Yes. This is a photo of my husband vacuuming the remote control. No. We have not developed a sudden case of extreme OCD. What we have acquired, apparently, is a front door that doesn't stay latched. It has recently taken to opening at random times, and today it came open sometime during the day while we were at work.
This wouldn't have normally been all that big a deal, but today was extraordinarily windy, so the door basically welcomed in our own little sandstorm. Everything was covered in a thick layer of sand--not dust, sand! At one point the Mister said, "I need the vacuum. I don't think the Pledge can handle this. This isn't dust, it's piles of SAND."
