It’s been quite a week! We set a lot of different things in motion to make some changes this week, shifting stuff around, making different financial changes. We also had to deal with the insurance company over a small dent in Billy’s car that happened when he was hit while parked, and make some decisions on our barely functioning ancient A/C unit. Overall, it was a busy busy week and things have been pretty good for the most part.
I am going to probably skip around a bit, timeline wise. Wyatt had his EEG on Thursday, and he did so good. He is such a trooper all the time. It was supposed to be a 48 hour EEG, where we took him in, had him hooked up, then brought him home. However, on Wednesday the hospital called and I found out that a mistake was made in scheduling and this was a 30 minute EEG in office instead. So I imagine another EEG is in our future. I’m glad we at least got something done though.
He looks a little upset in that last photo. And he was. At me. Lol. I had to take my phone back for a minute and he was not happy with me. I don’t usually ever let him play with it (last time he did he called emergency so.. never again) but for the EEG I let him watch his YouTube favorites and Sesame Street. We got the results but I can’t interpret them so I am waiting on the doctor to call. But Wyatt did such a great job. He loved showing everyone his moon shirt, and it seems a lot of people really like the moon too. Or so they told him. The tech was also wonderful, she made the whole experience so much easier for all of us.
Wednesday I went back to work! For a short time but it was still something. I work part-time for my cousin at his law practice, and it is just the two of us. During the past 18 months though, he has been working from home and I haven’t been working at all. I just couldn’t juggle all of Wyatt’s needs and extra work, especially with never knowing quite when Billy is getting home from work. But now we are slowing adding in normalcy, like work. Brian is shifting his business away from the office entirely, and we are creating an office space in his home. I am looking forward to it, I can actually take Wyatt over there with me if need be and let him play or whatever while I work. But first, we need to get it organized. And since I had to pass by a Starbucks on my way over, I of course had to stop and pick up a new favorite, the Iced Matcha Green Tea Latte. So good!
And looking at this, I really need to do something about my nails today!
Last night Billy and I went out together, without Wyatt, for the first time since COVID. Our city has a Street Art Fair every year (except last year) and Billy and I have gone almost every year without fail. It’s been a while since I have gone on a Friday night though! I didn’t really look at the art too much, I was just too busy enjoying being out again. Looking around, people watching. We got tacos and split a beer, finished walking around, and that was about it. It was a beautiful night though, and with the music and the people and sights, it felt so alive. And so did I.
It should be a pretty slow Saturday around here, Billy has to wrap up some of our business today and then tonight we are going swimming at my in-laws with my brother and the fam.
I can’t wait to share some of the things we have been doing for Italy month! Hopefully next week I get a chance to round those up.
How was your week? What has been happening?

Isn’t it wonderful getting back to some kind of normalcy? How great it will be if you can work at an office space in your cousin’s home and take Wyatt with you.
Great photos and outings!
Sounds like a lot of things are getting organised and making life a little bit smoother here and there. I have a week off next week (the first since October: Christmas doesn’t count as our boiler had gone wrong and we spent the week trying to keep the house, ourselves and the cats warm) and as well as getting a blood test i was due in December and the hedges cut, I’m planning loads of rest and reading. So that’s what’s happening here. Hope the results come out OK.
Glad Wyatt was such a trooper. That looks like no fun. Glad you were able to get back to work and it sounds like an ideal situation. And yay for getting a Starbucks! Such a fun treat. I’m a big fan of Iced Chai Lattes myself. The Art Festival sounds fun and definitely like a nice bit of normalcy.

I’m so glad Wyatt did great with all the EEG stuff — I’m sorry he will have to go back but still, good for now. And three cheers on the street fair. I’ve yet to go to one (though I did hit a farmer’s market). I look forward to one later this summer!

We had a visit with our neurologist yesterday that went really well! She said we don’t need to do another EEG until next summer, so yay! I had fun at the street fair but it did feel sort of odd to be out with that many people again! Lol.
