My Clumsy Self and I... Laundry Soap Pods Fail!

Happy Hump Day Everyboy!

So, my goal yesterday and today during the day has been to get caught up on laundry after a super busy weekend where I completely ignored the laundry!  (In my house that means the always present mountain of laundry has grown ALARMINGLY HIGH!) I was admittedly in a hurry starting the next load in the washer when the clumsies attacked!

Ok... so I am always looking to save money, but lately if it makes things run smoother and quicker I have been willing to pay a little more. So, I decided to get these cool laundry pods instead of making my own laundry soap (like I have been doing for about a year now).  I've been using them for about a week and loving that it's a simple grab and toss into the washer. It's great unless you have these darn clumsy genes that have been lovingly passed onto you!  (Love you Mamma!)  

So, I reached up to grab a pod out of the container to toss into the washer and knocked the whole bucket over... pouring about 10 pods into the washer!  Yikes!  I reached in and started fishing out little slippery pods... slippery as they had started to dissolve instantly when in contact with water!  I got about 5 out when the ones in my hand started to leak!  All the time visions of soap pouring out of my washer all over the place if I don't get these out of here... surely that is way to much soap!  So, I got all but two out... plus a little leaking between my fingers.  I dashed to the sink to dispose of the rest of them as there was no saving them now... they were a congealed leaking blob in my hand at this point.  

I washed the blob off of my hand and started adding clothes.  So far no bubbles are pouring out of the washer so hopefully I escaped that nightmare with this clumsy experience... this time!

Hopefully your day is less exciting and clumsy as mine!  :-)
