I Felt Almost Demure

Here is a photo of The Golden Gate Bridge that we took on our road trip two years ago. I would love the promise of a great vacation right now.

Oh, thank god for the weekend. Today was kind of a weird day. The guy who was going to put my counters in, got back to me while I was at work. He apologized for how long it took him and said he was insanely busy and didn't know if he'd get to doing them next week, or next month. He also told me he was worried that I'd be disappointed in him. I told him not to worry. That I had a couple of other options, but I would see if I could get someone else who could do it sooner. Then one of the women I worked with said that her husband might be able to just come over and do it for free. She was going to check with him and get back to me.

After work I went to give plasma and got another hematoma. This time, the blood stopped coming out, so they caught it right away and it was a million times better...That was, until they were starting to put fluids back in me and I was so dehydrated that I almost passed out. They brought the nurse out and she checked my vitals and my pulse was under 40. Hmmm. I drank water at the same time they pumped me full of saline solution and I was much better in 10 minutes, but that was more than enough drama for one evening.

Okay. And now it's the weekend. As usual, there is a ton going on. Originally, I planned to go to this burlesque show tomorrow night. A lot of my friends from all different groups are all going to be there, and I thought it would be a great opportunity to see many different people at once. Then the woman who said her husband would put in my counters, said he might come over tomorrow night. I'm not sure if that would be just for a minute, to check things out, or if she meant that he'd actually put them in then. If that's the case, I'm sure I'll just stay home tomorrow night. I guess we'll see.

Saturday will be a day that I try to get as much done as possible. I have tons of paperwork and bills to pay and a new tax form to fill out to try to get my first time home buyer credit, on top of a bunch of projects.

Sunday is Coadster's very last show choir performance. She is also singing a song for the special acts portion of it. My sister and her family and my aunt, as well as a few of my friends are all going, so it should be a lot of fun.

...And now it's your turn. Will you be recovering from an old-fashioned fainting spell this weekend, or watching some old-fashioned, fun and raunchy burlesque acts?

Raunchy Burlesque? Enticing, but alas, no.
Busy weekend getting ready to go cruising the Caribbean with friends the following weekend.

Hope this guy shows up and puts in the counter's for you.. No raunchy burlesque for me and I will probably faint over the pile of laundry building up..
props to Coadster.. Have fun with your family and friends..!

Ah, you make such a case for plasma donation... Hope your counters get put in... It will make a huge difference.

I hope the guy can do a good job on your counters for you.

We will be just hanging out this weekend, after spending what little cash we had on skiing!

I will be out shopping with my mom tomorrow - we're celebrating her birthday (which was yesterday), during the weekend. Lunch and shopping. I'm looking forward to it!

I hope you are getting a great deal of money for those plasma donations!

I also hope you do get your counters put in, by someone...anyone. And best of luck to Coadster on her farewell to high school musicals performance.

Here's to a quick plasma-donation recovery, new counters, and a burlesque show! Me? Well, I'm going to see "The Puppetry of the Penis" in West Hollywood. Have you ever heard of it? I'm scared, but I was convinced by a friend. The horror! :)

Great date! Old movies. Mexican food. Margaritas. Hasn't ended yet. Ha!

Hey... sorry about your arm and all the troubles! You are a real trooper to do this!

Good luck to Coadster!
