weekend snaps

we had a really great weekend, but i’m not gonna lie – 50% of it was spent tending to a clingy, unhappy baby – coughing, not sleeping or eating well – we think she’s teething because she points to her mouth and says, “teeeeee.”  {that and…there are other obvious signs.}  yes, it’s adorable.  but not that adorable when you’re lacking sleep.  she woke up this am with a fever and her cough sounds a little wheezy.  i called the doctor to confirm that fever/cough/runny nose is associated with teething, but i was wrong – turns out it’s a very common misconception that those symptoms have something to do with growing teeth.  they don’t.  so, i’m off today and taking her to the doctor later this afternoon.
another interesting thing happened this weekend… i was doing the laundry, had just finished loading the washer and went to grab for the detergent cup…turns out mark had rinsed the cup, accidentally leaving maybe an inch of watery soap in the bottom…and then it splashed into my eyes. it was freaking painful.  and dramatic.  i ran in from the garage yelling mark’s name, rubbing and clawing at my stinging eyes, throwing blame at mark, convinced that i was going blind.  eventually i was able to see again, but the pain lasted throughout the day.  even this morning, i woke up with a crusty, puffy eye.
the good news:  we went on two dates!  no kiddos!  wine!  food!  friends!  i love my husband.  mostly we’re just on autopilot…trapped by the day-to-day, but when we get a break from our routine and it’s just the two of us…i’m quickly reminded of how much fun he is, how easy it is to be with him.  he’s just so great.  of course, that was before he inadvertently threw soap in my eyes.  {wink wink.  i keed.}

anyway…happy monday!

1.  taylor volunteered at the homeless shelter on saturday morning.  i’m wondering if i should pretend to be homeless in order to get him to make eggs for breakfast…i’ll keep you posted.
2.  we celebrated a beautiful friend’s fabulous 40th.
3.  and then we went to a bar and then to see this is 40.  it was okay.  the main attraction was the theater itself – reclining seats and servers.  we ordered sushi and a delicious mini pizza.  popcorn shmopcorn.
4.  zoey was miserable most of sunday.  in good spirits, but very lethargic and clingy.  she spent the day snoozing on our laps or screaming in our faces.
5.  mark bought a shit ton of fruits and veggies from the farmer’s market.  we are gonna juice-it-up this week! 

update:  took zoey to the doctor.  as i mentioned – fever, cough, wheezing, labored breathing – and while she tested negative for RSV, the doctor is still concerned.  so, they gave her a breathing treatment while we were at the doctor’s office.  and although it helped a bit, we’ll have to use a nebulizer for the next several days.  fingers crossed she gets well soon. 

also…it took me all day to write this post.

  1. I hope she gets better soon! As a mother of asthmatics, I completely feel your pain. It sucks seeing them with breathing problems…and it sucks giving them the treatments!
