My New Years was good. I spent new years eve home with my mom and my daughter, had to toast the New Year with water b/c I am on antibiotics. And then I got to spend New Years day with my hubby. We had a good visit as always.
Hope everyone had a good holiday!

I hope everyone had a nice New Year's. It is 2005---WooHoo. While I don't want to wish my life away, I am not at all sorry to put 2004 in the record books. Yesterday was to be our wedding day, so after pouting for 1/2 the day, I decided to get over it and make the best of this unseasonably warm weather. I went shopping :p .

We are up for parole again this year...May this be a new beginning for us. Anyway enough on me. May 2005 prosper you!

Glad to hear ya'll had a good New Years... mine was good too, didnt get to see Bub, but i went and seen my mom, spent 3 days with her it was real nice.. i havent heard from Bub seince our last visit,i have wrote and wrote but nothing back.We are having problems, neither one of us trust eachother.. I juat pray that our Love is strong enough to get us through the next 24 months.I for one know that Trust is the # 1 factor in a good relationship so thats why im having such a hard time with this.Im finially getting together after the fire and all, i have so much going on in my life right now that it would be great if I had his support,But as it looks right now im not only alone physically, but also mentally. well enough of all this Its a New Year.. something good HAS to happen... God Bless ya'll... & Take care of ur selfs

I wanna send a shout out to all the women who have stood by their husbands and boyfriends for the past many years while they pull time in maximum security prisons.

I want to send a shout out to all the women who gon be gettin their lovin on by way of the FRP in the month of January.

I want to send a shout out to the cat of anyone here who has a cat at home.

I want to send a shout out to every female who flushes the toilet plus wraps then deposits her "napkins" in the trash can at Rikers the way I was taught by my mother because after the visitors start coming that Rikers ladies bathroom turns into one of the NASTIEST places ON EARTH.


And I want to send a special shout-out to my husband because his goal is to do right when he get out not only because he's just supposed to but because he'll do anything under the sun to get me to stop talkin about him and how he's acted on prior releases!! LOL

Peace....Starzzmom....glad to read that a FRP is forthcoming....sound like it will be a lot of fun for the family. To everyone else in this NY crew, Happy New Year! Hope everyone is well and are the families. Looking forward to a visit in Feb. My Beloved hangs tough in the theology program...as he says...he's bulit like that. My gems(children) are well. Will be in NYC soon...to hang with family. Hopefully before this year is over the NY crew can get together for a gathering. To all newcomers to this forum...we say WELCOME. Have not seen NastyBoo...hope you are still kicking butt and are well. Would ask that folk check out the Coaltion for Parole Restoration...its bulding as it works to make parole in NY a reality and not the joke it is...the organization needs workers. To NY and the rest of us that are conected to NY, like jenuwine and rywill...Stay Up! Blessings....

Hey Ladies I just wanted to start a new Check in for the new year! I hope that everyone is okay, as for myself, I am trying to stay focused on the goals that I have set for myself, I feel like I can really make things happen for myself, and my family. My new motto is failure is not an option!

Well enough about me, what's going on with you!:grouphug:

I just want to say that so far my New Year is going great! I graduated with my degree in Accounting in December. I found a job that I just started this week. I just had an interview for a job that I am not qualified for, but they are really interested in me and may be willing to train me.


Plus, I possibly will be able to see my baby whom I have not seen in over two years.

I'm not use to things working out for me, so this is a totally new experience. I hope that everybody else is doing well.

God Bless!

12th day... Im good, enrolled into school (college). excited about it. Im hangin out more often and having a good time, instead of sitting aroud be worried about everything. I've taken steps financially that will clear up my credit within six months, so that feels good, cause then i can get things cheaper and i can once again have money out my own check.. I get a bonus on my job, i found out i get an extra bonus for being at me job for five years... so that's two extra checks coming in.. heheh i love it.. the new year is great .......

good, good. here is my year's plans. :D

JOE WILL BE HOME THIS YEAR!!
I have to first start off with that. I cannot comprehend the numbers 2-0-0-5 without mentioning THAT homecoming!!! :D :D

I start school again on the 24th. I will be taking 5 classes and still working part time.

March will be a fantastic month!! LOTS of birthdays for my family, friends, and Joe's family.

PLUS my best friend will be graduating from Marine boot camp. I may be able to make it down there for the graduation, THEN she is coming home for a 'lil bit.

my friend Mike - Army - comes home from Korea.

Joe will HOPEFULLY be out of the box after over a year of hell.

that is all in March. ^^^ :D

as for the rest of the year... my best friend is coming up from VA Beach to stay with me during the summer. I will be turning 20. school. work. Hanson will be going on tour toward the end of the year. ;)

AND ONCE YA HIT SEPTEMBER FOR ME, time stops. my life will be COMPLETELY different 'cuz my HONEY will be HOME. freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. so I will let ya know what happen after that, that morning. ;)

Peace....Nice thread, Anthony'sWife....but then you do that well! I am good....assignments have changed at work, no problem...my motto with work is that its all in a day's work and I ain't taking anyone home with me and when I need to I raise caine. My gems are good. My daughter and I made some decisions regarding college...makes sense to allow her as much say-so as there would be more of an investment. Prayfully, she'll start in September. My son is doing OK in school and is every bit the teen...hair cut every two weeks, clean when he steps out, carries a hair brush and stays on his cell phone. Really pleased that he realizes that the SAT test is to be respected...it is hard so it requires some independent studying/preparing NOW. Guess I am a typical mother....wrote about children and little about myself. Plan to look, for real, for a part time job. Made more money last year than I ever made....where is it! My plan to to save...save and save some more. Have been asked and accepted the possition of a bridesmaid in a relative's wedding....so I plan to look sharp...than means to drop a few pounds. Have not started that struggle yet. Again, I like this thread....everyone should post, often. Has anyone seen or heard from Dutchess or NastyBoo??....if either one of you is reading...let us know. To all...Stay Up! Blessings...

My baby's coming home in 2005 and we're getting married. We have vowed to always put God first, and to live our lives serving Him.
I pray that 2005 is a healthy, happy, fulfilling year for all my PTO sisters!

Anthony'sWife
01-13-2005, 07:26 PM
I am so happy to know that all is well with my PTO fam, don't know what I would do sometimes if I didn't have this site, I swear it gives me hope, I love to hear when someone is coming home it lets me know that it is also possible for my husband aswwell. He has a lot of time but to be honest I will do all of it and then some with him, this lifestyle is for the average person, life itself is hard but when you add this into the mix well we all know it gets even more stressful, but I look back at all the time that has passed and I say wow, almost 9 years have gone by, and I remember the first time I met my husband like if it were yesterday, for real!!!!

LadyCee dont worry you will find your pace, it will all work itself out, trust me on this, and if you ever need to talk you can always pm me, ok!!!!

Congrats to all who have finished school, started school, found new jobs and all that good stuff, I woul like for us to keep a postive state of mind and definitely check in like Chinikfb suggested, And Chinikfb, sounds like you doing a great job with your Kids, I know it must be hard rasing teens, especially in this day and age, I have younger cousins that are simply wilding out and its not because they dont have father figures or lack of supervision, its simply becuse they want to, I'm tryin to be there for them but its difficult when they think they know everything, I hope the Lord gives me the strength to continue to fight along with the rest of the family to keep them on the right track!

