The Versatile Blogger Award

I think my crafty neighbor Carol is trying to influence me into blogging more by selecting me as a recipient of the Versatile Blogger Award!  It's a good thing I love checking out her blog for inspiration and ideas, or I might have missed out on my award...

Based on Carol's post it looks like I am supposed to reveal 7 things about myself... 
1)     I am currently training for my second Ironman distance triathlon.  For those who have no clue what that means (and mom in case you've forgotten...  {grin}), it is a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run (yes a marathon) all within a 17 hour time limit.  My husband and I have been told we're a little crazy.
2)     By day I'm an engineer...  at night (once my training is done) the little kid that loves to color comes out to play.
3)     As a child I had nightmares about wolves - as an adult, my favorite breed of dog is the Alaskan Malamute.
4)     I love to play in the snow (shoveling or driving in it are another story).
5)     I've tent camped in the jungles of Belize and Costa Rica for vacation.
6)     I have a tendency to talk to my computer - when it talks back I'll start to worry!
7)     I do not own an i-pod (or any device that digitally stores music)...  if I dig around I think I might be able to find a portable cd player, and maybe even a walk-man! 

Whew - that was harder than I expected.  Now I'm supposed to pick 8 bloggers to pass this on to, but since I'm still quite new to the whole blogging thing I'm going to leave it open to anyone who feels the urge to reveal 7 things about themselves to the world!  {smile}

Thanks for dropping by!

With a full time job and all that heavy duty training you're into, I don't know where you find time to make cards, but I'll be watching for some soon anyway :)
