super dry hands

now that we are fostering 5 little pups and a big mama dog and after getting sick from what could have been some kind of bacterial infection, i’ve been even more diligent that ever before about washing my hands after handling any of the dogs.

as a result, my hands have become super dry. i’ve tried using lotion, but either i’m not using enough or the soap is just too strong. either way, my knuckles have become really dry and it has now spread to other joints. so dry that they are cracking and bleeding. 🙁 i think that i will go and try to get some super lotion to help out with my hands.

the worst case scenario is that i’ll be wearing vaseline gloves soon. =P
