I am from Michigan, grew up in a small town on Lake Michigan. I moved away to college and lived in Tennessee, Kentucky, Iowa, Arkansas and now Texas. I have a family. Three boys - 19, 16 and 13 and I am married. My family is very special to me, as my Dad passed away in 2010 and life becomes more meaningful.
I tend to be a perfectionist and cannot stand it when I mess up. I enjoy swapping and began swapping after cancer surgery and my vocal chords were paralyzed. It gave me an outlet to speak and to create. I am a Christian, but a real-life Christian who messes up all of the time and I am willing to admit it. :)
I run the Special Education Department at a local high school serving over two hundred fifty students. I am passionate about special needs and feel that everyone has something to contribute to life.
I will ALWAYS send out a swap, so please let me know if it has been long enough that you should have received it.
I read a lot, so I don't have favorites. I loved the Boxcar Children when I was young, Anne of Green Gables, Little Women.
I love Richard Paul Evans, Debbie Macomber and a few other current authors. I read a lot of Christian romance type books called Love Inspired. I have tons, so if you want to swap some let me know.
I listen to all types of music, but most often Christian alternative / inspirational. I am currently exercising to Just Dance 4, so there are tons of popular songs that I know. I also like country, gospel, blues, bluegrass, etc. I like it all.
Things I like:
I have realized now from doing so many swaps that I am not picky. I do like stuff that has meaning to you. If you sent me something silly, but it has meaning it would be the greatest.
I do like: wooden Cats, nesting dolls, post cards, stamps, old coins, old pictures (I don't need to know the people), sentimental things that may have meaning to you and that you want to share with me.
Some of my favorite swaps are swaps that you have been kind enough to write me a note or to tell me why you did the swap and what ie means to you.
If I realize that a swap guideline wasn't met, I will always let you know. I will not rate until I hear back from you.
