Does this room look clean?
Oh, it very well might to the untrained eye...but to the bare skinned foot it is far from clean...
this is what I collected after one minimal sweep around my living room floor. I wasn't hunting in the out of the way cracks and crevices for this dirt it was all over my floor - and 95% of it is sand!
SAND! Before I go any further let me tell you that it was my idea to put the sandbox in the backyard - the large sandbox - as my mother's day present no less. A great way to occupy the kids I thought - what a wonderful gift for everyone...well let me tell you now that this gift just keeps on giving - over and over again in gritty footsteps that when all swept together forms a huge sandhill.
Sand has become my enemy - its on my floors, in the kids beds, collecting in the closets as it falls off of the shoes and even in my kid's (AVERY!) hair. So just be warned - if you ever think about getting a sandbox - know that it will eventually come inside to haunt and torment the mother.
