Shipping Issues

4/19/17:Also I recently found a bag of mail from when we moved last year so I also have slowly been going thru that so if I suddenly rate you for something from 2015 or 2016 that's why. It was in a box that wound up in my storage room with my portable nebulizer, back ups of all of my medications and so important documents. I've been looking for that box for a year and thankfully finally found it. Yahoo !!!!!

4/10/17: I'm slowly getting thru my mail from the last 3 weeks so please have patience with me. Btwn illness and holiday preparation I've been a little behind.

3/6/17: I recently found a bag of swaps from the summer/fall 2016 so this weekend I've started updating the swaps. So if you see an old rating from me that's why. I deeply apologize for that. I hope by next weekend to have all past and current swaps updated. I'm so sorry for the delay in rating.

If you don't get any swaps from me please message me before rating. I almost always send on time and I try to message if I'm going to be late. I don't mark sent until after a swap has left my hand, phone or computer. Though after that time I have little control with what happens to it.

I suffered a severe illness 3 years ago where I spent 12 weeks in the ICU and then 6 months in rehabilitation recovering. Though I'm 75% recovered I do still have issues walking, with my memory and continued seizures. Therefore though I was finally able to return to work last year on modified duty I still travel by paratransit. Also I occasionally do wind up in bed or worst hospitalized and therefore without internet access for a few days.

Since I can't make it to the PO anymore my mother does almost all of my mailing for me so the day that I mark something mailed is the day that I give it to her but she sometimes does not make it to the PO for 2 or 3 business days so please understand that the day I mark something mailed is the day that I give it to her to mail but she might not mail it for another day or 2

Also I live in a low income urban community. The mailboxes in the building are not secure so I get all of my mail sent to a PO BOX but I can only check it on Saturdays and if its a busy weekend then it might take me a few days to get thru my mail

Also the PO has the bad habit of putting mail into the wrong boxes. So sometimes I have mail especially postcards disappear. I've spoken to them about this but they deny it happening though I have gotten other people's mail in my box before too. So if I haven't rated something in 2 weeks after you've sent it please contact me to follow up

The same goes for outgoing mail. Sometimes it takes major detours so please contact me if you haven't received a swap within 2 weeks since it was sent. Please contact me before giving me a negative rating. I'm desperately trying to raise my score up but have had no success due to problems with the mail.

My email account tends to sometimes trash things without me seeing them so please send all pinterest and email swaps (unless the swap says otherwise) to my swap-bot account.

5/1/17: Also a couple of months ago something went wrong with my email and I was unaware of it but it began sending all my outgoing mail into an outgoing folder instead of sending it. A few weeks ago I discovered this problem and updated my password and my email then sent out all of the messages that were pending in my outgoing mailbox. So it made it look like some messages including some swaps were "sent late" when they were actually originally "sent" on time but they just didn't leave my mailbox on time. I have since updated my password and I think that that fixed the problem but if you still haven't received a email or pinterest swap from me on time please drop me a swap-bot message.

Also I know pinterest swaps are supposed to be done by computer but during the week the only computer I usually have access to is my work computer which allows me to access swap-bot but not pinterest. Though I can access pinterest from my phone but not swap-bot. I love doing pinterest swaps though so I'd love to continue doing them though I can only do them thru email but now that my email issue is fixed it should be running smoothly. I have an amazon fire now so that problem has basically been fixed now.

Favorite Books

I love chick lit, Christian fiction, cozy mysteries and memoirs especially parenting or medical ones. The best books I've read recently are The Real Life of a Pediatrician (Kaplan Voices: Doctors) and Coming Back To Me by Caroline Leavitt

Favorite Movies and Music

I love romantic comedies. My favorite movies are Just Wright, Love and Basketball, Crazy/ Beautiful, Grease, Dirty Dancing, You've Got Mail and Save the Last Dance

I love R&B and 80s/90s music. Back when the lyrics actually made sense

Favorite Television

I love reality shows, some comedies and medical based shows. My favorite shows are ER, NYMed, Friends, Facts of Life, Family Ties, Small Wonder, Doogie Howser, Mad About You, Blackish, Modern Family, SVU, 19 Kids and Counting, Kate Plus 8, Raising Hope, Guys with Kids, Baby Daddy, The Chew, Chopped, Guys Grocery Games, Food Network Star. And yes I know majority of those show are now off the air but that's because there are few good shows on the current line up. And I've recently discovered and become addicted to Chicago Med. It's ER all over again. Also recently discovered Chicago Fire and Chicago PD.

Favorite Crafts

I used to scrapbook and make cards and bookmarks all the time but lately I just haven't found the time to do it. Though I did make my own Christmas cards again a couple of years ago. Once I get my living room organized I want to start cardmaking again and possibly scrapbooking since I have nothing done past the first 3 months of my daugher's life because that's when I fell ill. I love stickers especially chipboard, cardstock 3D or dimensional ones. I've started to get into ATC's and pocket letters (thanks to swap-bot) and really enjoying them. So I can always use 2x3 papers for them and tiny alphas, washi tape and other small embellishments

Comment: Melissa I felt that I did get to know you as a human by the answered questions you were willing to share, I've been to a Brooklyn and it was as a visitor in NYC and I liked getting around the area. I was not able to meet many people while I was there and it might have been fun to meet some people and have had a meal with them to see how others live in their comfort zone! This helped me to do that without leaving my home. Thank you!
Response: Next time you come to Brooklyn as a visitor let me know. I'd be glad to show you around.
