Blood Donation day!
Wednesday, January 16, 2013
Well, today is the blood donor clinic in my town. I've missed the past two that I was eligible for since I was out of town and didn't get home in time. So I definitely need to go today.
Unfortunately this means no strenuous activity for 6-8 hours afterwards, so my workouts will be toned down today. I'm going to do some dumbbell exercises here at home before I go donate, and tonight is one of my volleyball nights. Luckily its not my league night, its just the drop in, casual, no keeping score or set teams night, so I can still go, and just kind of put in half the energy I usually do.
Yesterday was a pretty good day. My grandma called and told me there was an exotic animal show at her retirement home (just around the corner for my house) and asked if I wanted to bring Ocean over. They had a parrot that talked and sang Old McDonald Had a farm, two baby Chinchillas, two ferrets, a bunny, two snakes, an oppossum, and a hedgehog. The two ladies running the show walked around with the animals and let everyone pet them. They asked if anyone wanted to hold one of the ferrets while they showed off the other animals, and I wanted to badly, but I waited a second, and when no one else volunteered, I did. So I got to hold the ferret for like 10 minutes and little Pancake became my little buddy. Ocean loved seeing and touching all the animals, and he was so happy that Pancake got to sit with us for so long.
After London got home from school, her and Ocean had their afterschool activities at the YMCA, so I got my exercise in upstairs in the work out room while they did their thing.
