Surprise Family Vacation!

My Dad and Step Mom called us last week to ask if we would like to come for a week long visit.

That didnt take too much thought on my part.....yes!!!

We will have a five hour non stop flight into NYC for a short layover and then another short flight to an airport a short distance from their house.
We are soooo excited to be flying into NYC...there is a possibility to see the Statue of Liberty from flying over.

This is a much needed break from life here.
No sewing for business or pleasure, not as much cooking (cooking at someone else's house is much funner), no schooling.....ahhhhhhhhh!

Seeing my dad and step mom, niece and nephew, brothers and extended family.
We have animal care arrangements all set up here for all our critters, my ex will give us a ride to and from the airport here, and EVERYONE we know is sooooo excited for us!

Looking for another digital camera and family update...

Well, we seem to be faring well with our new life change in our family.
I may as well say....there has been a divorce.

We are now moving into uncharted territory but seem to be doing well.

We miss and love the man of the home but as I have been told "things change".

We are going full swing ahead into sewing for Lissilulu to supplement what income we get from my ex-spouse. So we can continue to home school and I don't have to do the *traditional* thing and get a job and upset our whole family way and put the older 4 children into public school and the youngest into daycare.
I am not talking down other's choices for doing those things....just saying; for my family this would be a major upset after what we have already been through.

Soooooo.....we are looking into another digital camera since my daughter's died and we need to be able to put pictures on our newly being created website and also our new Etsy store that looks pitiful with only 4 items. Three of those items are my daughters and not my own to boot!

We have a small pittance in the ole savings account, but looking at digital cameras that are worth anything I see that we have a ways to go.

One thing I have found out through this gray, broken family time is the love coming from online friends and blogger friends.....what compassion there is.

Thanks friends!
Lori and family

blog pause

We are taking a short break as we go through a very difficult family time.
