On November 24, 2019, I became a first-time grandma. Meet Ms. Amelia Kait:
Hi. I'm Susan. My Bday is September 25, 1972.
I'm a divorced mother of 3. I have a teenaged daughter who lives at home with me. My son is almost 20 and lives with his girlfriend and my eldest daughter is in her 20's and lives with her fiance and their baby Amelia.
I am an elementary school teacher.I teach 4th grade.
At one time I was extremely active on Swap-bot, but once I started teaching I limited most of my swapping to Summer and holidays. With the current Covid-19 situation and the stay at home orders in place, I have resumed my swapping for the time being.
**** I love swap-bot and want to make all swaps a good experience for everyone. I send out all my swaps on time (if I am going to be late for an unseen reason I will PM you).
If you do not receive something please PM me prior to rating and if something has been lost in the mail I will send a replacement.
About Rating: It is my intention to rate every swap I receive. Please PM with the name of the swap and what you sent if for some reason I do not rate something that you have sent.
I listen to so many different genres of music on any given day from contemporary Christian to Popular to Country to Rap. It depends on my mood.
I like all types of books. I like historical Christian romance quite a bit. I also enjoy Nora Roberts, Luanne Rice, Danielle Steel, etc... I love the all the books in the Twilight series and am about to start reading them again. *** My newest favorite authors are Beverly Lewis and Wanda Brunstetter*** I love reading the Amish Christian fiction a few years ago: last year discovered YA fiction and read the Hunger Games series and some other YA fiction that I really enjoyed. Update: I still like the books above but I recently read some Jodi Picoult that I really enjoyed. I don't have much time for fiction right now that I am teaching. I think reading fiction will be mostly a summer thing. 4/2017- I found another favorite author Robyn Carr- and I read fiction during the school year still. :-)
Twilight, The Thing Called Love, Stand By Me, Breakfast Club, The Notebook, Dirty Dancing, The Sound of Music, Frozen. (those are just some of my favorites)
Updated 4/19/2020: I have been binge-watching quite a bit lately. Some new finds: The Fosters, Umbrella Academy, Manifest, Outlander, Station 19, The Good Doctor, This is Us, Colony.

4/19/2020- I am not really collecting anything right now. I am trying to limit the "stuff" in my life. If a swap calls for sending something, then my ABC's of me section might give you some ideas.
If you are going to send extras I would prefer things that I can use in other swaps, like notecards, postcards, stickers to use as decorations, etc. Thanks.
Thai Artichokes Swedish Pancakes Sushi
Dislikes: mushroom (the food) but I think mushroom stickers are kind of cute.
Other food dislikes are anything sweet mixed with nuts- I like some nuts separate but never mixed with something like chocolate or ice cream. (occasionally I will eat a snickers bar- but that is it.)
