Gnorman the Gnome

by Melanie

We’re pleased to introduce the newest member of our family! Meet Gnorman the Gnome!
He’s a laundry gnome, a close cousin of the garden gnome. Gnorman does all our laundry for us. He’s a great help around the house. The only problem is that he’s a little bit of a naughty gnome and he always loses our socks…

Does anyone have any advice for how to train a laundry gnome? Reuben is already claiming that Gnorman is moving things around the house- like his toothbrush. Thats gotta change.

  • Hmm… I think I need one of those. I'd rather lose socks and my toothbrush than do all the laundry any day!

  • Lani

    Great name! Does he do housecleaning too? Or just laundry & mischief? 😉

  • Gnorman does only laundry and mischief… his favorite game is to hide our most often used items when we are not looking (keys, wallets, phones, TV remotes, scissors)..

    All Gnorman needs is a stocking cap for laundry days and a night cap for nights. With those you will find your socks will be fine.

  • Ah shucks! I thought you were talking about the newest member like the Rane’s are having a new member. You ought to get one of those OR I can just lend you one of our 5 Gnomes. If you choose the right one, you can put him in your garden and he’ll water it for you!
    Really. No, really.

  • Gnorbert, thanks for the tip!

  • Lisa, we call those Trolls around the Collins household.

  • What a fantastic addition to the Collins family! I bet he'll even iron your underwear if you let him.

  • I have heard from a most reliable source that Gnomes, especially the laundry type, respond well to bribes and blackmail. The lawn gnomes might be able to dig up some dirt on him. His greed will be the ticket to his loyalty.

  • What you need is a lady gnome. Ladies have often been employed to keep gentlemen under control. Trust me. This will work.

    HEY MELANIE- MY GRADUATION DAY REALLY SUCKED. BUT I'M IN THERAPY FOR POST TRAUMATIC STRESS, AND THEY SAID I SHOULD BE FINE. THAT SINGLES WARD CONTRIBUTED. I WAS PRETTY HURT IN THERE. AND THE COUNSELOR HAS GIVEN ME SOME INTERESTING FEEDBACK AND COMMUNITY. SOME CONNECTED TO YOU, AND I FOUND YOUR BLOG TO BE INTERESTING. I HOPE REUBEN IS DOING WELL. YOU GUYS ARE A CUTE COUPLE. MY PAIN LEVEL WAS PRETTY HIGH. I HAD A PRETTY ROUGH SCHEDULE. I'M REALLY HAPPY IN MY RELATIONSHIP. HE'S A GREAT GUY.

    I'M GLAD I AM FEELING BETTER. I CAN START RUNNING AND BIKING AND LOVE YOGA AND PILATES. AND I GOT A LETTER BACK FROM PRES. MONSON ON HOW TO HANDLE THE INJURY. HE GAVE ME GOOD COUNSEL. I HOPE THE LAUNDRY ISN'T TOO MUCH.
