P.S. coffee / tea doesn't count LOL ... I drink enough of both ... it has to be plain water!
I actually drink quite a bit of water... I'm terrible at it when I'm home for some reason, but in the office I refill my 20oz water bottle about 5-6 times throughout the day.

If I religiously put on lotion EVERY day, it's tolerable. It's still there, but I'm not scratching my skin off. I can't use any cheap, wimpy lotion, either.. So far, my best combo is baby oil AND some heavy-duty lotion. Fragrance-free is better, since it doesn't have the alcohols/whatever in it to help the fragrance last longer/dry my skin out.

Drives me NUTS, though! My arms get it some, as well...but it's mostly my legs.

HMM, have you tried Hemp Cream? They sell it at the body shop The Body Shop - Award-Winning Body Butter

My sister has exzema on her feet and uses this and it really helps ...

It is a bit "greasy" so you might want to only use it at night LOL ... I don't think you want to walk around all day with your clothes stuck to you!!!

I may give that a try, along with Michelle's suggestion!

I can just see it now...between the dog hair that gets EVERYWHERE in the house, and the cat hair that's on the bed from the two of them napping there while I'm away at work, I could be waking up with animal hair covering my legs. SO attractive.

I also need to set up the humidifier in my room again. With the dryer weather and the heat turned on, it's annoyingly dry in there.

Haha, will do! I mean, it's bad enough when I'm working out and I have to do sit-ups or any yoga/stretch that involves being on the floor. Any part of me that comes in contact with said floor that happens to be the slightest bit damp from sweat comes away hairy. Darn pets. They should really learn to clean up after themselves. Or at least stop attacking the vacuum when I try to do it for them.

LOL I would certainly enjoy that.

Hey, my mom did it to me when I swore at her, it worked! (Mind you, i was 13 ... not 22) ... sigh, Maybe once the baby arrives she'll change her attitude.

I've never been in that situation, but I can just imagine how horrible it makes you feel ... some days, corporal punishment is not necessarily a bad thing! Hang in there!

I ran a heavy, fresh track yesterday afternoon. Mike came home from hunting with all kinds of tasty things for the dogs.

Lonestar runs it 100 miles an hour. He fans the track, going from the left to the right with the track in the middle. He isn't interested in anything left on the track to bait. He wants the target. He barks, he rushes, nose glued to the ground. The entire world has melted away. The only movie playing in his head is his image of the target. I have to run behind him so to not hinder him on the long lead. Once he finds the target he vocalizes & circles. Then plops down to relish in his prize, looking at me for encouragement. He won't quit. Failure isn't an option.

Hondo is methodical. Slow and steady. Taking his time with every smell. Stops every once in a while to look around to see what else is going on. Then puts his head back down to business. Any bait on the track he'll pick up and enjoy. He'll lick the ground to make sure he hasn't missed a single drop. If he comes across a heavy scent he'll sniff and puff his lips a couple of times to really study the scent. I could nearly take a nap while he follows the track. If I try to encourage him to move along, he'll look at me as if to say, "Seriously? I don't see your nose on the ground..."

Once he finds the target he doesn't vocalize. He calmly stands next to it looking at me for permission to eat it. Permission given, he lays down to enjoy his prize.

Two different breeds. Two different dogs. Two different methods to reach the same goal. One is like watching an action adventure movie, the other like watching a romance movie.

I'm easily entertained.

Hopefully she'll come around, speaking from experience it's really hard to watch one of your parents restart their life but that's a really immature reaction. She should count her lucky stars that she actually has a stepmom that cares enough about her to be affected her statement. I wouldn't let it bother you, focus on the positive, she'll regret what she's missing out on.
