About Me

We are going through a major heat wave in the Pacific Northwest. It was 114 F today & the heat is making me sicker than what I was. I hope everyone is surviving okay!! Supposed to be 111 F - 116 F tomorrow..... Can;t hardly handle this!!

A note to my current partners. I have been really sick since Friday & am a Type 1 diabetic/chronic kidney disease patient so need to go to the ER if I don't start getting better & may be hospitalized so swaps are running a bit behind but I will get them out as soon as I can. Please be patient; I am doing the best I can. Thank you!!

Just a note! I haave been leaving feedback on all of my swaps but for some reason they are not all sticking. If you are missing a rating from me; please let me know & I will go back in & do it again. Sorry for the inconvenience!!

Favorite Television

Don't really tend to watch much tv. I love a lot of shows off of Sy-Fy. The Prodigal Son, Vikings, Walking Dead, Masked Singer, Curse Of Oak Island, Forged In Fire, etc.
