Can you believe it? I feel like my life is speeding up and perhaps it is. After all, a year is an eternity for a toddler. Looking at a year as half of your life is huge. 1/58th of it, not so much. The older we get, the faster time flows. It's Einstein's theory of Relativity.

So what are you going to do to make this year better than the last one? We always resolve to lose weight or get healthy, don't we? I wonder how many people I've lost and gained in my lifetime. That means, looking at weight loss and comparing it to the poundage of a human. I've certainly lost and gained many chihuahuas in 2019 alone.

How about the kindness resolution? That's a good one. It's often difficult to ignore stupid comments on Facebook, but I'm trying. I think I'll resolve to spend less time on FB to begin with. It certainly is a time suck that steals from my business. As a self employed person, the more I work the more I make. So, that's it. Time limits on Facebook.

As a former teacher, I know that teachers need all the time they can get to work on lesson plans, evaluations, grading papers, and everything else that goes along with the thankless job. So here you go! Resolve to spend time wisely.

Finally, here is a favorite song from a favorite scene from a favorite movie, 'It's a Wonderful Life.'

Also, I have two new products that I've listed within the last week.

Shadow or Spring

Groundhog Day is right around the corner and legend asks, "Will he see his shadow?" If the groundhog sees his shadow, he gets scared and runs back into his hole in the ground, giving us six more weeks of winter. I don't believe in groundhog forecasts, but it's a fun media stunt. . . well maybe not so fun for the poor scared creature that is surrounded by the camera crews.

This week's musical challenge is to find songs with "shadow" in them. An obvious one, from my childhood, comes to my mind. I'm sure others in our group will think of this one, too, but here goes Cat Stevens with "Moon Shadow."

In looking for "Moon Shadow," I had a choice on what to post. I could post a blurry tape, words on a moon, Spanish subtitles blocking the picture, or the whole dang concert with Moon Shadow being the first song. I chose the whole dang concert but only listened to the first song. Hopefully Cat Stevens doesn't do anything horrific later on, but I wouldn't know.

Whether the groundhog sees his shadow or not, spring will still get here, so I'd like to show you my newest spring product. Spring Primary Activities is now available for sale at Catch My Products!
