Where Is My Brain??

I started the dryer (clothes, of course. it would be silly to think it was a hair dryer - that would imply I have time for that) the other day and as I was heading up the stairs I heard the "whump, whump" that happens when a shoe gets in there or the load is unbalanced.


Stop the dryer, rummage around the clothes for a bit to see what could be making the noise, pray the dryer is not breaking.

Nothing is found, so I turn the thing back on and walk away.

Whump. Whump.

Whatever. I ignore it.

As I unloaded the dryer, I discovered pieces of this:

which was absolutely full when I must have somewhat intentionally tossed it in there. It was a load of the kids' clothes, which I meticulously scan for stains before I put them in the wash. The only thing I can think of is that I sprayed an item and then tossed both in. The clothes ended up all stiff and smell like Shout in a nauseating way.

haha! i only laugh, because i have been there :)

thanks for the comment on my no sleeping post. i have been thinking that it probably has a lot to do with being stuck in the house and not burning off nearly as much energy as they are used to. so i have been trying to keep them busy!

I'm so glad other people do things like this. Last week I had to throw an almost full large yogurt container out because I put it in the cabinet and the peanut butter in the fridge.
