ten tidbits on a tuesday...

1. i despise unloading the dishwasher these days so we have been using paper plates and plastic cups.  i don't run the dishwasher until we are out of silverware.  then i leave the clean dishes in the dishwasher for at least a day praying billy will put them away...not.gonna.happen.

2. billy is a night owl and has been sleeping on the couch the past 2-3 weeks straight.  this will probably continue until baby comes (maybe longer).  these days when i go to bed i go straight to sleep without watching tv.  billy is like a child who can't sleep in the dark without noise.  he has the tv on the entire night.  he even wakes up and eats ice cream cookie sandwiches in the middle of the night and watches nickelodeon/disney channel (don't tell him i told you), haha! 

3. i eat non-stop.  i seriously can't stop.  i eat something, feel satisfied for about 20 minutes and i'm hungry again.  i just tell myself that baby cullen is growing and he's the one gaining the weight....wishful thinking on my part.  i have a feeling our culley is going to be a small baby.

4. our doctor's son, who is my age, is billy's assistant coach for his hockey teams.  billy coaches youth hockey, he's got 3 teams right now.  every time we go in for my appointments A LOT more hockey talk goes on than baby and momma chat.  speaking of those teams, two had tournaments over the weekend and the older kids won first place!!  my doctor is also the father in-law of a guy billy coaches skills development with for hockey. small world....

5. billy has been to every single one of my doctor's appointments!  he is SOOO excited about becoming a daddy! melts.my.heart.

6. even though he has been to all my appts we are now into his super busy time of the year for hockey, he is only home 1-2 nights a week.  this will be our life for the next 6 months.  i tend to have withdrawals and get cranky when he's not around.  his love is my drug.

7.  have i mentioned we live in THE STATE OF HOCKEY?!  it doesn't matter that it's spring, going into summer.  hockey in minnesota NEVER stops.

8.  i'm ready to feed my phone to the garbage disposal.  i hate it, i have a palm pre...it's my 6th one!  the phone has ISSUES!  it's current problem, it won't charge or hold a charge.  so annoying and frustrating!

9. my bestie and i were debating whether or not to get tickets to the britney spears concert and we came to the decision that we were both going to renew our zoo memberships instead.  i guess that means we are growing up and have different priorities now, our little boys! :)

10. it is going to snow today...weather man said it just depends on the part of the state you are in for how much you'll get.  it's half way through april, it should NOT be snowing.  it's supposed to be in the 50's and sunny this weekend so i'm just looking forward to that. and Easter! :)

oh my goodness Annie your husband seriously cracks me up!!!

I am still a Brittany fan, but I so know what you mean about changing priorities. I cannot wait to take our little girl to the park, the zoo, museums, all kinds of fun stuff!!!

PorkStar said...

Your husband is a good man, a very good man, I miss the days when I had the exwife around and we dreamed of occasions like these. I also used to get cranky when she wasn't around or when she traveled. I would get very depressed and sick.

Nice post.

Aly @ Analyze This said...

Whaaaaat?!?!? You're not going to get Britney tickets?? That's just a sin! Haha!!

Michelle (michabella) said...

SNOW?! In APRIL?!!? I didn't realize Hockey was so crazy up there. Hockey is like non existent in FL. I think its so cute that y'all renewed your zoo memberships :) What awesome mommies you'll be! <3

Courtney said...

I had a Palm Pre for literally a week last year and I hated it. Mine didn't hold a charge either! So I decided to get the HTC Hero and I love it!

Meg said...

Sounds like hockey season in your house, lol. I love it. I am sorry your phone isn't working well that is just so obnoxious.

Hang in there, little or should I say big (by the way you're eating) Cully will be making his arrival shortly. ;)

Jenn @ West Sac Honey said...

I like the choosing of zoo tickets instead of Britney totally a sign of the times when you realize priorities!

I despise the dishwasher... But I hate cleaning the shower even more!

Mrs. Potts said...

Oh my word! I hate unloading the dishwasher too! I don't know why, I just do.

