4th furlough home

WELL, JIMMY CAME HOME YESTERDAY, AT 1PM...WEDNESDAY.  AND THEN, AGAIN, HE LEFT THIS MORNING, AT 8AM....IT IS WONDERFUL TO HAVE JIMMY HOME...IT IS COMPARABLE TO HAVING A WEEKL;Y DATE WITH YOUR HUSBAND....SO MUCH TO DO, AND SO LITTLE TIME TO DO IT....AROUND MIDNIGHT, I ALREADY START TO FEEL SAD, BECAUSE JIMMY WILL SOON BE LEAVING IN THE MORNING.....ANYHOW, JIMMY HAD A GOOD SLEEP, IN HIS OWN BED, LAST NITE...AND I'M GLAD HE DID....OF COURSE HE SLEEPS ON MY BACK-SIDE, AS HE ALWAYS DOES....AND HE HOLDS ME VERY TIGHTLY.....AT ONE POINT, I GOT UP TO GET A GLASS OF WATER, AND HE WOKE UP, AND STARTED SCREAMING MY NAME....HE DID THAT WHEN WE WERE FIRST MARRIED, TOO....HE JUST HAS TO HOLD ME EVERY SECOND WHILE HE IS IN BED....HE WOKE UP ANOTHER TIME, AND TOLD ME HE WAS FREEZING, AND HE HAD ICE CYCLES GROWING ON PARTS OF HIS BODY  :)   WELL, WHAT DO YOU THINK!....I HAD THE AIR-CONDITIONING ON FULL BLAST, AND THE TEMPERATURE IN THE HOUSE HAD DROPPED TO 59 DEGREES....YEP, THAT'S WHAT IT'S LIKE TO HAVE A NICE BIG MAN WRAPPED AROUND YOU ALL NITE!

LAST EVENING, BETWEEN SESSIONS, (LOVE -MAKING SESSIONS, THAT IS), JIMMY AND I WATCHED A MOVIE ON "ON-DEMAND.".....IT IS CALLED "WHITE NOISE".     :)   I EVEN MADE POP-CORN, AND DIDN'T BURN ONE KERNAL...JIMMY IS ALWAYS AMAZED AT THAT, BECAUSE WHEN AT BAYSIDE PRISON, THE GUYS MADE POPCORN EVERY EVEING...AND THEY ALWAYS BURNT IT......

WHEN JIMMY ARRIVED HOME, I HAD COOKED HIM POT-ROAST...AND IT TURNED OUT THE BEST HE EVER TASTED......YOU SEE, BEFORE JIMMY LEFT FOR PRISON, I NEVER EVEN WALKED INTO THE KITCHEN...HE WASN'T SURE I KNEW WHERE THE KITCHEN WAS, AS HE ALWAYS COOKED, SERVED ME, AND CLEANED UP AFTERWARDS.......BUT NOW, BEING ALONE, I DO IT ALL...AND IT KIND OF AMAZES HIM.........THE TRUTH IS, I CAN COOK VERY WELL, AS I GREW UP IN AN ITALIAN HOUSEHOLD, AND WAS AROUND MY MOTHER, WHO WAS COOKING, AND I LEARNED AT AN EARLY AGE....AND TODAY MY COOKING TENDS TOWARD ASIAN COOKING...I USE A LOT OF INDIAN SPICES...AND GINGER.......IT'S PRETTY MUCH MY OWN INVENTION...........AND SO MY HUBAND IS PLEASED WITH ME AS HIS WIFE, AND THAT MAKES ME HAPPIER THAN EVER.............MY ROLE IN LIFE , WHICH MAKES ME VERY HAPPY, IS TO BE JIMMY'S WIFE, AND TAKE CARE OF THE HOUSEHOLD, AND PETS WHILE HE IS AWAY, WORKING.....I ALWAYS TOLD JIMMY...MANY TIMES OVER, "I JUST WANT TO BE YOUR WIFE,  I WANT TO BE MRS. R."....WHAT I MEANT IS THAT IN LIFE I HAVE DONE THIS AND THAT...BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO LOVE YOUR HUSBAND...AND THAT MAKES ME HAPPY.....

JIMMY OF COURSE, ALSO DID WORK IN THE HOUSE , TOO...AS HE IS A MAN WHO ENJOYS TAKING CARE OF THE HOUSEHOLD.........HE MOVED THE LARGE COMPUTER DESK FROM THE LIVING ROOM, INTO THE EXTRA BEDROOM...I AM NOW BACK TO NORMAL WITH MY COMPUTER...AS I ORIGINALLY WAS, AND CAN SEE THE SCREEN CLEARLY.  JIMMY ALSO SET UP LAMPS FOR ME, NEAR THE COMPUTER.

JIMMY LEFT HOME AT 8 AM...TOOK THE 2 BUSES BACK TO KINTOCK...HE MUST HAVE ARRIVED AT KINTOCK AT AROUND 1PM...THEN HE RE-BOARDED THE BUS, AND RODE THE 2 1/2 HOUR TRIP TO HIS JOB AT ATLANTIC CITY....THAT IS 7 1/2 , OR MORE HOURS OF TRAVEL....IF HE COULD ONLY LEAVE THE HOUSE AND GO TO HIS JOB, THAT WOULD BE 2 HOURS OF TRAVEL, OPPOSED TO 7 1/2 HOURS......HE SAYS HE DOESN'T MIND IT...THAT HE WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET HOME TO HIS WIFE....HE HAS GOTTEN USED TO SLEEPING ON THE BUS....MY HUSBAND IS A STRONG-WILLED, AND DETERMINED INDIVIDUAL, WHO WILL DO ANYTHING TO BE HERE AT HOME WITH ME, EVEN FOR JUST A FEW HOURS.....THEY DON'T REALLY MAKE MEN LIKE THAT!....HE KEEPS SAYING THAT THE LONG HOURS OF TRAVEL DON'T BOTHER HIM, AND TRUTHFULLY JIMMY LOOKS BETTER THAN EVER...HE EVEN LOST MORE WEIGHT....AS HIS WIFE, I CAN ESPECIALLY FEEL IT, IN AREAS OF HIS BODY, THAT SEEM SLIMMER....HOWEVER, DON'T WORRY, THE IMPORTANT AREAS   :)  .....ARE THERE BIGGER THAN EVER!...........  :)

BYE EVERYONE...HOPE YOU HAVE A REAL NICE EVENING...GIVE A SPECIAL KISS AND HUG TO YOUR LOVED ONES....YOU ARE LUCKY TO HAVE THEM NEAR YOU.....AND LET US REMEMBER THOSE PEOPLE, IN OUR OWN COUNTRY, WHO ARE NOW SUFFERING , WITH THE HURRICANE AND FLOODS IN THE SOUTH.........FRAN.

HI my name is cassie and i stumbled across your journal in hopes of finding relief and just reading through your inspiring words whether up or down helped, I am 19 years old and i currently have a boyfriend that i have been with for about a year that was recently arrested and incarcerated for 120 days, now i know my 120 days seems like absolutly nothing compared to the time youve waited, but i just want to let you know that your words helped put into perspective what i could be dealing with... I love my boyfriend very much, so much we will be getting married sometime in the near future once he is released. It has been 30 days he has been in, and i live with him so i am very much alone, so in a sence i know what its like to be alone at night. I am happy to hear that your relationship with your husband is so strong, it truely gives me comfort to see that it is possible to survive the pain, that they go through as well as the woman in the situation, thank you for you words.
sincerely yours
-cassie
