Blood Drive today!

Yep, it's been quite a while since I donated blood, but we finally got all the arrangements made and had a blood drive at work today! So, of course, I had to be sure and donate to get myself back on a regular schedule! It always makes me feel good to do this, knowing there's always a shortage in the blood banks!

So...get out and donate!

I've been tagged! :o)

Here's the rules:

Each player starts with 7 random facts about themselves on their own Blog. People who are tagged need to blog 7 facts about themselves and post the rules as well. At the end of your blog list 7 people you are tagging. Let them know that they are tagged by leaving them a comment. So, it's time for my 7 random facts:

1.) I'm a vacation junkie! I love vacations and wish we could go once a month!!
2.) I think I'm starting to get a little grumpy in my old age. :(
3.) I love playing the lottery! Scratch-offs, pull tabs, Powerball...all of them! Now to just win!
4.) It makes me mad when people leave without saying goodbye.
5.) My lucky/favorite number is 5!
6.) I love *me* time...probably too much!
7.) I have never had a dishwasher!

That's it. Now...I've gotta find 7 more people to about:


Have fun girls!

Has it really been two weeks???

Geesh! I knew we had been busy, but I didn't realize we had been THAT busy! Since the last time I posted, I've been to a scrapbook retreat with my PAWS friends,which was a WONDERFUL weekend. Syd has joined a reading club and a running club, and completed her CPR certification..and also had her first babysitting job! Roger has worked and golfed, took the girls to the zoo and shopping and out to eat several times the weekend of my retreat! Sammie keeps busy by making LOTS of messes, changing clothes about 6 times a day, drawing pictures and playing with her babies. She loved the zoo and is looking forward to spending the night with Grandma tomorrow night. We took Syd to camp today. She is in West Lafayette at a conservation camp where she will get her hunter's education card. She will get to shoot bows and guns, ride jet skis and air boats, climb a rock wall, go canoeing, do some 'primitive' camping and cooking and whatever else you can do at camp to have fun! There are 33 girls and 103 boys at this camp! :o[

And, in honor of Father's Day, my Sunday 7 will be 7 things I miss about my Dad (I can't believe he's been gone almost 15 years. So sad.)

1. Listening to him sing George Jones songs.
2. All the horribly ugly cars he ever bought and brought home so proudly!
3. His opinions on EVERYTHING! (I didn't always agree, but it was fun to see what he thought!)
4. The way he smelled...can you say Old Spice??
5. His beagles...he loved to train them.
6. His temper...wowzer!!!
7. His rules! Again, I didn't always agree..but his rules made me the person I am today!

Stealing an idea from my friend KatieJ....

The Sunday 7

(Katie does the Tuesday 10 on her blog, and I always enjoy reading it, so I thought I'd try my own!!!)

Seven fun things I did this weekend!

1) Went on a road trip with KatieJ!
2) Saw Jeanne and Janelle while on that road trip!
3) Saw a baby cow be "borned" (two actually!!!)
4) Ate fresh-made ice cream at the dairy farm (on a waffle cone!)
5) Had a great family day on Sunday
6) Bought bathing suits for the girls (if I had to buy one for myself, it definitely wouldn't have made the list!!! ;o) )
7) Saw Shrek 3 (cute movie!)

So, what did you do fun this weekend????
