So far, so good. I’ve blogged every day this month. However, the challenge is going to be this week. We have company arriving from out of state early Wednesday and staying for a few days. I love having company come stay with us. Hostess is my middle name 🙂 As a result, it’s quite possible that I may miss a few days of blogging. Sorry to say that I may not pass the NaBloPoMo test this month, but duty calls 🙂
Congratulations are in order to my blog friend Mel and her hubby. After several weeks of waiting, they finally received their court date. December 16th is the big day for them. I have to admit that I was selfishly happy to hear their news. They received their referral exactly 3 weeks to the day before we did. That also means their court date is exactly 8 weeks after their referral date. Could that possibly mean that we won’t have to wait 4 months for a court date, but maybe only 2 months? Who knows? Still, it’s exciting to hear that a court date recently scheduled is only 2 months out. It does give us some hope that we might not wait as long as we thought.
This also means we need to do something to bump up our fundraising efforts. We are still selling raffle tickets for a chance to win an Xbox 360 Elite console. We really would like to sell at least 100 more tickets if at all possible, but not sure how to go about getting them sold.
We also have a goal of selling at least 800 bags of coffee through our Just Love Coffee store front in the next two months. This is a “LOFTY” goal to say the least considering we’ve only sold 31 bags to date. Again, we’re at a loss on how we can get people excited and interested in buying coffee.
Speaking of Just Love Coffee though, they have added some new coffees and will most likely be adding teas in the not too distant future. They have also put together some Christmas packs of coffee. If you or anyone you know is looking for some good gifts ideas, please visit our store front and make a purchase. And if anyone has any great ideas on how we can make our fundraising efforts more successful, please share them as well.
Because I haven’t posted any pictures of Lili lately, I thought I’d share some today. She did a little modeling for me shortly before her nap today, so she was in a goofy mood.
