About Me

06/12/2022 This past weekend was another overload of emergencies. My father inlaw had emergency surgery and ended up in a coma, he lives 2 hours away so my husband and I went to go be with him. Then while I was there found out that my niece, nephew, brother, and dad have COVID. My dad is 70 so my stress level to say the least is high. I reached out to my swap partners to let them know I was a day late in mailing. Thank you all for your understanding. I hope one day most of our lives are calm and uneventful. Take Care everyone and hug your loved ones.

05/16/2022 Update my entire family got COVID, 2 1/2 years into the pandemic. First, it was my son and daughter-in-law (still at home), then my mom and stepdad, and now my niece. I took care of everyone except my niece with her mom. I'm proof that if you wear a mask and wash your hand you can keep it at bay. Needless to say I'm exhausted. All swaps have gone out on the day due but they may have got to the mailbox late for pick up. I'm very behind in rating, but I promise I will catch up.

thank you for all your understandings.

01/23/2022 Nothing will ever be normal again, but I've come to accept this rollercoaster and get back to snail mail and swaps. as you can see the last time I was on here I met all my swaps just trying to get back to a 4.99 ratings.

9/23/2020 My life had other plans for me this past year, nothing seems to be the same but I'm back on the road to find what the new normal is. I've reached out to every single person for swaps I missed and will continue to make things right. I need to get back into swapping it brought so much joy to my life and I need a little joy right now.

Thank you for reading and Happy Swapping.

I like learning new things.

I'm spontaneous, loud and loyal.

I'm a night owl that hates mornings.

My Off the wall collection: Coffee Mugs When I prefer Ice Tea

I'm HORRIBLE at grammar and all things that come with that. To think I was almost a teacher too.

Comment: Thanks for the swap and the fine quote. We don't ever think of endings as being new beginnings... until we look back on them much later.
