This is almost an announcement-for some odd reason, I almost feel proud to share this with the world!

Do you all remember the fascinating facts I shared about myself?  One being that I have a sock collection--under my pillow?

Well, before I go any further, I just want to say for the record that my house is usually only slightly messy.  I live with 4 other people, three of those being my children-of which 2 are sometimes like mini-tornados.  So with that many of us, and coming out of heavy coats and boots season, you'll see a little bit of messiness that can be cleaned up within a matter of minutes.  Our home is lived in. 

I needed to say all of that so that you won't think I'm just a slob when I make my great announcement!  I run the dishwasher daily, have tons of clean clothes, and run the vaccuum and dust every week.  So anyway, again, that is so you don't get the wrong impression when I tell you what I found!
Look!  Here's even a picture in my diningroom to prove it to ya!  Like my quilt?  My realtor gave this lovely, homemade quilt from California to us for our "new" home!   
Can you see my kitty next to the green plant on the floor?  She and her sister are the reason the green plant looks the way it does.  Fortunately, it is a fake plant-I reshape it occasionally.
And in case anyone wants to know, my walls are Dried Fava by Kilz.  :)

So anyway!  Finally!  The announcement!!!

I was cleaning my room yesterday, and knew that some of my sock collection had fallen between the headboard and mattress, onto the floor below.  I got Dan's handy grabbing stick(earned from his back or neck surgery to reach things), and used it to pull out all the socks I could reach.  Some tried to crawl away because I had to reach way over on Dan's side of the bed floor to get them.  The obviously weren't quick enough. 

So I decided to count them.  Guess how many I found?

Did you guess 6?

Or 9?

Maybe even 14?


I found 23-that's TWENTY THREE- socks on the floor under the bed!!!

There was another pair-one at the foot of my mattress, and one of the floor down by the foot of the mattress-but I didn't count those.

Can you all believe it?  It did seem I was running out of socks!  And actually, I'm no respector of socks-I wear Dan's and Elissa's too, when I can't find mine.

So anyway!  If you weren't fascinated by my sock collection the first time I blogged about it, you ought to be now!  = P
