I’m not sure where August has gone. One day I’m dropping the kid off for her first day back to school, thinking about all the work I’ve got to get caught up on this month before my crazy season starts and now, we’re just a few days away from September – and guess who isn’t caught up on any of that work.
With September upon us, we are in full-on Halloween prep mode. The Circus and I are plotting out our Halloween costumes (currently thinking Cruella and dalmation), making new Halloween decorations, putting it all out, and are planning our Halloween party.
October is of course filled with Halloween festivities and then also two trips for us.
Then we’ll quickly move into November – hello Thanksgiving, two concerts and another trip.
And finally – Christmas is really just around the corner. I don’t need to tell you how insane December can get with all the decorating, gift buying and holiday parties.
And of course, on top of all that we have the weekly shuttling around to riding lessons, dance lessons, etc.
Busy is very often our normal. This time of the year though, it’s elevated to “hold onto your britches boys and girls.”
Besides having a husband who is always willing to take anything off my plate he can, I’m also happy to now have an in-house dynamic duo to take care of some of the cleaning and at least make things around the house a little less hectic.
This pair takes care of both the vacuuming and mopping.
I got the iRobot® Roomba® i7+ this summer (we call her Greta) and she was a godsend – you can read about that here. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better though, Betty went and proved me wrong.
Betty is my new iRobot® Braava jet® m6 – and after one run, it’s clear she does a better job mopping than I ever have.
Crazy, right? What you’re seeing there is one clean unused mopping pad and what one mopping pad looked like after it mopped just three rooms in my house.
I hung my head in shame and also jumped for joy at the same time when I saw this.
The iRobot® Braava jet® m6 is designed to clean all well-sealed floors. Just put on one of the cleaning pads and it does its thing. Betty can do full on Wet Mopping or Dry Sweeping.
The Wet Mopping Pads feature wicking fibers help tackle sticky messes and kitchen grease. Dry Sweeping Pads use electrostatic force to capture dirt, dust and pet hair.
Betty has a Low Profile Design so that she can easily clean under furniture and other hard-to-reach places.
She also mops snugly right up against corners and edges.
Just like my iRobot® Roomba i7+, the m6 also uses Imprint™ Smart Mapping. Betty learns my home’s floor plan, remembers the rooms and determines the best way to clean. This also means she can decipher my kitchen from my living room or my office from my bathroom and so on. And that means I can choose which rooms to have her mop. I can also set up a mopping schedule for Betty. It’s all right within the iRobot® Home App.
The Braava jet® m6 robot mop can dry sweep as well, however I prefer to do all my sweeping and vacuuming with my Roomba® i7+. In fact, these two can actually communicate with each other.
The two use Imprint™ Link Technology and with a couple taps on your phone using the iRobot® Home App, when Greta finishes vacuuming, she automatically tells Betty to mop. Boom. How awesome is that? Fully automated floor cleaning.
Right now thru September 7th, you can save up to $150 on select iRobot® floor care robots – including the Braava jet® m6 robot mop. This is the perfect time to treat yourself and take a little something off your plate during the upcoming “hold onto your britches” season.
Godspeed my friends. May we all come out of this season only marginally crazier than we were before – because really, we all know not to expect much more.
