6 Things You Might Not Know About Me

I've been "tagged" by Lindsay Ream . I'm supposed to write 6 things people might not know about me and then "tag" 6 other people to do the same. Here goes...

I only had a dishwasher for 9 months of the first 7 years of my marriage. Oh, I forgot, you already know this because I tell EVERYONE about it. I've learned how to state the fact in a way that makes me appear extremely disadvantaged and deprived. As if I'd gone without regular dental care for the past several years. Oh wait, I have. Poor me.

I HATED living in London. It was uncomfortable, dark, and our living conditions were horrible. But, now that we're back in the States, I think about our stay in London all the time - I even dream about being there - and the dreams are always pleasant and lovely.

When it comes to racing, I cave under pressure. If I'm just jogging for exercise, I am really competitive and will try to pass anyone I see. But put me in a race and I have a mental breakdown. I'll often end up running slower than I ever do. This reached it's height when I was running Cross Country at the University of Utah. Please don't Google my name - I'll just
tell you, I did take last in almost every race. Oops.

I was fired from Papa Murphy's. I worked there my Senior year of high school, and was fired for missing work when my family decided to extend a vacation by a few days. How many people can say they've been fired for absenteeism? Okay, probably a lot. I also worked at ZCMI for one day, but walked out on my lunch break because, well, I was assigned to work in the hosiery department. What other explanation do I need?

After Henry was born, I became addicted to make-over shows, specifically What Not to Wear and 10 Years Younger. Was my choice in television genre affected by the fact that my post-partum self desperately needed a make-over? Possibly.

Lionel Richie's "Dancing on the Ceiling" is among the CDs in my music collection. Do I listen to it? Sometimes. Am I ashamed? Yes.

What 6 things may I not know about:
Stacy Heaps
Marci Hansen
Janel Williams
Kimberlee Jensen
Jenny Meese
Denise Avey
You're it! Ready, set, post!

This is my second time being tagged. I was avoiding thinking of things people don't know about me. Turns out we have a few similarities so now I feel braver. Kim I am SOOOOOO excited to see you at Christmas. Do you know your dates yet?
ps.The London thing: Incongruent Memory. I also suffer from that about pregnancy and child birth.

I was really hoping you'd include the text from your high school yearbook in here of Bubba's parting words to you. I guess that defeats the purpose of "6 things you might not know" because I already know it. However, I like to tell everyone I know about it because I think it's so funny! Also, I think you deserve a dishwasher, and a second try at Papa Murphy's!

I finally answered the tagging on my blog. Just about 3 months late. Oops.
