Thanks for the Tag Bennett Ohana!

6 facts/habits about myself:

#1 - I don't use my phone in public unless it's absolutely necessary. I would leave mine in the car at all times, except for how badly it frustrates Richie. . .PLEASE NOTE: if you are with a human, put the phone in your pocket. TEXTING IS STILL "BEING ON THE PHONE" AND IS SO RUDE WHEN YOU ARE WITH A LIVING BREATHING HUMAN WHO DESERVES YOUR RESPECT--this especially includes people who are serving you--like people helping you at the checkout stand etc. GRRRR! What has happened to us??? We have all these "virtual relationships" spinning all around while we ignore the opportunity to connect with the people right in front of us!! Ok, deep breath . . . and . . . ahhh . . . moving right along . . .

#2 - I love dark dark dark chocolate!! Oh my gosh!!! I'm salivating just thinking of it! The more I learn about how great it is for you, the more I love it!! I tried for a while to eat a square a day "medicinally" but I'd end up eating the whole bar. . . I know it's good for you, but a bar a day MAY be pushing it just a bit.

#3 - We recite the same scripture to my kids EVERY night before they go to bed. . . ever since June 4th 2003 when Raleigh was born. "How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publishith peace, that bringeth good tidings of good, that publishith salvation, that sayeth unto zion, thy God reigneth!"

#4 - I only like to fold laundry when it's warm. Cold laundry makes me feel frustrated and depressed. Warm laundry makes me feel happy and productive.

#5 - I am OBSESSED with saying hello and smiling at people who look won't look at me. . . like in a hallway, someone looks down and away until they pass you? Uh uh uh! I'll slump down as far as it takes and catch their eye and say, "Hi there!" "Smile first, smile often, smile despite." Brad Wilcox taught me that, and Richie showed me how (he'll make the grumpiest person on earth smile and laugh in 10 seconds flat--especially at a fast food drive through). I really believe that grouchy people are just shy and/or misunderstood.

#6 - Dirty secret: I have to work very hard not to be rude to customer service representatives on the telephone. . . and by work very hard, I mean VERY HARD.

Now that you know 6 things about me, I am going to TAG 6 people. The Rules: Each player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves. At the end of the post the player then tags six people and posts their names then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Have fun!

And since I don't know 6 people who blog, I'll tag one, Micah and Nicole. . .
