I donated blood this afternoon. I try to do this near the holidays as well as a few other times a year. This is my first sucessfull attempt (fail the iron test a lot) since my little TIA. It felt good to be able to do this again. I did have a very grumpy man doing the withdrawl. I could actually feel myself getting agitated just because of his attitude. Thankfully I was able to get out of there before he changed my attitude.
I have my last afternoon of teaching til the new year starting any minute now. It'll be a long afternoon/evening, but I'm excited about it as well. The kids are just so hyper at this time of year its hard to get them to focus on piano for a half hour.
My nephew, DH and I made a snowman last night. It really was terrible snowman snow, but we improvised with a shovel and made a pile and then tried to make it look close to a snowman. He's a bit pitiful. I might post a pic of him tomorrow.


  1. I thank you for being a blood donor. My mother and I share a blood disease that lowers platelets and makes us susceptible to things like leukemia which my Mom has now. The only thing keeping her alive are blood transfusions every month.
    Bless you.

  2. The last 2 times I went to donate blood I failed the iron test. Made me sad. I try to donate too as often as possible. I applaud you for doing it! If only more people followed in our footsteps.

    Oh and about the kids this time of year... I work in an elementary school. I know EXACTLY what you mean!
