Meet Me On Monday! is a weekly blog party hosted by Java at, Never Growing Old, where she provides five new get to know you questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post. This is really a fun way to get to know a little bit about yourself and your fellow bloggers! Mosaic Monday is another weekly blog party hosted by Mary at, Little Red House, where you can link up your favorite photo mosaics.
Ok so here are today’s questions:
1. Caesar Salad or Garden Salad?
Garden Salad because I like mixed greens, especially spinach salads with lots of nuts and dried fruits and vinagarette dressings. Caesar salads, especially with bottled dressings do not agree with me ;)
2. Will you be watching the Royal Wedding on April 29th?
Will be watching some of it but will not spend the entire day watching it. I loved watching Princess Diana's wedding but lost interest in the Royal family after her death...especially when Charles married Camilla...too tacky for me.
3. Last thing you spent lots of money on?
This gazebo for our garden...
Now we just have to put it together ;)
4. Window seat or aisle seat?
Doesn't really matter to me...usually I give DH the window ;)
5. Do you know your blood type? O but can't remember if it's -/+ which ;)
I should since I've had kids and I have my blood ID card...somewhere...so I'll be looking for that later. In the meantime it made me ask...What does the postive or negative in blood type mean?
There are two parts to a blood type. One is the letter, A,B,AB, or O. This is the major part of the blood type. The other or minor part is the Rh type, which the A,B,AB, or O part is either positive or negative. Let me explain. The A or B or AB part of the blood type is called an antigen. It is inherited from your parents. The +/- part of the equation is call the Rh or "Big D" antigen. It is also inherited. Most likely, if one of your parents were + for Rh, then the offspring will be also. This is a general explanation.
The clinical significance of the Rh factor appears when a mother-to-be in her 28th week of pregnancy comes to the clinic and discovers that she is Rh - (particularly O blood type) and there is a chance that the baby growing in her womb is Rh +. The difference in their Rh factors would cause mom's immune system to take action; it would try to attack the baby (Rh Hemolytic Disease of the Newborn)causing anemia in the baby. As the baby's blood circulates through mom, there is a good chance that the bilirubin from the baby would accumulate in mom and she may become jaundiced. To prevent such things from happening, mom would be given prophylactic treatment (anti-RhD IgG immunoglobulin) during her 28th week of pregnancy.
Talk about window seat or aisle seat...we had a whirlwind weekend with my boys in Pittsburgh, PA this past weekend. Last week was my youngest son's birthday, April 13th, so we all went up to help him celebrate and to visit. Here is a photo of my son Tim and DIL (Ashley) as he is opening up his gifts.
Over the weekend we ate lots of food, played cards, watched movies and had loads of fun just relaxing and playing their xbox instruments...
I tried it for about two seconds...and just could not find the beat...it was more like playing a video game...which I do not do at all...so I quickly stepped back and enjoyed watching the kids play.
The weekend ended with a FULL day of travel...oh my! Mitchell was suppose to fly out at 9:00 am from Pittsburgh to Charlotte and his flight was cancelled and he could not get another flight out all day. The only possible, last flight, was at 7:00pm and there were no guarantees. Mitchell felt like he was going to be stuck like Tom Hanks in the movie, The Terminal. So we changed his ticket to fly home with us to Raleigh and then we drove him to Charlotte...made for a really long day of traveling but it was all worth it so that we could be together for the weekend ;)
Anyone else have a Planes, Trains and Automobiles travel type weekend?
If so...then I hope you all get some time rest and relax today.
