For the first 10 months or so of Josh and Alli's life I was very frustrated with the laundry; not because there was sooooo much but because I kept buying cute little socks and then loosing them every time I did a load. After several months I told a friend who suggested I buy one of those mesh bags meant for your delicates, I did and my problem was solved. I never looked back or gave a second thought to the dozen or so socks that went AWOL.
Today, my washer was acting up and when I looked in the owner's manual the error code the machine was giving meant that there was something blocking it from draining. I tried all the troubleshooting steps in the manual with no success. Then I noticed that the rubber seal around the opening looked kind of out of place, a little bumpy (I have a front loader and there is a large rubber seal that seals the door when running so no water runs out). I pulled back the seal to try and straighten it and low and behold....there they were....I found 18 (yes, you heard me 18) tiny little socks!!!!
