This week at casa cardicorgi

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. And Happy Summer to everyone!

The beginning of summer hasn't been nearly as "summery" as the last couple of weeks, but my allergies are really appreciating the slightly damp weather right now.

We had a pretty mellow week. We got back into our routine after the vacation weeks and just enjoyed not having much to do. That will all change this week when we start our next session of classes at the Y! We'll have our usual Toddler Gym class and widgetsworld is starting swimming classes. She's really looking forward to it, especially since she gets to go by herself while I watch through the window (she's so independent). Adding those to our week means that there aren't any days where we just stay home all day! I'm not sure how that happened... for all my planning, I never see these things coming.

anonymoushubby had his follow-up appointment with the neurologist last week. We found out the results of his testing (mostly normal) and his sleep study (really abnormal). He was being worked up for sleep apnea vs narcolepsy... apparently, they sometimes have the same symptoms and can only be differentiated by the sleep study. As it turns out, he has severe obstructive sleep apnea (he stopped breathing more than 40 times an hour and woke up more than 50 times an hour) and what they call "pathological sleepiness", plus his blood oxygen saturation goes down to 85% during the apnea. So he went back to the sleep lab to be fitted for what's called a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine that he will wear when he sleeps. Considering that he's apparently been severely sleep and oxygen deprived, that should make him feel much better.

We spent Saturday down at Meeker Days and it didn't even rain on us. The festival was lots of fun, though we didn't get to browse as many of the booths as I would have liked. Once widgetsworld spotted the bouncy rides, it was all over! She spent a lot of time bouncing, going on everything they had there. We convinced her to walk around with us after a while and managed to check out all of the things that we really wanted to see. We even got to watch the belly dancers, which was something that I wanted to do. The girls both enjoyed that, too, which was nice since it meant that they sat there and watched instead of running around... for awhile, anyway. sprocketsspace was most impressed by all of the dogs walking around, though. She loves pointing out dogs to us.

Father's Day was very, very mellow around here. Since anonymoushubby already had his unofficial Father's Day a couple of weeks ago (can't beat the radio convention for Father's Day gifts around here), our "present" to him was a relaxing bath and a few hours off. The girls and I went shopping so that he could have peace and quiet to play with his new radio gear. We all spent the rest of the day lazing about, reading and playing. It was nice to be slackers for awhile.
