Time to Change

See what happens when I have too much time on my hands? 

Yeah, I've been bored with the look of this site for some time now, and I also felt like there was too much wasted space.  What really bucked me were the artificially wide margins, so I started farting around with the software and stumbled onto some new and easy-to-use templates, and well, I like the look of this one.  So here we are.  I don't know how the archives look or how well it's gonna work, so I may just change it up again.  It's a work in progress, and who knows just how progressive I may end up feeling before all is said and done.

I think the source of today's boredom is the fact that it's been raining all day, and even though I'm pretty much confined to the house anyways, today was one of those days where it just feels like an indoor recess day.  Although it's hard to play Heads Up 7-Up or Duck Duck Goose all by myself...  So I slept in late, which has helped (I'm still hurting from the 'Case of Water Incident' this weekend'), and then I haven't done much but watch TV, read, and play on the computer. 

Last night, Scottie and I went out to a local restaurant, Caesars, for dinner.  Both Amy and he said that they had the best pizza in Nashville, so we had to try it out.  It's not really a pizza place, it's more of a mom-and-pop red sauce joint, kind of a poor cousin to Casa di Amore out in Vegas.  Same menu, although a few bucks cheaper here and there. 

The pizza was pretty good, but it didn't blow my skirt up too much (Grimaldi's has ruined me).  We had a large combo pizza with lots of veggies and a little bit o' meat, and shared a carafe of surprisingly good house Chianti.  I'm not normally a fan of Chianti, but this stuff was very tasty and enjoyable.  I'll definitely be going back--maybe not for pizza so much, but something off of the regular menu paired with some good house wine.

Once we got back home, we were both pretty tired.  I had a sip of Port and two squares of dark chocolate for 'dessert', and we tried to watch the football game, but gave up after just a few minutes and called it an early night.  Although I didn't get to see it live, watching the SportsCenter highlights this morning of Brett Pevre tossing a pick-six to ice the game made me especially happy.

But as far as today goes, I'm just hanging out here at the house being mellow.  It's raining much too hard to go out walking, and I don't have anything resembling proper rain gear anyways.  So unless it clears out fairly soon, my daily walk ain't gonna happen this time.  That's ok though, I think I need the rest.  

BTW, there's a little exciting chatter going on with my email box and Facebook messages today.  We leave for the cruise in just two short weeks, so the natives are getting restless.  I can't wait!
