[It's really been a gin + tonic kind of week. There's been lots of stress between family and laundry drama]
[And let the blood donation begin! My hemoglobin was good (13.8 and the lowest is 12 something). I got past the pricked finger and everything. My nerves had sort of subsided, and I was ready!]
[And then this happened. I was crushed. Apparently even if you just fly into the Cancun airport on this trip, you're a malaria risk for an entire year! A whole year?! I was so incredibly sad.]
[Except I didn't get to make a difference...]
[Drinking a brew for good karma in honor of Justyn's good news! Ps. This girl has been helping to keep me sane in the drama of the last couple weeks. So happy to have her around!]
[Even though the chickens have been little bitches this week adding to my drama, we got pink eggs! Easter eggs!]
[This little baby misses his dad so much when he's gone. He's constantly cuddling when D comes back in town!]
[Pretty thrilled with my runs these days even though my calf is still bothering me. Only 14 seconds slower than race pace & massive hills we didn't walk on!]
Even though I wasn't able to donate blood in February (which means I need to get my new tattoo asap so I can donate as early as possible in 2014), I did donate something! LensCrafters will take your old glasses donations for their OneSight program. It's a cool program, and it's as easy as dropping your glasses off in a store. It feels good to know that at least I gave something back...even if it wasn't blood.
