That is all i can say. I have a sunburn, chest, arms, back of arms and upper back(that parts not to bad). I took pics but they don't look as bad as it does when I look in the mirror.

Heat is radiating off of me. I have invested in aleo vera gels and one with lidocaine. dug out the silky jamie shirt and will take something before I go to bed. but the garage sale was a success. Got rid of aa bunch of stuff and had enough to pay for dinner out and ice cream from Cold Stone.

Your Power Element is Wood

Your power colors: green and brown

Your energy: generative

Your season: spring

Like a tree, you are always growing and changing.
And while your life is dynamic, you are firmly grounded.
You have high morals and great confidence in yourself and others.
You have a wide set of interests, and you make for intersting company.

Games I play and things I do

To answer comment left I currently play Guild Wars all 3 campaigns and eagerly awaiting the expansion pack at the end of the summer GW:EN. I also play Battlefield 2, Day of Defeat 1.6 and Source.

I also read, my knitting is at the computer beside me for long screen loads and map changes. I chase my 2 year old around and yell at my teenagers. When I am not pushing the cats and dogs out of my path.

All this I do after working full time as a Clinical Office Manager for a Emergency Physicians group.

And yet I have managed to make 4 pairs of socks this year 3/4 of a sweater and half of a lace pattern (easy) scarf.

Yeah I dont get enough sleep by a long shot.

Well enough rambling about me. Off to the sand box with Joey and do some sorting for the Garage sale this weekend.

Happy Trails to you....
