Some days I wonder if things are ever going to calm down for us. I remember when we were nearing the end of December, I said to myself that I would try to stop being so busy and filling up every free moment and relax more in 2016. Heck, in the interview I did with Heidi, I said that I was going to do that! Life seems to have a different plan for us. 😓

On Thursday night, Winston woke up in at 3am crying in his crate. He never does that so I knew something was wrong. As soon as I opened the crate, he bolted out so I took him outside and well, to spare you the details, we’ll just say he made a mess. We also saw a little vomit outside of his crate. We thought maybe something was just upsetting his stomach. Friday he was fine, although when he went to the bathroom, it wasn’t normal, even though we had been feeding him a bland diet of chicken and rice. Saturday, he woke up at 1am crying in his crate. Same thing happened as Thursday night except this time, we noticed a lot of vomit in his crate and his dinner he had eaten earlier. We called the vet early on Saturday morning and we are supposed to hear back today whether or not tests show a parasite or not. The vet is thinking maybe he had too many treats at physical therapy on Wednesday but it really honestly could be a multitude of things. As of now, he’s on anti-vomiting and anti-diarrheal medication. Seriously – can anything else happen to this poor pup?! 😞

On top of all that on Saturday morning, we had a previously scheduled listing meeting with our realtor that day, as well. We figured out mostly everything and we are kicking everything to high gear soon. We will likely be listing on or before March 20. Completely depends on when we can get most stuff done. I have a feeling it will be before March 20 because I’m crazy and have been boxing everything up lately and making us get the house ready for showing. We are just so sick of our neighborhood and can’t wait for a single family home with a big backyard for Winston 😍

Saturday evening, Jason and I spent it cleaning out our closets and drawers, putting stuff in donation piles and trash piles. I scheduled a Salvation Army pickup this week and yesterday, I started cleaning out our kitchen cabinets. I’m literally just boxing everything up that I don’t think we’ll be using from now until we move. Which I’m also slightly stressed out about because if we sell our house fast and we haven’t found a house we love, then we could end up in an apartment temporarily which means moving twice. Gah. Keep your fingers crossed for us that the timing all works out perfectly and everything falls into place 🙏

    I am sending you all the positive vibes on finding a new home and that Winston will feel better. Trust me, it will all work out! Now, I need a bite of this amazing looking gnocchi!

    Oh Julie, I am praying for sweet little Winston and also for the house situation!! My husband and I recently moved to Des Moines for his job and don’t know how long we will be here, so I know what it feels like to be living in an unsettling environment! I can also empathize with having a sick puppy. Reese has had a few puking episodes and it turns me into an emotional mess. You’ll get through this! Hang in there!

    P.S. This recipe is AMAZING and I’m making this later this week now. Thanks for sharing!

    I absolutely love gnocchi and really knew much about how to eat it other than adding some pesto or marinara sauce, but this…oh man. Looks so delicious!!
