Help! Mom's Stuck on Spin Cycle

31 Days to Laugh Your Way through Motherhood

At last, Cheryl Moeller’s mini-book answers the proverbial question, “Where is my other sock?” Cheryl, after 30 years, has emerged from the laundry room to tell her story — such as the time Metamucil® tablets left in a pants pocket became the size of basketballs after 30 minutes in the washing machine. Her over-the-laundry-pile humor will help you laugh your way through motherhood — 31 days in a row.

She’ll also give you Ten Ways to Know It’s Going to Be a Long Labor and Delivery, Ten Things You Can Learn from Your Cat, and Ten Reasons Why a Mom Should Be President.

So when your laundry gets taller than you are, turn over a basket, sit down, and read a page of, “Help! Mom’s Stuck on Spin Cycle.” Warning: You may emerge from the laundry room with permanent press wrinkles — from laughing.

Here's an excerpt of Help! Mom's Stuck on Spin Cycle:
