Just to let you all know...
For various personal reasons, I'm quitting the community.

It's been really fun, but I just don't have the energy anymore.

I'll keep whoever wants to remain on my friends list, even tho I know some of you don't have me friended to begin with, if you want to stay or go, just let me know.

*hands the reins back over to mamapduck*

Peace out, y'all.

Running late again
I really suck at this "on time" thing, don't I?

Work has been crazy. 11 hour days have meant no opportunity to get to the post office. My box to Spooky is going out Tuesday because Monday is a holiday and Friday (when it was already tardy) I took a 20 minute lunch which consisted of an Atkins bar, a diet soda and a potty break.

Of course, if I didn't wait until the last minute, this wouldn't be an issue, would it?

Anyway, it's coming. I have a mandatory post office trip scheduled for Tuesday at lunch and that box is among the outgoing parcels. I hope it will be worth the wait.

Random mail
Got another little random mail from Xoraclex yesterday. Hello Kitty rocks! I've been laying low a lot lately and the little pick me up was really nice. Been a rough couple weeks but everything is getting better now.

This is a late post--life is nuts right now! (The wedding is less than 3 weeks away--AAAAAAUUGGGHHHHH!!!)


Got my March package from xoraclex several weeks ago. It is awesome!

In it were, among other things: a soy ginger pedicure kit, a lavender growing kit, a custom mix CD (which is AWESOME!), pocky and other Japanese sweets which are all long gone, vintage fridge magnets with clever sayings on them, a pad of kitty notepaper, green apple scented hand soap and hand lotion *drool!*, and more stuff that I can't remember because my brain no longer works.

Favorite item? Tie between the lavender kit--because I know she hates lavender, so it was a big deal for her to give it as a gift--and the pedicure kit, which I have already used and absolutely loved!

YAY!

Package Arrival
I got my package from damuddymeg It was beautiful.

It had knee-socks with skulls with bows on them! And lots of Hello Kitty stuff, including body glitter and a stationery making kit. I got lots and lots of candy necklaces and bracelets, some trail mix, some carmel popcorn with lots of fancy nuts in it, some gourmet licorice from Australia, lots of Fun-Dips, several candles that smell DEE licious, some glow in the dark space things to stick to my ceiling (I shared those with Tom so we could be under the same starry sky), a tee-shirt that lets me display my love of books (and it is great), lots of packing peanutses, glowsticks/necklaces/bracelets/rings/earrings/eyeglasses.

With this box alone, I'm ready to go to a rave. :D

I don't know what my favorite thing is yet. I wore the socks and they were very comfy, and I'm about half-way through the bag of licorice (but I did share...a little bit) (no, you can't have any!) I opened the stationery set, and I'm really excited to start on it, and I've been using my vanilla lip balm. MmmMMmmMmmMmMMMMmMmMmMmMmMmM... MMMM!

Thanks Meg!!!!

Sound off!
Who has not got or sent their package for March yet?

I haven't gotten anything, and I've been checking with my mom every week. I told her to be on the lookout, but so far nothing.

If there are substantial problems please contact our mod, mamapduck and let her know what's going on. I organized the list this time but she's got THE POWER.

Better late than pregnant?
My box to Carmenvitae went out Friday because I suck. Yes, I was late. :( I let life get out of hand and failed to manage my time well as a result. I did send it priority, so it should be arriving quickly.

1) What month is this package for?
March

2) Who sent you the package?
spookshow1313

3) What are the contents?
Oh my, let me think... (doing this from memory as my mom unpacked my box and "put everything away").
Books! Tons of them. I'd say there were at least 10. The subjects were mostly to do with childcare and pregnancy, and nursing! PLETHORA! YAY!
Smell goods - yummy bath stuff and soaps! and lotions! (One lime verbena set was opened immediately and used).
Baby stuffs - cute outfit with duckies on it, and a hand puppet which is a big hit around here, let me tell you!
Strawberry fruit drink mixes, which my hubby and boys used before I got to taste it.
Tea! Yummy yummy tea! (I protected this with my life)
Candles (including probably the yummiest vanilla ones I've ever smelled)
Glucose tablets

I know there's more, I'm probably forgetting something important, but it's been a while and I've had a baby since then (I haven't slept since then! ;))


4) What's your favorite item in the box?
The handpuppet is narrowly beating out the books.

5) Which item surprised you the most?
The books - the quantity and variety. There were a few that have been on my "want" list for a while.

Let me tell you, when I was opening this box it was like the neverending box of wonders. There was SO MUCH in there. [geek reference] It was like reaching into a large bag of holding [/geek reference].

Current Mood: grateful

End of the week.
That's the deadline if you haven't shipped out your package for March yet.

Anyone who wants to should sound off if you haven't sent or received your package yet.

If you've got your bundle of goodies and you haven't done so yet, remember to fill out the quiz to let people know your package arrived safely!

I hope spring is treating you all well. The weather here in Ohio is finally starting to get warm.

Got all my package shopping done this weekend and received my box from Carmenvitae today. I am again, slow on mailing. I WILL have it out in the next two days though.

1) What month is this package for?
March

2) Who sent you the package?
Carmenvitae

3) What are the contents?
Strawberry Pie scented pillar candle
Little packs of tissues in cute packages- I love these but never buy them for myself, dunno why.
Little pink notebook with quote on the front. The pages are pink too. :)
Avon foot brush
Book- Truth or Tabloid :)
Anne Geddes art book- Down In the Garden
Body polisher sponge
Cute phone book
Dora the Explorer stickers (Hah! I bet she thinks I'm gonna share with my kid!)
Pink glow necklace
Dove lotion
Shamrock baking cups
Cincinnati postcards
Spiffy purple keychain nail clippers
Bubbles! In a cool bottle! With a turtle in it!


4) What's your favorite item in the box?
Ahem. I repeat. "With a *turtle* in it!

5) Which item surprised you the most?
Truth or Tabloids. One of my guilty pleasures (which I will deny later) is sneaking a peek at tabloids when I'm shopping alone. I love that crap. :) It's like deep fried twinkies for the brain.


The box also had stickers all over it. :) And a note which included recommendations of a book, a cd, a website and a movie.

Thank you, thank you!

Mmm... goodness
I'm currently sipping on my mug of tea from the last batch of Taylor's darjeeling that kerinda sent me back in October.

I hope she likes the Twinings tea I sent her, but I can understand if she hasn't gotten around to it due to the busy-ness of having a beautiful new baby boy!

The other reason for this post is to wish everyone happy St. Patty's Day and to remind everyone we're about halfway through March so you officially have two weeks left to "git'r done" for the package swap if you haven't started yet.

Also remember to fill out the quiz reposted hereCollapse ) when you receive a package.

Since some of you will be on spring break soon, I hope it gives you a chance to relax and enjoy life!

Frienditto
If anyone on this list is using Frienditto I need you to speak up now. It creates a vulnerability in this community that is a safety issue. Specifically, it allows the potential for locked posts (like all our addresses, ladies) to be taken public. I have a serious personal safety issue that makes this not okay and I'm sure no one else would be much happier about such a situation.

Kerinda had her baby!
And I believe Carmenvitae has more details. What I'm getting is that mother and son are okay, although he is small (5 pounds 11 ounces) and things were a little worrisome. C, care to share more?

Current Mood: happy

Well crud. This was unexpected....
kerinda *might* get her package this week, if Ash doesn't eat all the tape off of it first.

I hope you don't mind a box that's been licked on and chewed by a kitty.
