plan on before needing a new battery. If you think about it though, that battery is doing a lot, considering all that the machine does.

You must be living under a rock. Maybe they don't have a big market for them in Canada?
