Ready, Set, Move! ~ Part 5

We are here!  We have been back in the DC area for almost a week already and a lot has happened.  We have phones, I have a brand new red Ford Escape and we may have chosen our new house already.  We will have to wait till August to move in if all goes well since the house will have to be built so we will stay with my in-law’s.

Of course you can understand that I haven’t done a lick of reading since we landed with all the things going on.  Hopefully next week with Hubby starting his new gig I will find the time to get back to reading.  I have a few books waiting to be read for review as well. 

I am looking forward to being a tourist in my home town this summer.  With so many great things to do around here it will be a busy summer which will be a good thing.  What have you been up to?  Any big plans for the upcoming Memorial Weekend?  We hope to catch a movie or two.  Yesterday we saw Star Trek and damn was it good.  Beautiful cinematography as well as a gorgeous cast.  The story was clever, grasping and interesting.  Do you have a movie to recommend?

  1. So glad you got there okay!

    I saw Angels and Demons. It was good. A bit far fetched but a good flick.
    Good luck with the house!

    1. Thanks Ti!! We have a date with my folks to see Angels and Demons in a couple of weeks. My dad is a physicist so the particle excelorator part of the story is of immense interest.

  2. Congrats on the new car! Super cute. What’s up to bat on your reading list?

    I haven’t been to the theatre to see a movie in ages but we did just Netflix Forgetting Sarah Marshall and I would HIGHLY recommend it! Just maybe not watching it with your in-laws 😉

    1. I LOVE Forgetting Sarah Marshall!!! So funny!

      I was reading Three Cups of Tea and plan on getting back to it sometime soon. It’s really good but I might need a break. A gripping work of fiction might do the trick. I have a few choices on my Kindle already waiting for me. Boneman’s Daughters, The Book Thief, Handle With Care, Olive Kitteridge and The School of Essential Ingredients come to mind.

      What are you reading now? Anything worth while?

  3. i’m prob the last book blogger to read this: but I just borrowed Neil Gaiman’s YA book The Graveyard Book from the library, while I was in that section I was distracted by all the nostalgic titles from my childhood and also picked up Caddie Woodlawn and A Wrinkle in Time

  4. welcome home! cute car–good luck with the house. i saw star trek last week–it was such fun. i saw ghosts of girlfriends past at the local ‘discount’ theater last night…um, not so good. hee hee.

    looking forward to food inc. which is coming out in a few weeks.
