Sweet Boy


I gave blood, yesterday. They put a cotton ball on the wound from the needle stick and wrap your arm in that self-stick bandage stuff. Chunguita noticed the bandaid on my finger from the screening test, and she asked why it was there. She was curious about the boo-boo on my arm, but Pulguito got very upset when he saw all the bandaging on my arm.

He came over to me and with great concern said, “Please, tell me you are going to be okay.”

Dear boy. It’s hard to be 4 and not understand so much, like why on earth anyone would want to give blood.

Cheongsam STitched Together

So my latest t-shirt is almost finished. I don’t have the current picture, with the sleeves and bodice hemmed, but you get a good idea from this. I’m not wild about that flower in the almost center front, but at least it’s not a boob bulls-eye. :flirty:

I haven’t done the closure. That is, it’s pinned shut. I think I’m going to put in snaps, the sew in type, but I’m not sure. I’ll let you know when I decide.


You Are Emerald Green

Deep and mysterious, it often seems like no one truly gets you.
Inside, you are very emotional and moody – though you don’t let it show.
People usually have a strong reaction to you… profound love or deep hate.
But you can even get those who hate you to come around. There’s something naturally harmonious about you.

That doesn’t sound like me (to me) at all.

Your True Love Will Find You Eventually

You definitely put yourself out there a little – but you could be doing more.
If you’re truly looking for love, try doing more things and meeting more people.
You don’t have to actively look for love, you just need to stay active.
Be out there a little more, and the right person will find you!

I am married, so it’s a good thing that I’m NOT putting myself out there a lot. One really nice benefit to being a woman engineer is that every time I turn around, there’s another single man. I never had to look far for a date.

You’re 20% Irish

You’re not Irish. Not even a wee bit.
Not even on St. Patrick’s Day!

That’s right! I’m a Scot!

You Fight Fair

For you, a fight is not about proving you’re right.
Instead, it’s about discussing and resolving difficult issues.
You don’t look for fights, but you don’t avoid them either.
You realize that clearing the air is good, when you go about it the right way.

Your Mouth is a Little Big

You’re not a total tell all, but you don’t hide who you are either.
You’ve struck a good balance between discretion and sharing.
People know you fairly well, at least on a superficial level.
But you save your most revealing secrets for your best friend… or no one!

You Are Fairly Skeptical

You’re not the type of person who will fall for anything…
But you do keep your mind open to all sorts of possibilities.
You figure that anything could be true. After all, the world is a strange place.
However, you’re going to need some convincing before you can believe in aliens or reincarnation!
