Mike & Alicia become engaged Kathy secures a job at the Glendale Public Library Marie is selected as one of ten finalists for AIA Student Athlete of the Year
Alex had been laid off from Lucent Technologies in late This left him time to do some fix-ups around the house. His first job was to remodel the second bathroom. It took a few weeks to complete and required the assistance of contractors. This experience was a clear indication that major help was needed to get the house in shape if we ever wanted to sell. Many improvements were made over the next 7 years before we sold the house and moved into something requiring less maintenance.
June 2001 in Albuquerque was the last soccer tournament we attended for Marie. Marie & Alex drove there together, while Kathy flew a day later because of her new job. Marie got to see her Mom’s childhood house in Gallup, New Mexico on the drive back. We also had time to take the lift up Sandia Mountain.
July 2001 Our friends the Farnsworth’s come over for a swimming party In-laws Barb & John visit for the summer Alicia & Mimi have their 23 rd birthday. Alicia celebrates at the Tilson’s.
We get a new cat and name him Mufasa. He is probably the most people friendly pet we have ever had. We were heartbroken when he disappeared several years later. We think someone in the neighborhood was trapping animals. This event hastened our desire to move away.
August 2001 The entire clan decides to vacation in Pinetop…bowling, Sunrise Park, golfing, etc.
Summer is over and it’s time to move all of Marie’s stuff to USC in Los Angeles!
September 2001 The USC semester started very roughly as there was an earthquake and then the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. We weren’t sure if we needed to drive to LA and bring Marie home. We finally decided that she should go home with her roommate Jenna whose family lived nearby if evacuation was necessary. Our entire family had taken a trip to the East Coast about 10 years earlier and one of our visits was the WTC.
It is Parent Day at USC, so we spend some time with Marie in different activities, like sporting events, meals, etc. Mike & Alicia join us for the party. October 2001
November 2001 The girls decide to have a Mother/Daughter meal at First Watch before they go off in different directions. Thanksgiving is at our house. Barb’s husband John and Alex’s Aunt Doris pass away.
December 2001 Our annual Christmas dinner with Mickey & Pat and Don & Darlene. This year Kathy & Alex picked Sapporo’s in Scottsdale.
