The Never Ending Laundry Saga

So, I did three loads of laundry today. That's a lot I know, but I hate doing laundry. I put it off as much as possible, and this can pose a problem since Nick is a commercial fisherman (i.e. his clothes smell like fish). Once I was done today, I realized something.

Nick has been hijacking his own wardrobe!

He now has significantly more "fish" clothes than regular clothes. Which means that some of the clothes that we bought recently for him have been worn (and ruined) on the boat. If Nick was a normal sized man, I would say that this would be no big deal. But, he is 6'3" power lifter that weighs around 300lbs, so finding clothes that fit him is not easy. He has now turned two new pairs of jeans that he was maaaaaaaybe able to wear once into fish pants.

So, since his real clothes are dwindling, we are so setting up a new system. From now on, we will have a "fish only" hamper. Here's hoping that we can keep the fishy clothes away from the good clothes without any crossovers!


  1. I love that you are gonna have a "fish hamper" :):):) HAAA!!
    No "Big and Talls" on the cape???

    Good Luck with all things WEDDING!! :)

  2. I'm the same way about laundry! HATE HATE HATE it. Well, not so much the throwing it in the machine, but the folding it. I'll put it off and put it off and put it off...then I'll DO the wash and leave it sitting in a basket and just pick pieces out as I need them.


    And Steve has been doing almost the same thing with his clothes--hijacking clothes that are a year or less old and using them in the yard. SO frustrating when I see a polo on him that I LOVE...and it's torn or stained because he wore it to do work in our crawlspace. Men ::rolls eyes::
