Why Does A Sunburn Hurt So Much?

As the title of this post suggests, I am still feeling the effects of the sun on my shoulders. I really don't understand why the sun has to hurt so much! When I was a child I always drew the sun as a smiling circle in the sky with sunglasses, but I am beginning to think that the smile was actually a smirk. Or a sinister smile.
A few photos of the garage that we started building at my parents house last week. Three walls framed, sheathed and raised. The back wall was fully sheathed when we finished but for what ever reason I chose not to take any more pictures. Looks pretty good doesn't it? I know my dad is super excited about getting work done on it and Aren is planning to drive back down sometime soon to do the wiring.

I don't know how many of you have played a game called Settlers of Cattan (awesome game!), but we made an uber-game while out at my parents. Aren and I bought a second Settlers game as well as the Seafarers expansion pack and then after putting all three sets together we built this gi-normous board. We ended up playing until at least 3 in the morning with my brother. Awesome! This will certainly make family game time more interesting (also more time consuming).

This SUPER-AMAZING dryer chair was recovered from the dump (not even dirty - just dropped off by a guy) and is in near perfect condition.The vinyl is clean and there is only one small tear on the back side of the contraption. The hair dryer works perfect and there is even an ashtray in the arm! Ahh the good old days when you could smoke while getting your hair blown dry at the salon.
My mum will probably use it in one of her plays and if not I may have to bring it back to my house. I am pretty sure Aren would have a fit about that since he already thinks I have enough chairs (which I probably do...) kicking around the house. I don't have any that dry my hair though.....

So you can all feel sorry for me:

The red spots on my back are black fly bites. Oh and did I mention I got hives while unloading the grass clippings/leaves/twigs at the dump? Yeppers, hives, black fly bites and a sunburn. All part of the adventure that is summer.
Anyways, I apologize for the lack of project oriented posting going on the past couple of days. I am packing right now and trying to make sure I don't forget anything this time.
I *promise* to post a project tomorrow!
Ciao for now and remember to keep your screen doors closed at night.
