Why is it Sunday already? I'd really like to find the person who instituted 5 day workweeks and 2 day weekends and ask them what in the world they were thinking I spent most of yesterday sitting out by my moms pool and found that sunblock and I don't really get along. I'm closer to translucent than tan 95% of the year so I covered myself in sunblock. That's the smart thing to do, right? So how come the areas where I only applied sunblock once are still pale and the areas where I kept reapplying it are pretty red? It makes absolutely no sense. But my redness allows me to provide you with a random tip I may not have otherwise shared:
Spray yourself with white vinegar to pull the sting out of a sunburn.
There's also nothing like finding out when your sunburn subsides that you were a large buffet table for mosquitoes and now have bites just about everywhere. I think next time I go to my mom's I'll have a combination of bug spray and sunblock on!

I've decided not to include Friday on the menu anymore because we typically just end up grabbing something while out or eating some form of leftovers. This week will be different though, because we're going to the beach! I'm rather excited. Tom and I both managed to get off on Friday and that morning we'll head on downey o'shun, hun! Translated out of Baltimorese: down the ocean, hon!
