About Me

Updated 2/16/19:


I saw the doctor on Tuesday 1/22/19. I'm suffering from a rotator cuff injury (after a nasty fall in November) and was given exercises to do at home. I will slowly start back into doing swaps in February. But I will no longer be doing the number of swaps that I used to do. I used to do 20 swaps every month. I have made a decision to cut back on a permanent basis. I'm not getting any younger and cannot do as much as I used to do. I hope everyone understands.

I am a founder or co-founder in the following groups. If you are interested in any of these groups, please send a request to join. Thank you!

My Dear Yvonne, I think of you often and hope you are resting & healing. I miss swapping with you, but your health comes first! It was 9 degrees when I woke up this morning, with a windchill factor of -9, luckily the car started so I could get out & pick up Mom’s new prescription. It was a quick trip, believe me! If all goes well for you, we’ll see you back in February. Sending you warm get well wishes & lots of creative ideas.
