About Me

My name is Donna and I have been married to Steve for 38 years. We have a grown daughter and son., I am a Christian who strives to show Gods love by the way I live my life. We just adopted a black and white kitten, July 25,2020. We named her Dolly and she is very sweet! I do not smoke and my household is a nonsmoking environment. I like to make cards. I love to ride my bike, and I love to visit places near the ocean. I have been a teachers aide for different schools. My last position was a preschool teachers aide. Loved that job!! Started junior college at 32 years of age and completed 60 credit hours so I could become a teachers aide. I enjoyed school and it was one of the best things I did.


It is official, we are now Grandparents.

Comment: Hi there Donna ! Received your wonderful kitty cat postalette swap today. Thank you! i enjoyed reading every bit of it. That's awesome you also love reading Science Fiction books too ! The Dragon books you told me about. I haven't read any of those. But I'll be sure to check them out. As I love dragon stories! Thank you for the recommendations. I have a couple recommendations for you. That is if you haven't already read them. But they are Dragon Fantastic by Rosalind M. Greenberg and The Dragon's Child ( 2 stories in 1 book) by J. Kathleen Cheney. Both are so Good! As for the Psoriasis Scalp problem you have, I use Neutrogena T-Gel Therapeutic extra strength shampoo. I have Psoriasis all over my entire body & I have to take Cosentyx shots once a month. It helps for the most part.

Comment: Hi Donna, I want to start out this rating with A BIG THANK YOU for your patience in receiving this rating on this swap. Since my surgery, I have had a difficult time, post-op infection, continued slow healing, and GI issues. I really enjoyed swapping with you, so I APPRECIATE your patience. The mail in Colorado continues to move slow, both in and out of the state. PLEASE be Patient with my mail as I never know how it will be handled after I turn it over to the Post Office. Thank you for your beautiful ATC you created for the Tea Party theme.I love the varied items you used on this ATC. I will proudly add your ATC to my ATC Collection. I have had the opportunity to swap with you before on Swap-bot. Over the last 8-9 months, I have met a lot of new swappers, new swappers to sending me a swap for the first time. This first experience has been WONDERFUL! . I look forward to swapping with you more in the future. Until then, HAPPY SWAPPING! Barbara sleepingrover2010
