Well my honey comes home Wed morning. I will be there to pick him up from the bus station at 6:30am. We didn't live together before and will not be now either. He will be staying with family. I do as well. Anywho our plans are to go get breakfast, go by his mom's work so he can see her real quick then go to his house so he can change, get his wallet, etc. Then he wants to get his hair cut. Later we will visit with my family a lil then we are getting a room. Heehee. I got him some goodies, like candy, a few shirts, some cologne, then some little things like razors, shaving cream, deodorant, etc. The next day we'll go see his probation officer and get all that squared away. I miss him so much. Can't wait!

My MWI is down to just 11 months. I've already started filling his dresser drawers with socks and stuff. Biggest thing when he gets home is planning our wedding for next September. We are also planning a camping retreat to get away and really get to know each other and trips up to introduce him to my family. Of course we are listing all the things we have to do to get him up and functionaing, like drivers liscense, etc. Main thing is just planning to be together, letting him adjust to freedom after 9 years inside.

I want to wait a year before I start buying him clothes but it will definitely be in the making. And, then I plan to just start making my space into a place he can call him. I think if I start late 2015 it would be good. Just hoping for the best. But, I know how excited I'm going to be when I do go get him a few things. I plan to put him some money to the side to because I am sure there are some things he'd like to purchase on his own. And, lastly when I have the official out date I'll go him a phone the day before. I want to keep things fairly smooth for myself and him.

PJ I think you have a good game plan. Mine will be home in about 8 months so I've been thinking about whether I should start buying some things. I'm thinking I'll start buy a little here and there. I thought about making him a care package for when he comes home filled with all kinds of goodies and necessities. He would love that! Just thinking of it makes me excited. It's definitely something to do to pass the time!

So far, he has a home to parole to, clothes and shoes to wear, and praise God, a job lined up and waiting for him to come home. Right now he's studying for his NC driver's license so he can take his road test the day after he's home. I also send him books on brick laying, tiling, flirting, etc as his job will be working in home improvement. My goals are to get new job, save some money, and grow my stockpile of non perishable items.

My hubby wants to take a trip back to where we spent our honeymoon! I am so for that, saving money up. Even won $50 recently off a lottery scratcher.

I have to be the worst one in this category. He will be at the HWH in less than 2 months and I haven't done anything. In my defense I'm in school right now and we just got back together after being separated for about 5 months. I'm planning to pick him up at the prison and drive him to the HWH. My understanding is that I'll be able to take him to the store the next day to buy things that he needs so we'll do everything together. I have to find a place where he will be able to live with me after he's sent home on HC, but other than that I don't have anything planned.

Oh, 2014isouryear, I wouldn't say you haven't done "anything"! Being there for him, now and when he gets out is quite a bit!

Been getting little by little. In June I plan on finishing things up. I don't want to be last minute doing things. I'm also in school earning my degree. So I wanna have things ahead of time. I'm taking vacation the first week he comes home but will still have school. So excited and ready!!!!

