Looking for Good Acne Resources

It seems that our family is plagued with acne.  I don’t know if it is genetic, our skin, or just how we take care of ourselves, but it seems that our children and our nieces and nephews have all suffered from acne at one point.  It has not been a very good experience for any of the kids, but it has been a great learning opportunity for us.

One of the things that we have found is that there are a number of great resources online that provide information on how to deal with acne.  One of the examples would be as well as a few other sites I can't quite think of right now. With all the access to information we enjoy, I wonder how our parents dealt with acne - there must have been a lot of disinformation back then.

Shopping with my Sister-In-Law

There isn’t a lot that my sister-in-law and I have in common, but the one thing that we do is shopping.  So, I make the effort to take her with me once in awhile to try and kindle a bond between us, and so far that has been working.

But today was a little different since she phoned me to see if I wanted to go help her pick out some discount scrubs from a shop downtown.  I couldn’t say no, because it was shopping and we had a glorious time.

Picking up Something for Mom

There isn’t a lot that my mother needs, but when she does request something, I do listen.  So, when she mentioned that she wanted some Adirondack chairs for her birthday, I listened.

In fact, we are just heading over there after my trip to the store to get her gift – I hope she loves them!

Time to Mow the Lawn

Even though some people don’t like going outside to mow their lawn, I enjoy it.  Okay, it wasn’t always the case, but since we started buying honda mowers, my attitude has changed.

There is nothing like going outside to mow the lawn and knowing that your mower will work.  My last one was not like that, but my current one has been reliable for the past couple of years.

Besides, I need a break from the house once in awhile – it is nice to breathe in some fresh air.

Looking for an Anniversary Gift

Even though I thought my shopping was done for the day, I realized that I needed to get something for my best friend Bruce.  You see, him and his wife are celebrating their tenth anniversary, so I thought I should get them an anniversary gift for couples.

Thankfully, I have some experience with gift shopping, so I figure that it should be an easy trip to the store.  I’m hoping to be inspired while I am there and get them something great – they deserve nothing less.
