RESTING AT KINTOCK

JIMMY IS RESTING UP AT KINTOCK, SINCE HE CAN'T WORK AT IGA, UNTIL THINGS ARE SETTLED WITH THE UNION.  SO, MY HUSBAND SAID HE SLEPT A TOTAL OF 10 HOURS YESTERDAY, CATCHING UP ON HIS SLEEP.  AFTER ALL, HE HAS BEEN WORKING AT IGA  FOR 6 R 7 MONTHS NOW, AND HE BARELY GETS A FEW HOURS OF SLEEP EACH DAY.  AFTER HIS 5 HOUR BUS TRIP TO AND FROM ATLANTIC CITY, EVERYDAY, AND WORKING 8-10 HOURS PER DAY, THAT LEAVES HIM AROUND 9 HOURS EACH DAY, IN WHICH HE MUST SLEEP, EAT, WASH HIS CLOTHES, BATHE, AND DO WHATEVER HE HAS TO...THAT IS NOT MUCH TIME.  SO, NOW, HE IS TAKING A LITTLE REST.  TODAY HE CAUGHT UP ON READING THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, WHICH HE HAS DELIVERED TO HIM AT KINTOCK, AND HE FINISHED READING HARRY POTTER'S LATEST BOOK...HE SAYS HE LIKES IT, AND THAT THE AUTHOR'S WRITING HAS IMPROVED. HE ALSO WROTE ME 4 LETTERS, AND IS SENDING ME CLIPPINGS FROM THE NEWSPAPER.  JIMMY ALSO IS HELPING OUT IN THE KITCHEN, FOR EACH MEAL, FOR ABOUT 1 HOUR.....YESTERDAY HE WAS CUTTING THE TOMATOES FOR LUNCH. 

...AND SO THAT'S IT....NOTHING MUCH HAPPENING.  AS FOR ME, I WENT OUTSIDE AND WALKED AROUND THE CIRCLE WE LIVE ON....I LOOKED AT THE BEAUTIFUL TREES...THE SQUIRRELS DASHING ABOUT....THE BIRDS...AND THE BEAUTIFUL WARM SUN, AND BLUE SKY.......THAT'S IT...JUST ANOTHER DAY IN THE LIFE OF A PRISONER'S WIFE.

I SAT OUTSIDE WITH PRINCE, OUR DOG.  I WATERED THE PLANTS ...AND OF COURSE THOUGHT ABOUT JIMMY, THE MAN I LOVE SO MUCH.  I WOULD GIVE UP ALL THE WORLD, JUST TO BE IN HIS LOVING ARMS...........

I MISS HIS PRESENCE AGAIN NOW, AS I WAS GETTING USED TO HIM COMING HOME..........

AND SO, HE CALLED ME SO MANY TIMES TODAY....WE SPEAK ABOUT SO MANY THINGS..........

NOW, I HAVE A NEW IDEA FOR A STORY, THAT I WILL START WRITING TONIGHT..........JIMMY INSPIRED ME WHILE TALKING ON THE PHONE TODAY.

AND SO, LIFE GOES ON...THE WHEELS OF LIFE TURN....AUTOMATICALLY.....EVER SO SLOW FOR ME, AS I WAIT AT HOME FOR THE MAN I LOVE.............SUMMER NOW IS TURNING INTO AUTUMN............YES, A THIRD AUTUMN ALONE..............AND SO. THE MYSTERIES OF LIFE.