Anyway ladies I just want to wish all of those who's men are coming home in the near future the best of luck and keep us posted on what happens ok!!!!

Peace
Anthony's wife

01-13-2005, 08:59 PM
Peace....Yes, this is a nice thread and one that needs to continue. So pleased that Dutchess is well...would like to know if the young warrior/NastyBoo is well. MrsG you continue to do well with this forum...you keep it alive and kicking. I, too, like to hear the good news, that we so rarely hear, that someone's loved one is coming home. Everyone realizes or should, that we are awesome women...and I suspect that the men in our lives are likewise....know mine is. Still like to see a little G2G for this crew...would really get a charge out of meeting all of you. Perhaps, these words will motivate someone who lives in NYC. My beloved just completed another administrative appeal...we are prayerful and hopeful. To all, Stay Up. Thanks, again, Anthony'sWife for putting this one out to the crew...like it! Blessings...

I guess I am a tad late in adding my two cents...but better late than never right? My New Year began great in church and has continued to be great. All is well down here in Atlanta. I graduated last month, finally earning that Master's degree that I started about 11 years ago. My babies are great, 13 & 15 year old "women". My other baby, my hubby, is great too. We are busy preparing for the board. It still is some time away; but we know that the better prepared we are, the better we will fare. I am walking by faith; but I just know, that he is going to be released. Like you said, Anthony'sWife...failure is not an option! I am just waiting to be led to be next life adventure. I don't know yet if it will be working on my Ph.D. or going back to work full time; but I am ready for wherever My Father leads me. Positivity is the key! Keep the faith ya'll!

Anthony'sWife
01-19-2005, 08:34 PM
I am so sorry that some of you ladies are going thru so much drama, its like the saysing goes when it rains it pours, Me and my hubby are working on his appeal, it is so tiring and stressful but I will do whatever it takes to get him home.

I have a younger cousin that is headed for jail or the grave if he doesnt staighten out his life, he is only 21, has a step son who is 2 yrs old a daughter who is 1 yrs old and can you believe another one on the way very soon, I myself have no children yet, not for a lack of trying,(lol) just not my time yet I guess, but anyway I just dont know what to do, I try to talk to him and try and guide him but its as if I am talking to a solid brick wall, I know that his girlfriend wants to give the new baby up for adoption and apart of me wants to take that responsibility on but then I dont know if I can handle it, my cousin was supposed to be coming to live here with me , my mom, and my uncle, my mom is very ill, so I take care of her, and my uncle helps out, now my cousin says he coming with the baby to live here as soon as his girlfriend has the baby, I just dont see how that is going to happen, he has no job, he stays out all hrs of the night, and mind you we just got back in contact with him; he had been MIA for 4 yrs so alot has happened since we last saw eachother, I just needed to vent and some advice, I just dont know what to do,

i do read all of your posts on here but sometimes i just dont have the time to post too much myself! keep up the good work ladies and gents ;) and may 2005 bring alot of sunshine to all of our lives and FREE our loved ones :rolleyes:

Nuro's Wife glad to hear your N.Y started out great. congrads on the degree and good luck with the board.

Buds sorry to hear of the hit from the board and your hit from the monster, stay strong gurl thats another way of trying to hold us down, I'm sure I can speak for all of us and say, we are here when you need us.

Anthony's wife wish I had some advice to offer, hae a 20yr old myself and still wondering what in the world do they be thinking that move as if they have no direction in life. They are the lost Gene. I can say this you stay strong for you cause no matter what they will do them, while we lay sick and tired of fighting for them. Don't get me wrong I'm not saying we are suppose to turn our backs on they or let them hurt themself to no end but we have to take care of ourselfs alil more so we can be there when they fall that one time to many.

Peace.....Well, Nasty, I am so glad that you are still among the kicking. Not surprised that you have been busy with political work....continue to struggle. Anthony'sWife...sounds like you have a lot on your plate....remember, sometimes our plate is full because we allow it. Your young relative needs to be responsible. The plan of him moving into your space does not sound like a good one to me...sounds like it will present more issues/problems. Sometimes we have to practice tough love with the people around us. Bubslildevil...you take care of yourself...follow up with treatment and stay as balanced as possible. Will keep you in prayer. Nuro'sWife...I know about preparing for the board...not to the extent that you do in relationship to your hushand...yet on other levels. Prayfully, this will be the year your husband is released. LADYCEE....good seeing you around the forums. To everyone else...Stay Up! Blessings...

Well for me, my new year has been great for the most part with a couple downs....but I am so focused on my baby, he has been great. We've gotten so close and we were engaged on 12/28/04 so we will be married this year and I am excited about that. :D
However, I have been down, just missing him has been so overwhelming and we have a ways to go before we go to the parole board so right now I am just trying to figure out ways to make this time easiest for both of us...mainly speaking of the distance between us.

Hi Mrs G! And everyone else. All is well around here, got thru that snow storm, But still paying the price everytime I have to park the car, someone keeps taking the nicely shoveled spot I left. I swear this snow will be around till June! Can't wait for the week to be over, going to see my hubby on Saturday! I miss him like crazy!

Hey Everyone! I have to admit that I am not missing the SNOW!!! It has been pretty cold down here, but thankfully there is no snow. I do have my boots and stuff ready though as I head to NY next week to see my hubby. I am trying to get over this slight cold I have before then. All else is well.

Hello All...it has been very quiet around here. Is it the weather or are some of you feeling under the weather? I am really sick of the snow, ice, and cold. I love the change of seasons but I have had enough for the year.

Anyone have special plans for Valentine's Day? I can't say that I do--but if the weather breaks, I will be on the road doing 80 mph on I-90.:p

01-28-2005, 10:06 AM
Peace....What's shakin' NY...hope all is well and that everyone is managing inspite of the snow. Be safe this weekend. Make Valentine's day a special one, regardless of our/your loved one's missing in action status. Hope NY can plan a G2G sometime after the cold and snow rush. Blessings...

Hey everyone! Just wanted to say whats up to My NY family! I've been having trouble getting on/staying on PTO for a while now. Not sure if it's the site or my stupid computer, or a little of both! ANyway, all is well over here. Same old, same old.
Got to see hubby two weekends in a row, ond day without my daughter (for his birthday) - that was a treat! And I'm going again this weekend for Valentines Day! He is soo spoiled! Hope everyone got out this past weekend, and enjoyed the heat wave we are having! I heard it's back to winter towards the end of the week! Enough already! Anyway, hope all is well with everyone! Take care, be careful!

Hi Everyone. Just checking in. All is well down here in Atlanta. Just came back from our trailer...had a great time. The weather was good. I have been busy with work and also looking for a new job. I am looking in the DC, Maryland, Virginia area. Looking for a job is really a fulltime job. It is taking up a lot of time; but I know its all worth it. I have to get closer to my hubby. This distance really sucks!!! Wish me luck and keep me in your prayers. Thanks.

