About Me

July 26, 2022. My Mom passed away from Leukemia early this morning. Please have some patience and understanding. My family is 4 hours away and I need to attend to certain needs there.

May 18, 2022. Roselyn arrived this afternoon, making me a Nana.

March 14 2022. I have been sworn in as the new Township Treasurer and also the Secretary to the Supervisors.

3-2-22. I received 15 pieces of mail today from this group. Made this gal very happy. Feeling the love.

12-29-21. Home safely and going thru my mail. By tomorrow, it all should be done. Happy Holidays Everyone.

11-29-21. I will be in Michigan until December 28th, unless ice/snow keeps me from driving home. Happy Holidays to Everyone!

11-15-21 I am finally going to be a Grandma... and to a little girl. Due date is May 21.

July 4th, Youngest son had stitches in the ER. Then on July 10th, my husband needed stitches in the ER. Gosh, these boys of mine..shaking head.

May 6, 2021 2nd dose administered and no side effects. Woo-hoo.

April 19, 2021 1st dose for Covid-19 vaccine. 12 hours later, no side effects.

March 13, 2021. We have embraced an elderly kitty named Star into our home.

My wish for 2021, is for others to consider, just for a moment, what another person may be going thru quietly. Even when asked, they may not share (as in my case).

Spread friendship, smiles and a positive vibe to everyone you meet. Remember how someone like that makes you feel...and keep passing it along. This world is a wonderful place with YOU in it.

Sept '20. Diagnosed with Lyme Disease.

May 4, 2020. Updated my mailing address to be our home in Pennsylvania.

April 29, '20 Closing on our new Pennsylvania home. We cant believe this dream is finally coming true.

2-20-2020. We found a home in Clarington (Forest County,) PA surrounded by woods and wildlife. Husband starts his new job with the FAA March 15th. Excited and nervous about the transition.

02/17/2020. Mailed my 1000th swap today.

January 19, 2020. Looks like 2020 will be quite an adventure for us. New job, moving back to Pennsylvania, new home etc. Blank slate and ready to fill it up.

2019 is passing so quickly. Fall is here and brought along pleasing cooler weather.

Updated August 6, 2018. My son has a beautiful bride. Their wedding was full of emotions. I cried happy tears when she walked down the aisle, said their vows, and danced the son-mother dance. I am so proud of them. Memorable items that happened were: The fire alarm went off in the church during the reception (deafening) and the mens bathroom toilet actually cracked and water flooded out into the reception (was it that person ate too much earlier? LOL ) All in all, I can say it was the best wedding I have ever attended. Congrats to Amy and Ben (Aug 4, 2018)

***OMG I am giving a gigantic praise to @Pianoheart for a surprise of 21 cassette tapes. (yes, I wrote 21) She did not know this, but my husband lived in Hawaii for 6 years and she sent alot of Hawaiian music. She is a true blessing and a wonderful soul. I cannot thank her enough for sending such joy to us.

I finished my 500th swap on Sept 8th 2017. Am having so much fun sending out smiles to everyone.

May all have a very blessed 2017

My newest niece, Amelia Love McDivitt was born on 7-20-16. So tiny and perfect.

On Mothers Day '16, My oldest son, Ben proposed to his girlfriend of 5 years. She said YES. I will be so happy to have her for a daughter. Sweet, kind and loving. (Their wedding took place Aug '18)

*** If you don't receive a swap from me when I note that I sent it, please notify me ASAP so I can resend it. It is not my personality to flake. Never have, and don't intend to start. My word is my bond. Swapping means too much to me to flake. I LOVE bringing joy to others.

Born and raised in the countryside of Lancaster County, PA (amongst horse & buggies and rolling hills). Lived/studied in Dusseldorf, Germany (1988) Also did the Eurorail (it was a 30 day long train travel pass in which I backpacked through 10 countries) that summer (to celebrate my 20th birthday). 1990-1991 lived in Figueira da Foz, Portugal. Settled back in Lancaster in '91 and got married. Divorced in 2010 after 19 years. Found love again in 2011 and married Justin in 2012. Lived in Michigan from 2012 till 2020. It is when I signed up for swap-bot, hence my name Misplaced from PA. In the spring of 2020, Justin got a new job that took us back to Pennsylvania, but this time into the mountains. We are very excited about it. I have 3 children, Ben (1995) Alexis (1996) and Troy (2002). We have several cats. Prissy and Luna are currently living with my daughter but will find their way to Pennsylvania by the Fall 2021. Star resides with us currently, getting used to her new home.

In my spare time I enjoy walking, baking/cooking new recipes, flower gardening (I have a friendship garden that I have gotten transplants from many friends--you can add too it if you like), traveling, Atlantic Beach Time, antique and thrift store shopping, swapping almost anything and pen paling internationally.

I wear size 7 or 7 1/2 shoes, 5 ft tall since 6th grade and funsize in life. Long hair which I enjoy wearing up. I am all natural--no hair dye (love my silver streaks life has highlighted me with), no make up (though I may be seen with mascara or blush), no tattoos and only have my ears pierced once (seems odd now days).

I enjoy www.wheresgeorge.com with my user name Michelle His Belle.

I play PoGo (Pokemon Go) with my youngest son. Here is my code to friend me. 5434 1049 0105

I also am a part timer in Geocaching. My name there is Mstracker. I go with my brother when I visit him and he tracks them and I just totally forget too. I gotta change that!

My favorite holiday is Christmas. I decorate immensely. I mail out over 200 Christmas cards. If you mail me one, I always mail a return. It is always a pleasure meeting new people.

Thank-you for taking the time to get to know me. Hopefully I can get to know you. Peace and Love.

Favorite Music

I listen to Country, Pop and Classical (we have this on while we eat dinner). I don't like RAP or Jazz. Lately, I have been listening to Celtic and New Age music to write my pen pals. It's very calming to the soul.

** I have been listening to NPR and also books on CD.

On a short note

I am extremely easy to please. I prefer quality over quantity. And LOVE unique items found in gift stores or gently used items from a consignment/thrift store. To get a hand written note or short letter with my swaps mean the world to me--letting me realize you targeted me and not just the swap requirements.

Postcard Preference

I am starting to enjoy these. I really like touristy and unique ones. Funny ones catch me and I place them on my wall to enjoy all year. I also like holiday cards (Easter, Christmas etc). At this time, I have no dislikes.
