Don't worry- some moisturizer will clear that right up.

My skin was so dry that it was starting to flake off in a fine white powder on the tips of my fingers at the slightest touch. It’s been going on for a while now. I assume that it has to do with the weather being dry, but I don’t know for sure. Paradoxically, being dry means that I’m breaking out like crazy as I slather on moisturizer and my body tried to figure out some state of equilibrium between the two extremes.

Aside from the dryness, it’s difficult to remember that it is winter. The days are getting significantly longer. The weather is more consistently mild (a lot of people around here would disagree with me on this one, but it feels mild to me), and the sun is higher and brighter in the sky. I keep having to remind myself that it is February.

I realized today that I’ve gotten out of my list- making habit for the past few weeks. On a few occasions I’ve written out a list and then failed to cross off a single item: not because I didn’t get it done, but because I didn’t think to check back on the list once it was done. I’ve felt pretty good without the lists, but it is messing with my sense of context for dates and times and deadlines.

So I made it through a busy week and I have the weekend to catch up with myself (I hope).