How's everyone doing? Happy President's Day....

I made it to see my sweetie this weekend. I was so excited...I left the car lights on and when I came out my battery was dead.:p Well, once I got in to see him, he was so excited....

Anyway, I had a wonderful visit. I made it through a snow storm on the way home. And I can't wait to see him again.

Oh yeah, I had the best experience with volunteers and staff at this facility. It made the drive and visit a lot less stressful.

Peace....What's shakin' NY....do hope that everyone is well as are the loved ones. Had a wonderful visit with my Beloved on the 13th. He is well and hanging tough with the theology program. Looking to hear from him either by mail or telephone. Miss him. Will more than likely see him in April. Book club met Friday...read J. California Cooper's lastest book, Some People Some Other Place. Excellent read. If you have not read anything by her...treat yourself. My gems are well, typical teens. May be part of another group...a women support group. What happened is that I had launched a discussion with some women about the question of unditional love. We then decided to meet outside of work at someone's home to further discuss issues. There will, of course be food, and we decied to throw some margaritas in the lot. Its all about supporting and developing. Looking forward to the NYC g2g in June. Will be nice seeing folk and bonding/relating on another level. To all, Stay Up and Strong! Blessings....

Hey Mrs.G and all you New Yorkers. I decided to kick my shell off today, I have been in a crabby mood. It must be this weather. I love the season changes, but I have had enough of winter, and snow, and cold. I hope everyone is ok. How is Stormie? The last post I saw from her she was off for her frp and worrying about salt.... I hope she had a great time.

Hey everyone! I've been lurking around lately but with all the server problems I haven't been able to post much! And now this week I have been sick as a dog. Think I have a touch of the flu. Feeling somewhat better today. Hope all is well with everyone, staying warm and dealing with the snow (It really can be over already - I'm am soooo ready for Spring!!!) Everyone is fine over here, Starr is doing fine - missing her daddy a lot lately, and she is starting to act out. I think as she is getting older, she is realizing a little more that Daddy isn't coming home soon, and it's bothering her. Not sure how to deal with it. Hubby is good - maintaining and staying out of trouble - he is not trying to risk getting those trailers taken away! Still debating if we should bring Starr on our next one, I'm leaving that up to him. Already have the babysitter lined up just in case.
Well just wanted to say hi and everyone be safe and take care of yourselves and your loved ones. Hope to see most of you at our NY G2G in June!

Just checking in with my New York Family.. I am doing fine so are my boys. Looking for another job. I want to relocate back to NYC, tired of living in Boston where they dont clean up the streets or sidewalks after a snowstorm. Claims this city dont have any money in the budget for that.. WTF?????? they have no clue what dept of sanitation is.

NE way in search of a job. if anyone of my sistas here can help me submit my resume to where you are working let me know. Or send me a Pm..

Things here are as busy as ever...work work and more work. Just got over strep in time to dig myself out of this never ending snow!!! :blah: :rolleyes:

I've been feeling real upbeat lately. Due to the Rockefeller reform...my honey is going to the board two months early...which means NEXT MONTH!!! :eek:

I am beyond hopeful and too excited for words. I am just trying to keep myself from fretting over everything and aiming at being positive. At the very least it's an extra chance for him to come back home to me. :D

Hope everyone is doing well...warm and fuzzy thoughts for all of you!!! :D

Peace....Dance one for me...to all of you who will visit this weekend and to the rest of us...have a good weekend...do something nice and good for yourself! Had hoped to receive a letter this day, rywill, did not. You know on a serious tip...this relationship we are in really rest on letters, visits and telephone calls. Each has its magic. The letters are the tangible items...you can read and re-read over and over...sometimes for many..its keeps us going. Feel some kind of way when I do not receive one during the week. It happens infrequently...we have that understanding..so I trust that its the school work...I just hope he is not sick. Last letter indicated that so many were sick and the last call of a little over a week ago..his voice was hoarse. To those who have a FRP...have fun and really enjoy all of the magic....you women are Blessed in that you have that. I pray that God's will be done regarding parole and that our loved ones and we will do what we need to do to make that a reality. Hope to see most of you at the g2g. Hope Dutchess and NastyBoo are well. Take care to all. Blessings...

Things are not going so well for me and hubby right now ... I think we have both reached a point where we are just tired. I was going for a visit this past weekend but got a letter from him on Thursday that made me change my mind. He was venting and frustrated and I guess b/c I'm the closest one to him it all spewed out on me. And I do understand that a time comes where this happens ... he's been locked up for 13 years and it is definitely taking it's toll. I try to be as sympathethic as I can to his situation but at times like these I don't feel like I'm getting the same in return. The reality is, it is difficult to sustain a marriage behind all of that barbed wire and concrete from both sides. He deals with things which I can't even imagine and I deal with things that he hasn't a clue about. I haven't responded to his letter b/c I'm too angry by what he wrote and I don't want to make a rash decision or say something I cannot take back. When we got married we promised that it would be for life and it has always seemed doable ... until now. We've been through tough times before but the difference is that this time I feel like I don't want to fight for the relationship anymore ... in his letter he told me to just "go ahead and do you" and I am to the point now that I'm actually considering it. And I never, ever thought that I would arrive at that point ... I thought I was strong enough to handle the dysfunctional, artifical prison life but these days that is all coming into question. I love him with everything I have but 2008 seems so very far away right now and the great possibility that love is not enough to get us through until then looms large in my thoughts. I don't want us to be a casualty of the system ... I think I just need to be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel ...

Hey Guys!!

Finally some nicer weather here in NY!!! A little sun goes a long way. :D At least makes me less cranky! :thumbsup:

As most of you know last week was a really crappy one. We found out the supplementary board was NOT happening, that the application put in almost 3 months ago for work release was an error and he's NOT eligible, and his counselor "forgot" the paperwork for his transfer and he has to wait until the 23rd to start that process. I fought with his counselor over all of this mess last week, and got a snotty answer of "God what's the big deal, He's only serving a 1 and 1/2 to 3. :eek: Like that is even the POINT!!! GRRRRRRRR :angry:

My Sweetie is the best though, and I think I was more bent out of shape then he was. :o I am sort of over it now, but not really.... LOL The corrections system is such a crock....I am SO SICK of it I could puke. :yuck: Thank GOD he goes to the board in June...so close yet never close enough you know? I just want him home again. :(

But anyway, tomorrow is a visit!!! :yay: Soooooooo I am calm....for the moment at least!!! :p I just got back from Atlantic City today...I won $120, but I got into a fender bender...GO FIGURE!!!! Everything else is same ol' same ol'! :)

All my love and good vibes for everyone else!!!! :thumbsup:

Hi everyone! Happy Spring!
Besides the fact that I am missing my hubby something fierce. I had a nice weekend. Me and Starr spent it out on the island with my best friend. We went and met the easter bunny, and she went on a pony ride, and colored a goose egg, and on Sunday we went to the circus. On Saturday nite the girls stayed up till 3a.m. gossiping and laughing, and drinking, It was a good weekend. Parts of it made me miss hubby more, b/c he should've been with us doing all the kiddie stuff.

