Sunscreen time, that is. It's funny, no matter where I have lived (and remember, I lived a LOOOOONG time in Austin, TX before I became a wanderer), my family has always gotten sunburned in April. Soccer games, soccer practice, playing at the park, etc. It just doesn't seem natural to remember sunscreen before summer! So, Chase and I are nursing sunburns today because he had goalie and soccer practice yesterday, so we were out at the fields for nearly 3 hours. EEEK! Sunscreen is now on my grocery list, so we are safe tomorrow night...provided I remember to apply it, that is.
Some friends and I were discussing how times have changed. I remember sunbathing with baby oil, for heaven's sake! You could almost hear the sizzle...I will be the first to admit that I love a sun-kissed complexion. LOVE how much better I look when my skin is brown and my hair is sunbleached blonde. It's just sad that I can't do that anymore (and really, never should have done it in the first place). I'll have to resort to the spray-on tan and $100 highlights, I fear.
Colorado is known for having 300 days of sunshine every year. I'm thinking Nevada may have 364. (I'll give one good, cloudy day per year for good measure.) When I move into my house with the pool (refer to earlier posts), it's gonna be tough not to do some serious tanning! Calm down, mom, I'm smarter than that NOW!
