So Soft Pony, So hard to clean
- Sep 7, 2008
I just wanted to say I did get my box but, I decided to open it the day before Christmas. I love everyones teasers they look great.
awwwww I am sure you did perfect...just keep in mind there were two swaps this year and both had different amounts. So we will be seeing photos from both swaps..the 20.00 one and the 40.00 one. The most important thing about the swaps to me is the friendship involved...and the thought of doing something for someone else that loves ponies just like you.I'm starting to get nervous. I wonder if I did enough for my partner.
Thanks, Tula - that made me feel a bit better. It's my first swap and I wanted to make it a good one.awwwww I am sure you did perfect...just keep in mind there were two swaps this year and both had different amounts. So we will be seeing photos from both swaps..the 20.00 one and the 40.00 one.

I wouldn't worry too much Novavelle, maybe your partner has to do what I do. I have all my packages sent to my neighborhood shipping company so they are safe from being stolen off my porch. I only had to lose one item to realize that all my stuff can't come to the house. My shipping company is closed to the public on the weekends and sadly they don't get mail until after they close to the public on Mondays LOL. So I usually check for mail on Tuesdays. Lots of people have to go get their mail. Even my mom does this in her city rather than get stuff at her house directly. I am sure too that with family coming in for some folks this week...maybe your partner has it but hasn't had the chance yet to let you know. This happened to me once a swap partner of mine had a sick mom and got my stuff but was at the hospital with her mom two days in a row and I didn't know what was going on with her package. So I bet there is a logical reason...it says my partner received their box on saturday... according to the DC, but I haven't seen anything about them getting it, hope it didn't get lost
Swap box(es) received today! I will not be opening them til Dec. 24th though. So no brags til then. Sorry Secret Santa. I like to have packages to unwrap on Christmas and since my husband refuses to wrap things... you're it! lol.
My experience was entirely different. I have a very small family and we are far-flung, so holidays were with my nuclear family only. Gifts were usually wrapped the week of Christmas (if not Christmas Eve) and we had enough pets to keep us from putting anything under the tree, so we did not have to wait long.Well, I guess my Christmas package patience was learned as a child when we always received many packages from out of town grandparents and aunts and uncles. We would get all the wrapped packages out of the boxes and put them under the tree as they were delivered. I can remember looking at them with longing and having discussions with my sister about what we might be getting. Then the week leading up to Christmas our parents would let us each open one out of town present each night for the last few days before Christmas. So, yeah. It's not easy, but the anticipation of what might be in those fun little packages is half the excitement!
