So Upset!!!

I'm so upset! So flipping upset! (As opposed to rollin' upset or walkin' upset...)
I washed Anna's clothes last night then put them in the dryer. Unbeknownst to me, Anna had stuck a red crayon in the sock of her WHITE tights. So... now a ton of her clothes have red stains that will not wash out ever! I had to throw away two pairs of tights and then a ton of her clothes have stains. I feel so... FURIOUS. I wanted to cry. We don't exactly have the money right now to run out and buy a new wardrobe for her. I'm so annoyed. I'm annoyed at myself for not checking her clothes properly. What was I thinking??? *argh*

Maybe going Christmas shopping will cheer me up? I hope so. I'm so mad right now. I try so hard to keep Anna's clothes stain free (I'm a little psycho about stains... I grew up with stains on everything!) So I'm really just... really, really MAD. Of course, I'm not mad at Anna. I'm mad at myself. Oh! *grits teeth* >.<

Rats! I'm sure every mother goes through this at some point. The good news: all those great day-after-Christmas sales! Cheer up! God provides. :)

Ugh. I know how you feel. I hate stains and am very anal about my boys clothes.

Once I washed something red and it somehow stayed in the washer. For months I would pull clothes out that had mysterious red on them....even with nothing red in the wash. I ran and ran the washer trying to clean it out and scrubbed it all out, but nothing ever worked. Only getting a new machine worked. It was so strange.

Have you tried Carbona? I never have, but I've heard it works well. They have one for crayon stains.

OH sorry to hear about your upsetting day but believe me you will find more things that went thu the washing Machine or dryer!

Here is a link to the Carbona:

I've seen it at the grocery store before.
