The National Marrow Donor Registry pairs potential donors up with patients who need life-saving bone marrow transplants. However, there aren't nearly enough potential donors. Usually there is a $52 testing fee associated with the HLA testing to be registered in the Registry, but until September 22 the fees will be sponsored through Nascar. If you have ever thought of registering, or even if this is the first you have ever heard of it, please go read the information and seriously consider becoming a registered donor today.
On the right side of the screen, under the cord blood box is a box that says "Events" Click on the link that says "Nascar Foundation Drive." About 3/4 of the way down that page, you will click on "join online now." Then finish filling in the paperwork and the Promo Code will automatically generate. I know it is a couple of extra clicks, but please don't let that deter you from joining!
It's been awhile, and for that I apologize. I tend to do that a lot in my life. I will start doing something and then just stop...I guess I do a lot of things just to see if I can. I used to make birdhouses, it was something I was really good at. I made 6 or 7 of them, gave them to family and then quit making them. I guess part of it could be that I have to be in just the right mood too.
I also moved one of my sisters here from Georgia, that makes 3 of us that live here now. It's nice to have them so close again. Now we just have to see what the youngest is going to do.
We went camping last week out at Cloud 9 Ranch...It was fabulous! So peaceful, I wish we could have stayed longer. Here are some photos from our trip...
I could have stayed here forever, believe me I considered staying.lol
My youngest son inspired & helped create todays freebie. He is always outside finding bugs, spiders, snakes, all kinds of things.lol He knows more about these things than anyone I know, which makes me very proud as a mom.
This is an earth snake he found one day while at my sisters house.
Here is todays freebie...A mini kit called Mud & Bugs You can download it HERE Please leave me some love if you DL.=)
Part of my journey has been to be ok with how I look and get more photos of me...I don't want my kids and grandkids to have to wonder what I looked like.
I am getting better... I usually don't let people take pictures of me, especially if I don't have my hair done and make up on...If I did see pictures of me un made up I deleted them. These were taken the other day, and I am happy with them...I was having a bad hair day and had no make up on... lol but I am ok with that, it's the "real" me.
I am not 100% comfortable with this... But I am letting others see it, and that is a huge step for me.
This is my girl Maggie...I had to throw this one in here too...=) This is what she does after our walks...lol Good thing the bed is a king.=P
Here is a LO I did with one of the photos...
