Alpine, CA asked in Trademark for California

Q: I need to renew a trademark, SMILING ROCKS by Nov. 22 & was also wondering about the evidence of use requirements. TY!

I was more involved in the use of the mark in years past. I then shifted my energy to other parts of my business, Faux Rock Contractor, and didn't renew my domain which is now held by a diamond jewelry company. They are also seeking to file the same trademark, SMILING ROCKS as well. Just wondering what options I have to retain my Mark or if I've not used it enough to even be allowed to. Thoughts?
