About Me

Updated February 2019

Hello! My name is Amy. I live in Virginia, just outside Washington DC. I live here with my husband of 27 years. In early 2017, we lost our furry son, a Bichon/Westie mix of 13.5 years, to lymphoma. We do have a human son, who is 23 years old. He lives on his own now and is working hard managing a local restaurant/club and working to get engaged to a lovely gal! We love our empty nest!

We missed our dog, so have begun to take in dogs for sitting via Rover. If you are new to Rover and need to use a sitter local to you, you can use our coupon code to save $20 on your first stay: EMPTYNESTPETHAVEN20.

I work full-time in nursing administration for several human services programs within our local government. In my spare time, I love to ride my bike around town and on the local trails, knit, watch Neflix and read/write pen pal letters.

My husband and I volunteer in a peer ministry helping couples who are experiencing pain in their marriages. This program is called Retrouvaille. We highly recommend it because it saved our marriage. If you ever have questions about it, please let me know.

April 2018 Camping Update: We recently purchased an Aliner Ranger 12 pop-up camper. Let the adventures begin! And, no more camping on the ground for us!

Favorite Crafts

  • Knitting - socks, hats - love sock yarn for socks and hats
  • Crocheting - blankets, baby hats
  • Making handmade envies
  • Sewing (when my machine and I are not fighting)

Info about Swapping

I send swaps out on time. I also endeavor to rate in a timely fashion. If you have question about a swap I've marked as sent, please contact me before rating. I'd like to have a chance to make things right.

If I have not rated you, please drop me a line and ask. I try to keep up with rating but sometimes, due to my humanness, I forget. I'm happy to look at my files and get the rating completed.

Please write your username and the name of the swap on the INSIDE of the envelope or package so I can rate you.

I'm not big on responding to ratings on my profile. Please don't take this personally. If you'd like to have more communication with me or become a pen pal, please let me know. I'm open to new pen pals and private swaps.

Please don't contact me to ask me why I did not give you a heart. If I didn't give you a heart, I didn't think your swap warranted it.

If your swap does not meet criteria, I will rate down, and contact you to let you know why. While I will still rate you down, I will change my rating if things are rectified in a timely fashion. I rate down pending resolution to notify other swappers and hosts of a potential problem. I will ALWAYS change my rating if I get something and things are resolved.

Most of all, Swapbot is a fun hobby for me. It's not a job. However, life sometimes happens. If for some reason you have a problem fulfilling a swap because you don't have the stuff or life is busy and you'll be late, please communicate with me. I'm more than willing to take your stress into consideration when I rate, IF I know what is happening and you communicate with me. I'll also communicate to let you know if I'm having a problem and would expect some flexibility and kindness from you.

If you are swapping with me and there is drama around things, don't be surprised if you can no longer contact me. I will block you without hesitation to save myself from your drama. I want to have fun and easy times here on Swapbot, not drama. It's nothing personal; it's about self-preservation.

I won't create a list for those who have not sent or not rated on my profile. I will call those people out through the rating, in public forums and on their profiles. I won't have my profile filled up with negatives. It's just how I'm choosing to do it.

Most importantly, enjoy Swapbot, the people you meet and the goodies that come your way! Let's create good Karma out there.
