Carbon Copy

In order to take advantage of Blogger's New Blog List feature, I was forced to upgrade my blog. Which means I need to actually take some time to fiddle around to make it pretty and my own again. I'm sure I'll have fun with it, but it will not be happening tonight. So for now my blog is just like each and every other minima blog out there. Blah!

I need sleep. I was a on edge all day and I'm sure a lack of sleep had something to do with it. Even a nap didn't help. However, I did manage to kick back this evening.

I actually got my husband to go out to eat dinner. No fussing, no whining, no pleading, no pouting or negotiating. At 5:25 I look at the clock and said "I feel like s***. We're going to Plucker's for dinner. Go get something on"

This is very significant because the last time Lyn and I ate out together it was at a sub shop over a year ago without Liam. The last time we ate out with Liam he was 3 months old and slept through the whole thing. This is a huge step. Before Liam was born we are out regularly, usually at some fairly nice restaurants. I can't say Plucker's is nice, it's a wing joint, but it's inexpensive, has a busy, kid friendly atmosphere and it's near by. This has been a huge anxiety issue for Lyn. He just hasn't been willing to go out to eat, there is always an excuse. He works up the worse case scenario in his head. However, tonight he didn't. He actually said that it was a good idea, that he enjoyed himself, and that he would be willing to go someplace family friendly again. Next time I'm going to try for a place that has vegetables on their menu.

And yes, I just posted 2 times in one day. Now that hasn't happen in quite some time.

Yeah, I guess fried pickles don't count as veggies :)

Glad you guys went out. We love to shake it up a little, too.

Woohoo! Let me know if you want to do a trial lunch someplace that has veggies!
