The bane of my existence

You know the old question, "What's your favorite season?" Well, I LOVE winter. I LOVE to snuggle, with a person or blanket. I love snow, and how it looks...yes, you already know this... I love Christmas, and Christmas music, and finding the perfect gift, to make a loved one cry or faint. The grandest excuse to get together with family, and friends.

But...in winter...you have to wear socks. That's right...the bane of my existence...is SOCKS! Six people, six- ok five different kinds, the boys wear the same kind.

These are the kinds of socks that plague my house.
  • Black dress socks
  • Athletic socks
  • Soccer socks
  • mountain biking socks
  • ankle socks
  • knee high socks
  • low ankle socks
  • baby socks
  • girly socks
  • socks with stupid things on them
  • socks with chile peppers on them
  • socks with holes
  • NEW socks
  • need to be thrown away socks
  • stiff socks...needing a bath
  • socks with stripes
  • socks with lace
  • socks with no match
  • nylons masquerading as socks
  • sexy socks...not really, just wanted to add it.
Seriously... My dryer eats them. EATS them I tell you!! There is a black hole SOMEWHERE in my house...FULL OF SOCKS!!! Ok....ONE SOCK...the other one...is floating around the house, lost and alone.

Why can't we just wear flip flips, all year round. I guess that will be on the top of my "PRO list", if we ever decide to move away from Utah. But really, do I want to move to a place with no seasons, just because I HATE socks? Now that's just silly...

Maybe I just need to buy a sock store. There used to be one downtown, HA, apparently...people hate socks as much as me!!

I have to have the perfect sock. It has to be soft and tight. It can't move around when I walk, and it can't come any higher than just above my ankle. It can't have a big seam at the toes, THAT makes me NUTS! I prefer them new...there is nothing like brand new socks, fresh out of the bag. Bag...because I refuse to buy them in singles. The more in the package the better!

And white... I know I'm so not fashion forward. But I just have a weird thing...

Oh...and no comments, on how I'm weird...it is NOT new information!!

I hate socks too. Still wearing flip flops (no snow here yet). I know we have a fairy, gremlin, poltergiest something that goes and steals a sock. I have a whole laundry basket full of loner socks.

That is awesome, so exactally what kind of socks do you wear, that is so specific. Thanks for the giggle.

This is hilarious! I swear we must have the same brand of dryer . . .or a similar black hole. I actually love to wear socks. I have this weird thing about getting my feet dirty. Unfortunately I live in a place where I could wear sandles 9 out the 12 months of the year. I definately will not be casting any stones in the weird department.

You know, It's good to know that there is someone else out there that feels the same way about socks as I do! I only buy a certain brand and they are white. I hate it when they strech out so some days I have to change them multiple times. Ha ha. I don't mind wearing them as much as I do shoes. I wish I didn't have to wear shoes. they are a pain to put on. Oh how funny we are! By the way, I think all houses come with a black hole that eats things like socks and binkies and odd things like that:> See you later!

I have one of the sock eating dryers too!! You would think the would have a warning when you buy the silly thing!!! If they are only able to make dryers that eat socks, then at least they should be required to eat the PAIR!!! Don't ya think???

I'm glad someone else has this incredibly bizarre sock issue. My husband has an ENTIRE DRAWER of mismatched socks. We have no idea where their mates are.

And, Landon has the same sock issue and you do. He hates wearing socks and if they socks don't fit just right he has a meltdown.
