The only time I ever have a breakout is when I use anything other than the hot water of a shower to clean my face so I have nothing to offer. Maybe try just doing hot water washes and see if it clears up at all? I am totally skin clueless.
I'm spending my Black Friday celebrating 20 weeks(!!) and will be putting up the remaining exterior decorations before moving back inside to finish what I've started. We have four lit trees in this house right now and I still have a lot of decorating to do before our 6th annual cookie decorating party on Dec 8th. Since this coming on the tail end of me finishing my massive reorg and house detox I have a LOT of work ahead of me. Progress is progress though so I'm pleased.
Thanksgiving was spent at the In-laws. It was just the kids and their spouses and children which was a change from past years. Maybe for the better though as DH's Nonna and DD's namesake passed away in September and we all had that on our mind. So having MILs mother and brother go to her sisters instead this year, and having BIL & SIL come in from the Bay Area for once was a nice mixup and distractor. SIL is 16 weeks pregnant and her bump was as big as mine! Hehe, she has quite the appetite and it's really cute to see because she is so tiny. She is a first time mom so she had a lot of questions that I was happy to give my experiences on. I tried to stress to her that she will have to base everything on what works for them instead of what has worked for others in the past. I think she will do well.
The drama of the night came with my little 2 year old niece. She has had this stye(sp?) on her lower eye lid for the last two months that no doctor was willing to do much too. Finally it's started to get to the point where it looks like a huge zit needing to be popped and the doctor told my L&D RN SIL and my Pharmacist DH to lance it with a sterile 22-gauge needle. !!! I wanted nothing to do with it but my SIL, DH and MIL were all in the bathroom with my little niece trying to do this last night. Oh man.... They managed to lance it enough to release pressure so my SIL was applying heat and some ointment. DH and SIL were so proud of themselves and I was just... no way. I honestly couldn't believe a ped told them to do that. My pregnant SIL kept saying that she would trust them since they are two medical professionals. LOL. DH has wanted to go back to school to be an ER doctor for the last few years but hasn't acted on it because he doesn't want to lose time with me and the kid(s) so instead he reads medical textbooks and other stuff on it and talks in great length to buddies of his who are ER docs. He has this mega medical kit that he takes on the family hunting trips and has these ridiculously weird but totally useful skills. He's one of those geeky types that enjoys reading manuals whenever he can and actually absorbs a lot from it.
Anyway.. Yea, that was our Thanksgiving. It was eventful.... We all came home and were in bed by 9pm. DH had to work today though I hope they will be slow enough to close up and come home early.
