Socks and Tupperware

Yesterday was laundry and clean out the fridge day. Honestly my most favorite day of the week...NOT, but the Maid quit and the cook walked out so...well...I am on my own. There comes a day in every woman's life when you have to face the music. Mine came early. Anywhooo. As I am folding laundry and pulling socks out and mating them a thought crossed my mind. How many of us have unmated socks lurking around the house? I know growing up my mom would have BASKETS of unmated socks that we would have a party once a month and get it done. Maybe it was more than once a month, but by the time we would mate them most of the socks had packed their bags and moved to the neighbors house never to be seen or heard from again. Tragic if you ask me. When I moved out and got married I thought there (or is it they're)  had to be a better way. That's when I decided I would never have baskets in my house unless it was to hold dirty laundry and never store/transport unfolded laundry to another room. I am CONVINCED those socks make a run for it when you take them out of the dryer and into the basket for transport. Its like a prison break I swear.

Then yesterday as I am unloading the dishwasher for the third time in one day. (Seriously people there are only 3 of us in this house) Remember I cleaned out the fridge of left overs yesterday and had umpteen million lids and containers that I am NOT sticking my hand in to wash...GAROSS! Then another thought crossed my mind. Who looses Tupperware like they loose mated socks? (I am sure thinking about you guys an awful lot) I USED TO! yes. It feels so much better to admit it. My husbands boss made a comment to him that they go through 7 large sets of Tupperware a year.. OMG. SEVEN!? No way. His wife works as many hours as he does so I know she doesn't cook! Are they being eaten? They aren't lunch people.

So I have a confession to make. I don't loose socks any more. If I have an unmated sock its because it had a hole in it and I throw the other one away. No more waiting. "Ain't nobody got time for that." (did you click on that link?? Did ya? Well if you didn't its totally worth the laugh. Trust) I do Tupperware the same way. It gets a lid AS SOON AS it comes out of the dishwasher. Period. This eliminates prison breaks.

Hope this helped.

Go mate your socks and your Tupperware containers.
