December 1, 2009 in true story

Today I am donating blood for the first time. I’m a little nervous, but pretty excited that I get to do this. I’ve been wanting to for a long time, but haven’t been able to.

True story.

I have nine days (after today) separating me and BF! Only nine days! The fact that it’s single digits make me happy.

True story.

The ONLY Cyber Monday deal I found (that was worth it, at least) was the Alice.com gift card I bought. A $50 gift card for only $35! Woo hoo! I justified it by saying it was for groceries and that it was like getting $15 in groceries for free.

True story.

Other than that, I was some kinda major disappointed in the sales. Twenty-percent off is not a cyber Monday sale… that’s a normal, any day sale.

True story.

I am too exhausted to write anymore because I woke up at 3am to go to the gym again today. And I’m starving.

True story.

Good luck giving blood! I do it all the time and I'm fine. Eat a big breakfast and a big lunch!

OMG I cant believe you wake up at 3 am to go to the gym. I have to wake up at 4:30 to go and thats still way too early! I havent been able to get myself up the past two days. LOL

Thats great that your giving blood! I try to donate blood every three months.

I've given blood twice in my life and both times had bad experiences therefore the world must go on with out Lil Woman blood. But good luck to you and I agree I didn't see any Cyber Monday sales that were that good.

Hooray for donating blood! As someone who's usually on the ordering side, those precious pints are used with a lot of thought. Just make sure you drink tons and tons of liquids after you donate. If you experience fatigue afterwards, it's likely due to that.

good luck!

Good luck giving blood today for the first time – I so wish that I could handle that!

I've only given blood once, and it didn't go very well! Hope you have a better experience than I did!

I was supposed to give blood yesterday for the first time. Bf and I were going to go together (he has done it before and was going to sit next to me and sitract me from the giant needle) but when I was at the doctor last week, I happened to mention it and the doctor looked at me like I was nuts and was all 'you can't you have a history of low iron!!!'.

I thought so long as my iron was cool now, I was good to go. Not so.
Good luck!

Hope the giving blood went well. I was nervous when I gave it for the first time a few years ago. Also, I was highly disappointed in cyber Monday. I couldn't find a good deal on a tv!

How did giving blood go? I didn't even look at the Cyber Monday sales. I was so shocked at the 100+ emails I received that I just deleted them without opening. 🙂 XOXO

Yay for 9 days until you seyour BF! I know how that feels; my husband and I lived apart for 5 months in 2004, and I missed him like crazy. Make the most of the time you have together, and don't forget a minute!

And kudos to you for donating blood! I wish I could do it, but it freaks me out too much. But who knows, apparently pregnancy is a time in your life where you just have to grin and bear needles, so perhaps after the birth I wouldn't think twice about it!
