I am 40, married and have 2 great kids. My son is 11 and my daughter is 14. I have two cats:one named Oreo,and one named Robin(hood).I used to run a daycare from my home for the last 9.5 years,but decided to close in in November 2012. I was in an office job, but got laid off, and I am now working at a stitching and embroidery place.

I've lived in my city pretty much all my life. I love recycling,and dont mind regifting or second hand items.

Hi, Kim!

Thank you for the postcard of thanks that I received today for the Message in a Bottle (Inter'l!) - Holiday Themed swap I angeled to you. Like I said, though you weren't able to sign up for the swap, I felt bad that you and the underaged double-profiler @happyscrapper123 / @tayl0r153 arranged to swap and she reneged on you. :(

I loved this postcard you sent! My mouth dropped open in surprise when you wrote that you were having a great day so far because it wasn't snowing that day! I forget that others are experiencing snow because we're having Fall and even Spring-like weather today with a high temp of 80 degrees F! I wouldn't mind if it snowed, but that's probably because I don't get to see it too often. I imagine up there in Ontario you see PLENTY! :) Thank you again for the nice gesture of a postcard. It was so kind of you. :)
