April 2017 - Hello again, swap friends! I've been on an extended hiatus since ~May 2013 due to flaker drama, and I'm slowly making a comeback. Here's to hoping for a smooth experience this time!
PLEASE NOTE - I am not a fan of animal products. Feathers, leather, wool, beeswax, lanolin, bone, etc make me a :( face. It's safer not to send me edibles of any kind, including tea. Thank you for your consideration! ♥
I reached 1000 hearts on June 28th, 2012 - yay for happy mailboxes! ♥
Hi, mystery reader! I'm a happily married mother of two girls - one is ten, the other is six.
My eldest was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in January 2016. (It was a super-scary time, but she's adjusted very well.) I have to go back-and-forth between the school and home at least three times a day, plus I babysit a toddler part-time. I have hopes of acquiring some free time one of these days, hah! ♥
Our herd - Two cats (Zoey and Koopa) and two dogs (Bowser and Ellie). We said goodbye to Boo in 2013. :(
I've turned into one of those day planner-crazy people. It's fun and keeps me both organized and motivated. Yay for planners! (I have two planners - one of the big 8x10 planners by 1canoe2, and a classic (medium) vertical Happy Planner. Overall, I prefer the Happy Planner.)
I go by Marryth just about everywhere, so if you see another Marryth somewhere online, it's probably me!
I used to play FFXI, WoW and GW2. My husband and I still technically play FFXIV, though my free time is minimal, so I'm not on all that often.
I do play Pokemon Go, along with my husband and our girls - it's fun to go on a Pokemon hunt together when we have some spare time! :)
TV -- I really don't watch much, and when I do, it's probably on Netflix. I especially love Marvel's Agents of SHIELD and Star Trek: The Next Generation, and I was sad when the Hannibal series was cancelled. :(
Movies -- I'm open to almost anything, as long as it's not over-the-top senseless violence/gore-y. I used to LOVE horror movies, but after having kids, I just can't watch 'em. I have an intense dislike for "chick flicks". My genre of choice these days tends to be action or sci-fi - bonus points if it's funny.
(I'm sorry, but I rather hate Twilight. ^^;)
I read a TON, whenever I get a few minutes to myself. I'll read anything I can get my hands on - I read too quickly to be very choosy. My books of choice are generally fantasy, sci-fi, horror or mythology-based. My Stephen King collection is nearly complete, yay! If you have any book suggestions, please do share.
My musical tastes are incredibly eclectic. My playlist bounces between anything from (old) Weezer to Etta James to Opeth to Operation Ivy to Beethoven. Current favorites: Howl by Florence + the Machine, Yellow Flicker Beat by Lorde.
Colors: Tropical colors - think banana yellow, bright orange, bright green, teal, bright pink, purple, etc.
Themes: Foxes, hot air balloons, fruits (citrus fruits, strawberries, pineapples, kiwifruit), cute dinosaurs, red pandas, giraffes, robots, owls, stars, planets, galaxies, cute Pokemon, takochu, kawaii (especially Hannari Tofu and other cute foods), leafy trees, cacti and other succulents.
Misc: Planners and planner accessories, Project Life, adult coloring books, Pokemon Go, NES, reading, cross stitch, making things, music, BJDs, sunshine, gardening, cooking, learning, video games.
I DO NOT like: Cell phones. Animal products. Hazelnuts. The color red. Coffee. Aspartame. Black licorice. The smell of smoke or incense. Converty-religious stuff. Toe, knee-high or thigh-high socks. Realistic squirrels, horses, or deer. FBs or anything like them. Twilight. Anything circus-related.
I'm phobic of: Clowns, eyeballs, flying bugs. (Butterflies are okay.)
Current tags and whatnot:
It makes me sad that I have to add this section, but here we go. I'm only going to list swaps which DO NOT have an angel at the top. (It was getting way too big otherwise, which is sad.) I have never once had a flaker make up a swap for me, and I'm veryVERY thankful for my lovely angels! Flakers and angels for other swaps will be listed separately. And another big THANK YOU to those lovely folks who angel things for people who get flaked on - people like you make swap-bot a better place! :)
(Everything to date has been angel-ed - yay!)
