I am sure most people know how dryers eat socks because you can never find the other sock when you take the load out of the dryer. In case this has happened to you I wanted to let you know that your dryer doesn't really eat your socks, it just sucks them in to a vortex and sends them to us. We have serious sock problem in our humble abode. On Saturday me, Lexi and Liam sat down and sorted an entire laundry basket of unmatched socks. The results of this sock sort are as follows.
These socks were blessed to be matched with their twin and go on to be worn again by some happy feet.
"The ones with their twins"
You may think hmm there are 7 people residing in the abode here those twin socks don't seem like very many for that such huge number of piggies needing covering. But alas those are just the poor orphans that found their long lost twins in the great sock sort of February 2009.
Below are the orphan socks, the orphans that keep multiplying and creating more orphans. The orphans that will soon be joined by all the other orphans that we have been finding hiding in the playroom, on the stairs, under the couch, in the laundry, near the dryer, stuffed in shoes, behind the bathroom door, in the toy boxes and more secret locations discovered by not me and I don't know ( You know them they take your socks and leave them strange places when you aren't looking) . Or perhaps some of these are from the great dryer vortex and belong to some of you. If you see one you recognize feel free to let me know and I will be happy to send it on it's way to you.
"Where oh where has my little friend gone oh where oh where could it be"
Just to try and put in to perspective just how bad or sock problem is here. I will now introduce you to the happy home of girls socks. This is wear socks deemed girlie live with other girlie socks until they are deemed worthy of being honored by little piggies.
"Welcome to Girlie Sockville"
That's right an entire drawer of socks deemed girlie. If you look close you will spy socks with lace, a pink socks, and purple socks, kitty socks, minnie mouse socks, christmas, easter, halloween, Tuesday, leap year, baby, big kids, way to big, short socks, long socks, old socks and even new with tag socks. They all live together in girlie sockville. If you want to visit it is right below Boy Sock Bunker, and down the hall from Tights and Leggings Land. I will now move upstairs from Girlie Sockville and introduce you Boy Sock Bunker.
"Boy Sock Bunker"
Boy Sock Bunker isn't nearly as colorful or exciting as Girlie Sockville. There isn't a lot of exciting options in the bunker. Mostly just red, white and blue. There are the occasional Halloween sock and if you look closely you will find a pair of green printed Christmas socks that Landon had to have for his collection. Boy Sock bunker is not nearly as populated as Girlie sockville, however that is because Boy Sock Bunker is mostly stocked for the middle boy. The big boy refuses to allow his socks to reside in the bunker, they live in his room, away from all the doings of the bunker as they are much to grown up to be part of the bunker. They live here in I am to big for them land.
"I am too big for them"
Things are different in I am too big for them land. You're not limited to frolicking only with other socks. Here socks come and live happily with bathing suits, and undies. It is a much more diverse place as far as residents. However the sock population is pretty mundane. You mostly have the white socks with green Hanes written on the toe. There are a few exceptions like the tan dress socks in the bottom corner but mostly it's boring white socks residing in this land. If you are in need of some adorable cuteness, there is only one place you can go for that in socks. That has to be itty bitty baby socks nursery.
"Aww it's Itty Bitty Baby Sock Nursery"
Aren't they so cute. Adorable teeny tiny baby socks. They live here in the nursery until they are big enough to join the bunker. They hope some day to be big enough to go to I am too big for them but right now they are safely tucked away in the nursery resting and growing bigger every day.
There are two more lands to visit on the tour of the sock residences of our humble home. They are not nearly as exciting but I don't want them to feel left out of they might pack their things and hit the road and then I would be the one with cold piggies. I leave you with the land of the big socks.
"Honey's Work Sock Haven"
"White Sock Wonderland"
Thanks for stopping by and be sure and let me know if you see any friends missing from your house. With so many residents it is hard to identify a stranger that snuck in to the mix.
