Ahhhh, home at last, with a glass of wine and grateful to still be alive. We were coming home from band rehearsal (a bad final rehearsal means a great show, right?) when a semi tried to run us off the road. Now M is an excellent driver. As we're merging onto the freeway the semi sped up. There's a retaining wall on the right side of the car and the trailer of the truck coming at the left. Luckily no damage to either us or the car, just our nerves but it was really scary.

We're both still unemployed. I've discovered that I don't have the experience to do anything but teach, so out go the resumes and we'll see what happens. M is sending out at least five a day. The UC Berkeley one didn't pan out, but there are other positions that she is qualified for, so we're hopeful.

Alameda Civic Light Opera is no more. It's really very sad. We've performed with this company for ten years. On the upside though, we're pit singing for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in Livermore. That's going to be fun. Then we'll decide where to audition next.

Memorial Day was great fun. We had a houseful of people for a barbecue. Our son had some of his friends over and we had some friends over. Everyone played Rock Band, I suck at it unless I'm singing a song I know. The kids had great fun watching the older adults playing. You would have thought we were ready for a road tour the way we cheered when we got a high score.

Well, I have MFU stories to read and I really need to try to do some writing. After I look and see which schools are hiring for next year. I do know that one of the high schools I interviewed for a couple of years ago. They're looking for a new biology teacher. Wish us luck.
