I'm waddling like a duck...

...and - No - I'm not pregnant!

I took the kids to the beach Mon-Thurs this week.  Somehow - despite my normally anal use of sunscreen - I forgot to slather it on the backs of my knees before spending several hours standing in the water watching the kids boogie-board.

The backs of my knees are so BADLY burnt that I went to the doctor last night because I can't bend them....not to mention that they are an unnatural-shade of blood-red.  :-S  Doc said they are bad...but 'good news - they don't qualify as 2nd degree burns'.  I'm on a high-dose of steroids for a week to bring down the inflammation - and he gave me a shot of steroids last night.

I'm hoping to not be waddling in a few days.  But - until then....OUCHY!!!!!!!!!!!!
