Slowing Down

Mama's life is going through a transition again...After enjoying the last 1 1/2 years as a SAHM with my youngest daughter, I'm heading back to work.  Circumstances have changed here and it's necessary that I start working again.  I'm having mixed feelings about this.  I love being at home with my big baby girl and love working as a registered nurse.  I just don't like that it feels forced upon me.  Long story short, our renters aren't paying their rent and we just can't keep paying 2 mortgages on 1 teacher's salary.  It's a risk we took - building a 2nd home before the 1st one sold - and unfortunately the stakes have turned against us. 

As I transition back to a working mom, my sewing and blogging will suffer for awhile.  After a month or so, I'll only be working part-time and hope to be back to my usual hobbies again.  Please stick with me through this transition.  If you're a believer, I'd appreciate your prayers for our family to adjust quickly. 

Also stay tuned for a fantastic pattern review coming soon.  I hope you are following The Sewing Dork and Brown Paper Packages Pattern Review Month.  I will be contributing a reveiw of SisBoom's Patricia Tunic.  This was a great, versatile pattern that I can't wait to share with you! 

In addition to heading back to work, my computer was infected with the Antivirus Virus again.  This is the 2nd time with this virus and we cannot get it completely removed.  It redirects to a fake Antivirus.NET page and takes over the computer processes. It came from an infected PDF pattern download, so I'm going to be very leery of downloads in the future.  I have a new computer coming this week, but until it comes later this week you probably won't hear from me. 

Thanks for reading through this personal post.  I usually save this stuff for our family blog, Lusco Land, but am glad you're here with me :) Angie

I am so glad to have found your blog. You have a way of making someone feel like they know you from reading your entries! I love the pillowcase pattern as I make dresses for Dress A Girl Around the World and am always looking for new patterns!!

Sorry, I haven't been visiting in such a long time. Sorry to hear about what's happening. I hope you'll enjoy working again. And your bloggy friends will wait for you ;-) I know how little time is left in the day, when you have work and family. Good luck at your new job.
