I'm especially glad we went back when we did because the place where she bit her lip was about three times it's normal size and he gave us a prescription for which I was especially thankful for yesterday, because without it (I won't get into details) I think we likely would have been begging to get in to see her doctor or going to urgent care (and that was after the first dose). By last night, after putting an antibiotic/antifungal/allergy medication mix on it all day, it was looking a little bit better and I was no longer panicking every time I looked over at her. And this morning it's almost a normal size. Who knew that biting a lip could turn so bad so fast?
My poor husband, you see two days ago, in the car, on the way back from finding an entire new wardrobe for Patrick for $25 at the baby thrift store I held up a cute bright tropical print button up shirt and showed it to Paul. Then we had the following conversation:
Paul: "Why do you like that but I had to get rid of my Cubavera shirts? (in case your wondering, this would be an example of the some of the shirts he's talking about... he loved them when we first got married and I most definitely did not. I just didn't like how they felt.).
Me: "This isn't a Cubavera shirt. This is cotton."
Paul: "My Cubavera shirts were cotton."
Me: "Sleezy cotton."
Paul: "Sleezy cotton? How can cotton be sleezy? You're crazy! Oh you have to write a blog post about your thoughts on sleezy cotton!"
Not a post Paul, but I'll give you a quick take. Oh, and I see that the product description for the Cubavera shirts at Macy's (I believe that's where yours were from) says Rayon/Polyester so it wasn't even sleezy cotton. It was sleezy wannabe cotton.
Paul: "Touche? That makes no sense. Touche literally means you scored a point.
Me: "Actually it means 'touch.'"
Paul: "No. You don't know what you're talking about. In fencing it means you scored a point. And how would that make sense?"
Me: "It means 'touch' and that I scored a point. And I did because your shirts weren't cotton."
Paul: "They used to make them in cotton. Mine were cotton."
Oh no my friend they were not. Because cotton cannot feel that sleezy. They were most definitely polyester parading as "cashmere" as the ad states. Too bad there aren't any left to prove my point. I kind of wish we had one in the house right now...
Does anyone else feel like there are a lot of mosquitoes out this year? We've been staying inside a lot because every time we step onto our lawn we get swarmed... and they don't seem to care about bug spray.
I've been thankful that people who I've talked to have said that this is a lot of mosquitoes compared to other years... because I was wondering if this is just how it is (since we didn't get to Michigan until August last year and when we arrived it was a dry year and we were eating outside in the evenings and not seeing any!).
Does it feel like there are a lot of mosquitoes (compared to other years) where you are? I don't like hiding inside from them, but I like finding out I have 20 new bites after being outside for a bit even less!
And here's a glimpse of a moment of reading practice yesterday:
