Tomato Face

By nature I have a rather round face. Even when I was at my skinny-minniest my face was still more "full moon" than "vapid model". Some screw up in the genetic code.

Yesterday I took my son and younger daughter to the park. It was an absolutely gorgeous day here and I thought I might kill someone if I spent it cooped up in the house. To the park we went. Without sunscreen. Somehow my precious children managed to get away undamaged by their mother's stupidity. Mom did not get off so lucky. I am now a big ole tomato face. Today will be a makeup day for sure.

This is one of those weeks that I hate. The kind where you have something almost every night. It's going to be one big run fest all week long. I'm tired already.

I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead of you full of lots of downtime and with no need to wear any makeup. Except you men. Maybe you guys should wear makeup for a week. See what a bitch it is to get ready every day.

Don't mind me. I haven't had my coffee yet. And I'm starving. Really you're getting off lucky.

    I have come to the determination that when I go without makeup it scares little children.

    Have a good day Tomato Face!!!

    I'm so Irish, walking to the mailbox and back can get me into trouble. Makeup is for the dogs......actually, maybe the dogs should wear makeup. Oh never mind, I forgot where I'm going with this.

    I am so jealous of your warm weather! We are getting a huge winter stom in upstate NY. Yuck! I would rather have a tomato face.

    I feel lucky already.

    If I was female, I'd go without makeup. I mean seriously, all that time and work just to wash it off a few hours later?

    Makes no sense.

    Slow down when you can...

    My brother dated a girl for a while what everyone, including me, called "Moon Face". He eventually had to drop her...couldn't take the pressure!

    that is some funny shit. I burn my face all the time, but I blister my nose and chin, then I have big old scabs.

    I had a week like that last week. I'm actually able to breath this week.

    I feel for you and your sunburn. I was recently in Aruba and burnt my eyelids and eyeballs. I looked like one puffy eyed tourist! Make up somehow just doesn't do it for me on those days.
    Enjoy running like a chicken with your head cut off, and if none of the plans are for merely the sake of you, aka. the kids, put a TAXI sign on top of the car and hang on!

    Lord. One time in high school, we went snow skiing, and I really burned my face BAD. It was like leather. Anyway, since that time, it's always the first thing of mine to burn, and like you, I don't even think about it until after it's too late.

    I feel your pain, girl :-) brother, who just got married, lives in Vail. Isn't he a brat?

    Sunscreen is my best friend!!
    I have the complexion of Casper and I live in FL ... so yeah, sunscreen is a daily thing for me.
    I'm just happy that so many nicer lotions already have sunscreen in them ... I got tired of smelling like a Pina Colada everyday! lol

    MM. Pina Coladas.

    I'm half Greek and half Irish/English. It's really an odd combo. I burn a nasty burn, but it turns into a kick-ass tan later on.

    I definitely feel your pain & I've definitely been there. Take it easy, gal!

    Back in the Stone Age when I was a Cub Scout den mother we were having a newspaper drive. Nobody else volunteered to stand by the truck all day and by the end of said day I had the worse sunburn of my life. All for a good cause I told myself :)
