I was just about to call that camp up there in the mountains when my ex called me. After 16 years of marriage, some things are still weird. Timing and having the same thoughts about things that pertain to both of us at the same time and contacting each other at those same moments.

So, I told her I was just about to call up there. Got off the phone and got - whoever. That person explained they were having a dinner at the Spaghetti Factory in Phoenix at 5:30 for their crew and then they would be done around 7:30pm. Well, 7:30 is in about 20 minutes. I asked if they had rides back home or if my son was going to need a ride. Probably going to need a ride.

So, I call the ex back and let her know. Then, not 5 minute later, my son calls. Lol.

Now? It's a quarter day later and my son called just now: they JUST got there to that restaurant. It's 7:20 pm. By the time they get out of there? I will be wanting to be in bed, not driving to downtown Phoenix! I'm on day…

Pretty much it's a free-for-all at these parties, but they haven't thrown one in 3 years like this. The last few years have been at parks or the GM's house because corporate wasn't allowing the expenditure to spend buccoo bucks for an open bar and unlimited entertainment options at this kind of place.

Well, anyway, Caleb comes home today. I'm guessing 2 months in that kind of environment and coming back to this environment is going to have an ajustment period. Up in the mountains, cool, clean air, not too much weighing on you and then back to the big city - yuck!

Oh, I forgot about his trip to CA. We…
