I wonder if my divorce will ever become final. I can't get a call back from my attorneys, but occasionally they'll acknowledge a fax and will call, telling me I'll be getting my final papers in a few days to review, but I've been hearing this since February. Seriously, February. Mark and I have worked everything out by ourselves, all we need are papers to sign. If you ever need a good divorce attorney in Dallas, make sure and ask me for my attorney's name so you can mark them off your list of those to call.
Mark got Charlie a summer job at the company he works for, a pool company in Dallas. Charlie is working on one of their construction crews. It's hard physical labor, in our hot Texas weather, 11 - 12 hour days. Yesterday marked his first full week on the job, and I've yet to hear this kid complain. Comes home everyday exhausted, covered in dirt and sweat, but with a smile on his face. I'm so proud of this kid.
Our church has a few different campus' around the Dallas - Ft. Worth area, and opened one up in Miami about a year ago. Several of the leaders went there to get the campus up and going. Casey, volunteering at the church as much as he does, knows most all of them. The church has rented a U-Haul to take a lot of last years 'kids adventure week' props from our church in Plano to the campus in Miami and they have asked Casey to ride down with a couple of our assistant pastors that are driving it down. He's so excited. He can't help drive, because he'd have to be 21, but he's going to help since he helped build it all, he knows how everything needs to be done. They're leaving for Miami on Thursday and though the other guys going are flying back on Sunday, the Miami pastor has asked Casey to stay on for a few days, so he'll be flying back Tuesday or so. Thankfully, my good friend and neighbor is a flight attendant, so she's able to get him a buddy pass ticket to fly on. Casey has been wanting to visit this Miami campus since we opened it, so he is thrilled.
When he gets back from Miami, the church is paying his way ($475) to our teens summer camp in Keystone Colorado. They call it a camp, but they're staying in condos at one of Keystone's resorts. He'll be there for 7 days. Casey is so excited, and I'm so happy for him. God has blessed Casey greatly lately!
Charlie and I were watching some oldies on youtube last night. Janis Joplin (Cry), Otis Redding (Try A Little Tenderness) and a few others. Pretty cool being able to share this sort of stuff with your kid.
