Hey everyone! Sorry I have been MIA recently, I’ve had a lot of stuff going on—my mom had a major operation recently and almost died, and there’s been a string of bad luck following me around—my boyfriend had 2 hospitalizations, I had some weird medical stuff, my cat had a sarcoma… (but hopefully I’ve been using up all my bad luck for the year at least? haha).

Anyway, the box got here yesterday morning! I’m hoping to have it out pretty soon, I’ve already sorted through it but I have to go take care of my mom for a few days so maybe next monday it will be on its way? Along with some very overdue swaps—I fear the recent upheaval in my life has made me a very bad Steepsterite. ;~;

Kittenna said

Omg… that sounds like a ridiculously amount of stuff to go wrong in a short while! I hope everyone (including the cat?) made it through ok. Hugs!

oh no! That’s terrible… I hope everything goes better for you and everyone from now on. Don’t worry about the box!

Miraculously, everyone is fine! Even my old kitty—he’s 16 and the surgery was very expensive, but he is recovering really well and it’s not malignant. My mom’s recovery is going well too, her intestines actually broke loose (which I didn’t even know was a thing!) and they had to remove some of them but she had no post-op complications, just a little trouble walking around and such but she’ll be totally fine thank god. Thanks for the well wishes you guys ^^

Shmiracles said

this box is amazing!
and hilariously charming in it’s motleyness. aren’t we all so unique!
and i will have you all know that i am fighting an INTENSE desire to hyper organize the entire box in an extreme way.
i say this cuz i bet a handful of you know what i’m talkin about. can i get a what what?!

Sare said

WHAT WHAT!!!! lol Cant wait so close to coming to me LVOE seeing photos!!!!!! of what to exspect i see some things i hope are still in there Hahahaha So sad sorry!!!

Shmiracles said

the box is on it’s way to TeaEqualsBliss!

i wanted to take more photos but i guess i got hyper-focused more on pulling samples and packing it up instead. oh well.

you can see that my desk tea has expanded to the top drawer due to the TTB:

Shmiracles said

YAY! that was fast. so glad!

Sare said

Yippie!!!!

Sare said

Hows the box coming along :)lots of Teas ? hehehe

Yes, indeed! There are a few that aren’t fitting so I have to rearrange it once again but hope to get it in the mail tomorrow or Wednesday :)

Sare said

Yay!!! Can’t wait!!

Sare said

any update?

I’m hoping this wasn’t actually mailed out yet… I’m not sure if I should be worried that it’s lost yet?

Uniquity said

I would guess it hasn’t gone yet. TeaEqualsBliss seems to be very busy but a generous swapper once she gets the parcels out. I think it took her a couple weeks with the other box and it looks like she hasn’t been on Steepster in a week or so so life is probably ‘in the way’ at the mo. :)

Sare said

I just hope she is ok!

momo said

if I see her on gmail chat tomorrow I will ask her about it

Sare said

Any updates?

momo said

left her a message so hopefully it can move again before I give up entirely on everything

I got the box last night !!! Going to go tree it this week end and ill get it out early next week!

Oh it’s moving again! And I think I’m next! I’m going to send you my address now, Sare, but I hope you take your time with the box.

Sare, apparently I didn’t follow my own rule for the other teabox I started and I wasn’t already ‘following’ the person who was supposed to send me the teabox. So I just did that. But you need to ‘follow’ me so I can send you my address! thanks

Sare said

I am already following you have not received your address yet though it may be a little longer before I get it out just got diagnosed with shingles :(

Uh oh. That is too bad. I hope you feel better soon! Please take all the time you need with the box.

Also, my sent box is saying I sent you my address 21 hours ago, so let me know if you still don’t see it. thanks
