    Did you have a coupon? That would explain it.

    Glad the angels are coming to the rescue, but it isn't right that has to happen. Just curious -- what happens to the folks who don't follow through? Are they banned from other swaps? Personally, I believe their names should be posted here as well so we know who they are. It's not that I want to be vindictive, but we have become a rather close-knit group and it seems a little peer pressure might be in order.

    I agree with you Belfrybat, but have gotten in lots of hot water for expressing my opinion. Now I just send because I want to and love to, if I get one back I'm a very happy person, if not I figure they needed it worse than me. Do I still get upset, yes, but not as bad as I use to. Trying to learn to just "let it go". Sometimes harder than it should be, but I am trying.......

    Hi All -
    Power is finally back on!
    Still no package from my second partner, but mail has been delayed getting here a bit by the storms we've had for the last few days.

    Lori- I have been craving fruit lately too...really wanted grapes...2 different grocery stores had no grapes!! you would think it was the middle of winter with the little bit of selection they had...oranges, apples and bananas...that was it! I did find a pineapple at the second store and got that and it was very tasty

    Happy Birthday Wanda Lou!

    On the subject of people who don't come through with their commitments, as a swap hostess, I think we have a way to handle it if only other hostesses would be consistent about it. We have a hostess group and we can actually list members who don't follow through so that others can remove them from their swaps . If there were truly extenuating circumstances we can then update. That way we're not dragging someone through the mud in public. Things happen in life and you want to be fair on both ends -- but we should also be kind.
