Well I can't say I'm not partially at fault for this 1 rating. I didn't get the swap out on time and then I got sick and spaced it. I was quite sick for over 2 weeks. When I was finally able to get out of the house I mailed off the swap. I know I was late mailing it out and can't say I don't deserve the rating, but of course I don't want it. My partner only contacted me once about the recipes and that was a day or two after the swap was supposed to be mailed off with a comment on my profile. She hasn't contacted me since saying she never received them. I sent her a message when I got the rating and told her I'd send another set of recipes.
Hi, my name is Heather. I am 26 , my birthday is February 4 and I am an Aquarius. I am married to one of the greatest men in the world. His name is Steven and he is also 26. We have been married 7 wonderful years. Our anniversary is April 13th. We live in a small apartment in a small town in California called Montague. We live with our 4 cats(Snafu, King Tut, Gomez Fattoms, and Mew). We want children, but at this time God has not blessed us with any. He works at Carl's Jr and I just graduated from College of the Siskiyous with my Associates in Business: Office Assistant. I am scared and excited for what the future now holds for me. It will be an adventure that I'll never forget. My mother(djmom11) introduced me to this site. I absolutely love it now. I don't have a lot of money so there are a lot of swaps that I would love to do but just can't so I've been sticking to the email swaps and small swaps that don't cost a lot. But it's so much fun. I love getting emails and letters from people I've never met and get to learn about them.
I love music. It has been in my blood since I was very young. I have always had a passion for singing and playing an instrument. While in grammar school I joined my first choir and band. I fell in love with it right away. I miss singing with a big group, but unfortunately there are more important things to focus on these days. I love all kinds of music. There are several songs from each genre that I like. My favorite genre, though, is country. I will always be a country girl at heart. Some of my favorite artists are Martina McBride, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift, and the list goes on and on.
I love to read. I have been reading some good ones lately too. The most recent book I finished was called "Wednesday's Child." I cannot remember who wrote it, but it was a great book. I suggest reading it. I also utterly enjoyed the "Harry Potter" series. I picked it up just to see if I could get into it and I couldn't put it down. Some of my favorite authors are Tess Gerritsen, Sue Margolis, and Steven King. I really like to read Medical Murder Mysteries and Superlicious Adult situation type books.
I absolutely love movies. I love getting lost in a different world. I love getting lost in my emotions while watching movies. My husband and I currently own almost 400 movies. We have so many and not enough room. My list of favorite movies is so long......Titanic, Sweet November, Star Wars, Matrix, Grease, Dirty Dancing, Waking Up In Reno, Steel Magnolias, Click, 50 First Dates, The Dark Knight, The Goonies, The Simpsons Movie, The Virgin Suicides, American Beauty, Little Mermaid, Cars, Finding Nemo, Domino, Halloween(the Rob Zombie version), Friday the 13th, American History X, Hair Spray, Bruce Almighty, I am Sam, I am Legend, Pursuit of Happyness, Black Snake Moan, Addams Family, Pretty Woman, Thelma and Louise, It's a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, Speed, Point Break, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Saw I, The Beach, Romeo and Juliet, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Baby Mama, Cry Baby, While You Were Sleeping, 28 Days, Sorority Girls, Hot Chick, Forrest Gump, The Clerks 1 + 2,..................and so so so so so so so many more.
We just recently bought the converter box and a brand new antenna and are now getting 4 channels instead of 2. We now have CBS, FOX, NBC, and I believe ABC. I enjoy watching CSI, CSI:Miami, House, Fringe, Survivor, The Simpsons, Family Guy, King of the Hill, reruns of Friends, Two and a Half Men and many, many more. Some of my favorite channels with some of my favorite shows are CBS, VH1, Food Network, Travel, History, and others.
I get my love of crafting from my mother. She loves to make little things for friends, family, even just around the house. I wish I could croquet like she can, but I've never been able to get the hang of it. I love making jewelry, especially jewelry, and my newest feat is making safety pin bracelets(which is a lot harder than I thought it would be). Our two recent crafts were table top wreaths with candles and luminaries for the walkway on Halloween. Both were very fun.
Along with reading and doing crafts I also like to do crossword puzzles, play video games and online games, shop for friends and family, and I love to collect a few things. I collect anything with Dragonflies or Elephants. I think they are both very beautiful creatures. I also collect wind chimes(I especially like them with jewels that sparkle), snow globes, Thomas Kinkade, incense, and candles. Oh and I LOVE to cook and bake. It seems to make me feel so much better. I have even come up with some of my own recipes, that turned out pretty good, during times that my husband and I have had barely any food in the house and no money. Writing poetry(when it comes to me), reading old love notes and letters, going through old photo albums and scrap books, rummaging through abandoned houses or houses that belonged to someone close who died and finding untold treasures.
My favorite smells include roses, rain on a hot summer day, sunflowers, freshly mowed grass, home baked bread, patchouli, musk, and cucumber melon. My favorite colors include pink, purple, blue. I love my colors to be bold like metallic and neon colors or pale and dainty like pastels. I love all types of animals but my top three favorites are Elephants, cats(big and small especially panthers), and dogs. My favorite dogs are big tough dogs like St. Bernards, Rots, Pit Bulls, and Bull Dogs. Fruits and vegetables are some of my favorite foods to eat. I especially like citrus fruits. Lemons are my all time favorite. I've been known to sit down and eat a whole lemon, rind and all. Most of my friends and family think I'm crazy. Once again I am drawing a blank at the moment. I will add more when they occur to me.
I cannot stand most anime. I don't really understand it and find it very boring. I don't like most oranges, greens, or brown. I find them to be boring colors. One of my least favorite scents is vanilla. So many of my family and friends love the smell and so many candles are made in that scent, I have become very sick of the smell. If it's mixed with something it isn't too bad, especially if the vanilla isn't the most prominent smell. I can no longer stand Tinkerbell or Miley Cyrus. Both have become over commercialized. I see them every where I turn. I cannot stand clothing with cartoon animals or description words such as "juicy". I can't think of anything else at the moment that I dislike. When something pops in my head I'll add it.
MY WISH LIST (and things you can send for a heart):
THESE ARE SOME ITEMS YOU CAN SEND FOR MY HUSBAND THAT WILL EARN YOU A HEART:
YOU CAN ALSO GET A HEART BY SENDING SOMETHING FOR MY 4 FUR BABIES:
DO NOT SEND:
These list will be updated occasionally when I can think of other stuff to add to any of them.
Well unfortunately it happens to all of us and it has recently happened to me. So I have decided to keep a record of all the people who have flaked on me.
Family Gift Box - Send date 5/22/09 - Partner: @mcltweety (host) - She said she sent on 5/29. Package never came. A month later on 6/22 she said she had sent another package. As of today 7/09 I have still not received the package. I find it hard to believe that two packages went missing, plus she's been rated several 1's for other swaps including 2 other flat rate box swaps. - Angel: @kutter01 - Thank you so very much!
Religious ATC - Send date 6/24/09 - Partner: @IzLa - Contacted me saying she will get the swap out, but I have my doubts. It's an ATC it's not that expensive to mail out and doesn't take much time to make.
