Do You Share Your Life With Others? - Aloha Friday

When I got my driver's license, they asked if I wanted to be a donor. I said yes. I think it's a great idea to give of myself even when I'm no longer here and even better it helps someone else. 

So my questions

1. Are you a donor? 
2. Do you give blood? 

1. I am a donor
2. No. I have not yet offered to give blood but I'd like to. Dh gives blood regularly.

There is a situation with our water line and so I haven't been cooking anything if I can help it. We can't take showers, use the toilet much or do any laundry until it's fixed. So for now it's all about the alternatives. 

Dh is hungering for quesadillas so I'm guessing that's what's for dinner. 

I am also joining in with Friday Follow. So if you happen to visit and follow me, I will definitely be returning the love.

  1. I am an organ donor. I feel very strongly about that. I don't give blood though because I don't weigh enough. :(

  2. That's it! I'm too small. Don't weigh enough to give blood! I couldn't remember why I couldn't.
    Maybe I'll try again if it's needed.

  3. I am not an organ donor.

    I don't give blood because my veins roll. Seriously, when I tried to give blood my vein rolled and it hurt like crazy.

    Even when I go for a simple blood test my veins roll, hide and/or pop.

  4. Oh Michelle! that is crazy about your veins!

  5. I'm not a donor since in my religion it's considered a sin, and I haven't given blood yet..

    Your dish looks fantastic! Have a great weekend..

  6. hey there- this is Samantha from Have Sippy Will Travel, just hopping over to say HI! :)
    Your food looks amazing! I can't cook like that, LOL.
    I also love to travel :) And I'm a blood doner, and an organ doner- but I hope I don't need to donate the latter anytime soon, LOL
    Nice to "meet" you!

  7. (and of course, i'm following, LOL)

  8. I am an organ donor, but, don't give blood because of prescription drugs I take.

  9. We absolutely LOVE Quesadillas in our house! My friends are always asking when hubby's gonna make them quesadillas! lol Try adding a little balsamic to your chopped tomatoes it gives them a great kick! Yummy! x

  10. It's a wonderful thing to give blood I never know one day you might need blood.

  11. I am a donor, and I don't give blood - I can't I am anemic and I had a platelet transfusion

  12. I'm a universal recipient which means I can get any blood type but, cannot give blood.

    Have a great day!

  13. Happy Friday to you. Love your post. I can not give blood due to a childhood illness. I think you are great for being a organ donor.

    My Friday question for you

  14. i don't mind giving blood if I'm not underweight for my frame and body type. As for organs, sure if I have quality organs to give - I am not in top shape and condition, I don't know if anyone would even want my organs.

  15. I can't give blood because I lived in the UK in th 90s and the blood banks won't accept my blood thanks to Mad Cow. At the moment, there's no way to test the safety of my blood even though I don't have the disease.

    I really should be an organ donor. It would be my final charitable act and the parts ain't gonna do any good in the ground. I wonder if they would take my organs, though or is it another Mad Cow issue.

    Thanks for linking up and playing along for Friday Food Fight. Those quesadillas look delicious.

  16. i cant give blood...
    well, i never tried..
    but the one time i had to have blood drawn, it took 4 nurses and the doctor to get it... as i freaked out...
    and when they tried to put the iv in me for labor, they could not find a vein and had to get a specialist to come help... what is up with that?!

  17. I can't give blood due to a medical condition that I have.

  18. yes, I don't think I weight enough to give blood and I am too superstitious to be a donor. my blood type is also rejected by donor groups. Happy Friday.

  19. I wanted to donate but I am not eligible. Can you imagine! This has been an ice breaker talk with my friends ever!

  20. I'm very much in favor of organ donation (although, personally I don't want to donate my eyes - I don't know why, it's just one of those weird feelings I have). I have never donated blood.

  21. I was denied also. Not only because of my own blood, but they said because so many different diseases have been in my family... Diabetes for one, and just off the top of my head I've had 9 people have Cancer in my family 2 of which was my parents.

  22. I'm an organ donor - I won't be needing my organs after I cross over, so they might as well help other people! I don't donate blood, though, mostly because I tend to be anemic more often than not, and they prefer not to have my blood. ;)

  23. I am an organ donor, giving blood would make me pass out.

  24. I gave blood until I had to stop due to the meds I now take. I gave a little over 10 gallons. I did pheresis for a while because they had me matched to someone.

    I am an organ donor. They can have anything I have except my heart which is why I take meds.

  25. here is a blog award for you!


  26. Hi this is Nicole from Colie’s Kitchen. I am a regular follower who really enjoys reading your blog. I just wanted to stop by and say hi. I hope all is going well. Have a great weekend.

  27. I have informed my family to donate any and all body parts when I die, but I cannot donate blood. I'm anemic.

  28. I'm registered as an organ donor, I figure when I'm dead I won't need them and if they can help someone else then that can only be a good thing. I have given blood once, but it caused my platelet count to drop so the dr told me not to do it again!

  29. I've signed up to be an organ donor. As for blood, I did that once and was so sick after it took me a week to recover. Doctor's orders I can't donate unless it's an emergency :(

  30. This comment has been removed by the author.

  31. When I got my license I did opt to be an organ donor, but I'm unsure because of my Lyme if that was such a good idea O.o

    As for giving blood, you don't know how badly I'd love to do it! I mean, I wish more then anything I could! Unfortunately, even though they have said it's okay for me to give, I choose not to because I KNOW I can infect people and that's something I can't live with.

    Oh man, those quesadillas and that quak looks SO yummy xD

    Have a great weekend!

  32. I am an organ donor and I use to give blood regularly when I was younger. I have B+ which is usually the 2nd in demand so they love when I do it.

    P.S. I love your header...your home is beautiful! I could get comfortable there. :)

  33. I am an organ donor but I do not donate blood. I would like to but I don't make the weight requirements.

  34. I do give blood and am an organ donor. I am also on the registry to give bone marrow.

    Good luck with that water problem, Hon. And yet you manage to make a gorgeous dinner for your family.

    You are an inspiration to me, Colette.

  35. I am an organ donor. But its not on my license. And Ive never given blood. I hate needles! But I should.

  36. Yes, I am an organ donor - actually I have said that my whole body can be donated to science.
    Also, I have donated blood once, but it is hard for me to sit that long in one spot. I will do it again when I can.

  37. Nice song. Very relaxing.

  38. I am an organ donor.
