It was a good 4th for me. I did not see any fireworks or anything, but I was at a friend's and spent some time in the pool. Now I could not find my sunscreen and figured no more than 2 hours in the pool before the peak sun hours would not be a problem. Well, I was quite wrong!

back



This was by far the worst side of me. Right now, it has ligthed up a bit. Despite its nasty appearance, it is not that painful. It has a slight tingle to it but the majority if the discomfort comes from the dry skin. So today, I am going to get some aloe to put on it.

After getting out of the pool, I just relaxed and had some chow. Took a little nap and then just relaxed in the evening. There was not too much home fireworks being discharged here probably because gas prices have curtailed such purchases. As a result, the kitties were not all nervous and the air did not smell bad from all the fireworks.

When it does start to hurt, I have a friend who SWEARS by unsweetened, condensed milk. I think she adds a few cans to her bathwater. Never tried it myself, I don't do well in direct sun or heat for long periods (I am such a delicate flowah), so I rarely get the opportunity to get burned.

So far, the worst is over. It never did hurt. Rather it just felt like a very mild rope/rug burn. Since I do not take baths, only showers, I doubt the condensed milk would be of any help to me.

I can handle the heat and sunlight quite well. My problem is that I burn so darned easily! When I was in Centralia during May of this year, I got a burn on my neck only that blistered. Yet it did not feel all that bad. Yesterday, I obviously was wearing my bathing suit when I got burnt and as always, my shoulders got bore the brunt of it. Now I also got the patch down my back burnt but I barely notice that. And even so, my other shoulder is not quite as red as the one pictured. I suspect that since I lay on my sides during sleep, that is why the shoulders feel somewhat more aggravated. Simply put, far more of my body got burnt wearing my bathing suit than just my neck burn in Centralia. Yet I guess I am lucky that I have a high tolerance for sunburn pain. As said above, it is the dryness that is the most uncomfortable and as such, aloe is my best friend!

But whatever the case, I still had fun at the pool regardless of my burn or not!
