Well, it's Spring Break for Cade, and we have officially celebrated by doing absolutely NOTHING. I am a terrible mother. The weather was so beautiful last week, but this week it's been kinda sketchy, so that rules out all the outside stuff, though tomorrow we may brave the lower temps and go to the zoo or something. He's currently sitting under our kitchen table and sulking, probably cooking up some idea for deviant behavior, or worse, my untimely demise. I am going crazy - he's only been out of school for two days, and I already want to poke out my eyes. Somebody save me!

I feel like I've got cabin fever - with Cade out of school but the weather not quite nice enough to do anything, I feel stuck inside and it's driving me insane. It makes me want to go out and spend money (spring clothes for the kids, colored capri's or skinny jeans for me) but WE HAVE NO MONEY. Hello, we're building a house! Get the money spending ideas out of your head! Bad Brie. Baaaaddddd Brie! The last time I felt this cooped up and desperate to spend money was when I was stuck inpatient in treatment and couldn't even take a pee without someone peeking, let alone actually walk outside and get some fresh air therapy. And, feeling ANYTHING that reminds me of inpatient treatment is just not cool, so this sucks.
....Okay, so it's been about 20 minutes since I wrote the above paragraph, and I just talked to Baby Lover Man, and we went over the budget, and there is some money right now available to go buy Mila some spring clothes. Hooray! Baby Gap, here I come! Please save some beautiful floral printed summer dresses for Mila, m'kay? Hooray! My cabin fever blues are abating!
Allergy update: my face is doing better! I've started taking Zyrtec, and the itchiness is mostly gone - at least on my face, which is the place I was most concerned about. My arms and legs still itch and have rashes, but I'm hoping that will go away as I continue to take the Zyrtec. (Thanks Linds for the suggestion!) To all of you who commented or emailed me with ideas, thank you so much. I'm hoping the Zyrtec will be enough to get rid of this, but if not, because of you, I have lots of other things I can try! You da best, Blogxygeners!
So I'm off to shop. :) Shopping solves EVERYTHING.
Also, just wanted to let you all know that this Friday, Kendall would be turning two. If you are so inclined, please remember her by releasing a white balloon, or writing love on your arm, or maybe just by keeping her in your heart. It's going to be a little bit of an emotional day for me, and I'd love your support. And I will try to get through it without spending truckloads of money! ;)
