Everything changed on Thursday when Dylan came walking in the door only a few hours after he'd left for work. He'd been laid off. We were shocked. Totally shocked. We quickly told each other that everything was going to be alright, but as the day went on, we just felt the weight of it all increasing. I think that I had a mini panic attack while out running a few errands on my own & all the crying I did that day made my head feel like it was going to explode.
We were left with a measly severance, and with no savings in the bank the pressure to figure out our plan quickly was on. We keep going through all our options over & over and we keep ending up at the same spot. We need to move to Las Vegas where we can be with our families until we get back on our feet.
Right now we are packing up everything (fabric included, as pictured above). In one week we will be loaded up & on the road headed west. There is so much that needs to get done. We are stressed & we are worried & we are sad. I told Dylan that one day we will be settled somewhere & we will be secure & life will be easy & peachy. Then we will look back & say "Remember that time......that time was really, really hard & really sucked." But it will seem like such a long time ago & everything will be fine.
** I will be closing up the shop for a week or so starting on Sept. 28th. If there is anything you need, please get your orders in before then.
** I'll also try to post updates here on the blog, but of course they will not be regular for a while.
