Nov: I am working on trying to correct any issues my postal problems may have caused.
11-25: The postmaster visited me at my home & explained what was happening. He believes everything has been resolved & I should not have anymore of these issues. Fingers crossed he is right.
11-13-13: I just realized today I hate my post office. I have been looking for a package that was sent to me by another SB member & went missing. I have asked my carrier many days if I had any packages & was told no. I called the post office several times & was told the same thing. Well today I went to the post office & asked if I had any packages ... I was told no again. Then another woman cut off what the woman at the counter was saying & told her don't you remember the box in my office. It seems the postmaster had a box of packages that were mine in her office ... I would say there are over 20 packages in it. I will be opening them & leaving feedback in a lil while, after I give my children dinner. gggggggggrrrrrrrrrrrr
In total there were 34 incoming packages & a few packages returned for insufficient postage (they need to check themselves as they put the postage on them). I will be resending the returned packages on 11-15 as that is when I will be out & about again.
Ah the joys of living in the boonies beyond the sticks.
If you are trying to reach me try messaging me here before email. I only check my email once or twice a week, if I remember.
Hi ! I am a single Mom of 4, living in upstate NY. I have two daughters & two sons. My younger daughter is the person who told me about this web site, she has been a member for awhile. My youngest son has A-typical autism (hand flapping, diapers ... etc.) but is very intelligent.
I raise critters, lots of lil critters ... lol. We have chicken, ducks, quail, doves, rabbits. That's besides the pet dogs, cats, & birds.
I guess I should apologize in advance for my handwriting, it is kinda sloppy. I have had 2 strokes & 3 mini strokes (TIAs) in the last 3 years. They have affected my right side & I write with my right hand.
I have become addicted to this site since joining & have been doing a bunch of swaps. I am going to have to try an behave & cut back a lil till the beginning of January. My social security check just doesn't stretch enough to do Christmas & tons of swaps. : (
I enjoy assorted crafts, I guess you could say I dabble in several. I crochet, I work with felt, I make Christmas decorations & ornaments, I hand spin (to make wool), I dry items to make decorations & potpourri. Make candles & soaps.
I hope to learn to do embroidery & weaving over this winter. I have always wanted to learn how to knit, but so far I have had no luck with it.
Since joining this site I have gotten the urge to try journal making & a few other paper crafts. I am enjoying them, but have a lot to learn. I also have become interested in collecting postcards & stamp collecting.
~ I would like to collect some from every country. I know this will take time as I have only just started.
~ I would also like to get one from every state in the USA.
~ Not to mention just collecting the ones I like : )~ lol
~ Since receiving all the swap-bot mail since I joined I have noticed how pretty some of the stamps are. So I decided to start saving them. I haven't gotten in to preserving them as of yet, but you never know.
I am an audiobook junkie !!!!!!!
I usually listen to a book a night, when I can.
I enjoy romance novels especially regency era, vampire, cowboy & shape-shifter.
Yeah I know, escapism ... lol.
I list the books I listen to here http://www.shelfari.com/justmee when I don't forget to.
I listen to a lil bit of everything. Currently on my mp3 player is Garth Brooks, Kid Rock, Glee, Pogue Mahone, Michael Buble, plus a few more.
I LOVE Christmas music, especially the classics (Burl Ives, Bing, etc...).
Oh I am a Gleek, I enjoy the music from the TV show Glee, at last the first few years.
I don't watch very much TV, I'm usually too busy with my books : )
When I do watch it is something I saved on the dvr like Glee, Big Brother or Extream Couponing
Except at Christmas time when I try to watch all the holiday shows & TV movies !
hmmm ... this is a hard one. I rarely go to the movies, maybe once a year if i'm lucky.
In general I like romance or romantic comedies.
I don't think I can pick one but the following are in my top 5 favs.
Pride & Prejudice = Keira Knightley & Matthew MacFadyen
Seven Brides For Seven Brothers
Scarlet (Gone With the Wind 2, TV movie)
I like most things & am easy to please, I just like getting mail that is not a bill.

Handmade items of all types are very much enjoyed !
colors I like ~ purples (from dark to light), periwinkle, natural (like oatmeal), dusty blue, dusty rose.
Coffee ~ I have never tried it & have no plans to.
I was asked to write this list by another swap-bot member, but when I checked their profile there was nothing there. I don't know why but here is my list, I was told to also list my children so here it is.

I got your PC in the "Adventures of the Travelling Postcard R26! Will be passing it on in the next round. :)
I just wanted to let you know i'm out of here. I know you and your girls said this was a fun site with nice people, but I have not seen that. All Dev & I have gotten are frozen accounts for no reasons.
I am so sorry but I need to remove you from the Homemade Card Group. Once you have fixed your rating, feel free to join again. Thank you and good luck. :)
Thank you for returning the Adventures of the Traveling Postcard postcard that you had in you possession. Best of luck in improving your situation here on Swap-Bot.
@reauk I have no idea why some mail gets to it's destination & some does not. I only know I mail it & I save the Customs Declaration form plus the receipt as proof.
I have not flaked on any swap I have joined. I also have recent to everyone that has claimed not to have received a swap from me. Some of these people I have had tracking from the post office that said they had already received.
I will be sending out a third mailing to you today.
Please everyone when you do get your swap please re-rate.
I am so glad to hear that your being able to resolve the postal issues you have had. Will definitely re-rate.
Hope 2014 is a much better year!
I have to remove you from All Things Christmas due to your status. I hope you can rectify your swaps and rejoin.
I never received the stickers from you for the grabbie taggie in the public forum.
Thanks so much for being my angel for Christmas card and little saprise swap 2# ! You didn't have to and it was just an act of kindness, I greatly appreciate it.
