Spring Fevers

I have Little Man home from school today. Which means, I am home too :/ I am going to have no vacation time left by the time Christmas rolls around. Anyway, he's been complaining of an ear ache, but it hasn't been anything he's really fussed about until today. I went to wake him up and he was already awake. As soon as he saw me he burst into tears. He said he'd been up most of the night with his ear ache. He has been sniffly and snotty for the last week (ironically it all started up again after he played outside for 3 hours withOUT a coat after I told the kids they needed them and they asked their dad later after I was out of the room and he said it was ok to take them off) Anyway, So, I'm home. We are waiting for the doctor's office to open.

In other news, my brother is being a huge pain. He has some serious anger issues, abandonment issues, mental and emotional issues and he is taking them all out on us. My mom watched his daughter and her sister for Jessica (his ex) and he got so mad he blew up and disowned my family and removed us all from his facebook. Then, the next day, acted like nothing happened. He drives by Jessica's house at all hours, and now my mom and dad's. He's paranoid (I'm sure the coke isn't helping...) and I'm sick of all the drama. The severe mood swings. I am worried about Jessica and the babies. Ugh.

In the 100 days till Summer Challenge front, I am down another1.8 pounds. I knew it would be a smaller loss because of such a big loss last week, but I figured at least 5 pounds! Ha! It's ok though, I am sure I built some muscle and it does weigh more and a loss is a loss. I am still staying within my numbers, but I am struggling to get all my carbs in. I end the day at the top of my calorie range because I am trying to get in enough carbs. It's a little frustrating, but I'll figure something out. :)
