My Quick Trips to Ralphs and Vons

I am so thankful that I was off from work today because I can imagine with the rains that the freeway traffic was a hot mess.  About mid-morning, there was a small break in the heavy rains and I zoomed over to Ralphs for the FREE Rosarita refried beans (NLA) and FREE Annie’s mac & cheese.  The Annie’s freebie does qualify for the Savingstar rebate so it’s a Money Maker!

On the Ralphs app, you can click on your Friday Freebie to see a list of products that actually works for your freebie!

I then headed to Vons because I had a $3 off $25 and $3 off $30 coupons.  As I was walking around Vons, I found a special display of the  Nature Valley Granola Cups.   The display had rebate forms which I grabbed, however, my Vons receipt got soaking wet but I must say that cups are pretty darn good!

I always check out the home decor and Vons had more after Christmas buckets on 75% off clearance for $1.25.  I had not seen the bucks previously so I assume that they had never been out on the floor.  The buckets can easily be used Valentine’s Day or 4th of July decorations…very versatile decorating piece.

Sometimes We Got Wait to be Great

Last year, when I didn’t get the job that I had interviewed for downtown at another agency, I was highly disappointed because my interview was almost flawless.  However, I also knew that divine intervention had stepped in because there was something else that was coming for me that was going to bigger and better.

All last year, it was as if God was aligning the stars and the moon to move things into place for me to leave my current job.  The supervisor lessen my workload and I had almost nothing to do most of last year which is how I ended up volunteering to help one of our sister offices.

Out of the blue, in November, I got an email from an old coworker that I used to work with asking “when are you supposed to be coming to our office?”

The email almost took my breath away because I knew by the inquiry that I was about to be moving into a new job.  Her email was her way of letting me know that I was about to be offered an opportunity for a new job.

What is even more odd about this new job that I will be starting on February 6th is that I will be walking into an office that already has some low-key personnel drama.  I already know without it being said that they are bringing me in for specific reason.

When things that are expecting don’t go your way, we must patient and wait  because God has bigger and better things coming our way.  Sometimes, we feel stuck like things will always be the same but we stay focused on what we truly want and let things move into place so that we can be great!
