Weekend Update - The Rocket Man & The Piano Man

Let's see. On Friday, Little Miss got into my make up. She would put on the blush. I'd put lip gloss on her, and she remained perfectly still during the application. Then, I took away the make up when she kept digging the powder out with her fingers. So, we had another royal tantrum. I ate quickly while Husband manned the tantrum-y baby and then he ate while I deposited tantrum-y baby in bed. No cleaning got done that night.

That said, Saturday, we woke up and cleaned like mad people (well, bathrooms and dusted the main room, but the bedroom is still cluttered and messy). Brother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law came over in the afternoon to go over the routine before watching Little Miss all night. She put on an act and cried when we left, but I didn't hear her after we shut the door so I think she was acting to make us feel bad for leaving us. The In-Laws, Husband and I went to see
Elton John and Billy Joel in concert. It was super. I've never seen Elton John or the two of them together so it was a great treat. We also had a fantastic dinner at Old Ebbitt Grill beforehand.

On Sunday, Husband woke up and fed Little Miss breakfast and then went to play golf. In the mid-afternoon, Little Miss and I went to meet Sister for lunch. We ate at
Baja Fresh where Little Miss ate almost all the chicken out of my tacos. Then, we went grocery shopping and to Parents' house. There, we met Parents, Nephew and my parents' former exchange student and her brother. I also went to pick up Husband at the Metro. I also put Little Miss and Nephew's handprints on Dad's cast. We took a brief dip in the pool and then went to the house for dinner. Little Miss ate really well and then, because it was late, curled up on the sofa and tried to go to sleep. We took that as our cue to leave. She fell asleep before we turned off my parents' road.

So, good and busy weekend. We'll be going into the city later this week so I'll try to do an update during the week as well as after next weekend. Busy week of visiting friends in the city while they work, booksignings, and a movie.

I'm jealous--I would love to see Elton John and Billy Joel, separately or together.

Also, was the visiting exchange student the one I met, from Spain? Or were there more after her?

Nope, my parents had a couple of summer exchange students from Korea after they moved to Virginia. Maria was the one from Spain in high school. They lost touch with her.
