    I sent my sp package out. Please when it arrives check to see if it contains a ring. I lost my engagement ring and am just devastated. We have back tracked everywhere looking for it. Ill be gone for vacation, but will check in as soon as I return.

    Sorry to hear this. Perhaps it slipped off whilst you were packing and may turn up in your suitcase? Try and enjoy your vacation.

    Thanks
    Yesterday I woke to my normal morning fluttering to start laundry and ironing and realized my engagement ring is not on my finger. I'm devastated. We have unpacked and checked everywhere. Will move major appliances after vacation. But please if you pray, please pray I find it. I cried all day yesterday just thinking about it. I made a police report in case it's turned into a pawn shop, put an add in the paper. It could be anywhere.

    See you all after vacation if I don't stop back on the way to the ship. Ill need to get my last iPhone fix in for 10 days. Lol

    this is my first time in the swap so look forward to many more and receiving my package and sending out a package.

    Off Topic:
    I wanted to give you all an update on my husband. This is day 27 in the hospital. He will be going home soon, but not sure just when that will be. We have the entire picture of what happened to him. He has h pylori bacteria in his stomach which caused an ulcer to develop at the duodenum. He got sludge in his gall bladder which caused a bad case of acute pancreatitis. On day 10 of hospital stay his ulcer perforated and he had emergency surgery. His blood pressure went dangerously low during surgery, then went really high post surgery. He has struggled with high blood pressure and crazy blood sugars since then. Drainage tubes, cat scans, tons of meds and tests. Now he has a feeding tube, which he will go home with. We had the birth of our first grandchild the day after he was admitted to hospital. Mama had to have a c section, so I was back and forth between two different hospitals for 3 days. Mama and baby are wonderful and settled at home with Daddy and Auntie. They are holding down the fort while we are at the hospital. Thanks to all of you who have been praying. He is getting better, but it is a long, show process. He has lost nearly all muscle mass. But he is alive and will be coming home! Hopefully, I will be getting back to the swap in May or June. I really miss it. Now all I get in the mail are bills:/

    Mailed both SP packages this morning - one went westward and the other eastward - no, that's wrong, one went eastward and the other southward. Yep, that's it - east and south. One to a state that used to have a big Air Force base that for some reason I wanted to go to - never did, but wanted to. Let's see - zips 15 and 12 or 6 and 3 for Krystyna. BOth have dogs, both read and both gave me a specific item wanted - hopefully I fulfilled that wish.
    This clue could be me. I'm south of Tennessee, leave near a huge Air Force base and my zip adds up to 15. Gotta be me.

    Just hang tight. If it is in your SP box, I'm sure it will be returned. Meanwhile, turn out the lights at night and shine a flashlight everywhere slowly along the floor. I have found two missing diamonds this way. I hope you find it wherever it is.

    Clue #4: favorite color red

    Well, Fayzer, yes, you have a big Air Force base, but I never wanted to live in Florida. Wrong state there.

    Okay clues:
    SP #1- You asked for something unique for your kitchen.
    SP #2- This is your first SWAP.

    SP1 loves coffee...... and who doesn't
    SP2 loves hot chocolate..... and who doesn't

    My package goes out tomorrow...I had to go get the right size envelope..it is going out of the USA...far, far away. I think I could put her name here as I have never seen her post at all. Wonder how she found the swap?????

    ASH...I am wishing along with everyone on this thread you find your engagement ring. I would be terribly sad if I lost anything my husband gave me.

    Is doing the happy dance. My secret pals have gifts that keep on coming. Both Secret Pal #1 and Secret Pal #2 will get a delivery today, but it is only a little piece of your gifts.

    Probably just gave myself away, but I that's okay, cuz do not know what else is coming their way.

    SP #1- You joined the SWAP in January of 20??

    SP #2- You like batiks
