I think some of you may recognize me from some of the card swaps, but I've never participated in any of the threads cause it's hard to follow them, but I've got an iPhone now and it makes following threads so much easier! so hello everyone!

Just a little checking in. My surgery went well with flying colors. I am not in any pain whats so ever. I am just bored as heck with nothing to do. Sometimes I wish it was the Fall so I could be at work but I remember i get bored at work also..lol

Happy July to all....I posted a thread somewhere else already but thought I'd put it is here to so others would see it as well. I'm going in for surgery on my foot on July 10th and am pretty much stuck on my behind with my foot up till then and then for probably a good 6 weeks after. So...I thought with all my free time I'd do something that might help others or make someone smile. If anybody has any requests that they'd like me to send a card, etc. to please don't hesitate to let me know. No swap necessary....please pm me their info cuz I don't always make it on to check all the posts.
Glad to hear your surgery went well Lisa! And I hope everybody isn't melting in this heat we've been having.
Have a happy 4th of July ladies!

Barbara

Hey everyone, Happy July...... I hope everyone is doing ok.

Sadie I will be thinking of you on the 10th and hoping for a quick recovery
Lisa Congrats on the new grandbaby I bet you are super excited. I have many family members who are expecting at the moment but they arnt due until November and December (they always seem to come in groups)

ness, I'm glad your surgery went well, that is always wonderful news to hear


A little update from my end, It has been so hot here with such random weather, its a little scary actually. The winds have been so strong many have been without electric for days. So far we have been lucky and have kept ours on. We have officially hit code red here, which means no here, which has made both me and the kids very sad. They were so looking forward to going. We cant even have sparklers as if we are caught with any kind of firework at all its a 300.00 fine WOW cant afford that lol, and our cookout plans had to be put on hold as well as they have even banned those until we get some kind of rain. Anyways other than all that I guess we are doing ok, I didnt get to go see my Love this weekend, but His mother told me he was still kindly down (which makes me sad) But that he was doing ok, he just doesnt understand why most of the family wont even write him.. But its ok lol. Well anyways, I hope everyone has a fantastic fourth, and can stay cool in this awful heat..... Hopefully we all get some rain soon,

Hello from Jersey!
Happy July!
Sure has been hot- just about 100 degrees the entire weekend.
Our prisons here in Jersey do not have any air conditioning. Such intense heat for my love one. Maybe that's the norm for the USA-?

Have a good week...

Lil

Hey everyone, fighting with the kids to go to bed so I can get some sleep before tomorrow ... Summer, sun and water, you'd think they'd be wore out but not the case.
My dad is doing amazing, he even got in the pool with the kids for awhile tonight. He still has 1 surgery to go in for and then hopefully he can heal up and not have to visit the hospital so much. I'm just so happy and thankful to see him active and not always sitting in a chair struggling to breathe that I will never take another day for granted.

Miss Karen ... 1 day and a wake up til you see your J !! And even get to meet Jody !! Lucky girl !

It's great to see so many people posting and some new(er) faces.

Lisa2, I'm glad your surgery went better than could be expected !!

Barbara, I will keep you in my thoughts for your surgery !

Lisa pls tell miss Kia I am anxious to hear all about how perfect she is

Dona You have a visit coming up soon right ?? This month ? Sorry .. my memory is horrible lately

Natesgurl a lil early but I hope tomorrow is a WONDERFUL day for you !

Tims - I'm so sorry you can't see fireworks or even bbq, what a bummer. Will you do something special still indoors ? Or maybe go visit your hubby or go swimming ?

Kaori, happy bday to your cat I hope he doesn't steal the bed for to long!

Lil I hate thinking about the heat and that the majority of prisons have no ac. I have a pal in tx who was saying it reached 106 already....I just think that cannot be healthy.

Emelyn, I didn't get to call today but will tomorrow if you didn't get an answer yet. I was happy to see you posting in here I hope you post more !

Hi everyone. Well did my first 5 days in a row of work. Forgot how it was working 3rd shift. But I love my job and I will get used to sleeping during the day.

*Okay update on Dale. He should be home this week!!!! I am so excited. I haven't been able to sit down all day. I am a mess. So anxious. One moment I am excited the next I am balling my eyes out. Can't wait for the phone call to come get him.

Hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July. It is so hot and dry here they banned fireworks.

Happy 4th ya all!!

We will BBQ at my parents place, 3 miles from our place.
Then watch as they shoot off the firework display from a barge on the lake.
There will be many, many boats out on the lake.
Then back to work for me on Thursday night.

Be Happy and Please Be Safe!!!

Jan,
I am soooo very happy for you and Dale, my dear!!!
I told Josh, your guy is going home, and he was happy to hear that too!
It gives them all hope of what is to come for some of them.
