Switchboard Writing

This time I volunteered for our Lexus office... I love going over there... They have a refrigerator full of snacks and drinks. Mmmm...... Strawberry Qwik..... And Diet Coke.... And string cheese. Love it.

On Monday I have an appointment to go to City of Hope hospital to donate platelets. One of our Dealers is really sick and will be needing them more than me.... I'm on edge about it, and the reasons have nothing to do with the actual act of having needles in my arms for two hours... It's more because I have to drive all the way up there by myself, I've never been there before so I will most likely get lost, and I don't know anything about what I need to do when I get there.... Will I have to pay for parking? Where is the part of the building I need to go? How long will it take to get there? Oh well.... It's for a really good cause, so I am happy to do it... Just apprehensive. I tried to make my appointment for tomorrow, but the only one they had that wouldn't get in the way of other plans was at 7am. I'm sorry, I want to help - I do - I just don't want to have to get up at 5am to be ready and there and 7.... So Monday it is. Since it is for one of our Dealers, I doubt they expect me to use any personal time or anything like that... I could probably even grab the keys to one of our pool cars and nab a gas card, but I'm not too worried about that.... Plus, if I take my own car I can just go straight home if it takes a long time or traffic is really bad... Or if I'm feeling crappy. I don't know a lot about how donating platelets makes you feel... I assume you don't really feel any different because you get your blood back... So, anyway, that means I will be spending the weekend taking it easy and hydrating... Sorry, diet coke, I'm gonna have to go easy on you for the next few days... Oh - and I will be dealing with having a headache because all I can take for it is Tylenol and that doesn't work as well for me as Excedrine or Advil... Oh well.... Again - for a good cause. haha

J wanted to go shooting again this weekend, but I think I am going to have to stay home this time... Something tells me that standing in the blazing sun for several hours would be counterproductive to my hydration efforts.... :-) So, instead, I think I will lounge on my couch with my liter bottles of evian and chug water until I float away.... Well, not too much water... I don't want to end up like that lady that was trying to win a Nintendo Wii for her kids...

So.... yeah. That's about it right now. My brain doesn't want to think of anything interesting right now... So I'm going to zone out and read my book while answering the one phone call every 20 minutes or so that comes in here.....

Enjoy your weekends!
