So, we didn't find a place to live in Virginia over the weekend, but I'm not going to focus on this, I'm going to focus on all we did accomplish over the weekend.
-Jed bought a new laptop for him for grad school.
-Baby X's check-up with his cardiologist went well, he doesn't need another check-up for about a year.
-We left our kids for the longest time we've ever left them (Saturday morning to Tuesday late afternoon). *
-We took the Metro into DC (something I'm hoping to do a lot with the kids) and just walked around, it was like we were already regulars and not huge packs of family reunion tourists in matching shirts and rented bikes.
-We got a good idea of the neighborhoods in the different cities in Virginia where we could end up living.
-We ate a delicious dinner at Maggiano's and got to hang out with Jed's sister's family.
-We drove over about a billion speed bumps in all of the different townhome neighborhoods we were looking in.
-We saw license plates from 38 states and the District of Columbia just on the DC/Virginia part of our trip.
-I read a book (starting it on the plane there, finishing it on the plane home).
-Jed and I learned how to rock out on Rock Band. I prefer the base. He prefers the drums.
-I was released as Primary President at church. (I knew it was happening while we were on vacation so halfway through Sunday School on Sunday Jed leaned over and said, "It's 1:45 in Kansas right now, you aren't Primary President anymore.")
-I had my first birthday cake to start this year's birthday celebration extravaganza early and it only had 4 candles!! Hoorah! **
*Jed reminded me that when Baby X was about 1 1/2 months old he and I flew to CA and drove to AZ for a wedding and the big kids went to my mother-in-law's for a long weekend.
**I remembered after I wrote this post that I actually started my birthday celebrations last week before I left town with a birthday donut and only 1 candle.)
