Just heard that my district will have classroom and live-recording learning. I’m thankful because I now can feed my family, my newborn and a recent-sponsored wife! I’m scared because I’m almost 50 and I’m afraid I might catch the virus and die leaving behind my 1 month baby and a wife who is not legal in the state yet! The USCIS or Trump’s dept. thinks she’s not good enough to be in the US!! We applied for green card and SS card since August 2019!

Her views and the man who nominated her aside, I am very impressed by ACB’s accomplishments as an American, woman, mother, and judge!

I think I coming down with memory loss. I don’t recall what we did to celebrate our milestone like birthdays, Mother’s Day, wedding anniversary or promotion post baby. I do recall every celebration we had for the baby, but it’s almost like I either don’t remember anything or have only few memories. We are also in a bubble but how is it that I have forgotten what we are for a recent promotion or what we did for our anniversary. Have an annual check up scheduled, but this is embarrassing.
