February 3, 2021 Please let me know if you haven't received something from me. I am reconciling and archiving my Nov, Dec and January swaps. I have messaged all US swappers that have not rated me on swaps I have mailed prior to January 15th. If you receive a swap from me, please rate! If not, I will think you haven't recieved the swap and will be contacting you to see if I need to resend.
Update January 2021: It's my BD month! Yay! I have received some follow up with swappers I have mailed items to and some things were seeming to get to their destination, certain states very quickly and some of my swaps have still yet to be received or have a postmark date that is not indicative of when they were dropped into the postal box. PLEASE let me know if you have not received something from me, I will resend immediately. Hau'oli Makahiki Hou!
Update December 21, 2020: I lost my first cousin and a classmate yesterday due to COVID. My cousin was hospitalized in Puerto Rico and my friend had relocated to Utah with his family. WEAR A MASK. PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING. STAY SAFE. Each of these men have families and children that depend on them. They both contracted the virus from work. Be kind to each other and protect your self and your loved ones. I have contacted the one person whose swap went out late.
Rest easy Marco. Akua bless and protect Malu 🙌🏽
Update November 2020:
Aloha Swap-bot 'ohana. I have been gone for a while taking care of my family and juggling being an essential state-worker, helping my 17 year old son with distance learning and caring for my disabled father. My oldest son turned 21 this year and has a son of his own now. My grandson is going to be 6 months old in December. I am blessed that we have been so isolated from Covid, but now the opening up to tourists from the continental US from states who don't have the same restrictions as Hawaii are bringing our states numbers up and my Dad and asthmatic son have to self isolate. Please respect the fact that my son and father are high risk and postpone your vacation or stay in that resort bubble. Mahalo nui!
