About Me

My 3 rating: Oct 2020 - Receiver feels swap was mailed late. This was a multiple partner swap. No other partner rated me lower than a five. I have reached out to receiver and host to see what I can do to improve this rating. Receiver is not willing to change rating.

Fair warning to postmark sticklers... I am a Swap-Bot fanatic. I enjoy sending and receiving swaps. Please note I mark swaps as sent the day I put in in the mailbox. This may be after the mail has ran for the day. Sometimes hosts choose Sundays and holidays as mail by dates. And the postal system is not perfect. Please keep all this in mind.

I am a widow. My husband of almost 20 years passed unexpectedly Sept. 2018.

I am a mom and a teacher. I have two daughters, one in college and one in high school. My oldest is studying business administration with a minor in non-profit. Her ultimate dream is to work for a non-profit, specifically the homeless population.

I have a boyfriend. We enjoy grilling and cooking. Please share awesome recipes!

I teach 7th grade social studies.

I have a Yorkie, Gracie.

Comment: thank you. I love the pc
Response: You're welcome. Thanks for the ❤.
Comment: Honestly? I've half joked about changing my name to Celery, legally, but no ♥ It's just a nickname that I use more often than my legal name. And, I feel you! Our Bentley is an absolute menace! We have a tiered planter next to our shed that used to be up against it, but the silly boy kept trying to climb on top of the shed by using it as stairs! Hopefully Gracie has settled down so the two of you can enjoy outside-time again ♥♥♥
Response: Thanks for answering about your nickname! She has stopped going to the shed's ramp. Hopefully whatever was there got to safety. Thanks for the ❤.
