Here We Are


We made it to Las Vegas after three days of driving. The lights welcomed us back, as did all of our family. We are happy that the trip is over & that we have landed here. Our emotions still seem to be all over the place. The only way to describe it is that we feel lost. We are hoping that we can find employment soon, but worry seems to be all consuming these days.

I am tired. There is a lot of work to be done with unpacking. I'm thinking that if we are unpacked & somewhat settled here that our family will feel a little more relaxed. So right now my focus is on that. Plus once we're all set up here, I can get back to work. My sewing machine misses me, I think.

We will get there. Wherever "there" is.

A few notes: The shop is back up & running. Also, I have created a flickr group for sharing your shirts/dresses made from my ruffle sleeve top tutorial. Check it out here.

I have been there Candace. I know all too well how it feels to have everything u are use to ripped away so quickly by financial stress. All u can say is that it only goes up and surrounded by family hopefully u will be propped while u are needing it. Best Wishes!!

i think unpacking WILL help settle those unsettles feelings. I can't tell you ENOUGH how WONDERFUL it was having you guys here! Oh how my heart literally aches knowing we're so close yet so far away! Our girls would be BFFs for sure! I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!

I too am unemployed when my aunt's family business of 32 years went under. It's hard to always have that stress hanging around - wondering what is around the corner for you and your family. I feel for you and will send many well wishes your way.

I am sorry that you had to uproot your family but I hope being surrounded by family will help those roots grow faster.

Unemployment is helping us but not quite enough and we've been living very lean for some time. I had months notice so it wasn't this boom surprise. Best of luck to you and your family. Get good sleep. That's the best advice I have - that I don't follow. Like you said in an earlier post - consider it an adventure that you someday look back on.

I am sorry and from the little I know of your family from this blog - I believe you have the sparkle power to get through it!
