It felt like we did nothing but fill, carry and empty boxes..., but alongside of all the chaos, we did do a lot. Here's a recap.
|First thing my mom did when she arrived... was a Wishing Tree (=art project in case you didn't immediately get it...) in the backyard of the old house. It's all there: our hopes and wishes for the years to come.|
While I was moving, dealing with my three movers and handymen from El Salvador AND running errands (lawyer, landlord, bank, pharmacy), signing contracts and picking up keys and cleaning up messes here and there AND went to two work interviews, a mammogram, a teeth-whitening AND took Maia to get a vaccin at her doctor's... and also got rid of some head lice in my kids' heads..., I of course wasn't always exactly in my best mood ever... eh. BUT my mom kept her calm as usual and... made a heap of pancakes :D (My kids love them with jam. I eat them with Nutella...)
Well, I wasn't a lousy daughter either as I took her to see Lincoln (the movie) in Georgetown and she got to see this year's Nutcracker with Maia's ballet class at the Warner Theatre in DC. We also went to a Nail Salon and ate in several nice restaurants: Meze, Paolo's, Radius, Haydees, Five Guys and had a lot of coffee and cakes at Starbucks. We also went to Ikea and the Container Store - twice.
|In Radius - a Mt Pleasant pizzeria - the pizzas are named after our local streets: Irving, Kenyon, Kilbourne....|
|Christmasy treats from Georgetown Cupcake.|
|We also went to see the huuuuge Christmas tree from Colorado at the Capitol Hill one night.|
