How strange that Ramadan started a day later than I thought it would, and that the blood drive was a couple days earlier than I thought it was! Yesterday was the first day of the blood drive and I was not fasting so I was able to go without worries. It went super well and I didn't feel any differently than normal (not weaker or anything) when I got out of there yesterday evening. I'd given blood before and ended up feeling OK but a bit weakened but not at all this time! It really seems like it all worked out as it was supposed to!

Now only thing is that this morning, it's not even 10am on my first day of fasting and I already feel like if I stay up too long I will pass out! Don't know if it has anything to do with giving blood yesterday because I seriously felt great the whole rest of the evening. I will take a nap and see because I slept terrible last night and it might also just be that! Better rest and *then* do everything around the house that I need to. I'm lucky and have that luxury this week since I'm on vacation and I was able to bring my daughter to daycare today. Better for me to take advantage of that or I will not last a full day of fasting.
