The Lecture

In the last 12 years I have spent (and my parents have spent) thousands of dollars trying to rid my face of its acne. Only in the last six months has it cleared up and I think it changed because I got older and my hormones changed. With my acne clearing up, I discovered I have a whole lot of sun damage on my face. Yesterday I met with a plastic surgeon to discuss some option to get rid of the sun damage. Boy did I ever get a lecture! It came down to this...I have to wear at least SPF 30 sunscreen everyday on my face. Period! So for all you sun babies out there, wear your sunscreen!

I am going to New Hampshire this weekend to compete in the Reach the Beach Relay. It's a 200+ mile relay and we have a team of 12 people doing it. Unfortunately yesterday we found out that one of our people cannot go. We're two days away from leaving and we're scrambling to find somebody. I'm hoping we do because some people would have to run really long distances to make up for it. I might volunteer to take an extra leg since I'm the only one in the group training for a marathon.

As I've said before, I work for a shoe company and I shopped our store yesterday. When I was out in Portland a couple years ago I bought a pair of Columbia shoes that were great. They were waterproof and could be worn in the rain, in the snowy winters, and as work boots. But those shoes have finally worn out. Yesterday I tried on a pair of Merrells that were made with Gore Tex. They were the most comfortable shoes I've ever tired on. I bought them to replace my Columbias. And with my discount, it was quite a bargain.

See ya later kiddies!!

I love merrells. Those were the brand of the sandal I paid to have fixed when the strap broke

A picture of what? My skin (good grief) or my shoes?

Picture this...I'm a spitting image of Jodie Foster but with dark bloches on my left cheek and upper lip. Flattering huh?
