Cuts Like A Knife

First, a shout out to Donna.  Donna's dear sister has crossed over to the Other Side, after a battle with Cancer.

Please go visit Donna at her journal This and that, and hockey! and give some support in her time of grief. 

              

Tomorrow, our schools in NJ are closed for the teachers convention.  So, tonight, the kids, they party!  lol

The boys had Scouts, and then Russ came back for a sleepover.  They have basically been playing Halo 3 most of the night, with pauses for a frozen pizza and a drink.  LOL

I think they are now going to watch something on tv, Letterman I think.  I remember that being a huge deal when I was kid, of course, it was Johnny Carson, I couldn't wait to sneak a peek at! 

The kids are so happy to have off for a few days!  This month goes by very fast, next week is full, but then it's Thanksgiving week, and more time off!

My arms are beautiful shades of purple, red, pink and greenish yellow from the blood draws.  If I was a normal person, with bad veins, like I used to be years ago, I would have been much more demanding about how they draw my blood.

However, now, after years of monthly blood draws, and IV's for rheumatology meds, I know that my veins are scarce and very problematic.  And, getting upset with the tech, won't do any good. 

That is why I rarely have blood done anywhere but at the specialists I go to, but sometimes, I have to just suck it up!  lol

I hope everyone has a good night, and I will catch up with you all tomorrow!

be well,
Dawn

Nurses always have problems drawing my blood.  It seems I don't have any veins, figure that.  Enjoy your Thursday.

I am so sad for Donna and her family.  They seem all so close.  
I have lousy veins which I passed right on to my sweet girls.  I'm a Nazi about how people draw from me. :p

I can't stop thinking about Donna and what she is going through at this time. Sounds like you have a full house with lots of energy is excess (winks). Sorry to hear your arms are bruised like that from that woman's carelessness. (Hugs) Indigo
