Socks, socks and more socks

Believe it or not, I do have to spend some of my time doing boring, everyday chores like laundry, dishes and vacuuming. I really don't mind doing any of it except for the laundry. Laundry in general stresses me out.

Sorting, washing, folding, hanging, putting away... ugh. I hate it all. But what stresses me the most? Socks. I loathe socks. Digging around in the dryer looking for a sock's mate, when sometimes, no matter how much looking I do, that mate is lost forever. I swear two goes into the dryer! And matching a family of five socks is no easy task. So many socks look the exact same except for the color of stitching or a small marking. So how do I deal with this? I throw all the socks in a basket without matching them, leave the laundry room and run.

I have to admit, in the states I sometimes would go buy new socks just to avoid matching them. But here it isn't so easy. So last night I sat down in front of the TV, with a glass of wine, and tackled this mess.


Two hours and 151 matched pairs later I was finished.

And out of that mess, these little guys never found their mate. (See why they stress me?!)

Hi there,
I found your blog randomly, and I have to admit that I guess it is really interesting to live in Japan.
I laughed at your post. Though, you forgot to mention ironing, which is the worst chore ever :-( Am I the only one on earth to feel that? But I like laundry (of course I understand that you do not when you are in front of 7 mismatched socks..)
Also, do you really have 151 matched pairs? I love socks, but still, I do not have as many as you have...I´m jealous ;-)

I SOOOOOOO agree with you on this one Alexis! I too have five in my family and my husband just keeps buying more and more socks, which means more and more to match and not find mates for. So frustrating! I usually run from that task as well. Good job tackling it but remember it'll be that same way three weeks from now! :o)
