We super bravely decided we would do three things outside the house yesterday. 1. try to find non-maternity clothes that would allow me to leave the house with a bit more ease. 2. Buy arugula from grocery store. 3. Buy face lotion from mall - trying to avoid full on acne.
We managed to purchase a few things that I will hopefully take out of the bag and actually wear. I only cried in the changing room briefly. I avoided yelling about my babies at the employee who would only let us take 6 items in the dressing room at a time (I do know she's just doing her job, my rage just doesn't really care). The grocery store was non-eventful - it was a small store we never go to with therefore had minimal chance of seeing another human we know. The mall. We tried to find the entrance closest to the Clinique counter. Made it inside, to the counter, avoided looking at infant and mom already at counter. Gathered and purchased vital lotion. Then the sales woman offered us a serum, a "smart serum" that could read what kind of stress our faces have experienced and repair it. We both laughed/snorted. As if. We took the samples.
