On the way to the zoo I had an 'ah-ha moment,' if you will. The cold weather isn't really the problem since we have plenty of gear to keep us warm and the Bean doesn't seem to mind going out in the cold. The problem is my attitude about the cold! If I'm going to survive the winter in MN I am going to need a serious AA (attitude adjustment), as my 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Velin, would say. Sure, I got used to the milder winters of The Lou and this is a rude awakening, but we never let the cold weather stop us when we lived here before. I'm digging out my long underwear, putting on my wool socks, and we are going to make the most of our short winter days! Yesterday at the zoo was a good start...
