Last post, I was supposed to have a picture of my old Beta Fish, Clark Kent, but difficulties loading prevented that from happening. SO! Without further ado, here is the late Clark Kent (sympathetic sigh here please) and here is round 2, Apollo!!!! (“Ooooh” and “Ahhh” here please).
This week is one of those weeks where I do not have much to do, but I know I will have a ton to do next week and can’t do anything about it. The end of the semester is coming up fast and summer is waiting. I don’t know about you guys, but I am ready to hit the pool and run around like a crazy person, throwing papers in the air as I do so. I am looking forward to the summer break and even for next fall semester. I don’t have a big summer planned. It will most likely involve work, work, and more work. Hopefully I get a camping trip in! If you have never been camping I implore you to try it. My family and I do a floating/camping combo near the Meramac at the Garrisons River Resort in Steelville, Missouri. It’s cheap, quaint, and you can pitch your tent right next to the river. Fishing is nice and the water is great. That will be a summer highlight for sure in my book!
I don’t have much else to say, so I will just end this post about donating blood. Today at Fontbonne the Mississippi Valley Blood Center was here, and I participated in saving 3 lives today. To anyone thinking about that needle, it is easier than people think and does not hurt. A quick pinch and you are perfectly fine. I make it a habit to donate when I can. The American Red Cross has many different facilities that take appointments every day. Just Google the nearest site near you and start reaping the benefit of feeling great for taking time to save lives. Blood is needed more than people realize, especially you O type blood people!!! So if you aren’t too busy, give a donor facility a call and set up an appointment today!!!
