There's simply too much to do, and I'm failing at thinking up interesting and witty blog posts these days. When I realize it's been a week since my last post, I'm surprised. Where did the time go?

It would be nice to have a clone, wouldn't it? Or maybe just an intelligent robot who could do some things for you. I DO have a robot to vacuum for me, and I love it very much. My hubby insisted on getting a Roomba a few months ago; I resisted, as I often do, thinking there was no way a little, round robotic vacuum could do that good a job.

The Roomba (we call him Jeeves in this house, even though he speaks with a lady's voice) ROCKS. I have officially eaten my words and I could not live without Jeeves. Jeeves is so fabulous, in fact, that he has accomplished something quite miraculous: my husband now does most of the vacuuming. Seriously, how could I not be pleased?

Now I need a robot who will do laundry, shop for groceries, cook, and run errands for me. Hubby says I need to hire a maid, but I don't begin to know how to find one. Not to mention I'd have to clean the house before I could let someone else clean the house. πŸ˜‰

The other thing I need is a vacation. Not a vacation from writing, but a vacation from the gray, cold, rainy place where I live. I am so missing Hawaii right about now. *sigh* If I could take my computer and go to a sunny place, I'd happily do it. But, the hubby has to work and the cats need food and water on a daily basis, and going away alone is no fun. So I'm staying home.

I guess I could get out the Hawaiian CDs and the Aloha wear, and pretend I'm enjoying balmy temps and tropical flowers. It might work. (The South is not supposed to be this cold!) If you're living somewhere gray and cold, what do you do to cope with the winter blues? And if you know where to get one of those house-cleaning, errand-running robots, I'd like to know that too. πŸ˜‰
