Seem to be feeling better, which is a relief. We've been getting outside a lot, running into neighbors and chatting, which cheers me up.
This Wednesday I'm supposed to accompany a friend to some sort of champagne lunch with aromatherapy and massage at a fancy clothing store in downtown Houston. This sounds great, but I am going to have to do a mini-makeover on myself between now and then. Yesterday I found myself applying "stain stick" to my shirt while I was still wearing it. And I hate to say, but I didn't take the shirt off right away, I continued running around with it on for another hour.
When I go out into the world, I assess my clean shirts for the one with the fewest Aquaphor and Desitin stains. I'm not sure why it is, but the ointments we use for diaper rash seem to be the hardest things to get out of clothes. And the twins flip and flop during diaper changes like huge fish fighting to get back to the sea. That sounds like a bad thing for a mom to say, but it's the analogy that always comes to my mind. By the time I get Aquaphor onto the key areas of the boy, there is usually also some on me. On the other hand when my husband will watch the kids so I can go have champagne and aromatherapy, I'll go in a shower curtain if I have to.
My sister is coming to visit from Massachussetts next week, and I'm so excited. We always have a great time together. She's going to be here to help out when we take the twins to TX Children's Hospital to see a developmental pediatrician. G. goes on Tuesday, and B. goes on Wednesday. I can't imagine they'll tell us anything too surprising, but I'm hoping they'll have some helpful suggestions.
