Emergency Room Visits and Our Weekend

Happy Sunday! Whew, it has been quite a crazy week for the Zottola Household. We somehow caught the stomach flu for the second time this year 😅

Jimmy started feeling nauseous mid-week and had some GI symptoms that kept him out of work and then led him to the hospital for fluids by Friday. Sadie had a lot of the same symptoms and wasn’t eating much throughout the week.

I made sure to try and keep Sadie out of Jimmy’s hair, so we had a little back-of-the-car popsicle date on Friday. Bonus: it got something in her belly and she didn’t even realize my trick 😉 Though she didn’t finish the popsicle it was at least something for our already light eater!

We thought we were at the tail end of things on Friday night, but I started vomiting around midnight and ended up in the emergency room by morning because I was feeling faint and couldn’t keep even keep gatorade down.


Let’s talk about books (and other random things)

Remember how I read a ton of books last year? I have only read eight so far this year. Ugh. I blame it on writing a book and discovering Podcasts. I’ve been making my way through a few nonfiction books (The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up and Childbirth Without Fear– a random combo, I know!), but I’m looking for some good fiction.

I’d love to read something that’s not emotionally heavy, if that makes sense. Any recommendations?

Aaaand onto the randomness!

Cat on the dryer

One of my clients has the most awesome bengal cat. He has such a fun, mischievous personality. As I’ve mentioned before, his favorite spot in the house is on top of the dryer. I like to call the bottom picture his superman pose.

Spider web

Check. Out. This. Spider. Web. Eeeeek!

Other things:
-My rearview mirror melted off of my windshield today. That was interesting.
-Jimmy and I visited his cousin and her husband in the hospital last week to meet their new baby. Ahhh, it was the best. Hi Katie 🙂
-A few weeks ago, I had a dream I was kicking a soccer ball and totally kicked Jimmy super hard and woke him up out of a dead sleep. Also, I had a dream last night that I gave birth to triplets. What is with these dreams of multiples?! I’m getting freaked out, haha.

Do you have crazy dreams?

Have you read any good fiction lately?
