I'm afraid I am going to have to withdraw from this swop. My dearly beloved knocked a glass of water all over my cards, which were sitting waiting to be packed. Of course, it was MY fault. This was the last straw in a couple of days fraught with emotion and I just dissolved and spent the rest of the afternoon crying. Now I'm in no fit state emotionally or physically to start all over again and get them in on time. Besides the fact that I'm royally p'ssed off, cos I was really proud of them.

susietex
07-29-2008, 04:27 AM
My cards are on the way.

Ibus, I really feel for you, so sorry. I hope you feel much better soon.

monarch

ibus - I have always thought of that happening and how I would act if it happened...I know for one thing I would be upset, too!!!! I'll note the list that you withdrew.........

susietex and ria - I'll let you guys know when you cards get here......
