Our Blog

Well, I think I've got a good version to start with.  I published it in a note on my Facebook page, and asked for feedback from friends, before hammering out a final draft - but I'm almost satisfied with it.  Made up a bunch of letters, using it for a template, all personalized and addressed to companies such as Mrs. Butterworth's.

I will try to sum myself up as quickly and honestly as possible.My name is Nikki, and I am a single mother of 3 who has been laid off from the Telecommunications field and living on unemployment for about a year and a half.  I have two daughters, 17 and 14, from a 5+ year marriage, and a 4 year old son from a 2 year relationship. I live in a fifth wheel trailer in my former brother-in-law's yard, since my former father-in-law passed away last month.  Only my younger two kids live with me. My oldest daughter lives with my parents nearby, because I simply cannot afford a big enough place to...
