THE COUNTDOWN

4 MORE DAYS TO GO UNTIL JIMMY COMES HOME FOR GOOD...............

IT IS NOW 9/13/06........WEDNESDAY

HE WILL BE HOME FOR GOOD ON MONDAY, 9/18/06

THE COUNTDOWN IS ON................

WE JUST CAN'T WAIT ...........

AT THIS POINT, THE TIME IS A LITTLE SLOW, AND SEEMS TO DRAG ON.

HOWEVER, JIMMY WILL STILL BE COMING HOME FOR HIS 12 HOUR FURLOUGH , THIS COMING FRIDAY.

HE WANTED TO COME HOME AGAIN ON SUNDAY, FOR ANOTHER FURLOUGH, BUT DOESN'T THINK HE CAN.............ONCE AGAIN THE ROOM IS BEING PUNISHED FOR SOMETHING LIKE A DIRTY ROOM................SO, AS I UNDERSTAND IT, THE FURLOUGHS HAVE BEEN CUT IN HALF FOR EVERYONE..

I EVEN TOLD JIMMY, IT IS OK, BECAUSE YOU WILL BE COMING HOME FOR GOOD ON MONDAY, THE NEXT DAY, ANYHOW...................HE STILL COMTINUES TO SAY, "FRAN, I AM SO MUCH IN LOVE WITH YOU, I HAVE TO SPEND EVERY MINUTE THAT I CAN WITH YOU."

WELL, WE ARE BOTH VERY MUCH IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER.................DESPITE 3.6 YEARS IN PRISON.............

IT IS A NICE FEELING TO LOVE SOMEOME SO MUCH, AND TO BE LOVED BY SOMEONE SO VERY MUCH.............

JIMMY IS REALLY HAPPY AND ELATED WHEN HE TALKS ON THE PHONE TO ME..................HE TELLS ME ALL DIFFERENT THINGS HE WOULD LIKE TO DO, WHEN HOME..

THE FIRST THING IS, HE WANTS TO STAY HOME WITH ME AS LONG AS HE CAN..................IN OTHERWORDS, HE WANTS TO LAY IN BED WITH ME, AND MAKE LOVE, OVER AND OVER.............................HE SAID IT MAY TAKE DAYS   :)

HE JUST DOES NOT WANT TO HAVE TO GO BACK, OR RUN FOR COUNT................HE SIMPLY WANTS TO RELAX WITH ME...................AND I FEEL THE SAME WAY............

NOW, SINCE I HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR, I WILL MAKE EVERYONE LAUGH!..................JIMMY HAS COME HOME ON AROUND 25 FURLOUGHS, SINCE AROUND MAY OR JUNE.  NOW, THOSE FURLOUGHS ARE 12 HOURS...............WE LAY IN BED WITH EACH OTHER FOR AT LEAST 6 HOURS EACH TIME ON THE 12 HOUR FURLOUGH.................THE FURLOUGHS WERE USUALLY TWICE A WEEK.................NOW, HEY, THAT WAS A LOT OF EXERCISE FOR ME  :)...................AFTER ALL, I AM A 53 YEAR OLD WOMAN!.....................BUT HEY, I WAS ABLE TO KEEP UP WITH MY HUSBAND!...............................LOL....................................AFTER ALL, A MAN IN PRISON NEEDS TO BE WITH HIS WIFE/WOMAN MORE THAN ANYONE CAN IMAGINE.........................WELL, WE HAPPEN TO BE IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER!

SO, NOW, WHEN HE COMES HOME ON MONDAY, WE WILL CLOSE THE DOOR, AND RELAX WITH EACH OTHER!

HE ALSO ASKED ME TO MAKE HIM HIS FAVORITE MEATLOAF, THAT I MAKE A SPECIAL WAY IN THE WOK, WITH GINGER ANBD GARLIC..................A READER ASKED FOR JIMMY'S RECIPES, AND I WILL  TRY AND GET HIM TO SHARE THEM WITH YOU.................HE IS A GOOD ITALIAN COOK!  HE LOVES PASTA...........ANY SHAPE, WAY, OR FORM.............SO, I'LL COOK SOME PASTA , TOO!

