Oh, Kelly, Yes I did notice you were away for a bit, so are a few others (hope they are doing alright!). I was thinking about you yesterday as a matter of fact, I guess your ears were burning - aside from the sunburn.
I have that Irish skin going on here, too. From a family of redheads, no less. I try very hard to remember sunscreen, but alas, my rememberer is broken. I had some horrific burns as a child, a teen, young adult, etc. One thing my mother use to do is blot my burn w/ a freshly brewed tea bag. The tanic acid is supposed to help. She was always making fresh Iced Tea, so we always had 'fresh' boiled bags to use on my body. Now I make sure I use Noxzema. My younger son burns On Purpose then says MOM, HELP! I have to slather the Noxzema on his back. It helps to moisturize burning, painful flesh. I hope something will help you. Pls be careful next time, I worry about the permanent damage to you. I'm sorry, that is just the Mom in me coming out.
My father's mother was called MIMI, and my children called their pat G'ma MIMI. I love that name, always makes me smile.
Babysitting, Bless your heart - you are a strong woman. My money is on you, hope it stays fun for you and the girls. Hope you have a great summer, KIT when you can.
God bless. Alice.
Hi, Stranger! I did wonder where you were off too. I thought you were running around having a great time with some new guy.
Casey, that happened to me one summer. I was so blistered and really couldn't stand even clothing touching my skin. But, I had to wear something! I kept Solarcaine on me and that helped a lot. You do need to stay completely out of the sun until it heal...probably a week or so. I'm sorry that that happened to you, too.
You definitely are being taken advantaged of. My daughter earned that much when she was a teenager 20 years ago and she didn't have to buy gas because she wasn't even old enough to drive yet! Can you ask for more money now...especially because you have to spend so much on gas? If not, don't take them anyplace. If you have to go to their house, have your sister pick you up, if she won't give you more for gasoline. That's not going to get any cheaper any time soon and could be a whole lot more expensive in weeks to come. I know I'd talk to her if I were you. She'd NEVER find anyone to watch the girls for that price!
I hope you feel better soon.
