Bout of Books Update for Friday and Saturday

Bout of Books is very organized and has a template that we can use to keep track of our goals and reading progress throughout the week. Today, I am just going to post my plans for next week. Next week will be a bit tricky since I will be working both jobs. We are starting school next week. I am hoping that I will get some time to read as well as well as blogging.

So today was not that bad. I slowed down with the reading. I got about 2.5 hours done today. I read 30 minutes before work and two hours once I got home. I have only read about 100 pages. I am still happy with what reading I was able to accomplish. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to catch up.

Friday – Let me be honest. I got about two hours of reading done. I did not finish a book, but I did enjoy what I was reading.

Saturday – I got zero reading done. I went to a picnic in the morning, and I had tons of fun. However on my drive back home I almost got into a car accident. When I said almost, I mean almost, I am lucky. The other person in the car claimed that we were about a foot away from the other car. To give you the story. I was driving down Highway 80, in the middle lane, and we were passing the intersection where 80 and 5 merge. There was a black car, and they decided that they needed to merge into my lane, as a precaution I decided to slow down and give that person some room, they merged really weird, and little sharper that I expected. At the same time, there was a white van/truck passing me and they hit the black car. As a result, the black car swerved and ended up being perpendicular to the road and I slammed on my breaks. I can tell you that my thought process as was please do not let me hit the car. I was terrified and almost ended up in a panic attack. It took me the rest of the day to calm down. I did not want to go to a world where people would be fighting or stressing out on anything. I ended up watching funny humorous youtube videos once I got home. I also spent some time trying to make a blog post, but that did not happen.
