LIFE IS GREAT!

Hi everyone!...Just stopping by for a quick entry, before I go out shopping, as it is a beautiful sunny day here in south jersey!.....Jimmy will call me in about a half hour.....

  Jimmy is doing wonderful at Talbot Center....He is in charge of the library, and he has given hour long lectuires along the way.  He still attends around 8 sessions per day, so he is always kept busy.  He is also in charge of a Talent Show the guys will put on, so he is busy with that....He is also on the "alumni committee."...I love Talbot Hall!...I felt that the first day I went there!...It is a positive and uplifting place...It is full of energy and optimism.....I am so thankful Jimmy has gone to such a nice place...All the counselors are such nice people, too.  He is being helped by all the positive energy at Talbot, and so am I , because I've never felt better....physically and mentally!

  His stay in the prison, is almost like a dream to me, and it is all nearing the end.  He should be out of Talbot, hopefully, the end of August, or into September....Then he will be placed in a half-way house....and he'll be home on weekends...the first visit home, will be for only 12 hours...I wonder if that is long enough!.....I know it isn't but it will have to do!...........One guess what we'll be doing for 12 hours?!...and it isn't eating food, but a little snack will do!...Even the prison system has to keep track of how long our "love-making" is...lol....I've learned everything is about  "time"..minutes, hours, days, months, years....I've been married to a man for 3 years and 3 months, and for 17 months , the state has owned him, and taken him away from me....but of course, in reality they can never take him away from me...we are always, at every moment, each and every day, together...in our heart, soul, and spirit...the physical realm almost doesn't matter any more!.........except of course, when he touches me, I still get chills!

Thank you for reading my journal, and all your nice comments!  Dawn, he will be in talbot hall until the end of August, or maybe going into September.  Then he will be placed in the half-way house.  Then, in October he will be up for parole.  The way I understand it, there will be a parole date, and he will go with his private attorney before the parole board, hopefully in October.  I think at that pont, they will decide if he can come home (I think he has to wear a metal bracelet...probably until the end of March 2005, because that will complete the 2 year prison term he had to serve).....So, he will probably come home in October.  While he is in the half-way house, he must get a regular job, in the outside world.  Then, on weekends...Friday, Saturday, Sunday, he will come home...He will arrive Friday afternoon, and leave Sunday afternoon.  He will have to find his own way home, even if it means public transport.  He can apply to have a car, so he can use our second car..................And then, once on parole, he will apply for a transplant to Nevada, as we want to go back to LasVegas.....and I am still a resident of Nevada, so it should not be too hard.....All along, I never gave up my Nevada residency, and we maintain homes in both states.....I'll be so glad when it's all over.....the whole prison-system is so complicated, and long and drawn out....and there is no mercy for us poor wives, who are left behind!..........Oh well!
