I forgot to mention one of my favorite birthday gifts – a new roomba! The new roomba is a smart one. You can program it to clean rooms at certain times. It will even go back to the charger when the battery is running low. Now I can just push a button and my dirty kitchen floor will bother me no more.
This is in fact our second roomba. The first roomba was a wedding gift and we basically wore it out. The battery would no longer hold a charge. Wade found a hack site and discovered way to put a RIGID battery in the roomba. Working for TTi, we have access to lots of RIGID batteries so Wade tried the hack himself. Wade has proved to me that it turns on, but he hasn’t made it all pretty yet. It is still taking up residence in my living room chair….
