Greetings to all:)
I know this blog has been fairly dormant over the past few weeks and I apologize for that. There has just been so much going on both good and bad. Never fear, all is well and I hope to have an updated Fall Fair schedule listed in my next post:) To summarize I have received a job offer with the company Aramark, Inc. as a prep/grill cook two weeks ago which I took:) I feel like the Dunkin Donuts guy when I get up in the morning but I love my hours and my coworkers are pretty cool too. Granted it's a fairly entry level job but I understand practically everyone starts at the bottom with these guys and there's lots of room for rapid advancement so I'm not worried:) I'm still volunteering in the hospital cafe Mondays after work so my days can get fairly long and tiring. It's a situation that takes getting used to but hey at least I'm not bored right?;)
Anyway, as I mentioned earlier I've got a few applications floating around for the new holiday season and I should have my complete schedule up shortly. In the meantime, I need your help. Recently, as a favor to a family member who shall remain nameless for the time being, I took in a little Shih Tzu named Mugsy. I won't go into full detail here but basically Mugsy arrived in a condition that was described by my vet as neglected and has medical issues that call for surgery to the tune of $700! Said family member has decided Mugsy is no longer a priority and has since abandoned him to us. Needless to say animal control officers have been contacted and charges of animal cruelty and abandonment are forthcoming. In the meantime, I've set up a blog documenting Mugsy's story and our attempt to raise the funds for his operation by October 18th. And so all proceeds from candles sold in my shop (this includes custom orders) until October 18th when we hope to have the surgery, will go towards Mugsy's operation. We are also accepting donations if you don't wish to buy a candle. Any money left after the surgery will be donated to the Coastal Humane Society of Maine. So please, take a look at Mugsy's blog and spread the word to help us get Mugsy back on his feet again:) Thank you in advance! Ciao for now.
