Hi! I'm Cheryl! I'm married and I live in Plainfield, IL, about 40 miles southwest of Chicago. I'm a huge Chicago Blackhawks hockey fan.
Proud fur momma of an "energetic" hound-mix puppy, named Jack, which we adopted from a local shelter (Fall 2018). We haven't had a puppy in a long time and I would appreciate any tips/advise on how to train and survive a puppy who has endless energy and is a bit nippy. He recently started attending doggy daycare one day a week to get some energy out and that is helpful....so far! LOL
I am a Social Worker and my focus is helping adults with severe mental illness live independently in the community. My motto (acquired from Pinterest): "Love thy Neighbor....No Exceptions!"
I love all things postal, snail mail and mail art. I'm not sure what I enjoy most...sending mail or receiving mail. I love stamps and first day cover envelopes as well.
I enjoy visiting central Wisconsin and I am addicted to Cheese!
One of my simple joys is stumbling upon an interesting quote. Sometimes just watching tv, listening to the radio or reading a book can lead to the surprise of a quote that moves you. For some odd reason, I especially like very odd/obscure quotes, lines from movies and music lyrics. If you have any favorites please pass them along.

Stocking stuffer swaps: I love these swaps and put quite a bit of time into finding the right gift and wrapping the gift nicely. I really like present presentation, it enhances the experience :)
*Postcard wishlist: I am not picky, I love all types of postcards (used, new, in an envelope, naked). I do love vintage PC's. I'm also fond of postcards with scalloped edges. I enjoy images of water (ice, lakes, oceans, fog, steam, beaches, rain, waterfalls), clouds, Ansel Adams, black & white and cinema/TV. I like odd and quirky cards and I don't mind offensive cards.
*I enjoy receiving mail with real stamps for postage (but I understand its not always feasible)
*reward stickers/toddler type stickers
Some of my favorite shows.... The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Good Place, Mr. Robot, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Bob's Burgers, General Hospital and Outlander.
*Anything humorous....I love comedy and great one liners, (some of my favorite comedians: Jim Gaffigan, Mitch Hedberg, Melissa McCarthy,John Pinette, Kristen Schaal......too many to list)
I love great movies.....I've wateched AFA Top 100 movies of all time (checked off of the bucket list!).
I enjoy suspense and psychological thrillers and non-fiction audio books.