JIMMY CAN'T WAIT TO TAKE ME SHOPPING AT THE MALL, AND GO TO MACY'S, AND BUY ME SOME NEW CLOTHES..............HE LOVES TO SHOP FOR ME..............WE USED TO WALK IN THE WOMAN'S DEPT., AND JIMMY WOULD PULL OFF THE RACK SO MANY CLOTHES FOR ME..............THIS, THIS.THAT , THAT................HE WOULD BUY ME BUNDLES OF CLOTHES!...............PANTS, DRESSES, JACKETS, COATS......................AND OH YES, YOU SHOULD SEE HIM WITH ME IN THE LINGERIE DEPT!   :)  ...........HE USED TO BUY ME LOTS OF NIGHTIES, ETC..................HE LOVES IT, AND I DO TOO....................HE IS JUST A WONDERFUL MAN!.....................WHAT CAN I SAY!

AND OH YES, I KNOW HE JUST CAN'T WAIT TO TAKE ME TO THE BEAUTY PARLOR TO HAVE MY HAIR DONE!........

I GUESS I FORGOT ABOUT MYSELF THESE PAST FEW YEARS, BUT HE WILL BE HOME AGAIN, AND WILL PERK ME UP"

ANOTHER IMPORTANT THING, IS THAT WE WANT TO START GOING TO THE MOVIES ONCE AGAIN..............WE WILL GO NEXT WEEK, I'M SURE.....................WE USED TO SEE AT LEAST 1 TO 2 MOVIES PER WEEK..............AND OF COURSE, THERE IS THE POPCORN!

JIMMY HAS ALREADY SIGNED HIS RELESE PAPERS...........SO, IT WON'T BE LONG NOW...........

IN THIS JOURNAL, I HAVE ALWAYS SPOKEN ABOUT THE CONCEPT OF "TIME."  ONCE AGAIN, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY, TIME IS MAN MADE..............CLOCKS, LINEAR CALENDERS, ETC.................................BUT IN GOD'S WORLD, THE CONCEPT OF TIME DOES NOT EXIST.............................TIME IS ETERNAL.....TIME IS SPIRAL...............NEVER-ENDING.

AND SO, I BELIEVE THAT TIME CAN COMPRESS, AND EXPAND AT A PERSON'S WILL.  WHAT I AM SAYING IS THAT FOR JIMMY AND MYSELF, TIME HAS ACTUALLY COMPRESSED.  THAT IS, WHEN HE COMES BACK HOME ON MONDAY, I WILL ALLOW MY MIND TO THINK THAT JIMMY HAD ONLY GONE AWAY TO THE STORE, FOR A FEW MINUTES.THAT HE IS BACK HOME FROM THE STORE, AND LIFE GOES ON FOR US, AS IT SHOULD BE..................YES, TIME COMPRESSED INTO JUST A FEW MINUTES.............NOT THE 3.6 YEARS..........................YOU SHOULD TRY IT, MY PRISON WIVES, TO THINK OF IT IN THAT WAY......................HUBBY MAY BE AWAY, BUT IN YOUR MIND YOU CAN ACTUALLY COMPRESS TIME, AND IT WILL BE ONLY A FEW SECONDS OR MINUTES THAT HE IS AWAY, AND WILL RETURN HOME, VERY SOON............................GOD BLESS YOU ALL..........

Fran i'm so happy with you and Jimmy. I really like your perception of time. I have been thinking this same way, and it is really working for me. We have 15 months to go and i keep seeing it as right around the corner. Time will go by very quickley for us. Just think jimmy will be home for 12 hours and thats 12 hours down and just a few more and that's it. I think we would all like to hear from Jimmy when he gets home. Do you think he will be willing to write us all a little hello note that he's home.!!! Just an idea. My thoughts and prayers go out to you both. God Bless
