Can you sleep on your back?

I had a sleep study last night.  I have episodes of kicking in my sleep that we are trying to figure out.  It was a different evening, going to the hospital and "checking in".  The paper work I got for the sleep study said it was like a hotel. I'm not sure I'd call it a hotel, but it was nicer than a normal hospital room.  As I was trying to fall asleep (actually almost asleep) the technician came back in and asked if I could sleep on my back.  I told him I probably wouldn't stay that way, and he said it was ok, if I could just go to sleep,on my back... Turns out, I can't go to sleep on my back 😝

 Almost six years ago now, Josh and I went on our first cruise. It was fantastic! I loved it!
 I became a little addicted to cruises... We went on a second cruise later that year.
We haven't been on a third cruise yet, but the itch to go is strong!

 We are a family that likes to swim!  One of favorite family vacation destination is a little town in Wyoming called Thermopolis. Thermopolis has a couple different pools that you can choose from.
 All the pools are filled with hot springs water.  The pools are hot tub warm, even when it's snowing.
We haven't been in the last several years (since before Spencer was born).  I think we need to go again soon :)

Cat has always been curious... There was a time whenever I picked up my camera there would be new pictures that Cat had taken (above picture is one of her selfies).

Mom fail

This silly kid has always made me laugh. I think Spencer finds true joy in making people laugh.  He wants people to be happy.  He is also forgiving... Like when he's suppose to bring snack for preschool... And mom doesn't remember until the day after 😣

Sometimes it's good to see old pictures... And be reminded of the destruction other kids have done...

In my post yesterday I shared that the last year (plus) has been a hard time for me.  Today at church we were talking about many things one being how we often beat ourselves up for not doing more or being better.  I know that I am guilty of doing this to myself. It has been something that I have been trying to stop for awhile now (some days I am much better than others). This afternoon I was reminded of a song that has helped me on tough days...

From the movie Trolls (not the whole song)

Hey! I'm not giving up today. There's nothing getting in my way. And if you knock knock me over, I will get back up again. If something goes a little wrong, well you can go ahead and bring it on. Cause if you knock knock me over, I will get back up again.
