Granjan,

I will whine right along with you.

However, I got an email from my swap partner (very secretive and mysterious) that my package was mailed Thursday. Can't wait! Can't wait to see it.

Each day is a day of anticipation! I don't mind waiting at all. I don't want the fun to be over :-)

I agree...I don't mind the anticipation (and my swap partners usually have no choice...I'm always late sending). In fact, every swap I get so caught up with the sending part that I sort of forget I'm getting one, too.

It is better to give than to receive. Oh, who am I kidding?

My partner should receive hers tomorro or Thursday at the latest!

But, today I was cleaning up after lunch and I see the UPS truck turn the corner and stop RIGHT BESIDE MY HOUSE, I HEAR THE DOORBELL RING!! Blake runs to the door to see who it is!

I dry my hands and tell Blake that K.K. has a package and we can have fun opening it.(Last night I put my camera batteries in the charger so I can be ready.) I am all excited,,, we go to the door.

It is an envelope and I can tell by the return address that it is a parts book. DH has got to quit ordering parts when I am expecting a swap package.

Last Friday I was out of town and on my way home and my DIL calls and tells me that I have a huge package sitting in my driveway, I get all excited and then she says there are several boxes. I get home and yes there are eight or ten big boxes, they are parts that DH hss ordered, but I check each and every one, one could be mine, No.

But, I can't complain, my partner has not received hers either.

Just a little more anticipation!!!!!

My partner's package i due to be received tomorrow. Although I do not understand why she cannot receive it today as it arrived 5 1/2 hours from her house yesterday afternoon. Oh well. I also found out my partner has one of the items I sent already.

I for one love the anticipation of the swaps. Once you receive your package the guessing game is over. Nobody talking about a package is talking about yours.

Between finishing up a contract and getting packed for a trip (I leave tomorrow), I haven't had a lot of time to think about whining. My problem is that I won't be back home again until mid-March, so I'm reeaaallllly curious at this point. On the positive side, it's something to look forward to on my return home!

Cheers!
