I'm Home now!

Had a great trip but last full day there ended up with a severe sunburned legs. It's been 2 days and still can't hardly move them but it gets a little better each day. the first night I couldn't sleep at all. I pulled a chair up to the shower and set the water on not cold but almost and stuck my legs in to help with the pain. My knees and toes all turned black. Scared me half to death! I almost went down to the emergency room but knew if I did my DH would get in trouble. duh... I have experience with that same AF Base emergency room and sun burns! Even after 35 years I'm not stupid enough to go to them! Last night in Pine Bluff Arkansas I took a wonderful vinegar bath until to much water leaked out of the tub. My Momma always swore by vinegar baths for sun burns and it stung real bad for the first few seconds than the pain quit and I had a lovely nights sleep. they hurt again today but I've been cramped up in the truck all day so will try another vinegar bath tonight and maybe be back to new tomorrow.

My daughter had the best time Saturday collecting shells and sand dollars. she got a whole shoe box full of them! I got 2 miles down the beach before I realized I had forgotten to put sunscreen and put my sweater on and had my big floppy hat but nothing to cover my legs with. Oh well, like I said we had fun even if I was stupid! We had a great time the day before going on our cruise and seeing all the dolphins.

Great to be back home even if I am freezing again and the only green is the grass! Suppose to be in the low 80's toward the end of the week so maybe we can finally turn off the pellet stove!

    It is nice when you make it home. We don't take as many trips as we use to, but when we do it's so nice to make it back home. Glad to hear that you made it safely, sun burned and all.

    There is nothing better than a vinegar bath for a sunburn, people think I am crazy when I tell them to try it. Oh well their loss. Hope you are feeling better. Such wonderful memories you and your family have of your vacation! Glad you made it home safely.
