Just wondering if it's possibe to post swap "parteners" early enough on Saturdays (or include weekends in the mailing time window) to allow for us working Mamas to participate more easily. I for one sure would appreciate it!

Anyway, my list....

Bradenboy: I'll PM you.

Mamatoto2: Great Question. That is exactly what I was thinking in making Saturday the day to POST the matched-up swaps. It is my intention to get that list up ASAP.

Jeca: Another great quesiton. I really wrestled with which weekend to pick. The weekend of September 26th/27th is actually better for me. If people do not think it is rushing things too much, then I am happy to change the dates but I really should do it relatively soon so as not to confuse things further.


[email protected] "Change the swap dates?"

Okay, it's late and I am tired. I hosted a Blessingway for a friend of mine tonight. It was really wonderful but I am beat..
