Well, I finally got the pictures from my last trip to the Philippines loaded into the gallery (use the “Our Pictures” link in the menu on the left). The most recent album is called “Philippines6,” and contains the pictures from the trip that do not include any of the family members (scenery and sights). The pictures that include myself, Malen and/or the kids are in a new sub-album under the “Dave, Malen & Family” main album. The sub-album is called “Meeting Six!”
On another front, although the decision granting Malen’s annulment has been approved and signed by the judge, the post-decision processing has hit some snags. We STILL do not have the final paperwork registered and in hand. That is the point we are waiting for before we can submit the fiancee K1 visa request. Our lackadasial, unorganized, uncaring lawyers appear to be at fault again. The documentation sent to the Socilitor General was inadequate for an annulment. The court lawyer has had to put together a more complete set of documentation, and that is now back with the Solicitor General. The court did this because they do not want the judge’s decision to be questioned or overturned. Stay tuned!
Malen’s father has been in an auto accident, and has a fractured hip. He was in the hospital for a few days, but now is resting at home. He is supposed to get a month of bed rest. Malen and her sister has used this situation to move his stuff to the new house from the old house, so that Malen’s father is finally living in the new place (something he has been extremely reluctant to do).
Malen is attending some training during the day in preparation for a new job. More on that later.
