Re: apartment flood damage: yeah... I'm guessing about $600 worth of books? And a number of papers. I really haven't assessed the damage yet. Mostly Tuesday was spent "get everything someplace dry!!!" and "clean up the water!" I've spent the week laying out stuff to dry, and washing a ton of laundry. Tomorrow I'll begin weeding through it all & figure out what's salvageable and what's not.

My package will be mailed out tomorrow (Saturday). My local post office is open 9am to 3pm. To celebrate getting stuff moved back into my apartment today, I went and jumped in a lake. On my way home I thought "I'll stop at the post office then go home" but ignored that voice, went home to eat and grab the rest of my mail to avoid 2 trips. My neighbor showed up 10 minutes later frantic because somebody had turned her cat into the pound so I drove her & the post office was closed by the time we arrived.

I will be late in sending.  There is absolutely no way around it.    Embarrassed   Sad

Things have been...icky.  By no means as bad as poor Ecclectic's, but...we ran into some financial stuff, and between that and the dumb family drama- I am looking at a late send-out.  I can't send packages off in the mail in exchange for the gas to get DH back and forth to work. 
 
For some reason, DH feels that being able to keep getting paid takes priority over crafting.  Foolish man!  Roll Eyes

I am so sorry, my swap partners!  I usually am better than this...

Oh man, that is so terrible! Hopefully you can salvage more than you can't!

Just got back from the post office myself.  Envelopes were a little to fat, so I had to send them as a 'small package', but I don't mind.  I was expecting that anyway.  We are only allowed to send an envelope that is less than 100 grams and less than 2 cms fat for regular lettermail..yeah right...like I can stay in those parameters.

Excited to receive.  Might get one next week, the other likely the week after.  International shipping can be sooooo... what is the word...irritating?  I don't have the patience.  I am an instant gratification type of person sometimes.

Thanks for the great swap Mini_mum and IdlersDesign.

I sent today also - managed to squeak under the 13 oz. restriction but the envelope to England cost me more than $8.00. But that's half what it would cost if I had to use the small Priority box. The one to I sent with in the US was just under $4.

And sending out 10 puzzle pieces packages and my 4 x 6 art to Europe, I spent over $40. today at the P.O.

Yikes - no more "5 swaps at a time" swapping!!

^ I've had a few expensive trips to the post office - I think 35 was the most I've paid for one parcel: but TOTALLY worth it Smiley

Sorry I've been quiet this time round - struggling with health issues atm so life getting in the way of crafting again Sad

Hopefully I'm now ready to stuff (although I don't think there will be room for many supplies in 1 of the envelopes  Wink )

I'm not entirely sure how wide 2 cms is, but I do know it's not much.  It would be tough to meet that regulation!  I agree that waiting for the mail can be frustrating!  I tend to check the mailbox at least three times a day when I'm waiting for something good Smiley.

LOL, I thought that I spent a lot at the post office to mail my three envelopes, now I see that I got off lucky Wink.

Mini_mum, I hope all the health issues are resolved quickly!  Thank you so much for organizing this swap!

Hi
I have sent both my envelopes, but haven't been updated on the senders list yet Sad I sent on the 12th of July. Thought my partners would have had them by now but maybe it's just taking a while longer from UK to US this time!
