Things just never end! Last week my house was broken into (although technically it was not breaking, since my son left the back door unlocked after letting the dogs out and in). The thieves broke the lock on the door from the yard into the garage but couldn't get in because the door is blocked on the inside with all kinds of junk, but they must have found the back door unlocked. My dogs barked and woke me up at 3 a.m. but it took me a bit to actually come downstairs to see why they were barking (they have a tendency to bark 10 minutes every time a car drives down the street, or at a squirrel or cat until they are out of sight). When I came down, the door in my laundry room to the garage was wide open and the back sliding door was open about 3 inches, not enough for my dogs to get out, but they were standing there barking fiercely. They had tried to steal the rental car that was in my garage (mine is in the shop getting fixed from a car accident), but either couldn't figure out how to start it or how to open the garage door from inside the car (the garage door opener was under the seat and the batteries are weak, it usually needs to be pushed several times to open). They grabbed my purse and a few things off my desk on the way out the back door. I had gotten a new purse for Christmas and the last thing I did before going to bed was move everthing to the new purse and left it on the kitchen table. Only about $10 in the purse, but had my checkbooks, debit cards and a few credit cards, my keys,phone, insurance, registration, etc. Spent a day on the phone calling and reporting all that stolen, hubby changed the locks, took me to the Sec. of State and to get my old flip phone reactivated so I have a phone.
I am STILL waiting for the credit union to send me new debit cards. I went in last week and they told me that I had to "flip" my accounts since the thief had my account card, checkbook and id. Spent two darn hours there doing this, and asked for temp. cards. Was told new cards were being processed and so they couldn't give me temp ones. And my online banking won't work, they said it would take 2 days to "convert" my online bill pay and stuff, but when I try to log in, it says invalid account. I called and asked if I should sign up again with the new number and they said no, that would mess up the system coz they are in the process of converting it. If my cards do not arrive tomorrow, I am going and taking all my money out of all my accounts, right now the only way I can get cash is to go inside the bank, and even though they know me, they want me to bring my passport since my new license hasn';t come in either. Can't pay my bills with no checks, no debit card # and no access to online banking. This has been so frustrating.
My hand is getting a little better, it no longer hurts all the time, just most of the time when something touches the incision. So unhappy over doing the surgery. My other hand is acting up with the same problems, the dr. keeps asking when will I do surgery on that hand, the answer is NEVER!
My MIL is still in the nursing home. She is still very weak, but is convinced that once her wounds on her feet heal, she will be able to walk. She has not stood up since early November, let alone walked. I think she is going to be in there for at least several months before she can get around.
One of my very good friiends passed away last weekend. He was diagnosed with a rare blood cancer and started treatment in October. He had a very rough few months and is now at peace. He and his wife are my age, but her kids are out of college and out of the house, so she is alone now. It's been really rough for them with constant emergency room visits, hospital stays, lots of pain and problems. But we didn't expect him to go this fast.
I have lots of coupons, rebate forms, upcs and other things available. Please note, I am not a big time trader/seller, just a stay at home mom trying to make some extra cash and save money. On all items, if a number is not listed, I only have one. I have lots of multiples, and get more stuff in all the time.
I update my site as soon as I have trades pending, and add new stuff every few days. I only change the date on the page when I add to the site. If you would like to receive emails notifying you when I update the site, please go the Members area and sign up. I do not use any information provided for any purpose other than to send an email blast when the site has been updated.
If you are looking for multiples of an item, please ask, sometimes I have more but just haven't gotten a chance to update that category with them. I am always working on cutting, sorting and adding more, so I may have them.
Please take a look at my wishlist below to see if you have anything I need. If you don't have anything on my list, we can still work out a trade.
Want a quick trade with paypal? I trade for .05 per coupon per handling fee plus postage unless otherwise noted (excludes frees, cigarette and wine tags). Prices are listed for forms. This handling fee covers my time in finding, cutting, sorting and entering what I have and for putting together an envie for you. I cannot accept credit card funded paypal, I do not have the premium account. If you send paypal that charges a fee, you must add on the fee amount to the total.
All previous trades must be cleared before I will send a new trade. I am sorry to have to do this, and I value my "snail mail" traders but I have too many people who have not sent their last trade and want new ones.
While I understand that people get busy and can't always respond quickly, when you email me a list of items you would like and I respond, I will hold things for no more than 3 days without hearing back from you. That should be ample time for people to check my wishlist and get back to me. If you know you won't be online for a few days and let me know, I will try to accommodate that, but I have been holding things and then as it gets close to expiring the person finally responds and says never mind, then it's too late to trade to somebody who may have used it. I am also willing to start an envie and have you add to it later in the week, but if you haven't emailed and added within 5 days, I will send you the total and mail.
