Friday I was driving in to work and saw one of the worst car accidents I've ever witnessed; seeing a vehicle go airborne made me just want to turn around and go home. Last night I found out from my sister that the person in that vehicle was my niece's softball coach. I was so relieved to find out that she walked away with only bruises. Once again a reminder of how important it is to wear your seat belt.
I'm really liking my job right now but it has been a stressful week with a new person to be trained and computer problems. So it was nice to get out Friday night to the comedy club and laugh. The headliner was Tom Wilson, who played "Biff" in the "Back To The Future" movies. He got that subject out of the way right off the bat with this song:
My favorite part of his routine was the part about shopping at Costco. I was laughing so hard I began to worry that my asthma was going to kick in.
Last night Miss H and I joined my sister and her family at my niece's Senior Prom for the coronation since she was a member of the court. She looked so beautiful and happy and I was thrilled to be able to see her. You may have heard about the shooting that happened at her school in January when a student who had been expelled came back to the building a killed an assistant principal and wounded the principal. It was good to see all of the kids having such a great time. Their prom was held in a convention center that is attached to our big entertainment venue. Uncle Kracker was opening for Kenny Chesney there last night and one of the girls from the high school talked to him about what had happened at their school. He and some of his band mates made a surprise appearance at the prom and played a few songs. What a neat thing for these kids who have been through so much!
On the agenda today: spring cleaning and taxes. I'd like to spend the afternoon reading but the bug to clean and lighten things up has really bitten me this weekend. I've got a couple of mysteries I'm reading right now that I'll finish and post about this week to wrap up Mystery March. Then I'm on to reading Omaha authors for April. Really looking forward to those books!
What are you reading this week?
