About Me

08/22/2022 Hello Happy Swappers.. I hope everyone is doing good. I will be having surgery next week which will more then likely take me off the computer for 2 week possible more. I'm hoping it won't be that long, I don't know if I can be away from swapping that long. I have completed all my swaps and will rate all the mail I have already received this week. So If you haven't gotten rated yet please send me a message. Everyone take care and happy swapping.

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.

Comment: I picked up my mail in the pouring rain and wouldn't you know it, I dropped your letter in the rushing stormwater at the side of the road. But I grabbed it before it went too far and it dried out nicely. I could just read your note! Everything else unharmed. Thanks for the extras - such a nice assortment of paper goodies. I'll send out the book postcard next round!

Comment: Thanks so much! I will pass this on in the next round. I appreciate the extras. Fun stuff!!
Comment: I received the card. Thanks for the swap and the extra. We are well. Looking forward to our condo being done soon, though we probably won't move until spring, it will give us a place to stay on the Cape that doesn't cost a small fortune each night. I hope you recover quickly.
Comment: Hello Elina, thank your for the postcards!
