Spring/Summer Update
June 29th, 2010 by dadepfan

Well, in a few days it will be July already!  I spent the end of May and the first half of June with Malen and the kids in the Philippines.  As always, it was great being together.  Every time I visit, being with the family feels more and more natural and right.  Malen and I are very well matched, and destined to be together.  I was in the Philippines for 22 days, which turned out to be one day past the limit!  Ooops!  Luckily, the immigration officer at the airport let me slide!

Malen’s annulment is still dragging on!  She had her “last” court appearance while I was there – twice!  It turned out that the May appointment was not for her, but for the psychiatrist instead!  They wanted to schedule her last appearance for July!!  After much hemming and hawing, Malen finally got the appearance scheduled for just before I was leaving in mid-June.  So, we had two bus trips to Zambalas, one with the kids and one without.  After I returned to Sequim, Malen found out that the judge wanted to meet with the “witness” (Malen’s oldest daughter – Yeng).  That was scheduled for the end of June, but was cancelled because the judge was in the hospital!  It is now scheduled for July 8th.  Malen’s lawyers claim that the time period for the judge to make her decision started with Malen’s last appearance in June, and was not extended because of Yeng’s appearance.  We shall see!

Meanwhile, back in Sequim….  The wet and cool weather has caused the grass and weeds to go wild!  While I was away, the yard went from freshly mowed to wild and woolly!  It was hard to see the dividing line between the maintained yard and the wild wetlands!  I have been working almost every day on the mowing, raking, and disposal of the mowed grass, and I am still not done!  Wow, this stuff grows fast when the weather is right in the spring!  I finally broke down and purchased a riding mower.  Pushing around the trimmer-mower, and then raking and disposing of the cut weeds and grass, just takes too much time and effort.

Because of the constant yard work, I have had to neglect things like my two blogs and processing and uploading pictures to our album, but look for that to be done in the near future.
