Which would you do?

You already made plans to go to this fabulous Party to go to on Saturday Night, but you get this call from a friend asking if you could help organize this Blood Drive. She said that the volunteers that promised they would work, backed out and now she has nobody to help her get things ready for the charity event.

What would you do? Work on the event, or accept the invitation to do the party? Has this ever happened to you?

Well ladies....I would have to do the Blood Drive. My heart would want to party, but I have been on the receiving end of blood transfusions....and I know how important it is. Now....couldn't you do both? I mean, how late could the blood drive last?

angel, thanks for your comment;
No we already went and sent our regrets... We have to agree getting the Blod Drive is more important than having a great time.. We just wanted to see if anybody else felt the same way, and how many would even post anything.. You are one of our most loyal friends and posters, not many even visit this site..

We are working on setting this up for Tuesday, but all the prep work is going on tomorrow, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.. calling, setting up appointments, getting the refreshments, and we are also having demonstrations on that new cpr.. Most people don't know all the behind the scenes work to make any charity successful.. Its all in the planning and details..

Snow Days!!! The Schools are closed, the roads are near impossible, but we made a promise, and we started last night.. They claim that the weather is going to stop snowing soon.. So far we now have 14 to 18 inches, the plow came by last night, when we had 8 inches, and we haven't seen him since.. Don't you just love cleaning your drive, just to have to reclean at the road?

At least we were able to get some of the work done by phone and fax, but we now need to get the old subburban (4 wheel) dug out, the minivan won't do today.. Lots to do, and won't have much blogging time today, tomorrow, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.. So don't expect anything new till Wedsenday when we should be exhausted.. Wish you luck with your Snow Days, we just hope ours will end for now.. Wish us luck on getting this drive done, hope we get a good turn out..

blood drive... no question... not only because it is a good cause... but when a friend needs you... and friend responds.
