DE-CLUTTERING AND CLEANING FOR JIMMY

I SPENT TODAY CLEANING AND DE-CLUTTERING THE HOUSE IN ANTICIPATION FOR JIMMY'S ARRIVAL HOME......AT LEAST IT MAKES THE TIME PASS QUICKER, IF NOTHING ELSE.  HOWEVER, I CAN'T BE TOO EAGER...YOU SEE, I'M ALMOST AFRAID TO GET TOO EXCITED ABOUT ANYTHING....DURING THESE PAST 18 MONTHS, I LOST A LOT OF TRUST IN THE WORLD, SO I AM CAUTIOUS , UNTIL I AM DEFINETLY SURE HE IS COMING HOME.....

TOMORROW, ONE OF HIS FELLOW INMATES IS GOING HOME.  HE HAS BEEN IN PRISON FOR 4 YEARS, .....HE REALIZES THE MISTAKE HE MADE IN HIS LIFE....HE REFORMED, MET A WOMAN WHILE IN PRISON, WHOM HE PLANS TO MARRY.  HE IS SO EXCITED!....I SPOKE WITH HIM ON THE PHONE, AND HE IS VERY HAPPY, AND WE ARE HAPPY FOR HIM.  HE ALSO STUDIED THE CATHOLIC FAITH WHILE IN PRISON, INSPIRED BY MY HUSBAND, AND HAS TURNED HIMSELF OVER TO GOD......HE IS THE PRIME EXAMPLE OF A YOUNG FELLOW WHO HAS CHANGED HIS LIFE WHILE IN PRISON, AND WE WISH HIM LUCK!..............................AND SO , YOU CAN SEE, NOT EVERYONE IN PRISON IS A "BAD" PERSON, ALTHOUGH THE POPULAR BELIEF IS THAT ALL CRIMINALS ARE BAD PEOPLE!

I HAVE GATHERED 4 BAGS OF MY OLD CLOTHES THAT I WILL GIVE AWAY....I RE-ARRANGED THE KITCHEN CABINETS .....I HAVE GOTTEN RID OF LOTS OF GARBAGE....IT FEELS GOOD TO GET RID OF STUFF, AND TO "START OVER AFRESH."..... A NEW BEGINNING!

I HAVE A HUSBAND WHO IS A CLEANLINESS FREAK!  I'M SERIOUS!  HE LOVES TO CLEAN....HE CAN'T WAIT TO COME HOME AND START CLEANING, BELIEVE IT OR NOT!....(OF COURSE, I COME FIRST, THEN HE'LL CLEAN).  AT THE HALF-WAY HOUSE HE COOKS IN THE KITCHEN.  ONE DAY RECENTLY, NO ONE KNEW HOW TO CLEAN THE "GREASE TRAP" IN THE STOVE.  AS A MATTER OF FACT, NO ONE EVEN KNEW WHERE IT WAS!.....OF COURSE, MY JIMMY KNEW!....AND HE WENT ABOUT DOING THE JOB OF CLEANING IT...THE OTHER GUYS STOOD AROUND AND WATCHED , ALMOST GETTING SICK TO THEIR STOMACHS, AS IT IS A VERY MESSY JOB, TO SAY THE LEAST.  AND THESE GUYS REALIZED HOW JIMMY KNOWS ABOUT RESTAURANT KITCHENS, ETC.........BECAUSE JIMMY HAS OWNED 7 RESTAURANTS IN HIS LIFETIME, INCLUDING BARS , DELI'S AND HOTELS....JIMMY IS A VERY KNOWLEDGEBLE MAN. AS I ALWAYS SAY.............THE BEAUTY OF JIMMY IS THAT HE CAN DO WORK ON ANY LEVEL..........HE CAN BE THE BOSS, AND HE CAN COOK THE FOOD, TOO....THE OTHER DAY HE HAD TO WASH DISHES, AS THE DISHWASHER WAS NOT AT WORK...AND HE TOLD ME HE ENJOYED IT!....WASHING THE DISHES, GAVE HIM TIME TO THINK ABOUT ME, AND ALSO REVIEW HIS PAST LIFE, AS HE WASHED THE DISHES.  HE SAID IT WAS SOOTHING TO HIS SOUL..........OH, I JUST LOVE JIMMY!...HE IS AN INCREDIBLE MAN.........HIS I.Q. IS AT A VERY HIGH LEVEL.  HE IS OFTEN MIS-UNDERSTOOD BY THE WORLD.  PEOPLE LIKE HIM NEED A LOT OF STIMULATION, AS THEY GET BORED EASILY.  IT TOOK ME, HIS WIFE, TO REALLY UNDERSTAND HIM.....................

WELL. THANKS FOR READING MY JOURNAL, AND I ALWAYS ENJOY YOUR COMMENTS!

LOVE,       FRAN
