So Matt got home from his work trip yesterday. Not having seen each other in several days, you can imagine the first thing we did . . . yep, you probably guessed it, we got in a big fight. Sigh. It made me really mad mostly because I was so darn excited for him to come home and then it was a shitty night. Apparently we both had some pretty strong feelings about what constitutes proper Christmas card etiquette. I'll leave it at that. Things are okay, now. We kissed and made up.
Today I had to take Eloise to the doctor, yet again, because she had developed a really bad booty rash over the last few days and then she woke up this morning with a red rash and blister-like bumps all over the places that the edge of her cloth diaper cover would have touched. We aren't sure why, but it might be from some component of the cover that her skin doesn't like (maybe latex?). So she has a yeast rash and then red bumps all over. It's very sad, indeed. She's a pretty sensitive girl! I'm becoming to be best buds with the pediatrician. I've talked to her on the phone and we've seen her so many times in the past few months!
Eloise and I attempted to stop at Whole Foods after the pediatrician appointment, which, apparently, ever other human on the face of the earth had decided to do, as well. It was a zoo! We were able to get all the things we needed and dodge all the things I really, really wanted (a tin of peppermint bark, perhaps?), but didn't need. I'm going to start taking some acidophilus which is supposed to help Eloise's skin, as well. Apparently the pediatrician thinks she may have eczema, in addition to her whole host of other problems.
I have spent some time tonight looking up mixed drink recipes onlie because I decided a fun new tradition would be to get our drink on for Christmas Eve. And by
"get our drink on" I mean that I will have one and a half drinks and be completely loaded and Matt will consume the rest of the two bottles of booze and still be completely sober. Ah, well. In case you're wondering, our drink of choice is basically a White Russian, but with egg nog instead of cream. Yummy! I can't wait!
