nothing to see here.

i’m feeling rather blah today. there’s no real good reason for it, either. i mean, nothing is wrong and nothing in particular put me in this mood, but i’m in it nonetheless. i’m sure it doesn’t help that it’s cold and foggy out either.

i do have a swell new pair of shoes on today, though. they are chocolate brown round toe leather flats with a light orange flower embroidered on the top and lime green ribbon woven around the opening that i slide my foot into. i got them when i was out with my girlfriend on sunday. they remind me of shoes you would wear in india.

hubby and i are meeting after work today to check out some houses. one of his friends is a realtor and found two houses inbetween where hubby and i both work, so we decided to check them out. they seem to be in our price range, which is good, but we’ll see. many times houses that are in our price range still require a lot of work to be done to them and we really don’t want to have to put time and effort into a house right away. we’d like to move in and do smaller projects, like painting, rather than having to remodel anything.

i started reading brave new world by aldoux huxley. i’ve never read it before and one of my girlfriend’s highly recommends it. i’m ready to read something ‘non girlie’ again. something that will make me think.

speaking of things that make me think, hubby and i went to see into the wild on sunday. that movie is amazing. it’s a true story based on the book of the same title by jon krakauer. it is hands down the most amazing movie i have seen in a very long time. it’s based on the true story of this guy who, after graduating college, leaves unannounced on an amazing journey across the country, befriending people along the way and ending up lost in the wilderness of the alaskan brush. hubby had read the book and said the movie followed it exactly. it was produced by sean penn and was just phenomenal. i highly recommend it. i don’t want to say any more about it, lest i give away too much of the goodness. just take my word for it and go see the movie. you won’t regret it.
