I've been tagged

Korben is home from camp. His first comment when he walked in to the house "Gosh I missed the toilet!" lol Guess their bathrooms were pretty rank. Of course he hasn't forgot how to boss Julianna around.
I gave him $10 to spend at the Trading Post while at camp. Here is what he bought:
Pack of skittles
Snickers Bar
Nerds Rope
2 packs of Gum rope
And a necklace with a wooden cross and beads on it that he said was for me but he is wearing. lol
I figured he would spend it mostly on crap. He said he bought the gum earlier during the week and spent the rest of his money this morning before they left camp. He said he won't be eating candy for the rest of the week.

My friend Angel tagged me and I figured I could do this. ;o)

Here are the rules:
a. Link to the person who tagged you.
b. Post the rules on your blog.
c. Write six random things about yourself.
d. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blog.
e. Let each person know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blog.
f. Let your tagger know when your entry is up.

1. I am OCD about where things go in the dishwasher. I have a place for everything. I don't mind when people put things in the dishwasher dirty but do not take offense if I open the washer up and rearrange everything. lol
2. I swear in my previous life I lived on the Prairie in the late 1800's, where I died in the water. Weird I know.
3. I do not consider myself a crunchy mom but I do use cloth diapers, nurse my baby and try to eat healthy. Right now I am researching some local farmers to buy beef/pork/chicken off of. Also fruits and veggies and possibly eggs. We also recycle glass, metal, paper and plastic.
4. I HATE big headed stores like Walmart, but I still shop there for convenience. I am trying to go local and shop at local stores, buy from local farmers and eat at local restaurants. I would rather have my money go back to my town than to a CEO of a major corporation who cares nothing for his workers.
5. Politically I do not know where I stand. I'm against abortion, I am for all LEGAL people to have rights, I support our troops 110% but want the war to be over now, I do not want universal health care, I do not want anymore illegals in the country. If they want to be here, come legally, learn the language and work like the rest of us. Do not come here illegally, get paid under the table and use our government money to support your butt and your families. My great grandparents came over from Europe and lived the right way. So can everyone else.
6. Once the children are old enough to be in school I want to volunteer my time to local organizations. Maybe I can use my degree in some way.

I will TAG Angie, Jen, Amber, Jill, Jessica, and Roxy.

You and I are so much alike politically, and have you heard about Rocky Glade farms or West Wind Farms? I have a friend who really approves of Rocky Glade-- her name is Ashlee and she is on my blogroll, so go and read her blog about her experience with Rocky Glade if you get a chance.

I think the prices at either are pretty comparable to grocery store costs-- I mean, sure the fresher stuff is pricier but it's healthier and organic, and at least you know with the farms that you're getting real meat that hasn't been injected with antibiotics or hormones. You also know that the farmers are getting paid and earning a real living.

As soon as I can justify it budget-wise, I'm going with Rocky Glade for fresh veggies and West Wind for meats. Both of them have booths at the Franklin Farmers Market on Saturdays.
