In Texas, I’m constantly vacuuming up dirt, leaves and tiny rocks that come in on shoes. I thought we had a rule of not wearing shoes in the house . . take them off outside and put them on a rack when you walk in the door but apparently we don’t have that rule.
In MO, we have a garage so I have a flat tray like thing I bought at Aldi last year for the apartment because you walked in onto carpet there. I brought it here, put it in the garage and asked Vince to take his shoes off in the garage and put them on that tray, especially if they are wet.
Yesterday morning, I woke up to this:
I didn’t even say anything to him but that looks like there had been several trips in and out, lots of leaves and dirt on the rug. Dang it!
A lot of it is because of the dirt work we just had done but I think we’re going to have to have another discussion about wearing shoes inside the house. By the way, those are his slippers that he bought to keep inside and wear only inside and my guess is . . they’ve been outside but that’s purely speculation on my part.
