I am a 49 yr old wife, and mother to a fantastic daughter and a great son. I am also a grandmother to four fantastic grandchildren that I love to spoil to pieces.
I was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder 12 yrs ago after my divorce from a very abusive husband. I have also been diagnosed with ADHD and PTSD. It has been an uphill struggle, but I try to cope with it as best as I can. Some days are better than others. Some days, I just sit and cry. Other days, I am just a happy go lucky, not a care in the world, free spirit. The problem is, you never know what days those will be. Without even realizing it, I will say and do things that can be down right mean and pretty stupid. I don't usually even remember doing it until someone brings it to my attention and I sit and really think about it. I then feel like such a fool, and wonder how I could even say/do some of the things I will say and or do. I can usually feel when I am becoming manic, so it has become a little easier for me to deal with. It has taken years of trial and error with different medications and therapy to get me to the point I am today. (Thank God) I am not trying to make excuses for myself, I just like people to know that every once in a great while "I" am not "me" so please don't take things personal if I happen to come of the wrong way. Please DO message me and bring it to my attention.
I AM A SMOKER! I just want everyone that does swap with me to know this up front. I keep my swap items in a separate room that I do not smoke in.
I have four dogs- 3 Cocker Spaniels and a Rottweiler. I treat them all like my kids. If I can eat it, so can they (shhh) don't tell anyone. I also have 3 cats.
I live in a cute little two bedroom house on the top of a hill in NW Pennsylvania. My husband raises chickens, turkeys, pheasants and quail.
I love shopping, weekend road trips, surfing the internet, spending time with my grandchildren, camping and all animals.
My favorite seasons are Spring and Autumn because of the colors and scents in the air.
I LOVE Sapphire and Amethyst rings, necklaces and bracelets. I never had my ears pierced and have never worn earrings. Vera Bradley purses that are on the larger size are my favorites. I'm one of those women that carries everything but the kitchen sink in her purse. I Enjoy searching resale and thrift stores for unique items and great bargains. I have found some awesome things shopping in them. I Also like going to yard sales and garage sales, flea markets... anywhere I can find a bargain and save money. If I see a clearance rack in a store, you better get out of my way because I'm gonna be all over that!
I have been sponsoring children for Christmas gifts for the past couple of years. Nothing breaks my heart more than to know that an innocent child is going without. I would walk through fire and glass to help a child in need.
I try to be outgoing and friendly towards everyone I meet and I look forward to making new friends here at Swap Bot..
