I am sick of the "where are your mittens?!" question I keep asking, and it's only January (cry? yes). The best part is that day in and day out I find myself shocked and surprised by a) the lack of matching mittens and b) the amount of freaking dog hair on the ones we do find.

That's it! Mitten organization conquered! In theory anyhow.
Party for organizing - my kind of place!