Thank God the snow is outta here!!!!

Hey New York. :wave: Shavonne from Albany here. How is everyone?? Hope everyone is having a good holiday.

As for me...things are "okay". Hubby is kinda down because his daughter isnt understanding that he is married now and that when he is released, he isn't going to be living with her. Her mother is a few choice words I can't say here at PTO :nospeak: ...and influences the daughter a lot, who will then in turn pull the guilt trip on my husband. I have never dealt seriously with a man with children before, so this is all new to me, and I cant help but to feel as if I am coming between a man and his child, and I know thats NOT the case, because I have offered to pick his daughter up and bring her with me to visit him. But her mother is upset that Jerrod has moved on, and its not with her, so she is using her daughter to get what she wants. I just hate to see him stressed, especially when he is so close to the board because he needs to be focusing on that without any negative interference. This puts such a burden on me as a wife because here I am doing everything in my power to keep him focused, preparing him, plus I feel as every day we are getting closer and closer, so our bond right now is unbelievable. Just when I think I love him as much as a person can love, I love him more. So when he is feeling down, she shuts out the closest person to him...ME. I haven't heard from him since Wednesday which pissed me off. Anyway...I plan to go see him next weekend. :o

ANYWAY....sorry for the long winded response....but hope everyone is good!! I hope to see some of you at the NY G2G in June...cuz I will be there! :) :)

HELLO, YOU Freaken HIRED ME FOR 9-5, NOT 8:30-6...and hello, I have a life and I bust my a** here, and I DONT GET A LUNCH HOUR!!!! I eat at the phone, at my desk and mind you, AT like 1 or 2, And I do come in 8:45 and leave most days at 5:15...today I left at 5:30...

Not to mention, she took me aside a few weeks ago and told me "You are a great worker but ...You don't do enough" WHA??? I was floored, but I smiled and said nothing... You just want me to be a fool, and work for free...and I should kiss your a** for a xmas bonus??? please!! I do my job and then some, and I am doing too much work if you ask me, all I do is sleep all weekend, and I don't mind working hard at all, ok, but dont make comments like this to me, and show some appreciation! It is so UNNECCESSARY! Not only that but she always makes comments like this and ask's me to do work that is not mine and calls me out IN FRONT of people all the time...AND when she says thanks, it is so phony!!!!!! :blah:

Then if you dare take a day off you gotta here it from EVERYONE! and you think they help YOU? no! All that work is piled up when you get back!

I am just so upset :angry: :blah: :mad: :slap: :sneeze: :shake: :argh: :nono: :no: :hmm:

I am really going through it right now. First, the phone is getting ready to go off, I can't pay this bill. It is now over 1300. I'm depressed about that.
Then last week my man had me worried sick. He was having dizzy spells. They say he has vertigo caused by some type of buildup or something in his inner ear, but now he's on medication and its helping. He's been feeling better.
I have been there to see him 3 times this month including yesterday..a total of 1200 miles this month. I woke up with a feeling that I hate this morning. Like I don't want to think about anything else, I don't want to go to work and I can't function right. I can't explain this feeling, anyone know what I mean? All i can think about is the next time i will see him which will probably be another 3 weeks.
I was supposed to be at work at 730 and i called to tell them i ll be there by 10. i'm a mess because i need to be working these hours because payday i ll be stressing becuase i dont have enough.
what the hek is wrong with me?
how do i snap out of this?
sorry, i had to vent. i'm in misery right now.

i just spoke to him, we have until thurs night with the phone, it's being disconnected friday morning :( until hopefully next month. he let me go so i can take my butt to bed and force myself up in the morning to go into my job which i hate....i could go on.

i finally got to see my love after 6 months of not seeing him. the last time i saw him, he was at clinton, but is now at elmira. it was an exhausting quick overnight run to elmira, but well worth the trip. i drove 4 hours on easter sunday afternoon, battled hella traffic, and finally arrived in elmira at around 6:00. after being in the car for 4 hours, what's the first thing one wants to do? go to the bathroom right? well that i did and wound up getting locked in the bathroom! something was wrong with the bathroom lock (at the Holiday Inn--do not stay there for several reasons). thank goodness my best friend rode with me or else i would have been twisted sitting locked in a bathroom for who knows how long. after my girlfriend had no luck trying to pry open the door with a hanger, the front desk woman finally showed up with her own hanger talking about this happens all the time which is why Holiday Inn keeps a good hanger on hand. unbelievable right? anyway, i finally got out only to have a nervous stomach all night b/c i was seeing my sweetheart the next day. anyway, i woke up to a rainy day. climbed all those elmira stairs, got to the visit at 8:30 only to see Kay at almost 10am. during he visit an alarm went off and the "inmates" had to momentarily be segregated, which sucked, but overall we had a wonderful visit, although we did have a brief spat that we got past (lately he seems to be having trust issues concerning me). i was pissed, but i understand where the insecurity comes from so i accepted his apology and we moved on. drove back on monday in the blinding rain, as i talked to him on my cell (call forwarding) during the last hour of my drive while he thanked me for coming to see him on his birthday, constantly told me to drive safely, and said, "I love you babe," as i neared my house. love him to death. can't wait to see him again. hope all of you ladies had a good easter.

Hey everyone! Hope all of you that were stressin' are feeling better now.
As for me, I am great! I got to see my hubby this weekend and we had a great time, despite the fact that he is in Southport and we had that darn "cage" to deal with. It was so good to see him and talk to him and kiss him. I am still on cloud 9!! Beleive it or not, it was one of our best visits! And I know he was very happy about the visits too. He thought I was only coming up on Sunday, but I showed up on Sunday at 10 a.m. And then i surprised him with my new tattoo, his name -he was so happy about that. Our relationship is getting better and better, and I'm loving every minute of it! i am so happy right now :happy: :happy: :dance: :dance:

but now its going to be another month before i see him again :(

btw do you coming back it took 6 hours..all the traffic and accidents yesterday was crazy. going it only took me 3 hours and 20 mins. ugghh.

Hey everyone ... hope the weekend was good. I went on a visit on the spur of the moment ... 900 miles roundtrip! Visit was overdue since I hadn't been since December. I'm just so ready for his butt to be home; I love him to life just don't love all it takes to get there, ya know? Anyway, I made it there and back safely and we had a good visit so that's what counts right?

Hi all. Went to see my hubby yesterday, it was nice. I was surprised at how "empty" the visiting room was at 5 points. I was totally expecting a mob, but it was actually nice. A lot more people then when I saw him during the week, it was like a library almost that day. He's doing fine, so am I. We've got a long road ahead of us, but we will prevail. Hope you all are doing well, and yours are fairing well too...the light at the end of the tunnel may be dim, but at least it is still on.:rolleyes:

Hi everyone!! I've been around. I check in everyday.
All is well. Just dealing with hubby being in the box and not being able to see him that often or talking to him. But I must admit he is doing really great with the letter writing! I have been getting at least 4 letters a week, if not more. He's maintaining, counting the days till he gets out of there - only 14 more days!!!!
I'm getting ready for a little much needed vacation. Going to Puerto Rico to spend some time with his parents. I leave in 2 weeks for 8 days. Can't wait!
Otherwise everyone else is good.
Hope all is well with you all!

