Sunday Nights

Well all I have to say is that there is toooooooo much good TV on Sunday nights. 

I think Mike and I were playing DVR wars all night long.  This is a sure sign we watch way too much TV. 

So I'll share with you the rundown of our Sunday night DVR list:
(in no particular order)

Keeping Up with the Kardasians
Boardwalk Empire
Desperate Housewives
Brothers and Sisters
The Amazing Race
Eastbound and Down
Undercover Boss

These are all I can think of right now... I think there are a couple more. 

Due to the DVR being at MAXIMUM Capacity, our Sunday night line-up usually becomes a Monday Afternoon/Evening line up... 

Oh...the woes of the Kellermeyer House.

Did I ever tell you about the Battle of the Blizzard?

Our treat to ourselves sometimes is DQ Blizzards.  This has become a more frequent stop since they put the Peanut Buster Parfait Blizzard on the menu.  I don't even know the right name, but if you say that, they know. 

Anyways, I wanted to go get Blizzards a couple of weeks ago and Mike would not go with me.  I don't remember why...maybe he was studying, I don't know.  But he was clearly already eating ice cream...  So since he wouldn't go, I went myself. 

I drove to DQ, ordered my Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard (YUMM), and drove home... the whole time I was talking on the phone and never at any point, did it cross my mind to get him one... for 2 reasons.  1. He woudln't go.
2. He was already eating ice cream at home. 
What would you have done?

So I got home, walked in, and sat down with my blizzard. 

Mike: "Where's mine?" 
Me: "I didn't get you one."
Mike: "No really, where is it?" 
Me: "No really, I didn't get you one"
Mike: "What?!  Where are you hiding it? C'mon, it's not funny."
Me:  "Mike, you didn't want to go with me to get one and you were eating ice cream when I left... I just thought you didn't want one with those 2 things in combination."
Mike:  "That's really mean." 

So I was a meanie for a while because of that...

4 Square

Is anyone reading into this whole 4 Square thing?  I don't even know if it's spelled right... you can tell I'm real into it. 

Mike a few weeks back somehow was introduced to it.  Oh, I remember, it was when we were carpooling.  And he didn't have Howard to listen to so he had to listen to Smiley.  Remember he doesn't particularly like Smiley

One of those days, Smiley was talking about 4 Square and how he had to check in...so naturally Mike became intrigued by this. 

But the funny thing is that he was picking me up and dropping me off at work so he would check in as many places around my work as possible.  He really wanted to become Mayor of something.  I don't know what the big deal is, but that was his goal (for 1 week).  He thought he'd be able to become the Mayor of Starbucks.  Well, was he wrong.  Rajul or someone was already the Mayor and checked in there everyday.  I thought this was funny, he didn't.  I think Rajul worked there too so that didn't help Mike any.  I think one day he walked in and when he picked me up that day he said "That Rajul works there!  He waited on me today!"  But his envy for Rajul was priceless!  Not again, Jerk, What?! It's like 5am!... these were all things I'd hear. 

I swear everywhere we went for like 10 days straight he had to check in or he'd ask me to remind him to check in.  He would add new places to get more points.  He finally became the Mayor of our House!  WOW...really hard, right?! 

Now, I don't think he checks in anywhere.  That was just as quick of an obsession as Farmland on Facebook

I got a call from Mike yesterday morning.  He was out of breath.  I wasn't quite sure why as it was like 8 in the morning. 

So... I asked him "Why are you out of breath?  Are you OK?"

He said, "Yes, I just chased the trash man." 

I just started laughing. 

"I had just gotten out of the shower and I heard the truck coming down the street so I threw on some clothes really quickly and ran to the back of the house, grabbed the trash can, and barely made it.  Guess I got my workout in for the day."

Mike's View

This probably happens 2x a month... 
But never has he called me immediately after it happened so I knew the story right then and there. 

And when I came home yesterday there were 2 garbage bags in the garage that he'd forgotten.

So Mike has been taking this test.  It's like a practice test.  I may have told you about it before. 

