Blood Donation

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Well we finished the closet by the front door and it wasn't too bad which is a good thing. We put even more stuff out for free and some of it has been taken and what ever is left over we are going to donate to Goodwill. We also went to the gym yesterday and washed our car :) The boyfriend had his podiatrist appointment yesterday as well and the doctor basically said it's a permanent injury and his ankle is always going to be in pain and difficult to walk on. He said it's the tendons that run along the ankle that is the problem and it will never fully heal and will keep getting reinjured when he takes a wrong step or steps down on it wrong.

I'm off to donate blood with the Red Cross here in a few minutes. The last time they wouldn't let me donate because my blood pressure was elevated so hopefully this time I can donate since I'm B- and it is sort of a rare blood type.

This weekend we're going to keep cleaning and will be working on the kitchen and organizing it better. I can't wait until it's done because the kitchen is a mess and definitely needs a deep cleaning and de-cluttering. I can't believe how much junk/trash there has been so far! Our trash can, organic can, and recycle can are all full and still more waiting to be added once they're empty. I'll be glad once we are 100% done.

    It feel soooo good to declutter an clean!!! I'm sorry about BF ankle. That's terrible!! Is there a brace or something he could at least wear that would minimize the pain? Have a great rest of the week!!!

    I have been cleaning my attic and upstairs closets since 2 of my children have moved out.... it has been hard but must be done.... it has mostly gone to good-will. I use to donate blood but my hemoglobin(iron) is too low. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm going to try to give blood tomorrow. We are having a blood drive at work. I'm B+

    Way to go on that kitchen. I would love to take every thing out of my cupboards put it all in a pile and only put back the things I actually use --- but I talk myself out of it every time I get close to doing it!!!