Happy Tuesday to you all. I have not been on much lately. I have been feeling a little stressed lately. Maybe because here comes another summer of family vacations and fun. Nonetheless I am looking for the warm weather to come back. This almost freezing at night is getting to me and I was hoping to get rid of the heating bill.

I'll be in western New York this weekend. I leave out tomorrow night and I get to see my prince for a couple of days. If you believe in prayer, say one for us... we need it. We are working on the yet another parole package.

Take care...

I haven't been around much over the past week. I started a new job on Monday while also working my old job too. I have been working about 14 hours a day plus I have to put in some hours this weekend as well. I have to maintain this schedule for the rest of May. Yeah, the money is great :D but I hope my poor body holds up!

I guess it must be in the air. I'm feeling it too. Stephen has done nothing but irritate me the last week. It's all about him, god that infuriates me. Oh, I know he's dealing with a tough situation, but he picks the little things to "fight" about. He knows how to push my buttons and does when he is feeling unappreciated. Sometimes I just want to lug in a big ole wooden cross so he can climb on up and nail himself to it when he gets like that. We had a visit yesterday and his attitude didn't change, then he didn't call last night (after he said he was going to, because "talking to my wife is more important than anything else") well i guess that ship sailed, because the f*&^er didn't call. So I spent most of the night tossing and turning, and was awake at 1:30am and 3:30am, after nightmares, all because he's being an ass... thanks for listening.

WOW..You too? Then there is definitely something in the air. Sometimes their situation gives them TOO much time to think. Then they start thinking things that aren't there, or are looking into things so much and making it an issue. I am not one for arguing, or dwelling on issues. I like to talk about it, and get it over with. He sees it as I am avoiding the issue..its not that, but I am not going to sit here and fuss with you for weeks on end, because you will be talking to yourself. LOL.;)

tuttles
05-11-2005, 10:17 AM
TOO much time to think is absolutely right. I try not to react to his little hissy fits, because I know they are motivated by him "checking" that I really love him and nothing will send me walking. But he does aggrivate me. I also think he "likes" to make me mad, because apparently if I'm not screaming, I don't care. MEN!!!!:rolleyes:

PowandVonne
05-11-2005, 10:31 AM
Girl I know! My husband I think likes to see my mad too. He claims its sexy when I have an attitude and get lippy. But this time was different, he had things goin on with him that made me mad. :angry: I mean so mad, I didnt go to work for 2 days because all I could do was cry out of anger. He called me late last week and he apologized for upsetting me, but he still has a stank attitude to him.


I went to see him on Sunday. We had a nice visit and lots of laughs, but could still see that things are bothering him. This parole hearing is really getting to him, the time winding down. He is really bothered by the fact that he MAY not come home,and he doesn't think its fair to make me wait another 2 years for him. I told him that I knew when I married him, that there was a chance he wouldnt be home this year, and I am prepared to handle that. I love him, and am goin to be by his side no matter what. Its gonna take A LOT more than a parole denial to get rid of me. :p LOL

rywill
05-11-2005, 12:46 PM
PowandVonne we are going through some of the same things as far as parole worries. His is in August and when I saw him this past weekend he had all the staticitcs of the people that didn't make it that had just gone to the board the month before. And there were several that went last week and had not gotten their reply back.

When he was denied before and even during the preparation for it, he became real withdrawn. It seemed like his focus was solely on the board ane me which I understand. I think I took it worse than he did and that was another of his fears. It's funny how they can deal with all the adversity in there but the possible rejection from us makes them do some crazy stuff.

I just mailed my support letter this week. And as I types it (trying not to be skeptical) I wondered what does it take for these letters to be viewed as real, authenticate and genuine beliefs from the people reading them. The last time he appeared before the board they complimented him on his package and how well written it was as if it were not true.

It's it the air for us too, the only difference is we are still on the marriage high. Even when I saw him this weekend I swear he asked if I was okay a million times. It's hard on both sides to love someone so much you don't want to hurt them; and yes, this prison stuff is often painful. But also, no matter how much I love him, express it, console, and encourage I am not behind that wire day after day, and year after year. My honey has been there almost 11 years too. And the fight in him is still strong which is what makes him get so emotionally twisted at this time.

Girl, just pray. Pray and pray somemore. He gave me a necklace as a wedding gift that has a mustard seed in it. And the scripture on the back is from Matthew 17:20. I believe that it's possible to make it out, intack, as friends, partner, lovers, spouses and supporters and look ahead!

Peace...What's shakin' NY....as always I hope everyone is doing well. My gems are well; one is moving into the college arena and the other one takes the SAT test. The blessing is that both is healthy. I am enjoying this wheather...think we all are. Still attend book club meetings...the last book was Babylon Sisters, by Pearl Cleage, a favorite author of mine. I enjoyed the book so much that I shared my review of it with many from my e-mail list. Work is work...had to remind a couple of people that all people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. And I challenged another about his racist views....I do that well. Just really disappointed that I have not heard from my friend in a few months. Its been years since that happened. I know he is alive as I speak with his mother often. Decided to send a card with a note. I think that it has got to be one of the hardest thing to go thru...being away from your loved ones and doing all that you know to do only to be met with, time after time, a rejection of parole. My mind can not fathom what that head trip is. So lock down is what they do and in some ways it is to protect them...their person and sanity. Yet, I miss my friend and await his return. Treated myself to the movie Crash....really a very good movie...treat yourself. To all, stay up! Blessings...

It is....the first one, was hard, and we got through the two next years....but the next one was bad...it's affects are still with us a year later, a permanant affect it seems. That rejection really hurt him. It is like telling them, no matter what you do, you are a reject. Nothing you did all those years matters, you don't matter....I cannot imagine. And it hurts for us to be powerless to help them.

So since he has been rejected he dropped off and stopped writing? I am sorry, he will come around :)

Happy Monday! Today is my 2nd wedding anniversary ... kind of bittersweet since we've been going thru drama lately. Had a disagreement last night as a matter of fact ... don't know if he'll call back tonight or not ... we shall see.

The effects of parole denial are way deep for both us and them ... we are looking at our 3rd coming up in October and it's like, "why even bother?" Perhaps as the time draws closer I'll be able to drum up a little more enthusiasm but I really don't want to get my hopes up only to have them crushed again. He handles it better than me but even as strong as he is it does put a dent in his armor ... I'm hoping things get better for all of us soon! :grouphug:

It seems like things have been up and down around here... I guess that's normal. I don't know what the heck is wrong with me, I have been forgetting stuff and losing things. I feel like the scarecrow.

Things have been okay. I have no complaints that others aren't experiencing. It's nice to see people dropping in and posting. Good job there chinikfb with those precious gems of your growing up and moving forward. My little prince is making getting out of elementary school painful. I am not sure if I likes it the first time, but I am sick of all the homework. I know it will eventually pay off.

