so I goofed up and got a pretty rough sunburn yesterday, whoops.. now I'm sitting in this huge metal building itching all over.... I keep putting lotion on and that helps but ugh I wish this would go away faster!!

anyway,

tonight is belly dance class and I'm super excited because we're getting ready to perform this weekend at first fridays!!

so all day I've been singing and dancing in my head b/c it hurts too much to move my body.... I'm hoping to reserve my dancing energy for tonight's class lol.....

I got a new photog book last night, so I think I'm going to lotion up, stretch out and read for a while.... underneath a great big fan!!

later!!

Try putting some vinegar on.  Use a spray bottle and mix a little V with water.  After an hour or so shower up and get that awful smell off.  If you do this a couple times the pain will go away.  C

PS.  I am sooooo Fair and I have used this many many times.

Vinegar works!  I have suffered thru sun poisoning-and vinegar baths felt sooo good!  I do not burn easily, but when I do I burn pretty bad.  I always tell myself "next time I will make sure to re-apply the sunscreen", but I always get busy and before I know it, OUCH :-( Hope you start to feeling better sooner than later!  Also get yourself some aloe vera gel and stick it in the fridge, this feels good too :-)
