10. I spent time looking into it yesterday.....
I don't know how affordable this would be for me. I, again, run into the problem that I have to get other people to do this stuff for me. I suspect I could get a sandbox relatively cheaply. The ones I found online weren't TOO bad. I'd love to build a simple one, but that just isn't going to happen -- someone else would have to do it.
But then I get into the cost of the sand, getting someone to go buy it, bring it here and fill the sandbox. Unfortunately, I just don't have a big cadre of friends to do this stuff -- I got disabled not that long after I moved here and I'm relatively isolated as a result -- it's tough for me to get out and do things (including wheelchair transportation problems). So that means paying the people I have available to do this stuff. Analyzing all of this yesterday, the dollar signs started to flash in my head. We shall see! I'll look for a sandbox on Freecycle & Craig's list. Again, getting it here is an issue -- have to get someone to pick that up for me. Something delivered is easier.
Ugh, it's mostly MY limitations that get in the way and which perpetuate the problem! Very frustrating!
