Friday morning

I’m so glad it’s Friday. This has been a long week. I’ve put in some extra time at work this week and I’m ready for the weekend. Also, we may even get some rain today. It has been unseasonably warm here the last couple of days and a little rain would be a pleasant change.

I signed up to donate blood this morning, so I’ve got that coming up in about 2 hours. I’ve never donated blood before, so this will be a first for me. I’ve had blood drawn plenty of times and it’s never bothered me, but never in large amounts so it will be interesting to see if I feel dizzy afterward. Apparently, they give all kinds of sweet snacks after the fact. I’ll report on the experience later on.

Pay day today, too, which is always nice.
