It’s too many days now. In two weeks the prisons will be overrun. I’m really worried because they just aren’t taking it serious in California as they should and now we’re the world leader in infections. 90 days is too long.

Also to add insult to injury, during this covid time they have stopped all the programs.. she was doing as many hours of programs to earn 20 extra days off. Now that is gone. Nobody can even earn their good time anymore. Its not a good situation.

You know, if an inmate is not going to be relased due to covid, they still need some sort of incentive. Giving them at least part of what they wold have earned should be part of the plan

At the current time, all that incentive stuff out the window. Everyone that has earned credits I guess has those credits and when they restart the program they can carry on... But we know that ain't gonna happen anytime soon. So in my girls case, she has worked very hard to earn some 20 days, but since the program wasn't completed, she will just have to run the time out. She would have to stay longer than her sentence to finish her programs hahahha

Thanks for posting up, it does brighten my spirits seeing the number just crawl forward home.

Hey...keep it together, not just for her, but for yourself. How can you expect her to stay strong if you don't? You cannot expect things of her if you do not expect the same & more of yourself You can do this! Write more, write more often. Take long walks, long bubble baths, take up a hobby. Just keep busy!

Nothing wrong with a little hard work....ok, nothing wrong with a lot of hardwork, provided you also allow yourself some quiet time as well: paint pictures and/or portraits; relax in a bubble bath (Yes, Benjiman, some men do take bubble baths); work crossword puzzles; you already cook - I think that's fantastic! What's your specialty or favorite things to cook?

I like to make southern breakfast. gravy and all that. It has always been my favorite thing to do on mornings when times are good. The last few weeks though I have been practicing on how to use oil like frying stuff. Not healthy but I don't care. I made fries the last time and managed to make them better than I ever tasted at a restaurant. They were amazing. Last night though I switched it up and made orange chicken!! I was impressed when it turned out so crispy and then done and juicy in the middle. A friend bought me a rice cooker the other day so I had to think how to use it hahah

Today I dont know what I will be making, might make a breakfast with a few eggs and toast and ham, who knows.

So close but so far. I remember when my girl was home, on a Saturday I will wake up make coffee and a big breakfast with potatoes, biscuits gravy and bacon. Just sit out on the patio and enjoy each others company. She is Mexican so if she cooks she will make me Chilequelas. So damn good. We both always loved to be in the kitchen together.

Tough these many mornings waking up without her.

Does your Southern Breakfast of gravy and all that include homemade biscuits Growing up, Sunday mornings were the big breakfast day...I've kept that tradition. Only on Sundays will you get sausage or bacon with gravy, eggs & homemade biscuits. Momma didn't roll out & cut the dough. She patted them out, which made the biscuits sorta bumpy-looking. And they were wonderful. I don't roll mine either, but I do have a shortcut: form the dough into a rectangle about the size of....well, I use an 8 x 9 baking dish. Put the biscuit dough in the baking dish, cut the dough into even pieces, brush melted butter on top & bake. Supposed to get 12 biscuits...I get 9 Hey, so I like bigger biscuits

Yeha I try to make my own and sometimes though if I'm lazy i make from the can. I always make the gravy as I know fresh with sausage or bacon in it and cook the flour in the pan and oil just right. Those mornings are a gift. I cant wait to wake up and make my girl breakfast.

Wow moving into the 50’s! I’m sure as time gets closer each day lasts longer. It’s great to hear that it’s so close for you.
