Weekend Update: Parental Visit Edition
ANYWAY, my parents visited this weekend. They arrived Thursday late afternoon. That evening, we just blobbed around and ate and talked.
On Friday, I had a hair appointment. While I was away, I tasked my parents with cleaning my place and putting away my Halloween decorations.
When I got home, we piled into the car and I drove (eek!) to the Kennedy Center. We had a tour of the building and, then, had dinner at the KC Cafe. After dinner, we attended a performance of "Warhorse."
It was pretty amazing. BUT, I would like to say that the people who were all like, "The horses are PUPPETS! and, after awhile, you don't even notice the puppeteers" are either totally craycray or possibly mentally challenged. Every time the horses appeared on stage, I was always like, "who is that character who is always leading the horse around."
Then, I would remember it was the puppeteer in charge of head movement. I found it a little distracting.
BUT, still, the play was very good. And, the parents enjoyed it. Hurrah!
Then, I drove (eek!) home. Through Rock Creek Park! In the dark! SCARY! It was like driving through Deliverance.
On Saturday, we went to Target. The parents bought me a humidifier. Yay? They seem to think that will help with my "Winter Cough." We'll see ... At least my sweaters shouldn't be so staticky now.
For dinner, we ate at El Golfo. Yum! Then, we came back and watched some of Downton Abbey Season 2.
The parents left this morning. And, I went for an 11 mile run. Then, I went to the likker store and the Whole Foods and had a boozy lunch at Adega. YAY!
Then, I had a nap.
Tonight, Tomokito and I are having cocktails here. And, in the morning, I have a phone interview for what could be a very interesting (and much higher salaried) job. Send good vibes around 9AM.
After the interview, I'll need to grocery shop and iron and maybe do some cooking for the week. And, then, there will be pottery class ... which kicks off a very busy week. More on that later, I'm sure.
Have a great night! And enjoy your day off tomorrow (if you have a day off tomorrow).
