Later: I worked for a while, and then went to the doctor. The GP Dr. K. prescribed an ointment, and told me to get another over-the-counter ointment, and to wear cotton gloves over my hands once they were suitably lotioned up. I picked up takeout from Mandarin Express on my way to pick up the prescription. When I got to the store, I settled in to wait for the prescription and eat lunch. I got groceries after that, and stopped home briefly. I went back out to do a bit more work for B. and R., but that was only about another half an hour. It's just depressing that it gets dark so soon. It was dark by 4:30 p.m. today, but part of that was the rain.
It wasn't a great day, but it wasn't too bad, either.
