The Eighth Wonder of the World & Random Musings

The Magic Sock Trick: The Eight Wonder of the World! :)
It is an amazing trick and i baffle myself every time i do it. I put my dirty laundry in the washer and dryer and somehow come out with completely mismatching socks every Single time. Below were the rogue socks from my last load of laundry. I mean i don't remember only taking off one sock at the end of the day and i don't find extra single socks lying around... So...how in the world did this combination come out of the dryer? I think this 8th wonder of the world is too great a task to try and tackle or explain, but just something that each household has to accept as a fact of life.
Can 5 Pounds Really Make that Much of a Difference?!?
I don't know why, but i have this five pounds that has always haunted me. During college i usually fluctuated between 195-200lbs. Now it is 200-205, but that five pounds is the difference between looking at myself in the mirror and seeing a pooch in my belly or not. Not only that, but the main determinate is usually not how much i exercise but how much i eat. That is sad days when you like to eat! No real deep meaning to this thought, just letting you into one of my many everyday battles. it is rough life, i KNOW!!! :)

Funny quote i read yesterday:
“I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.”

Um...no promises but this has been my solution to the magic sock trick. When you take the socks off, fold them together...then when you put them in the washer unfold them...that way you know that both go in and both have to come out and into the dryer. With a little luck both will come out:) Happy washing.