Well, his computer has some issues.  It overheats.  We need to get this taken care of, but we don't.  The test is all online.  It's a practice for the big test.  I don't know where he'll do that.  Anyways, it's like almost 3 hours long. 

A few times, he's been taking it and he'll be halfway through and the computer will either turn off or the Internet will disconnect leaving him hanging and having to start the test over again.  That sucks. 

So he asked if he could use my computer.  Of course since I'm a loving and helpful little wifey, I said yes.  I mean, I could have been using it, but my stuff isn't as important.  So he has to take the practice test online, get a passing score, and print it out so that he can take it to the real test. 

Last night, he took the test on my computer, finished, passed, and then closed it out. 

Yep, he forgot to print out the test so he'd have a certificate for the big test.  Oops.   

Don't forget to press print tonight hunny!  ;)  You'll do even better this time!

-- Pillows --

The last few weeks I keep waking up with a stiff neck.  I'm not sure why...

Oh wait, that's right!  Mike keeps stealing my pillow in the middle of the night.  I'm not sure why, but he does.  I wake up and he's holding it like a baby.  Very strange. 

Too much for me.  I guess I'll have to get a back-up pillow, but he might steal that one too.

Would you believe that between Mike and I, we are at the rink everyday of the week? 

Monday - Mike coaches Cathedral Chatard Hockey Club at the Forum at Fishers.

He loves his mini dry erase board!
 Tuesday - I coach at the Arctic Zone.
Wednesday - Mike hockey practice at the Forum at Fishers.
Thursday - Mike hockey practice at The Forum at Fishers.

This is Mike when he was playing at Toledo...had to sneak it in! 
Friday - I coach at Carmel Ice Skadium.

Saturday - I coach at the Arctic Zone, Forum at Fishers, and Carmel Ice Skadium. Mostly with Elite Skating. 


Sunday - I coach at the Forum at Fishers with the Junior Blades Program

Not sure how I feel about this... 
The rinks are getting old and cold. 
Might be too much skating. 

Since I put one of Mike on here, I thought I'd put one of me in my day... 

This is me in one of my shows.  I'm in the dark coat front left.

Anyone who is a true fan will know what TMNT stands for.... 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

This morning when we woke up, we had the news on.  I then turned on Project Runway so that I could watch it from last night.  Mike did not like this...so while I was finishing putting the dishes in the dishwasher and I couldn't see the TV, but Mike had changed it. 

I said, "Are you watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?"  And he said, "How did you know that?!"

I knew by the voices of the turtles!  I started laughing.  My brother and I used to watch this movie ALL THE TIME!!! 

We then watched it through the end.  Ninja, Ninja Rap....Go Ninja Go Ninja Go!  Love it. 

Happy Friday!

Beautiful Day

Sunday was a beautiful day.  I love when you can finally feel Fall is on it's way. 

A little breezy, still warm, but not too hot, and SUNNY!!! 

So, we took our boys for a long walk.  We went through Forrest Park here in Noblesville.  Started on the Square, crossed the white river, and then walked along the railroad tracks a bit.  All in all, it was great!

Almost every Sunday we have eggs.  Not just any eggs, but Mike's cheesy salsa eggs.  They are the best. 

Mike is somewhat particular about what he cooks the eggs in.  He prefers small skillets to the larger ones.  I'm not sure why, because you'd think the bigger the better, right?! 

Well, last Friday we were cleaning and waiting for our friends to stop by.  During that time we were doing the dishes and this happened...

I hope you can notice that there are still eggs stuck to the broken skillet.  Mike was totally devastated!  Poor guy!  I'll have to try to find him a mini skillet just like this for when he passes his test!!!

Now the cheesy salsa eggs (his specialty) will have to be made in a bigger skillet...hope it doesn't effect his work.

One day we were at the mall and I went into Gap so Mike of course went across the hall to Brookstone.  I love Brookstone, but it is one of those stores where everything in there is fun, interesting, and cool, but not really something you'd buy. 

