Currently: December 2021

Welcome to December! What do you have going on this month? We have a busy month on deck with all sorts of gatherings and activities. Here’s what’s current in my life this month.

Current booksΒ I recently finished this baking memoir and now I’m onto a midwifery memoir, this dog health book, and this motherhood devotional-style book. Sadie is currently loving all of her Christmas-themed books! I’ll have to dedicate a post to all the ones we own, love, and read over and over again πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ„

Current food Venison again! This time from our preacher and his wife. We are spoiled 😊

Current baked good Good ‘ol chocolate chip cookies πŸͺ

Current drink Starbucks Holiday Blend. It has herbal and sweet maple notes 😍

Black cat coffee mug (more…)

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 πŸ˜…

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 πŸ˜‰ 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.