I need to schedule a date to take my niece & nephew to the zoo soon before it gets too hot. Speaking of weather, I'm sorry it is going to snow again. I hope you'll be done with that soon!!

Marian said...

Seriously, I absolutely HATE doing dishes!! I always try to tell myself to just do them then I won't have to worry about them....but I just can't talk it up to myself enough:)

Jumping Jack said...

I HATE to empty the dishwasher too! Luckily after an argument over the dishes, Ran has started emptying it for me. I can handle filling it up!

Snow? OMG - it should be spring already!

So cute that hubs has gone to all of your appts.

Meagan said...

Why do you think Cullen will be small?

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

Emptying the dishwasher is the worst. We have a bad habit of letting it go so long, that by the time we do empty it, we have so many dishes in the sink we immeditately fill it up!

I can't believe Billy has made it to all your doctor's appts. Towards the end you go so much even I didn't want to go! Haha. It was 30 minutes in the waiting room for 5 min with the doc.....weight, BP, pee in a cup....go home. Boring!

Stew and Allison said...

Hi Annie!
Thanks for following my blog too! Yes, we have the same due date 4/28. I'm so ready! I can't wait to see your little man. Hang in there! :)

Lil' Woman said...

I'm the same way with dishes...I hate putting things away.

Heather @ Mrs. Southern Bride said...

I HATE loading the dishwasher too. Why haven't I thought of buying paper plates? haha, good idea! ;-)

Neely said...

Chicago Cuisine Critique said...

Annie said...

You are getting so close Annie...I was totally a bottemless pit when I was preggers....I could just eat and eat and eat!!

Sorry that B has been gone a lot....but when C gets here you will never be lonely again :) He will be the best company ever, and you will get TONS of bonding time with him!!

I went to a Britney Spears concert a couple of years ago. It was really good, amazing performance, but I probably wouldn't go and see her again.

Carol {Everyday Delights} said...

Oh my gosh I hate unloading the dishwasher..sooooo boring!!

Melissa said...

Unloading the dishwasher gets on my nerves too so we use paper plates a lot too!

cait said...

new to your blog...congrats on your sweet baby! I am right with you on unloading the dishwasher...I despise it and hubby doesn't see it as something that really needs to get accomplished until I'm complaining about it. :) My sweet hubby has been to all my appointments so far too...and plans on coming to all of them. Devoted hubbies/daddies are the best!

Cole said...

Other than cleaning the bathroom, emptying the dishwasher is my least favorite household task. Not that it's hard...just, blah.

Snow still?!?! I hope this is your last blast of snow for the year!

Jax said...

Girl, I am so sorry that it's still snowing there. My goodness! And I also have a palm. I HATE IT. HATE IT. I'm on my 3rd one and am just literally waiting out my contracts. I want something else so badly. So.annoying. Everyone's all like "Get that app." And I say "I can't...and I hate you." haha! ;) I hate doing the dishes, too.. but admittedly, I had no dishwasher in my last apt soooo I convince myself I can handle this. that said, I wash out the same cup almost all week and keep re-using it so I dont have to wash it... lol! #lazy

Blicious said...

uggh i cant stand Britney so good choice. hahahaha

love jenny xoxo said...

It can't believe it is still snowing... remember last year when we didn't get any snow after Feb?? Can we go back to that plan!

I would love to go to the Britney show, but the zoo is a good idea, it will be perfect for walking around with little Cullen! Plus I'm bais, I worked there for 5 years :) Yay MN Zoo!

XOXO

"9. my bestie and i were debating whether or not to get tickets to the britney spears concert and we came to the decision that we were both going to renew our zoo memberships instead. i guess that means we are growing up and have different priorities now, our little boys! :)" love this...

i am have come to the REALIZATION and ACCEPTANCE that i too will not be going to Brit Brit this year :( when she is here i will either A. just have had baby sonnek OR B. baby sonnek will be VERY close and would probably bust out during the concert- which would be a GREAT story but probably not the BEST choice... meh...

MJ said...
