UPDATE 8/11/13 Back to School! I will still be doing swaps but slowing down since the school year is in full swing. :)
I am a Christian, wife, mother, and teacher. I support Greyhound adoption, and we currently have two dogs: one Greyhound and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix. I have new chihuahua grand pup we adore!
I am a veteran high school English teacher and a member of Delta Kappa Gamma teacher sorority.
I love shopping at thrift and consignment stores.
Although we are not a pet-free home, we are a smoke-free home.
I enjoy swapping and gift giving. I am an active member of PaperbackSwap. I am in this to have fun. :)
I promise not to be a Flaker. If anything unforeseen happens, I promise to send a message ASAP. I promise to rate ASAP.
Please message me if you do not receive your swap or you don't like something I sent, so I can make things right. :)
I enjoy reading Amish romances. My favorite author right now is Cindy Woodsmall.
I also enjoy reading self-help books. Due to my current health issues, I am reading lots books about perimenopause and practical weight loss.
Since I am an English teacher, reading is my life. I usually have some sort of non-fiction read going all the time.
I love Downton Abbey!
Currently watching: Cedar Cove, Sherlock, Copper, classic Hawaii Five-O, and Buffy The Vampire Slayer
I do need a little daily dose of non-reality drama in my life, so I do record and watch The Young and Restless everyday. My favorite line to laugh at in Y&R: "You don't know who you are messing with." Repeated ad nauseam by Victor Newman.
I love all blues and greens.
Christmas is my favorite time of year and holiday.
