LOL, I spent the entire day cleaning my house yesterday. I just woke up and looked around. I love my husband and children. Why do I even bother, LOL!!

LOL - hubbies, children, dogs, cats, and laundry will just kick your butt.

I must do 12 normal sized loads a week for the six of us. The only thing that keeps it handle-able are the pretty machines that can do three loads at a time sing to me when each load is done.

I once threw away all the socks and bought new ones, because it was easier than trying to find the matches. icon_redface.gif

That was years ago. I now tell myself " You're an adult, deal with it."
Plus my husband does the laundry now. icon_lol.gif

I have to buy every person a different kinds of socks with different color heals and toes. One has purple,one pink,one light blue, one grey, one light pink, one white. And they only get the one kind. Everyone digs their own out of the sock load and puts them away. Every one hates matching socks and usually don't. But since they have only one kind of sock it's OK.

Now my hubby keeps buying himself different kinds of socks and I can't get him to understand why it is easier for me and the kids. So his socks are a mess.

I do the exact same thing! I have five kids, so I have to!

Sadsmile, that is a great idea! I do my own wash (separate from my parents) and somehow my socks go missing. I swear that fancy new washing machine my mom just got eats them. If it were not so cold here I would wear flip flops all year long for that reason alone.

my answer to the sock problem

simple and they work

But don't you get a funny pucker in the socks where they are bunched in those sock locks? Like how hard socks are that went through the wash still balled up?

Sock belly buttons? icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

That would bother me and mine. We have to have our socks fitting on our feet just so. I also have to find socks with the smoothest seams. Or we have morning sock drama which results in... someone running through the house growling and yanking their shoes off to adjust the seams.

Are anyone else's kids this picky about funny stuff?

nope - not a problem I've noticed.

and I don't have to think in the morning.

one big benefit --- one color for black socks, another for dark blue socks and which I can never tell apart with bleary morning eyes.

My 4 yr. old daughter is picky about socks too! We live in Florida so she can wear sandals much of the time but has to wear sneakers to school. I buy the expensive (to me!) 'seamless' socks from Striderite and I still have to take her socks and shoes off and 'redo' them on her school days. It drives me crazy! I can hear my mom laugh when she tells me I was the same way. icon_smile.gif

My son is funny about his socks. When he puts his shoes on if they're not right he picks at them and grunts until he can fix it.

I am too know. They have to fit right. I now (thanks to dh) can only wear ankle socks and they have to be thin. Big bulky fluffy socks drive me nuts!

My dd loves toe socks! Those are wierd to me.

I have lots of clothes to iron. I don't send my blouses to the cleaners anymore (it costs to much) and I iron them myself. I am waiting for Black Friday to get myself a steamer to help me with my mound of blouses.

I have 2 girls, a 5 yr old and a 3 year old, their socks are very close in size, so I buy them at Old Navy. They sell socks there that have the size on the bottom, its written on there with that non-slip stuff, and its in the same color as the sock, so you can see it, but it doesn't stand out. I don't know how far up they go (size wise) but it works for us.

We each have our own socks as well. The are all white, but completely different. Makes things so much easier.

You guys and my dryer buzzer just reminded me that I had a load in the dryer as well. Sadsmile, I just love your little laundry monster. That's just to cute.

Don't you just hate the sound of the dryer buzz???

Mine chimes a delightfully triumphant tune to announce the cycle has competed, and... AND I can adjust the volume and even turn it off.

Bellowing the "Tim The Tool-man Tailor" bragging huff. icon_wink.gif

When growing up, our dryer played 'how dry I am!'
Miss that, sometimes.
