JIMMY'S 2ND FURLOUGH HOME FROM KINTOCK, HALF-WAY HOUSE

HI AGAIN!.....I JUST COULDN'T GO TO BED WITHOUT TELLING YOU ABOUT JIMMY'S 2ND FURLOUGH HOME! 

JIMMY ARRIVED HOME LAST MONDAY AFTERNOON...IT TAKES HIM 3 CONNECTING BUSES, AND A TAXI TO GET HOME.........HE IS IN A HALF-WAY HOUSE THAT IS 2 HOURS AWAY BY CAR, BUT FOR HIM TO TRAVEL HOME, IT TAKES AROUND 5-6 HOURS, BECAUSE THE BUSES HAVE LOCAL STOPS TO MAKE.............IT WAS A WONDERFUL FURLOUGH, BUT OVER WAY TOO FAST..........HE LEFT ON TUESDAY MORNING AROUND 8 AM....HE DID THE 5-6 HOUR TRIP TO KINTOCK, THEN HE HAD TO BOARD THE BUS AGAIN, AFTER SIGNING IN, AND GO BACK TO HIS JOB IN ATLANTIC CITY...THAT WAS ANOTHER 2 1/2 TRIP!......WELL, I GUESS NOBODY SAID LIFE IS EASY!..........(you must understand, jimmy only slept 2 hours before coming here, as he arrives back to kintock at 3 am from his job, as assisitant store manager, in a large foodstore in ATLANTIC CITY)

AM I MAKING MUCH SENSE?!....LETS JUST SAY, JIMMY ALMOST LIVES ON A BUS!..........AND OF COURSE THE NIGHT HE WAS HOME , WE BARELY SLEPT....GUESS WHAT WE WERE DOING!...(and it wasn't cleaning the rugs...however jimmy did get the gardener to trim the outside bush     :)  ....well, it really needed it, and hadn't been trimmed in 2 years!)

AND SO, WE ATE CHINESE FOOD....AT HOME.  JIMMY MADE HIS ROUTINE CALLS EVERY HOUR TO CHECK IN....AND WE HAD A GREAT TIME!  WE WATCHED SOME SHOWS ON ON-DEMAND, CABLE TV.............WE PLAYED WITH OUR PETS, MISTY, JIMBO, AND THE DOG PRINCE...EVERYONE WAS AGAIN EXCITED THAT DADDY WAS HOME!.......JIMMY BRINGS HOME MANY TREATS FOR THE ANIMALS, AND LITTLE PRESENTS FOR ME TOO!......HOWEVER, I JUST WANT HIM...THAT IS ALL....AND BELIEVE ME, MY HUSBAND LOOKS BETTER THAN EVER1.......WHAT A HANDSOME, STRONG MAN!  HE LITERAALY PICKED UP AN OLD SOFA, AND THEW IT AWAY....WHAT A MUSCULAR MAN......OH, I JUST LOVE IT!....THEN HE ALSO DID THINGS AROUND THE HOUSE THAT NEEDED FIXING.........I GUESS I'M A TYPICAL WOMAN!....I NEED MY HUSBAND FOR 2 THINGS....MAKING LOVE AND FIXING THINGS IN THE HOUSEHOLD............!  ISN'T IT TRUE, LADIES?!.............AND OH, BY THE WAY, HE STILL DID SHAMPOO THE CARPET AGAIN....DUE TO ANIMAL HAIR AND DANDER........BUT THIS TIME, HE DID IT A LITTLE EARLIER, WITH ME, OF COURSE BY HIS SIDE EVERY MINUTE.......AND GUESS WHAT!....HE'S NOT A DRUG-ADDICT BECAUSE HE LIKES TO CLEAN THE HOUSE, AS WAS SUGGESTED IN ONE COMMENT (IF YOU'RE READING THIS NOW, I'LL ADDRESS YOUR COMMENT LATER  :)  .  

AND SO, IT WAS OVER TOO FAST.......PRINCE WAS QUIET ALL DAY WHEN DADDY LEFT.....AND AS FOR ME, I WAS ONCE AGAIN EXHAUSTED, AND RESTED ALL DAY...JIMMY IS A VERY ENERGETIC PERSON, AND IT IS SOMETIMES HARD FOR ME TO KEEP UP WITH HIM............HE NEEDS TO BE HOME MORE, SO I CAN START SLOWING HIM DOWN A LITTLE!.........AND I'M THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN DO IT!

WELL, AS YOU CAN SEE, MY WRITING AND FLOW OF THOUGHT HAS CHANGED NOW, AS I AM A HAPPIER PERSON......IN REAL LIFE, JIMMY AND I JOKE A LOT, BUT DURING HIS YEARS IN PRISON, I HAD STOPPED DOING THAT....BUT NOW, IT HAS NATURALLY STARTED COMING BACK TO ME.........AND SO, I'LL SAY,  "GOOD-NITE TO ALL!"................love, fran

HE IS IN A HALF-WAY HOUSE THAT IS 2 HOURS AWAY BY CAR, BUT FOR HIM TO TRAVEL HOME, IT TAKES AROUND 5-6 HOURS

WOULDNT IT BE EASIER FOR YOU TO PICK HIM UP?  JUST WONDERING..
