I've always wanted to do a little more. I am a registered organ donor, but since I have to die to do that, I'm left with wanting to do something I can do now.
You guys know that I keep up with Nate and Tricia at Confessions of A CF Husband...wonderful things are happening for that family. It's amazing! Anyway, the other day, Nate had a post about being a bone marrow donor. Donald and I have considered this in the past, but there are fees involved just to get on the registry. Nate's post told me that the fees to register are being waved in honor of Mother's Day. Yay!! I hopped right over to the
National Marrow Donor Program website and got registered. When hubs got home from work, he did the same. For free! We are waiting on information packets which will include the things we need to send in a tissue sample (a swab from the inside of a cheek) so we can be officially listed on the donor registry. How cool would it be to help someone in need?
The fees are being waved for the first 10,000 people to sign up until the 19th! Hurry, do it now!!
Thanks for the treats, Brittany! :)
And in the world of children, it has become routine to play a game of Wii bowling before the kids go to bed nearly every night.
We were playing last night. The kids go first, then me, then Donald. Donald begins his bowling. I'm not paying much attention, but I hear Ella say 'Dad, I'm sorry I made your hair gray.'
He does have
many a few gray hairs...and I believe he has joked with her that she has caused them...but it turned out that this is not what she was referring to.
She made him do a makeover on his Wii character and he has gray hair.
OH! I see.
Give it 10 years, dear, and you'll really be making daddy's hair gray!!
