Summer Sunburns, Rain, and Funny Stuff.

Little Emily made friends with a turtle at the Memphis Zoo.
For those of you wondering, my back is much better!  The pain has been replaced by an itch that of course cannot be scratched.  The majority of the burn was right in the middle of my back, you know that one place you cannot reach?!  Of course when I enlist one of the kids to aid in scratching they can never seem to hit that one spot that really itches.  My skin is also peeling, so that makes it more itchy and uncomfortable!  Thankfully, though it is healing and I appreciate all of the sweet thoughts and comments during my healing.  I have the greatest friends and family ever!

Meanwhile, summer is rolling along quite nicely.  Since I have moved the office back home, I am spending lots of time with the kiddos.  Some days this is great and some days it makes me want to pull my hair out...and not just the gray hair that it's causing me!  I was told by my 2.5 year old yesterday that I was "annoying her...sewiously"!  The same one who asked me as some thunderstorms rolled through the area if we needed to get our life jackets on.  I wondered if maybe we had prayed a little too hard for rain and perhaps our she was channeled in with ole Noah and he had given her some sort of forewarning about the coming weather!  The rain was much needed and we did have to cancel our plans to go to the water park. But we were thankful for a little drink for our trees who were steadily dropping leaves. Although the yard seemed to grow a foot over night, I am sure it needed it too...even though it just seems to make for more work! Hope your week is progressing nicely. Happy Hump Day everyone!

Glad to hear your back is healing, you won't be doing that again in a hurry will you? I know because I've done it myself. ;)

I, too, am glad to hear that your back is healing-but I feel for you-that itching is NOT fun at all!!!

As for you sewiously annoying Emily-I do NOT know how you keep a straight face. I'm going to be the worst mom ever some day b/c I wont' be able to not laugh at things like that!

Akelamalu, you're right...I won't be doing it again for a while *fingers crossed*

Mags, the itching is more irritating than the burn was. :( The skin sloughing is really nasty too.

Oh, and mostly I do NOT keep a straight face with Emily! Sometimes that is okay, and others it gets me in trouble. While I am trying to discipline her and bust out laughing, it doesn't make for a good outcome. :/

LOL at the lifejackets for the thunderstorm comment! Kids say the most hilarious things - and I'm with you - keeping a straight face is often just not an option!
