No more promises...

Truth of the matter, I started the year with an unexpected project that took a whole lot of my spare time. Good news...I'M SO DONE WITH THAT PROJECT. Bad news...I wasn't able to spend the time I really wanted on my photography blog. I'm still working on it. There's lots of things I'm researching cause I want to get it just right. My spare time is usually after the kids are in bed and well, by that time my eyes are crossed due to the overwhelming days a mom goes thru and, it's hard reading cross eyed. Have you ever tried? Not cute. So anywho, I'm back on track with that but...I'm not promising anymore dates. Just stay tuned.

Onto real life, guess what happened to me today? Our church had a health fair and there was a blood mobile. I had already planned on giving blood so I was siked. I ate some food, chatted a little before donating, then gave my blood. Well, Margie has a small history of fainting when it comes to giving blood but, the last 2 times she gave blood, she was good (within 4 months both times). So yes, after giving blood, my happy self got off the chair-bed thingy majiggy, worked her way to the front of the bus for her free chips and drink. I was talking with some friends when I started feeling a little light headed. I tried to ignore it. I tried to keep talking but, a friend of ours walked into the blood mobile thingy majiggy with an UBER nasty scrape on his arm (caused by a doom buggy accident mind you). Ok...it wasn't a little scratch, it was really bad. FYI, Margie doesn't do to well with nasty, funky, goowy, scrapes, cuts, or anything in between. Margie was going down! I so felt it. I tried to make my way past him ASAP. I was trying to make it to my husband, which was outside the blood mobile thingy majiggy, about 15 yards away. I made it...but not much further than that. He took me inside the church, layed me on some chairs, raised my legs, and fanned me for a good 10 minutes. I hate it when that happens! My macho is so good to me though.( I love you babe! You're a hot paramedic! You're family on the other hand is not so cute)! His cousin (you know who you are!) came in just to laugh in my face. I tell you...no respect! And his wife...just fueled the flames! "Did you see his bone sticking out Margie" Not a cute scene!! (There were no bones sticking out)!

All in all it was fun, not the passing out part, the bonding part. We have a great group of fun people at our church (mostly family, somehow we're all related). At any rate, shout out to all those who donated blood. I heard there were 21 donors which is very good according to the organizer dude. If you donated blood today...leave a comment!

(No pics today, who the heck wants to see Margie passed out or oowy goowy scraped arms? Gross!

I donated blood too...it was actually not bad at all...other than 'Victor' not finding my vein but poking me with the big needle and having to find my vein after. He's lucky I didn't punch him in the face! LOL...anyway, you know I love you, girl...that has happened to me before which is why I can laugh about it...lol

Poor thing... I totally understand and don't particularly like seeing open wounds. Don't blame you in the least bit. Thank goodness you made it to your hubby in time because you could have hurt yourself too... HUGZ

I bet you can't count with one hand how many times you have passed out. I think it's a record! Uh Oh, there goes Margie again! Hee hee
