Another Award!

Hi all,

My non-school, non-internet life is interfering with my blogging time!  This is going to be a short one.  I want to thank Christine from Tales From Room 17 for giving me the Versatile Blogger Award!  Isn't it pretty?

The rules of the award are:
1.  Thank the blogger who gave you the award (thanks again, Christine!)
2.  Include a link to their site.  (see above)
3.  Include the award image in your post (see above again)
4.  Give 7 random facts about yourself (see below)
5.  Nominate 5-10 other bloggers, include their link, and let them know.  (this one will happen later when I have enough time to figure out which bloggers out there don't already have this award.)

7 Random Facts:
1.  My name rhymes with "oh well" or "noel"
2.  I was bucked off a horse and broke one of my vertebrae when I was in my 20s.
3.  I love tech gadgets and have to fight the compulsion to keep buying more of them.
4.  My car is a very sensible Toyota, Camry.
5.  One of my goals in life is to visit all 50 states.  I'm a little over half way.
6.  Ever since my master's degree, I don't like to read anything other than a simple novel.
7.  I used to be fluent in American Sign Language and work as an interpreter for the School for the Deaf.

I'll get you a list of the 5-10 awardees soon.



  1. I remember VERY clearly when you were bucked off the horse. It was so scary. You were a trooper and got back on and finished the ride down the mountain. (Probably because you didn't know what else to do since I couldn't go by myself to get help.) I am so glad it wasn't worse.

    Love ya,


    1. It was probably more scary for you than it was for me. I just thought I'd had the wind knocked out of me.


I love comments...they make me feel like I'm not talking to myself.
