So here I am sewing on the buttons to my winter coat because I went to a play tonight with only one button to close it. How sad is that? I also noticed that I still have my dry cleaning tag from last year that I never took off. Hey, at least I had it laundered before I put it away!
I still have to locate all the snow boots and prepare myself for all the whining and complaining tomorrow morning when the kids say they don't fit. I have located all the hats and mittens and they have dress coats for Mass. It's interesting how you have so many of everything here in the frigid North Woods. There are coats for rain, coats for crisp fall weather, winter dress coats for Mass and going to the symphony or a show, ski jackets for sledding and skiing of course, dress mittens, choppers for shoveling, gloves for driving, dress boots, snow boots, Sorels in case you attend an ice race, traction clogs for shoveling, dress hats, stocking caps, berets, and hats with earflaps. I think that's why we have a larger home...not for the people but for the stuff. I've always argued it should be the other way around!
Here's to Winter!
