| @7/91 A month after my ex left, he arrived in Vegas to
take our 16yo son to live with him. My ex exclaimed, "I'll straighten
him out!" I sobbed in despair, sadness and fear that I wouldn't see much of
my son, but figured a teenage son needs to be with
My ex didn't "straighten out" our son as he expected, and our son dropped out of school.
I don't think our 18yo daughter ever dealt with her feelings about her dad not asking that she live with him.
'92 My son wasn't thrilled about my new boyfriend.
'95? my 20yo son lived with us in Vegas for a year? My significant other got my son an internship in the food industry thru a friend of his, then a job at Caesar's Palace. My son excelled but the hours were terrible and his feet couldn't take the abuse. My son returned to CA. My son and boyfriend had become very close.
@97? My husband (as of 6/5/96, the 4th anniversary of our blind date) gave our eldest kids a computer and the works for each of their families. My son shows a huge aptitude for computers none of us knew about.
8/1/98 A new company took over and my son lost his CA receiving dock mgr job. He moves his family in with us in Vegas to be in business with my husband.
10/26/98 My husband gets my son a web design job with an up and coming dot.com. Over the next 2 years they triple my son's salary and his stock options :-) so he doesn't accept the job offered in CA where my husband now works :-(.
1/15/2001 My son's being groomed for management. Still no sign of us all living closer together again.
We all remain very close in spirit.