Wow! Kind of looks like not too many people post here so I wonder if people dont make it to the end day or what. But my husband got a reduction and is coming home in 2 years and 4 months which is way better then the 10 years we thought he would have making us both so old. He has been down for over two decades. But, he still makes my heart skip a beat and I love and miss him so much. I havent seen him in some time. He wants me to wait til he gets moved out of where he is to another prison or halfway house or whatever transition they have him in. Praying for him to come home quickly after his release. I think we are both a little scared. He thinks a halfway house is good to help him transition and I have to remember all the years he has done and all that it has done to him. But I dont think halfway houses are great at all and just want him hoe. I now after all these years the noise of our grown children and me could be overwhelming so finding a quiet space somewhere in our home or outside of it in a work area is optimal. But, space doesnt always permit. It looked like last year he might get out any moment but you now how they have different math at the BOP then in the rest of the world. I bought him just one outfit, wallet band belt. I do want to go buy a small dresser and start getting some clothes on sale when I can. It makes it so real somehow and through all these years you loose some hope and it makes it hard to believe it will really happen. But, I do want to be prepared. Just with maybe 3 outfits because I want him to pick out some of his own things. He said really garage sales and good will is fine. Clothes dont mean so much to him now. But, you can get clearance as cheap as good will. A little bit scared. I am super sick needing a transplant and dont keep things up as well as I should. I will be blessed to still be here when he gets out but I am optimistic. I guess that is part of the reason it is so hard to plan for his release. Just knowing that things could change with my health. But, I do need to plan for it and put away some money for his homecoming and all the expenses. Part of that being the monthly fee while on parole, drivers license, other costs of getting started. I figure start putting a little away in that new wallet I got him when I can. Prayers needed here that since I need a transplant I will get approved for SSDI. I can be frugal and save if I have that. I wish all of you the best on your home comings. I really am excited but anxious too. If he were home life would be so good though and I think of his warm arms at night and his soft kisses. I havent been kissed by him in over a year. Thats a long time. Night!

i can't believe i just voted/poll on the "less than 3 months answer."selection. I can't believe it. pero...(but)we are ready! I know i am. He does not want any;

1.)Loud noise lmfao(he say he will NOT miss the very loud aggressive noise in the prison system at all.Nope.)So,no noise.
The only "loud noise he wants to hear and mi self es ummm...#WarmSoftKissesLoveMakin'MeandHim after years of longing for each other,in ways most of us here would...wink.wink.Love making might wait til our "Favie holiday"xmas occasion, (Christmas eve night/and or to bring in the new year winter 2018,on new year's ya know.):smile: But definitely take mi bestie/bff/fiancee to a clothing store.He is so cute.Saying, from "walmart" i do not care ma.Just a few outfits.I am already getting it done and will let him go in with dinero $$$ to choose 1st time in OMG! 11 years almost,buy his own kicks(probably jordan's nike,)or tims (timbalands)too.winter stuff.
2.)We definitely shall lay in our nice soft Queen size bed,and just hold each other,for nights/days on end.(Weekend)til' he es out the 1/2 way house and

3.)Take a drive though 1st or 2nd weekend shall be also our 1st Road-Trip together.No one else.He said just him and i.No one else allowed.NO BODY. (He always remind me of this) and the road-trip shall encompass me and him,going to lovely NC., simply, to visit the folks in NC.He want to ask them,
(so sweet)for mi hand en marriage.Even though i am older decade or so older,he want to ask dad/mom for mi hand in marriage. He clearly is a young man late 20s,with an old soul...
Gotta love em! Old fashion ways=mature young man. I have faith both of us,with history/bond cemented/built,that we will be ok.God is good.Hugs and Blessings to all.
CONSISTENCY..."is key." If a man wants better, he'll show it, by treating you like el' reina.(his queen)
while proving it by such action loyalty + RESPECT.
Pensando en ti, mi -gman.
Without action, it's just not real. Don't settle. Live Well. Be happy,
because life is too short not to be."

I still have about 16 months until he is home but we are getting married before he comes home so we want to start having kids as soon as he is free �� Once it gets closer to his outdate I'll start getting things he needs and move my stuff from my house to our house which is in a different city. He always says he just can't wait to eat real food and be able to wake up next to me so when he comes home we are just going to enjoy each other

Not totally sure when he’ll be released. He has another parole hearing in August (crossing fingers)... but his MRD is in 2021.. so worst case scenario he’s in three more years. As for preparing, I recently picked up a few of his belongings and personal records. This Summer I’ll be flying out to check out what’s in his storage unit and ship whatever is important to him over to my (or what will be) our place. I plan on making a large framed collage of all our letters during his incarceration (something pretty) and in the middle of it having our marriage certificate inside of it (we got married this month). Just taking it one day at a time - don’t want to jump ahead of ourselves or give ourselves TOO much hope. He has zero desire to do anything but find a job and spend time with me so that’s easy to prepare for, lol.
