The word Owwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, was specifically invented for me.
I am one step away from being a char coaled, deep fried, pickled white girl. Seriously.

What made me decide that I was actually going to tan on my first day out in the real spring sun, on an island, in Florida?

I have NO clue.

But I am seriously hurtin' here people.

All pain aside for the moment, our trip to Tampa was nice. It was bitterly cold by FL standards when we got there on Wednesday, and warmer (though not by much) when we ventured out to Caledesi Island on Thursday. I have to say, to have been rated the #1 beach in America at some point by some person, I was not impressed. Maybe I was expected too much? I don't know. It was nice to try something different, but we could have had the same experience by just going to some local public access beach and saving ourselves the wait time and ferry fees. None the less, America's #1 beach scorched my ass and I would pay millions for a suit made completely of Aloe for the next week or so. Ouch.

Thursday night we went to the hockey game, a fun thing to do now and then. It gave me a birds eye view of where I will take daughter to see the Jonas Brothers later this year, and scope out hotels too. I had already reserved one, but found one even closer. The hockey game was fun, loud, and especially cold for someone whose skin temperature has to be at least 115 about now. ;) Yes, I'm whining. I blame myself though..

Mother in law will be here tomorrow to kick off round two of sons birthday festivities. I'm just hoping his Blues Clues decorations get here in time, or else they will be dealing with one red woman (figuratively and literally speaking!) HA!

I know this sounds really, really gross. But run yourself a cool bath, and pour in some vinegar. Gently sponge it over yourself. I promise you will feel much, much better. It takes the sting out. I know. From experience. The white might stink less. Good luck!

Owwwiieee! I've been in your shoes and I know it's not fun at all.

Sorry your got scorched. I remember the time I burnt my stomach so badly, it blistered and my skin peeled off in ONE. BIG. STOMACH-SIZED. STRAND.

So gross.

Hope you're feeling better!
