I am a 42 year old woman from the suburbs of Chicago (although I have now been transplanted in the middle of Michigan) married to my perfect match. I LOVE to receive snail mail. I took some time off from swapping due to a cancer diagnosis and treatment. I'm slowly starting to get involved in my activities again.
I am a veterinary technician and I have been in the business for 21 years. I have definitely found my calling.
I'm interested in so many things it's hard to list them all here, but I also love to learn about new things. I'm quite a tomboy but do have occasional "girly" tendencies!
If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a message! Thanks for taking the time to read this. =)
IF YOU DON'T RECEIVE A SWAP FROM ME, PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE RATING. WHILE THE POST OFFICE IS USUALLY GREAT, OCCASIONALLY IT WILL TAKE THEM A WHILE TO GET A PACKAGE MOVING, ESPECIALLY OUTSIDE OF THE U.S. I ALWAYS SEND MY SWAPS (being flaked on stinks) AND WILL RESEND IF SOMETHING GOES MISSING.
I love all kinds of music, I guess it would be easier to list what I don't like. No opera and no gangster rap.
An eclectic mix of some of the artists I like: POS, Dessa, Doomtree, Nickelback, American Fangs, John Mellencamp, Millipede, John Mayer, Duran Duran, Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, Staind, Red, Papa Roach, Maroon 5,
