Out To Lunch

A big happy birthday to Presidents Washington and Lincoln.  Oh heck, happy birthday to all the presidents and thanks for letting me have the day off.  In a battle between hanging out with Maren all day, heading out to lunch and slumming on the internet or actually cleaning up the front entry way, sorting through more clothes, or really, doing anything useful, the former will always win out.  So yea, I pretty much wasted my day.

Despite having the day off, there was no sleeping in as Shannon and Quinn still had school.  And, no big surprise, Maren was up before the alarm went off.  Last night was the worst in a while.  She actually slept through the night (meaning she fell asleep sometime between 8 and 10 pm and woke up sometime between 2 and 5 am to eat) a few nights last week but last night was a disaster.  She slept on the husband's shoulder for a few hours but when he attempted to put her in the bassinet she woke up and was WIDE AWAKE for easily the next two and a half hours.  Ugh.  She finally fell back to sleep around 12:30 a.m. but had a few episodes of stirring during the night that were loud enough to wake me up.  I'm hoping to move her into the nursery sometime during the next month but right now her sleep just isn't consistent enough and I don't want to deal with not only having her not sleep through the night but deal with her waking Sully up as well. 

I got the call from my doctor's office this morning scheduling the Leep procedure so after getting that out of the way I thought it would be fun to take my mind off things by going out to lunch.  I sorted through my vast array of Groupons and found just the perfect thing - beer and cheese.  How very fitting for Wisconsin.  The husband, Maren and I headed downtown to the Uber Tap Room inside the Wisconsin Cheese Mart.  Our Groupon got us a cheese sampler plate and a beer flight.

I obviously haven't been drinking enough lately because halfway through these beers I was flushed and even a tad dizzy.  Yes, I'm a light weight, at least in the drinking department.
