    I got the suckers at CVS, they were in the kids medicine section on the bottom shelf in a big bag, they were $5. He eats them instead of sucking on them, but I tried them and they seemed to help, and they dont have that nasty medicine aftertaste.

    Thank you - I had a wonderful birthday celebration with my kids on Sunday, dinner with girlfriends on Monday night and last night my beautiful baby girl and wonderful daughter-in-law took me out for dinner and drinks afterward. The mister gave me a Kindle (the black and white books only); I had been contemplating getting one for the past several weeks and he decided for me; do any of you have one and do you like it better than turning pages in an actual book?
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    Happy B-day and sooooo sorry to be late, you need to let us know!!! As far as the Kindle, I bought my husband a Nook for his b-day and he loves it. Has not read a paperback since. You can buy anything on there you want and cheaper than bookstore price. It's in the machine and not a lot of paper at your house trying to find out where to put it.

    oh but there is something so profoundly special about holding a book. I love paperbacks not hardbacks however hard to hold for me. I think its all about what feels right to you. Once you get the hang of it you might actually love it. Me I buy my books for .50 at the thrift store or use the free library here so kindle no matter how reasonable is going to run me more than a book.

    I am glad you have another group ready to mail. that is exciting. this means we get to start seeing what is being sent. like Christmas a whole bunch of presents waiting to be unwrapped. I am ready I am ready!!!

    We have a whole wall of paper books in our living room, plus another sizable bookshelf in my son's room. We all got Kindles within about a 3 month period and have not bought another paperback since. I love that I can take multiple books with me when we travel without having to worry about space or weight. There is still a place for printed books, especially those that you really love that speak to your soul, but this is so much better for my life. I'm actually rereading the Dune books right now, which I'd never have found together in print at a reasonable price.

    I just bought a Kindle Fire (2nd - hand) and am trying to figure out how to work it. Have downloaded a few books on it and I think this is the way us older folks are going from now on. Won't have bunches on the shelf to dust.I am excited to receive my package but suspect that where I live, it won't arrive much before Monday of next week.

    Sandy are you like far off in no where land? Mail here comes pretty regular it seems. I find it funny that I can send to say Wyoming and it takes 5 or 6 days. To Oregon 5 or 6 days. To NY 3 to 5 days and the worst? AZ it takes the longest. No rhyme or reason I think other than some go by plane and other must go ground. All first class. Sure hope you get your package today it would be a fun treat I think for you.

    Silly girl, didn't you know that all mail to AZ comes in by burrow and is delivered on the backs of tarantulas? That' why it's so slow.

    I got it.....but who is it from???????

    I got my secret swap item ......but I have no idea where it came from or whom.......very pretty thou. Thanks to whomever. Please forgive me, I haven't been around much. I finally got a job....but for this 8-5er, I now work 6-3. OMG, talk about a messed up schedule and I am on my feet all of it, don't know if this will last but sure glad I got my project done early. I promise to mail out tomorrow. Tried to today, but I found out our little local PO has cut hours. It will be headed to the Mountain area as a hint.

    I think you must be right. I've tracked so many packages that arrive in Phoenix on say Tuesday early a.m. They transfer to Litchfield Park Post Office by around Wednesday a.m., and don't go out for delivery until Thursday! So irritating when waiting for a package.

    My brother just moved to Huachuca City. I sent him a package on the 8th for his birthday and as of last night he hasn't received it yet. It was the same with their Christmas gift.

    Just checked the tracking numbers ( I sent 2 packages) and one was delivered today and one 'was supposed to be delivered by today' Said it was 'missent'- Now what in the heck does that mean. I mailed them both to the same person at the same time on the same day!
    Oh the joys of the USPS...so now along with waiting for my package to arrive, I have to wait and see if she got both packages. Anticipation! But headed off to bed now!

    Sandy, the last time I saw that on a USPS tracking, they'd put it on a truck on the wrong route, and it was a 1-day delay. I've seen it on a UPS tracking before though, and their system had glitched & sent the package several states in the wrong direction, lol.

    Sewnsewer2, I can't wait to see the pictures!

    I've now heard from everyone. The last person says we're on schedule. I'm hoping to get the piecing done on mine this weekend. I'm on the "hard" section. Then there's ironing it out again, sandwiching, quilting & binding. I'm going to be cutting it close! It's worth it though. It's turning out aMAZing!
