Things that make me jump up and yell WhaaaaaHooooooo!

Real Estate Sales Representative with Your Home Team Advantage

Hi world!  This will go down in history as my very first post.

Kelly Sibilsky is responsible for getting me started.  She's a great teacher!

So, what makes you happy enough to jump for joy?  What will bring a big ole whaaaahoooo out of you?

Here's a few of my favorites:

  • A nice day with plenty of sunshine.
  • The first crocus of the spring popping through and spreading their beautiful purple and yellow petals.
  • My family in good moods!  A good mood is quite contagious.
  • Walking through a public place, smiling - watching how that smile spreads.
  • Happy Clients!  My clients become friends for life.  You better believe I want them happy and do what is necessary to really take good care of their needs.

It's a great day!  I hope you feel the same. :)

Dick Betts - Dicky Betts is one of my very favorite guitarists!  Thanks for the warning - I tend to have an addivtive nature about me, so I'll make sure and time block blogging.

Danny - thanks for the offer!  (even though you called me Linda, I'll still answer to anything)

Thanks Misty and Jason

Whoooohooooooo Elaine!

Hi Katie - I probably jumped in too fast and missed some important stuff.  I have to review my notes from Kelly's class on blogging today.  Anyway - welcome to you, too! :)