Glad to see some got to visit this past weekend and others have visits coming up this week. I won't get to visit again until mid-June. I am so looking forward to seeing his face and getting a hug. I hope everyone has a blessed week, full of encouragement and joy!

I didn’t get to see my husband this weekend, and I have seen him every weekend since October. I was a little sad, because I look forward to seeing him all week! I will be 37weeks pregnant next weekend and I am not sure if I should drive so far away from home :( I don’t know when I will see him again!

Starzzmom – hey girl! How you doing?

Rywill – Congratulations on your wedding!

Nuro’swife – you got that right! About A MOTHER’S JOB IS NEVER DONE! :)
Have you taken any time off yet?

MissOne – Hey girl!

Chinikfb – how are you doing? I haven’t seen you around for a while! I am about to have this baby, so maybe when I am off for 6 weeks we can do lunch! :)

Trescheek – happy belated aniversary!

Bntonyb – I will say a prayer for you! Good luck!

Mrs G – Hope you have a good time with your friend! I am dying to go out! I haven’t been out since October 2004! And after this baby, I don’t think I will see the light of day again!

Nina38 – glad you got to see your son!

Hope everyone is enjoying their Memorial Day Weekend!

Had a visit yesterday, it was great. He was in a really good mood, and we even managed to get "some of the air cleared" between us. Didn't sit outside, I'm not a fan of sun or heat, he said that was fine. I know he was a little bummed about not being outside, but maybe next visit.

What's up out there... I am so glad to see nice weather. Cottaintail I wish you two much sucess. I bought a dance video about six months ago, I think it was called Exotic Dance for the Everyday Woman. I spend so much time laughing at myself, i have yet to finish a routine. I figure by the time he makes it home, i will be creative enough to dance for about a minute and a half, cause that's about all he will be able to stand.:p

tuttles, gald you enjoyed the visit and cleared the air. I hope you had a nice make-up kiss to seal it.

Mrs.G you sound so excited to get ready for your anniversary visit. It's nice to hear you back to your upbeat self.:D

bntonyb does he like the faciltiy any better or is it too early to tell. My sweetie is going through a rough time right now.

LadyCee, I didn't get to visit this weekend either. My plan is to surprise him this Sunday. I was going to go Father's Day weekend, but I think it will be very crowded and that Saturday is a festival, so we won't be expecting me. I love to see him "blush" when he sees my face. You be careful traveling!

PhillyGurll be careful. You are getting very close to that due date. My birthday is close to your due date, so just know you have a special baby boy coming!!!:)

I hope everyone has a great week!I know I will 'cause I'll be visiting my Baby!!WooHoo,that first hug & "real" kiss will be sweet!!Try & stay cool all!Take Care,B

Cottontail...where are u located in the Capital Region? I am in Albany, and I would love to take that exotic dancing class. LOLOL. Good luck with the hearing.

Well I went to see the hubby yesterday. He has been under a lot of pressure lately with this hearing coming up in 6 weeks. So he has been shutting me out. So yesterday's visit was very nice. We talked and laughed all day long. The last few visits have been so tense, I was not looking forward to going yesterday. But I am so glad I did. We talked about all the issues that have been silently been brewing between us and got that out in the open and out the way. He called me last night to make sure I made it home safely and told me that he was reminded on the visit why he fell in love with me, and chose to spend the rest of this life with me. He said he feels so much better,and that he has been feeling and is praying day in, and day out to make this parole hearing because it's time we be together.

I sure hope these 6 weeks go by fast. If he gets paroled...I got my work cut out for me. There is NO closet room for him. That means I gotta go through all my clothes and shoes to make space for him...LOLOL.

Can't wait to see those attending the NYG2G in a couple weeks!

Hey everyone! Hope you are all doing weel, enjoyed your weekends, visits, and this nice weather. I'm good! I'm still happy from seeing hubby this weekend, I went to my Weight watchers meeting and lost 2.6 lbs this week, AND I got a call for an interview for Monday (trying to transfer to another dept. at my job) SO everything is going in a good direction for me.
Phillygirl, rub that belly for me! you're getting close now. Glad you got to visit hubby one more time!

Manzanita
06-08-2005, 05:09 AM
does anyone hate being alone out here sometimes??? UGH!!! I am alone alot ..when I go to work, come home, walk the dog...and I have not had a problem with men bothering me lately, but yesterday some dude wanted to walk with me, he lives on my block, and he has a dog too. I did not want to be rude, so I said ok to walk with him a few blocks, and then he is asking me, when do I get home from work, so he can walk with me... BLAH! He said he has seen me on the train I take to work, sees where I walk my dog...weird! Now I have to get stuck telling him to leave me alone! I cannot say I am married, because I am ALONE! :(

I hate these situations, and then I wonder when I come home and guys see me with my husband, will they say hello and have my husband thinking I had some kind of thing with him? I do not talk to ANY guys at all, and around here, there is NO WAY! I know it seems far fetched, but they can be paranoid in there. If I told him about this, he would probably wonder and look at me funny. LOL....

How do I tell this guy to go away when he always sees me alone? I wish I could just have a guy for rent, for times like this to just keep away the other ones, LOL...

rywill
06-08-2005, 06:55 AM

Yes, I sometimes feel that I dislike being alone, which is more like I miss him being here. I actually love time alone--I can be social but then I can withdraw as well.

I cannot say I am married, because I am ALONE! :(

You can say that you are married and that your husband is away, which is true. I have guys try to pick me up often (the grocery store, the car wash, the park). I don't know maybe I have that "need attention" sign on my forehead.:p But I tell them that I am married and before we were married I told them that I was in a committed relationship and that he lives in another state if the conversation went any further. Of course some of those knuckleheads will still try to step to you and try that what he doesn't know won't hurt him thing, but I set the distance. I have some male friends also that I have been friends with since high school and college.

He sounds a little aggressive and he has been watching you a little too much or maybe that's me. If he just wants some friendly conversation and you feel like, you can set the tone. But if he is trying to date the gorgeous Mrs.G, then he needs to know that Mr. G adores you far more!;)

How do I tell this guy to go away when he always sees me alone? I wish I could just have a guy for rent, for times like this to just keep away the other ones, LOL...

oh, he will not be getting a date for sure! LOL ...yes there are plenty of knuckleheads that will say, if you are married, where is he? That what he doesnt know won't hurt him...OH PLEASE!!

being out here in the city you never know what perverts or weirdos are watching you all alone....this is what bugs me, feeling unprotected. with my baby here, I would feel so much safer...

