Now, I have followed the regime a few times. The first time I did, I definitely noticed that the pain was gone. I didn't really see any other effects, but I also did not stick with it for much longer than a week at a time. I am inherently lazy by nature, and I know this. So a regime that asks me to wash my face, then spray with 2.5 water, then put a cloth soaked in 11.5 on my face for 15 minutes, and then spray with 5.5 water.... Well, it gets a bit much. Particularly that 15 minute part. And I'd love a washcloth with mouth and nose holes so I didn't feel like I was suffocating. But I haven't one and after a few days I get lazy and irked and I stop.
But tonight, I was thinking of how much I am really tired of my face looking and feeling this way. And if I have something that can help, well, then, I should stop complaining and do what I can, right? No matter how intricate the regime. So, I decided to try again--with more determination and all. Use that self-discipline that my father talks of me having. I began right away, and I hope to keep up with it.
Today's Something New: Today I learned (from the book I've been listening to) that Emma Smith's second husband brought two daughters into the marriage. One of them was named Zerelda. Not a name I had ever heard before. And then this evening I was reading up a bit on Jesse James. Turns out his mother was named Zerelda. What are the odds?! Learned that Jesse James actually got married. To his cousin. He even has living posterity! Interesting. Not that I like to follow outlaws' histories and such, but I realized for a famous outlaw I knew next to nothing about him.
