Ok so apparently I do not have the juice for organized, thoughtful blog posts these days but I do want to talk about things and update and all that so here's what seem to be the only posts I do these days besides Disney photos-I bring you: What's on my mind lately..(WRITTEN ABOUT A WEEK AGO)

++We spent the night in the hospital last night with Patrick. He just has had such a rough winter, he seems to get sick every other week. I am hoping this was the winter's last hurrah and that we can all take a long break from the fevers (him) and the anxiety (me) for a bit. He was much better today and you don't realize how much you take them just being normal and asking for a snack or protesting help with socks for granted until they are sick and don't do that anymore.

++I went on a girls trip this weekend. I met some girlfriends from home in sunny (not) Montana where we stayed in a cabin and hot tubbed in the dark, spent 4 hours in Target, did facemasks that made us look like a horror movie and talked about everything from motherhood to Logan Huntzberger until late hours of the night. I had pretty horrible traveling days to and from and actually spent more time in airports than I did with my girlfriends but it still is so nice to have friends you can totally be yourself with.  I go months and months without seeing them but can jump right back in so easily and THAT is something I don't take for granted. Also, they are all Canadian friends and had never had Chick Fil A and I felt like I was watching them open a gift I had thought long and hard about for them. "I can really have as many sauces as I want?" Your wish is their command!!!

++I'm coaching Everett's soccer team this spring. We are only three games in but I already know I will volunteer for this for as many years as they will let me. I LOVE IT! Such a motherhood perk for me right now.

++Big News! We are staying in Utah this summer!! Ben and I will not have to be apart for four months and I am really looking forward to a Utah summer (I've only had one and I have lived here for ten years) Although I have really loved spending the summers in Canada at my parents too, I am already missing it. I think we will spend most of July up there though, swimming every day, eating Costco poutines once a week and I love that my boys get so close with my parents during that time!

++I'm still not over Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum's break up. At least we still have the royal baby's pending arrival for reason to get up in the morning!

++I'm on season six of The West Wing, you know that old 90's Whitehouse show you probably remember your parent's watching? Ya, that one. It calms me. It hasn't been as good since Rob Lowe left in Season 4, but I still love it. I just have a crush on Martin Sheen as President and just the whole gang. I went to the movie Love, Simon the other day (by myself, I liked it) and it was really good and made me cry and I also have another crush on that main actor (Nick Robinson). Other crushes right now include John Mayer (please tell me you are watching his instagram stories, he is GOLD) and the girl at Sodalicious that gave the kids free cookies because they said thank you when she gave them their drinks.

++On above-mentioned 4-hour Target trip, I found some goods! These high rise Universal Thread jeans are really good. All of us girls tried them all and they looked so good on everyone-sisterhood of the traveling pants status!! They are comfy, but not too thin, really cute styles, come in short/reg/long lengths and are only $25! I got this pair and I want the black ones next! Also, these Birkenstock knockoffs are so good, they will be perfect for the pool, or really anywhere. The rubber real Birk ones like this are $40 and these are only $12.99.  I also got these kids ones for the boys, but I might take them back, as one does with 50 percent of the things they buy at Target (me, so guilty). Also, I've wanted this pitcher since it first came out. I have a thing for pitchers...

++My parents are coming this weekend for my brother's graduation and we all can't wait. My list of Canadian goods for them to bring me gets longer every time. I bet you didn't know Canada has better peanut butter, pickles and chips! Chocolate and my mom's homemade raspberry jam are a given always.

++Laying in bed surfin' the world wide web next to Ben.  Me:"Whatcha watching?" Ben: "Just someone buying a car with only pennies" This is 2018

Anyways that was my mostly pointless post. It was a rough couple of weeks but the car is cleaned, the forecast is sunny, Disney in 11 days and we've got a soccer game to win tonight. Happy Days are here again.