LMAO!!! I thought I was the only one that talkes about smackin fire out somebody. :p

Well on my block, there are always dudes on the stoop at the house next door to me. They saw me in my dress the day I got married, yet they have never seen my husband, so they are like "hmmmm". They ask where my husband is, I tell them his is away, but will be back soon. So they leave it at that. I have a big brother that comes by to check on me every few days, and he is 6'7 300+ lbs, so everyone pretty much knows not to mess with me. LOL

I will say that some men just do not care if you are married or not. I want to tell them "my husband has an attempted murder charge under his belt, do you REALLY want to mess with him?" LOL But I refrain, say no thanks, flash my award winning smile, and keep it moving. :D

HEY Everyone! I’m sitting at home soooooooooo bored today! :o Usually I take one day on the weekend to clean and the next to visit. I’m not going away from home this weekend because I am too close to labor. TMI, but I lost my mucus plug at visit last weekend, I’ve been lightly bleeding since then and I am 3cms dialated and 80% effaced. I have been like that for a week with back pains, so I know the baby is coming. I found out some bad news though at my appointment on Wednesday. :( Maybe it is not so bad because they said the same thing with my daughter. I measured 32weeks and I was almost 38 weeks. They think the baby is measuring small. They said I would need to get in right away for an ultrasound, but they didn’t schedule it until this Monday….so Monday I go for an ultrasound, if the baby is small they are going to induce me on Monday. I measured the same with my daughter and she was 6lbs. 7oz. The reason they want to induce me if he is too small is because they think he will grow more outside the womb. I think it’s all dumb because I will probably have him before they schedule all this anyway! I can’t wait! My little Julito is coming! :D My husband was able to call me yesterday at the neighbors, he is soooooo excited! I've NEVER seen him like this, or heard him like this :D I am having problems with a name though! He insists on Julio Miguel….Julio is his name and Miguel is his brother’s name. I wanted to add my dad in there, my dad is Edward Robert….so now I don’t know what to name him??? Julio Miguel Robert, Julio Miguel Edward, or Julio Miguel Edward Robert…LOL….my husband doesn’t care as long as it’s Julio Miguel something LOL…What do you guys think sounds best? Ughhhhh…. For those of you that have had babies, have you heard of this before? I read an article on the internet that said you can not have an epidural if you have a tattoo on your lower back. :eek: I have a tattoo covering my whole lower back, I am so scared now! I didn’t get an epidural with my daughter and did it natural, I NEVER want to do that again! The article said that the ink from the tattoo can somehow get in your spine. Anyone heard of this? I will be so glad when this is all over and I have my lil Julito in my arms! My family is calling him Pookey already LOL… :)

Ladycee – thanks!

Bntonyb – thanks, I am!

MrsG – hope your enjoying that trailer visit! Wow, what I would do for a trailer ;) Let us know how it went when you get back! About the men, I know what you mean! I’m 9 months pregnant and the men on my block bother me. :confused: One man tells me everyday that he is wating for me….I told him I was married and he asked where my husband was. I said prison. Maybe I shouldn’t of said that :( I told him he will be here very very soon though! LOL….Most of the guys on my block know my situation and know who my husband is. I’ve been living here for three years. They still flirt though! I’m a little bit rude and try to cut converstion short because I don’t want them talking to me when I am walking by with my husband. He will think I talked to them all the time when he was gone, I know how he thinks! I can’t say I feel alone though, I have way too much family around me…mom, dad, sister, nephew, neice, daughter, son on the way and some of my husband’s family here in philly and they ALL bug me all the time!
I cannot say I am married, because I am ALONE! :(
Yes you can! It doesn’t matter, they don’t need an explanation or to know where your husband is at! Usually I just say I am married, sometimes I can let the conversation go too far and say he is in prison. But then I think, I don’t owe anyone an explanation about where my husband is at! Then again, they don’t care if your married or not! I don’t live in the best part of PHILLY and I had something scary happen to me the other day. I was walking home from the train and this guy starts yelling at me “what’s up mami?” and he says “blah blah blah.” I just keep walking and ignore him. Then he starts sounding a little mean. That is when I decided to say something, but kept it nice. I said “hi, sorry but I am married.” He said “he didn’t care.” Then I said “I do care, and excuse me but I have to get home. Have a good night!” Then, he starts yelling “F – you, you F-in b&tch!” He sounded so nasty, I really thought he was going to hit me or something!
What a winner! :blah: LOL

Rywill – thanks! When is your birthday? He still hasn’t come out yet! (baby) LOL

Powandvonne – good luck with the parole! My husband heard about his interstate parole two weeks ago..they sent him a packet, he filled it out and sent it to Albany, now we are waiting…..pray for us! I really don’t know what I will do if he doesn’t get paroled to Philadelphia ????? I know how he is and he is not going to stay in NYC :( It’s only 4-5 months of parole, but he really needs and wants to be here! If they don’t approve it, I know he will violate again :( I will pray for you!

B.g. – Good luck with summer school!

Starzzmom – congratulations on your weight and interview! :thumbsup: You so deserve everything! I miss you! Lol…I know I didn’t know you that well, but the women at the prison are depressing……One day we were stuck waiting to check in from 9am – NOON….something like that, the computers were down…I tried talking to a few ladies and they looked at me like I was crazy! :blah: I remember feeling comfortable talking with you…….what’s their problems? We are all there for the same reason…geese! Did you ever notice that the women were like that there? I will rub the belly for you! :p LOL….or everyone at my job will LOLOLOL….they won’t leave my belly alone :(

Sorry so long everyone! I guess you can tell from this post that I have nothing to do! :rolleyes: I’m going to start organizing stuff now. Have a great weekend everyone! :cool:

I personally like Julio Miguel Robert. The Edward just doesn't flow with it.

Hey Everyone!! :wave:

Everything is good on my end, just trying to stay cool in this heat. Pow and I have had a rough couple of months, but we made it through, and we are closer and stronger than ever! :)
5 weeks and 2 days until Pow's parole hearing. I am sooo excited. I have a REALLY good feeling about this hearing! Wish us luck!

MrsG...Hope you have a nice time on your trailer visit for your anniversary!! :thumbsup:

PhiLLy....Hurry up with baby Julio!!! I want to see pics! LMAO. Keep your head up with the interstate parole issue. If parole isnt only but 4-5 months, I can't see why they wouldn't let him parole to you..your his WIFE! Sheesh. But keep me posted, and I will do the same!

Starzz...congrats on the weight loss :thumbsup: Keep up the good work. I just joined Curves for Women, and started their weight management program. I absolutely love it!!

I think it’s all dumb because I will probably have him before they schedule all this anyway! I can’t wait! My little Julito is coming! PhillyGurl, I can't believe they did noy put you in the hospital and help your labor with Potassin. When I had my son he measured small and they induced me with a dry labor (I had not ephased, my cervix wasn't thinned out, I had not dialated--nothing). My doctor was Johnny on the spot. I went to a specialist that measured my son and he was excatly on weight with his birth--he was 5 lbs 13 oz. After I had him they said that my sack wouldn;t have allowed for him to be a large baby anyway.

By the time you get this lil Julito (Pookey---with his handsome self) will be here.

Julio Miguel Robert :thumbsup: Robert means Bright. I agree with the others that it just flows. My son's middle name is Robert after my father.

Rywill – thanks! When is your birthday? He still hasn’t come out yet! (baby) LOL
He will be here long before my birthday---June 23. I was 2 months early. I was expected to be boren the end of August---but babies do come when they are ready!!!

Congratualtions.... to you and your husband, What a blessing! I hope all has gone well with your labor!

