Saint Ashley

-I've been working my butt off (and liking it, I know, weird)

-Friday I not only stopped, but made a U turn to save the life of a turtle in the middle of the road

-Yesterday I donated blood and even let them give me info on donating platelets (it takes TWO hours...and I might do it)

It's like I'm a Good Samaritan all of a sudden. I just had to take a minute and brag about it.

Liking working your butt off isn't weird- it's a character statement. I would have done the uturn for the turtle as well. I like giving blood but I always pass out afterward no matter what. I can't believe some people give blood then go to work- it takes me a couple days to recover. They will have to count on someone else for the platelets. Go buy yourself something pretty- YOU DESERVE IT!!

I think its easier to like your job work than your house work, because you can feel a sense of accomplishment when you complete a job task. With house work, it's a neverending cycle of you cleaning something and someone else coming behind you to destroy it as soon as you're done.

I always stop to save the turtles crossing the street. I've even stopped to let snakes finish crossing the street.

I used to donate blood regularly, but I can't anymore because I am too anemic now. It sucks, too, because I always felt really good about myself whenever I donated blood.

Anyhow, I'll be sending a letter to the pope to nominate you for sainthood ASAP!

Do you have the pope's email address? I'm all out of stamps.

Kudos on all the good deeds!

I have always wanted to give blood. But my pathetic ass is so scared of needles - petrified really (and yes, I know petrified isn't spelled right but I don't care enough right now to look it up) - that I pass out. Then they won't take the blood of my past out person and it gets us no where.

Lordy, this one is a blog post all its own. Flashbacks of needles in my cheek without painkillers and all...!

My husband donates platelets and says it is actually less painful that donating blood. Nice job on the good deeds!

Hey...most places will pay you for your plateletts too!

It's called Kharma. The more of those things you do, the more it comes back to you.

I promise ;)
