Anne-Marie (A-M) likes donating blood. She says to drink lots of water beforehand and that, really, it's not so bad. Then she laughs and says that they give juice and cookies afterwards. I don't want a cookie! As she scheduled our appointments on the phone she just looked at me with a big grin. I think she's enjoying this!
At supper this evening, I was laughing (with a hint of dread), "I'm going to conquer this fear! I will do this!" Grandpa replied, "Your blood ought to be really healthy." Well, whatever the case it's a good thing to donate blood, and additionally it's good to not be afraid of things. SO I WILL DO THIS!
I might do a quick blogpost in the morning, but we'll leave pretty early. Elizabeth, A-M, and I will stay the night at our brother's family's place and the next day...hurrah! We're going skiing (so don't expect a blog post on Thursday)! I haven't gone skiing in years! And I'm soooooo excited! Last time I went skiing I cracked my skull four inches (my family laughs that I haven't been the same since!), ripped tissue severely in my arm, and other "minor" things. It was quite a bad accident (my first ambulance trip...I always wanted to do that!), but God had his angels around me (my family ALSO says that I must have a lot of guardian angels for all I do). Putting that aside, I can't WAIT to get up on skiis again. Hopefully I won't kill myself. We're going, just us siblings (well, most of us...like I said, I have a big family) and my Mom will come to look after my baby niece at the lodge. So it should be FUN, FUN, FUN!
Oh dear! I just remembered the blood donating!
