I was lucky. I had to be concerned with the Rh factor because I have A- blood and Hubby has B+ blood. My first born was B+ so I had to get the shot right after having him. My second child was AB- so it was no problem.

I didn't know all of the particulars when it comes to blood, and when I saw O plasma going into my son during a transfusion (the son with AB- blood) I freaked a little. Then I was educated. ;)

When I was pregnant I had to explain the heredity part to the doctor. They were anxious to get my blood type (because of the possible Rh problem) even though I was in my first trimester. I said, "Sure, get my blood type, but it won't be a problem. The father is O-." Doctor, "It could still be a problem." Me, "How? If I am Rh-, so is the baby, and if I'm Rh+, it isn't a problem." Doctor, "Are you sure about that?" "What, if I'm Rh+, there could be a problem?" "No, but are you sure the baby can't be Rh+ if you are Rh-?"

"Want me to draw you the grid?"

Wow. Sounds like my day! I live alone too, also went grocery shopping this morning and spent the same amount. I have a good amount in the pantry too, but have been using up a lot from the freezer lately and stocked up on a lot of things. I'm good now for the next several months.

Been a busy day today - I cleaned and chopped veggies for green salads, steamed fresh corn for a corn and black bean salad, threw a couple of potatoes in the steamer basket with the corn to make potato salad, halved a nice big chuck roast and slow cooked half of it to shred for a mexican feast, and the other half is now marinating in the fridge with a teriyaki blend....separated bulk packages of chicken and pork chops into "me" size freezer bags , roasted some beets, shredded some cheese for enchiladas....oy...

Watching the olympics now with a bowl of vanilla ice cream and blueberries and relaxing.

We have just driven up to the bottle shop and bought a couple of 1Litre bottles of Jim Beam

They were on a good special at $45.00 each, not bad for a litre

So we are now having some afternoon drinks

Thanks Cheryl

We dont drink that often so it is nice when we do have some drinks

We are also celebrating how well our latest game is doing on Big Fish Games

It got up to number 8 in the Top 100, so lots of sales happening, we are well pleased

Oh, yeah. I'd been working on my overstuffed freezer for awhile, so it was time to fill in some gaps.

I only go to this Save-A-Lot once a month, so it's usually a fairly big purchase. They also have the diced stewed tomatoes and cream of something soups so I buy a bunch of each. I also stocked up on snacks. They had several types of Chex mixes for $1 each, plus I've been buying granola bars lately. I want to try several kinds to see what I like before tackling making some myself.

Today's dinner will be slow roasted pork butt. I overcooked the last one to an internal temperature of over 200! Now I know what velveting is. The meat turned out delicious, but I finally used it up.
