Hard Things

Life is full of things which are hard or tedious or otherwise unpleasant that need doing anyhow. They help make the world go 'round, they improve skills, and they boost your sense of self-respect. But doing them still kinda sucks. It's all the more difficult to do those things when nobody appreciates it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our accomplishments and pat each other on the back.

What are some of the hard things you've done recently? What are some hard things you haven't gotten to yet, but need to do? Is there anything your online friends could do to make your hard things a little easier?

Almost Sunspotz

A friend tipped me to these stickers that detect UV radiation.  The biggest difference between these and Terramagne Sunspotz is that these don't come in different grades for different skin tones like Sunspotz do.  But these will reset if you put more sunscreen on after the first time they alert, and I don't think Sunspotz do that because those are intended to tell you that you've gotten your safe amount of sun for the day.  The two products detect the same threat but they feed you slightly different information about it.
