Fight the January Blahs!

Although January seems especially long and heinous in Minnesota, there are things to love:

The squeaky crunch of new snow underfoot.

The hurt-your-eyes brightness of the sun on the coldest days.

Kids in hats and mittens.

Crazy people who will go out in this weather to dig for a medallion for the St. Paul Winter Carnival.  I like to watch them from my van’s heated leather seats.

Preschoolers learning about Martin Luther King.  Raisin recognizes his picture.  That is amazing to me — I don’t think I had any idea who he was until the upper grades of elementary school.

February.  It’s not THAT far away.

I've got the world's best kids and husband. Great house, steady job. I'm living the American dream. The trick is to appreciate it. I'm working on that part.
