Holy Toledo!

Yes, it's been awhile. That's for sure. Unfortunately teaching and coaching freshman volleyball has kept me really-really busy!!! Thankfully, the coaching part of my job is over for a few months until softball season starts up in February (I think). Anyway, I must say that so far I really like my job. It has been pretty stressful, and there are many times I thought I wouldn't make it through the day, but here I am, still going strong after 9 weeks! ;-) The grading of 154 essays is the hardest part of everything, but I hear it gets easier as time goes along, when I'm not so involved in every detail of each student's paper. But who knows?

Okay, so the real reason why I felt compelled to update today was because I just witnessed a crazy accident on the freeway when I was on my way home from the gym, and I wound up about 20 feet from being part of the accident! Basically, I was driving along in the right lane, going about 65 m.p.h., and a silver sports car came flying up and passed me, and then passed the car ahead of me, and was weaving in and out of traffic at around 90 m.p.h., when suddenly I saw brake lights ahead of me and a green car spinning out of control, and then flying off to the right side of the road up the hill of the freeway! The car ahead of me had to slam on his brakes and swerve off to the left and I had to slam on my brakes and swerve to the right to avoid hitting him. I swear to God, my heart was beating a million miles a minute, and I got shaky and sweaty, and just completely freaked out! I drove up about 100 feet and then pulled over to call 911. I looked in my rear-view mirror and saw that at least 2 other cars had pulled over to help the guy in the green car. I reported the accident, but then continuted to drive home in a daze. I would've helped, but with my track record concerning blood I didn't think I'd do anyone any good. So, that's my story. . .

I'm going to shower now, grade tons of papers, and then maybe go to Ikea, or to my classroom. We'll see. I feel safer just staying home. =/ Later on tonight though I'm looking forward to seeing a movie. It's been a month since I've even done that, and, well, that's just flat-out pathetic.
Oh, I did go to Vegas twice since I last posted, and that was a lot of fun! And I also went to San Diego with Kimberly, and that was so awesome. I even taught her how to boogie-board!

Alllllrightythen, I'm off like a prom dress.
