About Me

I am a happy mail fanatic. I promise to send and rate for all swaps!

Comment: Thanks for the lovely PC and your list. Labor pains were something I only witnessed. While I wish I could have comforted my wife more -- let's be honest here -- I'm glad it wasn't me.
Comment: I’d love to learn Spanish as well! I’ve forgotten the little I did learn 😔
Comment: *hugs* I'm so sorry for your loss, but I'm glad you're able to find some calm.
Comment: Thank you for the extra card.

Chaosfay rated for WPS - Writing Prompt Postcard #9 on Nov 21, 2018
Comment: Due to lack of communication and you haven't sent nothing I have to rate you a 1. If you do resend and I finally receive it I'll rerate you a 3. 11/21/18 - I've raised it to a 3. I, too, am recovering from a family death and dropped from several swaps as well as communicated with those I was already in swaps with to let them know things may be late. Thank you for contacting me regarding this.
Response: 11/21/18: I apologize for the lack of communication and for the failure of swap. I am dealing with the unexpected death of my husband, who was only 48 years old. Many things took a back seat to my grief including Swap-Bot. I hope you can see from other ratings I am not a flaker. I realize this is many months late, but I will send a replacement. Thank you.
