I am the MOM and I was here FIRST!

I am a 44 year old mother of three children and grandmother of one. I am divorced from my children's father whom I share joint physical custody of our youngest two children with. I have been married to my fabulous husband for over 9 near-perfect years. I LOVE this man! He is a wonderful generous, affectionate, tolerant and all forgiving husband. He is also a terrific step-dad/male role model to my kids and an even better grand father to our two year old grand daughter. My oldest daughter attends college to obtain her nursing degree. She has been on her own for over three years now (no longer part of a shared custody arrangement like her brother & sister) My middle daughter is in high school and plays on the freshmen volleyball & soccer teams. She's really creative and talented. My son is in middle school and plays hockey and lacrosse. He is a sweet sensitive boy who still says "I love you Mom" frequently. I work part time running an online ebay store. I have terrific and supportive relationships with my family, friends and of course my kids. I am extremely close to my sister, my Mom and my sister-in-laws. They are my best friends.

Las Vegas

My husband and I go to Las Vegas every year. We're never there alone. It's a big production.

It all started 15 years ago with my sisters wedding. About 30 of our family members and friends met out there for the event. Many of us have been going back every year since. My parents along with my husband and I have consistently met up in Vegas with whoever else could make it that year, for the last 9 years. I guess you could say we are the constant consistent originals of the group.

Most people might assume that vacationing with other people, let alone a bunch of people would be difficult. But, somehow from the beginning, it's always been easy and tons of fun. Obviously we can't, nor would we want, to do everything together all the time, but we plan a meal a day together and coordinate itineraries to meet for cocktails, sight-seeing, or shows etc. throughout our stay.

Some of the very best times in my entire life have been while vacationing with these people.

The month long countdown before we all leave our various locations in the USA to meet starts today. I truly can't wait.
