Love Letter to Rosie

Dear Rosie,

I would like to take a moment to pause, and express how much I love you. There are times when maybe I take you for granted, and that makes me sad. I never want to do that. I love you, and I appreciate you. You light up my life. I love your gentle curves, and the sweet noises you make at night. Even as I type this from my bed, I can hear you, and it makes me smile.

I don't like to think about it, but a few weeks ago you were gone. Vanished. I didn't want to believet it, but I was worried I might never see you again. Devastation. I was lost without you. The kids were horrified.

Weeks went by, and we anticipated your arrival. Then it happened. We were told to expect you on Friday. Anxiously, we waited. Then gloriously, we came home, and there you were. Sitting on our door step. We quickly brought you inside, and the kids surrounded you. EXCITEMENT! Or was it relief?

Either way, we will never have to mop our floors again! WELCOME HOME, ROSIE! WE MISSED YOU!

I hope Brian isn't feeling threatened by all this affection you're sending somewhere else. Maybe he should go out and get a chain saw?

Oh my gosh. Is this thing for real? Does it work? Does it leave a residue? Can it navigate around islands and stuff in the kitchen? I watch the video and I'm hooked. I need more details.

Oh yes, it's for real. If you have hardwood floors, GET ROSIE! She picks up crumbs, mops and squeegies all in one swoop. And the floors feel cleaner than when we hand-mop. I hate mopping and would be lost without her!

I"m so glad to hear a positive "review". I've wanted one forever but I've been so scared that it was too good to be true. Hmmm... maybe I'll have to buy one for myself for my birthday....
