About Me

back to the Dr. for the 3rd time today and I have pneumonia still and also a bacterial infection that is triggering esophagus contractions during coughing which is leading to vomiting everything I eat, haven't been able to keep anything down for five days.... hope the new meds work and i promise to update everyone as I start to feel better & better

UPDATE 9/9 Just signing in since a week or so ago. Have had some medical and family problems to deal with. I am sending my partners info to let them know that their swap will be going out by this Saturday.

I have pneumonia and then today I coughed so hard that I broke 2 ribs. I have already contacted all of my partners who have swaps due from me, just wanted to also make a note here just in case.

Hi! I am a thirty-something stay at home mom to 3 wonderful kids (a boy, Caleb 13 yo, and two girls Harper 5 yo & Maryn 4 yo), two dogs (Fiona & Dega) and two kitties (Bad Kitty & Oreo). I married my high school sweetheart and we haven't looked back since.

I have recently (within the past 2 1/2 years) been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, severe depression & an anxiety disorder. One thing about swapbot, I truly believe it has saved my life and given me a sense of normalcy. Being able to occupy my time with creative endeavors helps me get through the manic parts of my bipolar disorder. ♥♥♥Thank you swapbot♥♥♥*

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT SWAPPING I really have loved every swap I have done so far. I always put a 120% into my swaps, most always adding in extra little goodies to make my partner smile. I really love the idea of making some one's day, making someone smile when they open their package! I also always leave feedback immediately when I receive a package. I send most of my U.S. swaps out with delivery confirmation or with insurance added SO, if you do NOT receive a swap from me PLEASE, PLEASE let me know before rating!

Comment: Hi Leighanne. I'm sorry to have to do this, but the idea of our swap was no more flakers! I sent you a fabulous package. It hurts my feelings that you told me several times my package was ready to mail and it didn't happen. I do hope by now you are feeling better and I will re rate when/if I receive anything. Take care!
Comment: I tried to contact you concerning this swap but up til now still haven't heard anything nor received your swap. Perhaps if I do get my swap eventually I will consider of rating you differently.

I am going back and tracking the origins and destinations of my swaps. WE did an octopus ATC swap back in '10. If you don't mind, could you share your city/state? Thanks so much.

I hate to ban you from the Monthly ATC Swappers group as your ratings have fallen to low as group rules states for you to be a member

BusyB on Aug 18, 2010:

Hi Leighanne! Your swap is all ready to send....just waiting to hear from you. (a quick question through PM) If I don't hear from you by this afternoon, I'll go ahead and send your swap. :) Hope it makes you smile!! Bonnie <3

Hi! I left you a PM about our private swap yesterday. I need a bit more time. Thanks so much!

PinkInk on Jul 10, 2010:

Enjoyed reading your profile. I'm your swap partner in the flapper atc swap. I like you just by reading your profile and seeing your pics and art on flickr. Your daughter is a very artistic, love the kitty. Loved the pics of your dogs and cats...Darling. What is a Slam? I really enjoy creating mini books on different subjects, I think our artistics styles are similar...if after seeing my atc, let me know if you want to do a private swap. Take care, PinkInk.