So Mike walks out with a bag.  I thought what the hell did he buy?!?  Last time he bought a mini helicopter that he played with like 1x and it was $30 so I could only imagine what was coming out of this bag when we got home.  He wouldn't tell me until we got home what he had bought.

He runs upstairs and then tells me when I can come up.  I walk into our room and he introduces me to Moshi.  Moshi is an alarm clock.  You talk to her, she talks to you.  I thought Mike had lost his mind. 

After living with our new roommate for about a week, we were trying to set Moshi for the next morning.  You say, Hello Moshi and she responds back.  Then you say Set Alarm.  She responds, Tell me the time you want the alarm to be set.   Then all you have to say is the specific time. 

We said 7:15.  Seven Fifteen.  Moshi responds 6:18.  We start all over again.  Hello Moshi.  Set Alarm.  7:15.  Alarm is set for 8:19.  WTF?!? 

Hello Moshi.  Set alarm.  SEVEN FIFTEEEN!!!!  By now we are screaming...not sure if it will help or hurt the situation.  Alarm is set to 10:15.  Well, we are halfway there! 

We must have done this at least 10x.  We tried to get real close and see if it helped.  We tried to go far away...into another room... and yell at her and see if it helped.  Finally we took a break and tried it one more time a bit later.  Alarm is set for 7:18.  CLOSE ENOUGH!!!  We'll take it. 

Thanks Moshi. 

She has grown on me.  Sometimes I like to use her sleep sounds.  And Mike wakes up to another woman everyday!  Hah.  She's my only other ally in the house...all the rest are boys.

Maroon 5

All I know is that I'd rather be sleeping this morning!  Last night I was invited to go to the Maroon 5 Concert here at the Murat Theater.  It was a GREAT show!  Adam Levine really knows how to play the crowd!  Anyways, went with my friend and left Mike home to study. 
I left my husband at home while he studied.  It's weird to go to a concert without your man!  The guy who sat next to us 1st, T -- the hairdresser, would not shut up at first!  He just kept talking.  Then he finally asked us where we got our hair done so that he could give us our business cards...and then he worked at like Great Clips basically.  NO THANKS T!!! 

Then three college boys came and sat in front of us.  If the guy who sat two rows up from us wasn't enough to block the view these guys were there as reinforcements so that we couldn't see for sure!  However, I think we were watching two of them just as often as the show.  The one was on his phone the entire time -- texting.  And the other was having his own little dance party and doing like Michael Jackson moves that I've never seen in such a small space!  All three of them also knew EVERY word to EVERY song. 

Just thought I'd post a couple of pictures of the boys! The real boys!  Maroon 5! They are so awesome!  So glad I went!  Thanks Jenni!

For all of you hoping for great pictures...get over it!  I forgot my memory card to my camera and my phone was dying the entire night...it finally shut off on me after like 3 songs!  But here's what I got.  I need a new phone with a better camera!  Sorry for the shitty pics!

Good Job, Nice Try

Small tear...no one was entered for the giftcard.  Guess I'll have to treat myself.  :(  Ok...time for the real post.

Sunday night Mike asked me to get him up when I was leaving for work the next day.  Initially I said no.  I leave really early in the morning, especially for a guy who could still sleep until noon.  I thought, this never works when he asks me to...I always end up getting yelled at...he always gets angry and says I'm not getting up...So initially I said no. 

I'm not sure what made me change my mind. 

Monday morning comes along and I'm finished getting ready our conversation at 5:25 in the morning goes as follows...
Abby:  Get up Mike.
Mike:  Not yet.
Abby:  Remember last night when you asked me to get you up when I was leaving?  I said to you you'll never get up.  You know how early it is.  Well I'm doing what you asked and I don't have time to sit here and make sure you get up. -- by the way...I do know that I'm basically having a conversation with myself at this point.
Mike:  Good Job.
Abby:  Good Job to what?
Mike:  Good Job, Nice Try
Abby:  What?
Mike:  Good job, Nice Try, I'm not getting up... and he rolls over.
Abby:  Goodbye.  

I left because I knew his alarm was set.
