The year 2020 certainly made me a believer in Sir Isaac Newton’s Law of Inertia – “If a body is at rest or moving at a constant speed in a straight line, it will remain at rest or keep moving in a straight line at constant speed unless it is acted upon by a force.” In other words, if a body is at rest in a recliner, it will remain in that recliner unless catapulted out of it by someone or for some reason!

We all know it’ll be one or the other - a boy or a girl. Just as long as it’s healthy, right? Not having any first-hand experience in this area, I would qualify as a disinterested third party.

I love this time of year! It is the final push during the last grading period and the last two months of school to take us to graduation, end of year celebrations, and award assemblies to highlight the accomplishments from this past year.

Though out of character for a Saturday, I laid down for a nap this past weekend and woke about an hour later to delicate rays of sun breaking through the clouds and my curtains. It was in this twilight sleep state wanting to be still and not move when I had a flashback.