PillyGurl, we had to do the paperwork for the Interstate Compact. I filled mone out back in January with his parole hearing being in August. We couldn't finish everything until after we were offcially married. We wrote to both the the send state NY and receiving state Ohio. Not that we have an approval or anything. I agree with PowandVonne what is the big deal for those few months.

starzzmom congratualtions on the weight loss---you gor girl, keep it up. I start water aerobic tomorrow. I can't wait, i need to relieve some stress.

bntonyb I have to check out your post. Glad you had a good time.

I didn't make it to visit this weekend. :mad: Drama, and more drama. I guess I have to push it back for two more weeks. My husband must really be missing me, becasue I got a letter from him everyday last week except Tuesday.

Mrs G hope you had a wonderful anniversary.

PowandVonne glad you are feeling postive about his upcoming board. I'll pray for you both.

Hey out there LadyCee, WifeC and Jaynell. Hope everyone had a good weekend. I won't complain about the heat because just a few months (or weeks ago) it wouldn't get warm. I am glad the summer is here.

bntonyb - hey..thank you! I am addicted too :( I need to write my husband..He hasn't gotten a letter from me in three weeks....I can't get off PTO! LOL..or the pregnancy board LOL...

starzzmom - no baby yet :( hopefully soon for my sake! LOL..it is soooooooooo HOT :(

LadyCee - thanks...I have decided on Julio Miguel Robert :) Hope everything gets better for you!

Powandvonne - good luck with your parole and thank you! My husband's parole hearing is 7/28/2005....I pray they approve him to come here! I don't know what will happen if they don't :(

rywill - thanks! girllll..he might be here on your birthday! He does NOT want to come out! LOL...it's been 10days now since I've lost my mucus plug and have been 3cms dialated and 80% effaced...I haven't been having any contractions or braxton hick's...ughhhh he's going to be just like his father! LOL...stubborn LOLOLOL I did get the ultrasound and it showed that he was around 6lbs. They say he is a little small, but not enough to induce. They said everything looked good inside..the fluid, the sac, the placenta...etc... They said they never seen a child with such strong bones, so I guess that is good! :) I can't wait to meet my son! I seen his hair in the ultrasound...it was all spiked up lol...

Jaynell - thanks! and good luck with everything!

Hi All,
So thankful that it's cooler today. I hope it stays like this for a couple of days. I hate to complain about the heat because it seems like it was cold forever.
How's everyone doing
Mrs G,
I wanted to find out where I can post some information in reference to the merit time bill they are trying to get passed in N.Y.
My hubby sent me a sheet that has the names and phone numbers to different representatives in Albany for people to contact and let them know that they are in support of the bill. From what I understand, the bill expires in 2 1/2 months. The last time I was at GH, there was a group of women outside handing out flyers asking for support. Please let me know. Thanks

Hope all is well with everyone.....Peace.

Hey everyone! No baby yet :( but they stripped my membranes today at my 39week appointment..it's supposed to release hormones and get your labor going naturally....stripping membranes means they seperate your bag of waters from your uterus...all it did for me was give me major back aches and cramps......and for some reason I CAN NOT GO TO SLEEP ????????? Doc says no matter what happens, I shouldn't go past Friday the 24th of June...we'll see :) I think Julito is cozy in there!

I was just looking at my days for Julio to come home ticker...WOW time is flying, it's going to be in the 60's soon :)

Hope everyone is doing well!

Hey Everyone! I have to admit that I am not missing the SNOW!!! It has been pretty cold down here, but thankfully there is no snow. I do have my boots and stuff ready though as I head to NY next week to see my hubby. I am trying to get over this slight cold I have before then. All else is well.
There was a very nice man in the cell next to my husband in his early days in County. I cannot remember his name, unfortunately, but I do remember that he was from Georgia...originally from NY and had moved to Georgia. From what I understood his ex-wife was trying to allegate molestion of his daughter...and they extradited him from GA to NY.

Now this may not be your husband, and the odds are that it isn't. But I thought, what the heck. This man was very nice to my husband, and called and tried to help me when mine was beaten within an inch of his life.

I remember also that he was a corrections officer in a past life.

Anyway, IF that was your husband, what a coincidence that would be, huh?

Either way, wish you and yours the best, and that time will pass swiftly.

We're coming up on 1 year since his arrest. God what a rollercoaster it has been. We have a long way to go, but we are holding on and keeping our heads up. Together we are strongest and we will win, the system will not beat us!

you do not know why he has not written do you?....hang in there. I know how you feel, it sucks waiting, but maybe he has not idea how much it is hurting you, they are clueless sometimes, or maybe he was feeling down and could not write...

don't worry, you will here from him soon!

BTru2Me
06-18-2005, 11:23 PM
Thanks Mrs G!I'm trying!I know,there could be a ligit reason for him not writing!And yes,it does suck waiting!That's why I'm giving it until I get my mail on Mon. & if I still haven't heard from him,I'm going to write him & ask if there's anything wrong,if he's ok,if we're ok.Let him know subtly that I'm concerned.And if I don't hear from him by the end of the week,I'm gonna seriously think about heading up to see him so we can talk face to face.Maybe they're messing with the mail,who knows!At any rate,I'll hopefully have some answers soon!Take Care,B
PS:As this is a "how are you" thread,I hope everyone's doing way better than me!Peace & blessings to all!

Maybe there is just a problem with the mail. I had this same problem last month where I didn't receive any mail from my husband for over a week which was very unusual. He also was not receiving any mail from me. It turns out that the person that processes the mail was out for 3 days and the facility didn't bother to have anyone else process it. Can you believe that.
I hope you hear from him soon.

bntonyb - thanks girl! Sorry you are feeling that way! Now I am feeling VERY bad! I haven't wrote my husband for a month now......I love him to death! It's not because I am not thinking about him, I think about him 24/7....It's mostly because in my extra time I am on this site or a pregnancy web site or cancer web site that I go on....I am still working and very busy! I am going to write him right away! I bet he is feeling the same way! Maybe worse being in there! I'm sure he is thinking about you! I honestly don't know why I haven't written! I feel so bad now!

no baby yet :(

PhillyGurLL
06-19-2005, 06:33 PM
I was going to try to say I was in (for the g2g) a little late, by today at least, but I can't say that! :( There is NO WAY I can go now! NO WAY! I still haven't had my baby! If I have him this week, it will be too soon to take him out and if I haven't had him by Saturday, then i would hate to be so far away from home and go into labor!
I HOPE YOU GUYS HAVE FUN! Maybe we can do another one! HAVE SOME FUN FOR ME!

Thanks for asking. I wish I could come. I originally planned on attending but then I got my trailer date so that changed my plans. I really wanted to come so that I could meet you but as I'm sure you know, it's hard to make plans when you are dealing with a NY State facility. I hope you guys have a wonderful time and take some pictures. I will definitely make the one in Dec.

Hi everyone,
I'm so glad that PTO is back up. I was going through withdrawl.:) I hope everyone had a good weekend and were able to stay cool.:) It was so hot this weekend.
Mrs. G, how was the G2G Saturday. I know you guys had a good time. Well let me go so that I can try to go to sleep. I'm so excited about my trailer on Tues that I can't sleep.
Take care all.

Peace,
