I have had to drop out of Easter Goodies Swap because I am having difficulties with my Van & I need to get it fixed. Something under the dash with my Windshield wipers. I just bought a new motor for it 6-7 months ago plus had 2 computer chips replaced because the old motor was blowing them.I don't know how much it will cost, but If I can - I will join some Swaps after that. International Swaps cost a lot more to send from the USA & I cannot afford to do it. If there was one for USA I might do it. I wanted to be able to do my other 3 Valentine's Day Swaps.I already have all the stuff for them. I feel bad about dropping out; but I really didn't have a choice. I have never had to do that before & I hope I never have to again. : (
Well I went to get my van checked & ended up costing Nothing to fix! I wouldn't know that until they took a look at it though. There was a Clip that had fallen off & that was why my Windshield wipers were not working.Glad that's over & done with.
