Dear Friends,
So how is everyone's week going? I've been crazy busy working on getting donations for the holiday season at St Marks. We give out turkeys and all the fixings for those in need. We do a coat drive to make sure everyone has a coat and hats and gloves and scarves and also the big one the toy drive so all the kids get toys and gifts for the holidays. All this giving takes a lot of donation solicitation. I got inspired and have been posting what I call St Marks Stories on the Thrift Store Facebook Page that I made for them. Those have been getting lost of attention but sometimes they want to help just the people in the story. That's a nice thing but St Marks is like a mom with 100's of hungry kids we can't take and feed just one or two of them.....EVERYONE needs us....
So what about you what have you been up to this week?

Dear Friends,
So how was everyone's week? Are you as happy as me that the elections are over? Neither my choice for governor nor mayor won but I am trying to remain positive. Pretty much thinking I am going to have to move out of here eventually and glad that I did not buy a home yet. So sad as I love it here.
And how are you liking this cold air? Seems to me it just snuck up on us. Usually NJ has its first frost by the end of Oct but so far we are still waiting for that so we have had it lucky, we may get it friday night though so bring your plants in if you haven't already. I am just praying for a mild winter. What about you?

Dear Friends,

So how was everyone's week? November is here and the air is getting chilly. Its also election time, are you ready to go out and choose who you want to win? I am really surprised when I hear people say they still haven't decided who they are going to vote for. In our town the Mayor is up for re-election and its a very heated race, my mind was made up months ago! How about you do you know how you are going to vote? Do you vote? If you do not why not?

 Dear Friends,

So who's ready for all the Halloween fun this weekend? There is so much going on! I also noticed a groupon for the women's expo but then found out you can get FREE tickets HERE. But anyway back to Halloween, what's everyone got going on? Me I plan to stay home and pass out candy, I lived too many years in a home that no trick or treaters came to. I also plan on keeping a close eye on my black cat (Lamar). Tried getting him a yoda hat but he wasn't happy with it. Should have read this article on Halloween pet safety first. What about you?

Dear Friends,

So how was everyone's week? I am trying to keep my chin up and look for another job but its hard to do sometimes. My friend says I need to add something to my resume to explain the large gap in employment and I should highlight my social media marketing skills. He says perhaps I should have a whole different career path. Not sure how I feel about that but at this point I must leave no stone un-turned! LOL So how about YOU? What's going on in your life?

Dear Friends,

So how was everyone's week? Mine was pretty good, as of this writing I am still waiting for my drug screen results to come back so I can start my new job. I did go over on Tuesday for some training. Since I was asked to come for 1 pm at 11:30 am I was so not prepared and hadn't had enough sleep so I was so tired for most of the training. Even with a full night sleep I feel like a zombie come back to life in the afternoons but I am sure I will adjust in time. Speaking of zombies this weekend is the big Zombie Walk in Asbury Park who's going? I might....
*update* I got the call and started new job today (Thursday) and driving home my recruiter called to tell me they don't want me after all! I am too much in shock to comment further..:(

Dear Friends,

So how was everyone's week? Mine was pretty good, as of this writing I am STILL waiting to hear back about the job I am pretty sure I got. But it did take them 2 months to bring me in for an interview so waiting 2 weeks for the offer sounds about par for the course. The main thing I must do is remain steadfast in my faith and trust in my God to carry me through. What about YOU? How was your week? What are you keeping the faith for in YOUR life?
*Update*  I got the job offer! And they want me to start Monday! Now how we are going to get my drug screen and back ground check done in 2 days is beyond me but woohoo the search is over!
