Wear. Sunscreen.

Thursday, March 11, 2010


If you'll observe the dramatic line along my right arm (your left), then you'll notice that "hey, lady, you've got a sunburn".


I suddenly remember how ironically cold, how awfully uncomfortable, and hot to the touch painful it is to both shower and sleep when my skin has taken on the same texture as leather and turned the same color as my un natural hair.

Just an hour, if that, of sitting out in the sunshine watching the kids play, not thinking about spf until I could actually smell the smoke raise off of my dehydrated arms, did I think about putting on lotion.

Shame on me.

I'll be off soaking in a bath tub full of Banana Boat aloe vera, if you need me...

I'm pretty sure sunburn has to be one of the most painful things to endure. I HATE it!

Oh you poor, poor thing. You better take a bath in aloe.

Feel better. I know you are miserable.

Oh, girl, that's awful! How on earth did you burn so easily.... I thought *I* was bad in the easily-burning department.
Hope that aloe works its wonder!

Seriously WOMAN you are pregnant your skin is already more sensitive. SUNSCREEN (yes I am yelling at you).

OUCH! I get sunburned all the time. Actually, I got a little burn today while sitting on the patio of a Tex Mex restaurant eating lunch. Blisters are the worst. And the itching stage SUCKS.

Rachel Elizabeth March 12, 2010 at 11:14 AM  

Ouch! I hope it starts to fade soon.

Betsy March 12, 2010 at 2:18 PM
