Yes you heard me right, 26 socks.

Honest to God, cross my heart and... well never mind.

That's the number of "extra" socks I have in my lost sock sack. Whenever I run across a loner I toss it in this bag in our laundry room and every now and then I sit down, dump the bag out and become matchmaker.

Usually I have quite a few that find their partners, but today I only found 3, which left 26 socks to face another month or so all lonely and alone.

Trust me on this. I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't see it with my own eyes, but there are seriously 26 different kinds of socks here!!

Where do the others go??

I didn't even know that many different kinds of socks existed.

There must have been10 variations of Hanes socks: Different sizes, colored "Hanes" logos, some with the grey toe and heel reinforcements, some without.

3 or 4 kinds of Old Navy socks: Again, different colors sizes and styles.

Nike...Addidas.... and lots of plain white socks without any brand whatsoever.

Long socks, short socks, big socks, little socks.


(Gah- am I starting to remind you of a certain Dr. Seuss book?)

Where do they all come from!?!

I firmly believe they were breeding in that there bag.

I guess I better go Google 'sock breeding' and figure out how to put a stop to it before it get's out of hand.

    That totally socks! hehe

    I do this same thing with cups and lids in my house about 3 times a year. Various cups and lids sit on the counter and have a 2 day countdown. If their mates are not found in the given time limit, into the trash they go!

    Good luck with the future matchmaking. =)

    Kristen, that sounds like life at my house! I'd bet the boys are worse at "losing" a sock than the Princess is, huh?! Happy matchmaking (and know that I sincerely feel for you!).

    Hah! I've got you beat! I've got one of those large Ziploc bags half full of lost socks! The baby's socks are the worst!
