    Ok with 7 people in the house every day is laundry day. Monday I wash whites. Everyone has 20 pairs of socks and yes I count them every Monday. So today I could not find the 20th pair of DH's socks keeping in mind that he is wearing a pair. I looked under the bed, in his shoes, in the hampers and in living room all around. NO SOCKS anywhere. It was driving me crazy at this point. I was going to have to wash a singel pair of sock and just so you know I would or it would drive me crazy! But I had to find them. So I thought maybe just maybe I miss counted not likely but maybe. So I went back to his drawer and recounted the socks. So then I thought I would dig around the drawer and see if they were buried in the drawer. So I did and I found one. ARRR [​IMG] So I keep digging and oh thank goodness there it is under his pajama pants oh WHEW! [​IMG]

    Well that only took 30 min of my day! So am I or not? [​IMG]

    I just had a dryer breakdown. I was neurotic. I had to carry wet clothes to my moms (AND his mom). The repair guy took a week to get the part. Never again, I'll replace the darn thing

    If all my socks were clean at the same time I'd probably have about 100 pairs. [​IMG]

    Uh, yeah, that is a bit much. Seems a bit over the edge into OCD territory to me...

    I don't have the faintest clue how many socks we have here. All stray socks go in a bag. Eventually the matches for most of them do turn up. Occasionally (rarely) one goes permanently astray. I have 5-6 socks that have been in the stray sock bag for years now. I keep hoping the match will turn up folded inside a blanket somewhere. I "will not" throw them away. [​IMG]

    OH NO OCD! [​IMG]

    I do like the number 20

    20 cups
    20 plates

    I don't think I will keep going. I'll call my therapist right now [​IMG]

    No sock bag here. Every six months old socks go to st. vincent and we get new. I am kinda weird I guess. I have to have the clothes very orginized closets oginized and seperated by long sleeve, short sleeve, pants, jeans, and by color. Every ones closets.[​IMG]

    After a while I will just throw out that single sock or use it for cleaning. I used to save the socks forever trying to match missing pairs.
