Some Things

Scene from the Lacuna Artist Lofts, Chicago, IL.

We’re home. At some point I’ll write an actual trip recap, but that day is not today. It was super relaxing for us to spend a few days away from the kids, and it was nice to enjoy some of the things we used to do regularly (aka vacation, nice restaurants, and museums) before we had kids. Also did I mention that we went to a wedding?! Because that is what orchestrated this little getaway for us in the first place.

All of the laundry is done, I got to soak in some epsom salts, it is like we compressed Sunday into four hours but hey we did it!

Last week I had my annual skin check. For the first time in five years, the dermatologist didn’t remove anything and sent me on my way with instructions to return in a year. So that was pretty great. As a reminder, if you are someone who has moles and has never had your skin mapped OR you have a weird mole you’re worried about OR you have a mole that has changed, GO TO THE DERMATOLOGIST. They also set me up with a retinol and long story short, I washed my face, used it once, got into the moisturizing game and now all of the skin on my face is falling off. If anyone needs me, I’ll just be over here waiting for the part where I am suddenly radiant and glowing. Related/unrelated: This is why I never washed my face before.

Otherwise, this week we are just trying to get re-settled before Marcus’ nasal surgery on Wednesday and then his subsequent recovery while we (aka me and the children) throw ourselves into Thanksgiving on Thursday.
