HURRAY! in the last 2 weeks I got a job and a roommate! I got rid of 2 minivan loads of debris to charity from my cleared out storage and the apartment (you collect lots o' stuff living alone for 11 years :-)) Things are really settling down finally for me! Now that I have the home front back under control my creativity is getting going again. I'm catching up slow but steady!
Huggles and Happy holidays!
Dear Swap-Bot friendsâ€¦I checked out for a while. I decided I didnâ€™t want to be â€œhereâ€ (this planet) and went to bed. I did not actively try to damage myself, I just didnâ€™t care about anything any more. I did nothing, no house keeping, bathing, litter box cleaning, laundry, email (no internet temporarily for bill non-payment), I stopped taking my meds, didnâ€™t look for a jobâ€¦ etc etc etc. The only things that did get done were the animals getting fed and my niece to and from school.
My mom showed up from Southern Cal and my sister stepped in and off I went to the therapist. My meds have been tweaked and Iâ€™m taking them correctly and I have a roommate moving in a week. I have gotten out of bed and rejoined the living :-)
I am dropping out of all my unassigned swaps and will be making good on the ones I owe. I also have several weeks of mail I have not even looked at so I will be rating as soon as I start going through the pile.
Please be patient with me while I regroup and get my defecation collected. I know my problems are not yours and I am very sorry that you got caught up in it. Please email me directly with any concerns or issues you have with me. I will respond. kerre_ reese_ [email protected]
Several folks have PM'd me to say they haven't gotten their goodies from me If you are expecting something from me let me know ASAP if it hasn't arrived in a timely manor - I like my good rating and want to keep it that way!!!.
No job yet but I do get unemployment! I'm sending out as monies come in - mostly from small art sales right now. I'll let folks know if I'm running behind.
I went into work today and was told as of 10/31 my company will no longer be employing me. So I will be sending things out as I have the funds and I'll be letting my partners know. sigh I am ready for this year to be over!
------------------10/12/08------------------------------ Computer issues at home have been remedied! Now, if I can get the DSL back up and running at work!
Now that I have access to addresses again everything will be sent on Monday! I'll be PM-ing every one too!

On a more personal note, I'm a 44 yr old single (happily divorced), childless by choice, liberal, happy, backpacking, bibliophile, former historical costumer & Ren Fair Brat, Pagan woman who loves to cook, garden, play with her 4 rescued Manx Cats and Pembroke Welsh Corgi and has better things to do with her time than keep a spotless house.
Also on mycorgi.com page I have videos of Chloe the Manx walking Willie the corgi
Loreena mckennitt, Most anything Celtic including bagpipes (my Da plays)& sound tracks, world music, Gypsy Kings, The Corrs, Kiss...... and I can't even begin to list them all sigh Pretty much anything but rap and country

No cable and thats the only way to get any TV so I go to my sisters on Friday night to catch up on CSI-Vegas and Battlestar Galactica and thats it.
Well as my very formal bio states I do a little bit of everything. and lots of stuff I want to try. Last crocheting I did were potholders with a skull on them to practice chart reading. I also bead something I call SunChimes, also called Garden Jewelery. It uses small mosaic mirrors and stained glass as well as glass beads and metal charms and bells. Next I want to try needle felting. Oh and I'm currently on a soft sculpture Goddess doll kick - ACK!! I just discovered ATC's I'm doomed!
I am a bright bold color person not usually soft pastels or patterns. I definitely do NOT do pink as a main color. My bedroom is currently blue and white, my Kitchen is white with blue and copper accents and lots of chickens & roosters and my living room right now is mostly navy and gold with multiple red accents. I have one room that has nothing but filled bookcases floor to ceiling and more books stacked on the floor :-)
Love Purples and greens and blue reds more than the yellow reds
I am crocheting baby blankets, hats, scarves, mittens and slippers from donated scrap yarn to send to the troops in Afghanistan. From there they are distributed to the Afghanis in need. Most of the things are made from multiple bits of yarn, so they end up looking like a crazy quilt - no 2 are alike
