Chronically Parenting- Get a Roomba


      Any of you who know me know how I feel about this magical machine of vacuum sucking, robotic glory. I bought myself one for my Birthday this year and when it came, I literally cried like somebody had just presented me with a new car or free vacation to Maui. Why was I soooo excited? Let me tell you! I hate vacuuming. I know “hate” is a strong word, but I’m using it!!!! Vacuuming sucks the life out of me (pun intended). It takes up the MOST REDICULOUS amount of energy when I’m already dealing with fatigue. Moms and Dads with chronic neuro/auto-immune conditions, STOP DRAINING your day with cleaning. If there is anything that you can do to reduce the amount of cleaning you have to physically do, then do it!

Roomba Tips:

  1. Buy one … NOW
  2. If you cannot afford one, start a Roomba fund.
  3. The first time you vacuum your house with the touch of a button, it may be THE MOST exciting moment of your life. You might even consider a bottle of Champaign for the occasion
  4. Whatever you can do to reduce the amount of energy you spend on daily tasks, do it. Save your energy for your kids, for the things that are important like reading books, doing homework, coloring, and all the amazing and wonderful memory-making activities we can do with our children when we don’t let house cleaning steal away our precious energy ❤
