Lord knows I don't like vacuuming, but the only thing worse than sucking up dirt is the actual dirt itself. I don't quite understand how bits and pieces gather so quickly or randomly around my carpeted areas but they do. Dust bunnies, flakes of food, and mud from outdoors all seem to stare at me until I pull out the old vacuum and do something about it. Besides, it seems a freshly suctioned rug makes the whole home appear fresh and clean, which is why I do it a few times a week. It's an addiction that has thankfully gotten easier since the Roomba came along to share the responsibility!
