Look out Mom, here come the swells

I had to say goodbye to my kids today. Again. My ex-wife got a job offer and a place to live in Arizona, and felt like she had to take it.

I understand, but it still sucks.

My kids seem to be handling it better than I am though. At least judging by this excerpt from a conversation I had with them last night:

Me: I'm really sad that you guys are moving away from here.

Mr M: Are you going to cry?

Me: Maybe*.

Mr M: Then you're a crybaby!









*Of course I cried**.

**I'm a crybaby.

Wow, that does really suck. Are you so rooted to where you are that you can't seek employment in AZ? I had to live half way around the country from my dad when I was a kid. I was away for over 3 years. It was hard for me as a kid too, so I understand what your kids will be feeling. It's not fun. ::::hug::::

I'm sorry. I'm sad for you and them. I hope that they like the new place. Maybe you can find a job nearby?

Maybe you should re-marry their Mother. That's probably what God wants to happen.

I am so sorry they are moving further away. Feels like we are losing them a little at a time.

Lots of jobs in southern Arizona. Move to Prescott or flagstaff. Ryan

I thought this story was going to be a happily ever after with the children having the badass Vegas upbringing (well, at least for their teen years)!
:(
I'm sorry, Minnow!
