My right hand is in a bad way. This is the worst time of year for my hands. First off, the heater is on and makes the air rather dry. Then the cold makes my hands chapped. Then add to that household duties like cleaning of kitchens, bathrooms, laundry, cooking and preparing food. Finally add kid duties like cleaning kid's noses and bottoms with the mandatory hand washing involved after said duties. My hands are a mess. I use the Aveeno Intense relief hand cream and Eucerin liberally and often, but my hands are still cracked and hurting. Luckily, I'm not working with yarn that snags easily, but still. Thoughts? Suggestions? The Boy and I went out together for some Mom/Son time at the mall. We had a lot of fun! All the Christmas shopping is over so we just walked around and got in the Christmas mood. The only damper is the miserable weather. No Cal is in the middle of one torrential rainstorm. Driving home necessitated driving through standing water 3 times. Ugh. I'm about to knti the heel flap of the second sock! Yay!! I better get back to it. I've set a goal of finishing the socks by Christmas.
