Disney Red ankle rash

After our last trip to Disney this week, just 2 days to Magic Kingdom and Epcot, I got the same red rash around my ankles I always get. This time I goggled Red ankle rash and got a message board with one common theme, we had all been to Disney. Some of these people had even gone to the first aid station at Magic Kingdom because of the pain/swelling. Seems Disney medics see this alot due to the heat/humidity of Orlando, because you are walking on asphalt all day and the sun reflects on the asphalt it hits your ankles.....think about it especially if you wear the ankle socks or capris.....the rash never goes below or above whats covered in fabric. 

Some suggestions were Gold Bond powder or Eucerien lotion to prevent this. I'm gonna try longer socks or extra sunscreen next time and see if it works. Hope this helps someone else out, I figured with the walking 7+ miles on asphalt I was just breaking capillaries in my ankle.

Love and Light,

    No, Doing Basic Law Enforcement Training PT just about killed me...LOL...I can imagine what military training would do. I think its great, I have known quite a few and they were quite happy.
  2. What is your idea of a perfect Sunday afternoon? submitted by A Few of My Favorite Things
    Beach combing followed by a early dinner
  3. What do you usually do for the 4th of July holiday? submitted by Anchor’s Away We usually go see the Fireworks but the 2 year old has started freaking out over them so I think we will skip them this year. Our post is doing a day full of activities but it gets way to crowded so maybe the beach?
  4. If they could make an Olympic event JUST for you that you know you’d medal in, what would it be? submitted by Pants are Confusing Purging, I can not stand clutter and with 3 kids there is always too much stuff........I just start tossing stuff in bags to trash or donate.
  5. What have you been doing to get yourself bathing suit ready for the summer? submitted by Not Just an Army Wife Stopped caring what others think....with 3 kids who want to be in the water I had to get over my feelings and just take the bull by the horns .....but we did join the YMCA so hopefully something soon.

MilSpouse Friday Fill-in #45

  1. Underwear Parties, how old is too old? < When you are uncomfortable with it>
  2. What was your favorite class in high school?< English, I loved reading and writing.>
  3. Have you ever convinced packers/movers to pack something they aren't supposed to for a PCS? < No, but they have, money, opened food, dirty dishes, broiler pans, shower heads....>
  4. Blogging plays a growing roll in the media. If you were asked to embed as a blogger with a deployed military unit, would you go? What do you think your blog would be like? < No, I would not want to put a unit on the spot of feeling like they had to watch out for me. Their job is dangerous enough without having to worry about a untrained person with them.>
  5. Do you think kids should attend year-round school?< Yes, I like the longer breaks at different times during the year instead of 2 months during the summer and my 2 get bored very easily.>

I found this at Home Goods this past weekend and I LOVE IT !! I have always loved the poster that says Keep Calm and Carry On but that is not really me but this ....this is me.
I also found 4 of these, they just say spring to me.

Beautiful weather in GA for the past 5 days and supposedly we get 4 more before the possible chance of rain. Everyone got a 4 day weekend here so Brian will be removing all the sod from around the playground, plastic sheeting it and filling it with Cypress Mulch....the yard slopes down so that area stays a wet muddy mess so hopefully this does away with all that. Found out this week we are getting a pool in our subdivision not a splash park ......I really have to wonder if these people know what they are doing????

Hopefully the great weather sticks around for awhile.

The new Norm

We seem to be back to a normal routine around here, somewhat. Last week we lost Brian's Grandmother Gena. He was able to fly out Saturday Morning and come back Tuesday. We are almost done with Kael's Basketball.....2 games next week and then the CHAMPIONSHIP the week after. Maddie is on week 3 of PT and now we do alot of core exercises......donkey kicks, crunches and reverse crunches. Also trying to make her ride her bike for longer periods at a time....trying to exhaust her muscles is how they described what she needs. They just celebrated the 100th day of school and the end of the second semester.

Sage is still on soy and no major problems. She is a dancing Queen and singing....she kills me. The dog we got in Dec, Cannon ( yeah I forgot to mention him for 2 months now) is as tall as Sage now and almost 20lbs so them playing is hilarious.

I need to start looking into which bowling alley on post to have Maddie's 6th Birthday ( I so wanted her to have a roller skating party but no luck ). We have to put Pavers under the fence in the back yard since Cannon is a digger .......ugh, but it is suppose to be nice this weekend so maybe it will get done. Hope everyone has a great weekend ......and you up North, I hope you thaw out soon !!!!
